Have you guys seen this links? It doesn't seem to be a  hardware/software issue, it's a general phenomenon in mobile cameras with larger sensors.

Re: Pink spot with xperia z3 camera

Sony clearly has not mentioned anything about this issue. There was a person here that said that it was "normal", but I think that is an excuse. It is not normal, and if Sony knew about this problem, why risk its customers? It makes no sense. Why didn't they put in a 16MP camera or something to be on the safe side?

 

Apple uses Sony cameras on their iPhones and guess what makes their image look great? "SOFTWARE". Sony is known to create great hardware but they clearly have difficulty in software, period. 

 

This Lollipop update better include an overhaul of the camera system. I don't care if it gets delayed or whatever as long as it is tested multiple times on test devices, especially the "CAMERA" on low light situations. I rather wait a long time and get a stable update than some half baked update so that more users complain. 

 

The camera lenses seems fine, I highly doubt that's the problem. Maybe they can add some sort of algorith that detects a pink spot and tries to fix the color. Of course it would have to recognize whats real pink and whats fake pink. 

 

I'm still hoping Sony cares about its product and its customers and try to give us a surprise. If not, well there goes their reputation. How about some beta updates like Apple so that real world users can test?

Re: Pink spot with xperia z3 camera

@Max91 two different phones, take the Xperia U to a sony repair center to get it evaluated. It was an issue with some of the Xperia Us back in the days, check the forum. it wasn't a pink spot but a purple dot

The Xperia Z2 doesn't have the same camera module as the Z3

pink spot on photos

I have pink spot on my photos and it's annoying. Will Sony give any update for this problem or should I send my phone to service? Thanks

Re: pink spot on photos

Good Question! We have to wait a software upgrade ore we have to manage the problem (pink spot) with the assistant (hardware problem)? Thanks.
