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

What do you think, is pictures blurry on the left side?
More noticeable is In the 16:9 format, in the 4:3 is less, but still.
Z5 Compact, Black, rev.2, last firmware.

Great, seems my posts are disappearing now! 2 posts I've made and they have both disappeared. What gives?

@id4vs,

 

Thank you for the link.

 

For the text photo, did you take in 16:9 or 4:3? I'm trying to compare side by side and the dimensions are different.

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

I've just been having a chat with a professional photographer and she has given her opinion regarding this issue. I only mention that as I am currently collating evidence and building my case up against Sony Mobile should the matter proceed to court.

She has recommended to try and measue how much blur is occuring. It's all good and well taking photographs outdoors and looking at it that way, but an actual measurement would be quite handy. She has suggested the following:

  1. You need to print the above Resolution Chart out as large as you can and stick it on a flat wall
  2. Then place the camera as square to it as possible and take a picture. You want the image to fill the viewfinder with each corner the same distance from the camera.
  3. Try to get plenty of light on it but don't use the camera flash or light
  4. This is a link to a Google Image Search so you can download the image directly from there and print it off. This is a good one to use on FLICKR
  5. A3 size might be the way to go.
  6. Don't zoom in to make it fit
  7. It needs to fill the frame if possible as it will be the edges that are more likely to be blurred. You need the get the camera exactly in the middle with the chart square in the frame.

 

Do the above and post the results. If you don't have a printer at home, then drop by an internet cafe or library and ask them to print off an A3 copy. Then post the results.

4:3

My photo is blur, but it is only in the corners. Overall this is the best that I could find. Rev.1 - 15W44

Not 100% right. However, you can definitely see the blur more clearly and it looks quite bad to me.

 

Image 5 is probably the best shot to use.

Completely disagree. Look at the top left corner of the 5th image in that album. In fact look at the top left corner of all the images. If you're still not seeing it then I suggest seeing an optician. It's as clear as day to me.
