Re: camera pink spot

@ThomasWigg, I believe what you have is a hardware issue. Are you covering the camera with your thumb/fingers? If so, try covering it with something more solid where light does not seep through.

 

I had a defective rear camera: http://forum.xda-developers.com/z3/general/xperia-z3-camera-purple-tint-lots-noise-t2917459

 

Try to take a photo while covering the camera. If the photo is not completely black or you see particles (white, purple, pink, etc.), then your camera is most likely defective.

Re: camera pink spot

Same here , In certain light u can see this pinkish color i dont think its a hardware issue since all other photos seems to be fine i think it has something to do with the white balance.

Re: camera pink spot

would you please share some photos without pink spot?

and try to take photos of white and grey (wall or book for example),

this is so annoying.

Re: camera pink spot

With greater inspection its correct im having the same round form in a fully white picture. but i seem to have a purple glow around the center and not a purple dot itself. It seems to be the worst when im taking 20 MP photos. i think its a lens issue as you can see when the backlens reflects it gives a purple glow. so this is most defenately the issue.

 

This makes you wonder why didnt they tested this.

 

Thanks for sharing. yet another argument to not buy another sony after this one.

Re: camera pink spot

that's what we're talking about...

a pink or green spot in the middle.

 

and of course the spot is not so obvious in a colorful picture,

but it appears when the scene is not that complicate/colorful,

such as:
