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

Still nothing from Sony.

However, I have had a great discussion with my mobile network, but we both want to see what Sony Mobiles next move is.

I'm also disappointed to see that many other people are still experiencing the same issue as myself and others! Either way, either Sony respond to my Letter Before Action and deal with it or I'm getting a different handset (possibly Samsung S6 Edge+) and ditching Sony all together. I wouldn't expect a response from them until next week or the week after due to the holiday season.

 

That said, I hope everybody had a great holiday season/Christmas and I wish you all the best for 2016! 

 

Let's hope Sony solve this issue and fast.

Unfortunately not. Sony is too busy blowing it's own trumpet releasing a pink coloured Z5!

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

It's baffling as to why Sony doesn't respond on such a major issue, after all the false marketing on how great the camera is and claiming it to be the world best smartphone camera. I sure hope they can fix the blurry edges/ focus issues with an update soon.
I get blur around the edge of all the entire image and not just the left corner. There definitely is an issue regarding the lense /focus. Also I compared the picture sample with my Nexus 5, surprisingly theNexus 5 captures far better detail in pictures especially when pinching to zoom on the image.


The z5 lacks sharpness and details in close up macro shots, as soon as you zoom in everything is blurry and noisy. I hope again this issue can be fixed via a software update, its infuriating as i upgraded to the z5 for its camera quality yet am left dissapointed.

See pictures below for comparison:

Z5

red1.jpg

Image is very blurry around the edges, severly lacks detail in sharpness and clarity. Its as though the autofocus can't focus correctly, i've tried it in manual mode with multi focus and get the exact same results. One area is focused and the rest of the image is blurred/blown out.

 

Nexus 5

red2.jpg

 

Even though its only an 8 megapixel camera, it processess images far better in terms of clarity, sharpness and detail. Everything is in focus here, nothing is blown out nor is blurry. If you comapre the two images you can see a major difference in quality, the Nexus 5 surpirsingly trumps the Z5 in focal length, detail, sharpness and clairty. (Especially around the limbs)

 

I am praying that it is a software issue on Sony's end and that an update can miraculously save the Z5 camera performance. Its sad to see such a high end phone camera be let down by such poor optimization.

 

PLEASE Sony fix this issue.

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

Hey,

the Sony Xperia M2 seems to have an update that improves the quality by a lot:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/xperia-m2/general/camera-quality-comparison-182-vs-175-t3281756

 

what do you think, might this be a step forward for the Z5c as well (if the update arrives there)?
