Xperia Z1 Camera producing extremely hazy pictures

 Just bought my Xperia Z1 a week ago. After figuring out how to extend battery life, I moved on to the camera. The festival of lights here in Mumbai  was a good time to use it. But to my utter dismay I was getting horrible pictures with a sort of haze and a yellow tint. I tried it both on manual as well as auto but both seem to have the same issue. As do night and daytime. I am putting up the pictures. Please do suggest if there's something I am doing wrong or there's a problem with this specific camera.

Re: Xperia Z1 Camera producing extremely hazy pictures

Have you checked your lens? Make sure its clean.

Do you use any protective case or plastic film that covers the camera or flash?

Re: Xperia Z1 Camera producing extremely hazy pictures

Actually I got this very strong feeling that the z1 camera is erratic in term of performance cos i experienced poor quality shots even when using its superior auto function. I oso realised that the camera lens(the black portion) is situated slightly different within the transparent glass that houses the camera in almost every model of the z1 i have come across and mine is really not centralised.

Re: Xperia Z1 Camera producing extremely hazy pictures

The still you have posted looks very smoky. You might have captured these shots when your house is full of smoke could be of due to instant sticks smoke or may be crackers smoke.

Try again tomorrow or some time. Because Z1 is very good on camera. Please take above caution and try, let us know the results.

Happy Deepawali.
