Re: Z5C blurry camera images / more blur on the left side

Same issue here - super blurry on the left-hand side of pics. The support reps on chat just said they have no confirmation of the issue. Debating getting a refund vs hanging on for an official confirmation here.

Re: Z5C blurry camera images / more blur on the left side

Sorry to hear that you're getting blurry pictures with the camera.

 

This is something i have forwarded internally but i'm afraid i don't have any information about what the cause could be yet. As soon as i do i will let you know.

@Rickard

 

Thank you for the response! Now we at least know that we are not being ignored. Let's hope that this is not hardware related issue... But the fact, that the blur moves to the right side after flipping the phone 180 deegres worries me... : (

Re: Z5C blurry camera images / more blur on the left side

Great, it took like 15 pages for someone at Sony to even say a word that will give hope to most of the people who bought this phone. Blurs on left and right sides, no burst, badly done camera2 API with 3rd party aps crashing at shutter speed control, out-of-focus pictures when trying to do macros, slower picture taking compared to rest of flagships, bad postprocessing algorithms, etc. I vote for a comple camera app redraw, or at least give full camera2 API so people can use fair 3rd party apps that work.

The problem is not in the software. There Rev2 there with a camera all right!
In Rev 1 camera misses to the left and right sides.

Re: Z5C blurry camera images / more blur on the left side

1. Can anyone confirm that all revision 2 z5 and z5c don't have this blur issue or at least that your rev2 phone does not have this blur issue and possibly other camera issues? 

2. How do i know for sure what is a phone rev number?

3. How long does it usually take until a phone with a new rev arrives to stores?

Re: Z5C blurry camera images / more blur on the left side

I had two Rev2 phones, the first one's camera produced very bad results with strong blur to the left half of the photo.

The second one is much better but still slight blur on the left edge of the photo.

The rev number is marked on the box with the other ID numbers (well it was on mine).
