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

There hasn't been kicking off with the S6 because there isn't the same problem, the legitimate problem is the 10-20% whole left side being blurred, because of this very legitimate and real problem, everyone is looking for blurring at the sides, finding the corner blur and thinking that's it when in fact it's not.
Working for 2 major networks you'll be very aware of peoples behaviour when a "known problem" is on a handset, it's 100% the first thing they look for, and in this case some are confusing corner blurring for the real issue which is misaligned lens causing a whole side to be blurred.
But also, techradar did take shots with corners blurred...

But because there was no "known issue" it's just accepted.

@JayDee1282 No problem at all. I would hold off for a 2nd opinion at least, but in my humble opinion there are a few of them that show signs of blurring, which would suggest your handset suffers from the same issue. Slightly frowning Face


Added some new pictures. Am really a bit confused what to do now.

Sorry, can't see a REAL problem on your device. Mine does have it.

 

Your one , just seems to have a reasonable wide angle fisheye effect. Slightly smiling Face

Well, my "problem" is that this one is my second device and I don't want to waste € 650,00+ on a device which has an obvious defect. The first one had a much more obvious blur.

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

Take a picture with loads of texture in it, like a load of stones or textured wall.
If only the extreme corners are blurry, it's OK.

This is what I'm trying to get across,

A wide angle lens very close to a small sensor will make the extreme edges / corners look distorted because the lens is at a greater curve away from the sensor at these points.

It is a far cry from the blatantly bad lens alignment seen in the first half of this thread.

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

Well my 2nd unit has just arrived. So let's see what's what.

 

I'll look at some of the earlier images posted, later on this afternoon.

 

@JayDee1282 your earlier post this morning with the 6 shots uploaded to Dropbox showed some blurring (again it is my opinion) and din't look normal.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us!
