I can't see the pictures until they are approved by a moderator. You could upload them to box or dropbox or drive and post the link here

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

Why cant get deasent macro  pictures ? My old nokia N8 take a lot better ones.

 

I bought this camera for macro pictures for and spend 600euros for nothing?  I am very disapointted and try to return my phone back but assume that it dont work. Sony send again and again new mobile. so i must use my old Nokia N8 or buy Lumia for better camera.

 

This very badly Slightly frowning Face I am very disapointed on my first Sony and last.

Got it from Amazon: Z5Compact, production week 40.

Will try to repait via amazon and keep you informed.

 

BTW: even with bad weather its also good to use monitor (as it has uniform light) with small font to check (see 3rd picture with 4 corners and middle)

Z5 images horribly distorted

I also have the "left side blurry problem" on my Z5, and the camera is so far the worst of all the phones I have (Samsung GS5, Nexus 5X, iPhone).

 

Due to the very wide angle, the corners are horribly distorted. A picture of a spherical ball makes it look like a silly oval if the ball is in the corner.

Re: Z5 images horribly distorted

The thing with wide angle and high resolution of the sensor is actually good - if one needs wide angle (e.g. for outdoor photographs) it is usable for the phone -with distortions taken into account- as for correcting distortions optically, the lensh should be much more bigger and won't fit in the phone. And for regular photos, if the distortion bother you -  just use zoom. I mean serios- the most photographs people shoot are photographed way too far from the object -  some photography gurus even say that its wise to make additional 1-2 steps towards object before making the photograph.

Re: Z5 images horribly distorted

Distortion is quite "normal" for spherical lens... And the lenses aren't human's eye, We also use spherical imaging of the world but other "glitches" are corrected inside brain, producers should think about making square lens to correct things, but that would make the image thinner, relation in it is also bout lenses size, It's very possible in Z5 to see bigger distorsion in corners than other - smaller lens phones.
Even in past Z1 and Z2 had corner distorsion and spherical-like imagening of random straights, so it's a thing to accept as "that's the way it should be, it always was."

The corners of photo are placed on the sides of the lenses sphere, so the sphere bends the light and affects object's geometry as any sphere would.
