Great.. sell the XZ1 now....

I have a Nikon for great photos.It makes much better photos than the RX100m4 but I need a phone with a camera which is atleast somthing good as the Galaxy S6..... Unfortunately no Xperia cameras can compete with it.... poor sony

Re: Sony, you able to make your fans happy - camera improvements list

Well, most likely sony has an agreement that if they sell their camera to iphone and samsung, they must sell the better version (sensors & image processing) from sony's own mobile phone. 

 

Just like Sony TV, which amazing, better than Samsung and LG, eventhough Sony TV are made by LG. This one for example : https://www.theverge.com/platform/amp/ces/2017/1/10/14222986/sony-bravia-oled-lg-display-ces-2017

 

 

I wish I could be happier using my XZ1, but really, nothing special with this phone, also i got a defective shadow display.

 If it is true then Sony violates that agreement with Sony RX100 (M1-M5), because another photo cameras are not better Slightly smiling Face

Re: Sony, you able to make your fans happy - camera improvements list

I'm sure that this isn't that reason. Problem is not in hardware, problem is in software. Sins Xperia S, Sony with camera, goes on it's own way, with aggressive noice canceling soft. Every pixel is owerwritten even in very good light condition... Why? Why we can't have picture in RAW? I thing/know , it's just because, RAW is clear that what can your hardware. And sensors in XZ1, cane do more, that we see right now.

It's just my opinion.

Sorry for my English.

maybe because it's on different business?

Maybe because it's on different business/divison? They decided to use their own best sensor & not to sell them at premium price.

After reading all this, looks like the message is: stay away from sony, they stopped to care about us, customers. 

 

Really disappointing that they didn't answer at all to this thread.

Re: Sony, you able to make your fans happy - camera improvements list

Its not about agreements, its not about sensors its about OIS, EIS and post processing. Sony hasn't implemented OIS or EIS in xz1 and in addition, sony camera software is very poor in post prossesing. If you get in manual settings, choose 1 sec ss, a fixed iso and place the phone on a tripod. Then you ll find out that sensor is fine but lacks of the things that i mentioned.

I see all kind of suspense. Nerd Face

Don't worry what's behind it.

Just buy what you like most and is affordable.

 

Be happy with what you bought.

Although it's a pity when you are disappointed in a product you buy.
