tpanos, 17 Nov 2014Lumia 1020 and Nokia 808 Yeah, great camera and...?
doesn't matter how hard sony tries. Lumia cameras with zeiss optics and pureview are far better than any other phone.
Anonym, 17 Nov 2014You do not need to be an "Engineer" to look at a picture and evaluate its quality, b... moreWell if more people would "know their bits" about photgraphy...they wouldnt. base their opinions on camera automode ...but in fact on quality of photos through those bits exactly
darkraver, 17 Nov 2014Well, so many ignorant comments here, it is laughable... Guess xperias are for a bit more p... moreHaters going to hate. Anyway, sonys previous camera algorithm may not be the best. But to say it's bad and the pictures suck is just ignorant and unprofessional. I just skip those hate comments. Don't let them bother you.
I dont understand one thing. Why the other sample image is from 3.2 Mp sensor where new Sony sensor using 21MP resolution?
sony should also concentrate on over heating and battery back up problems....
Anonymous, 17 Nov 2014Hello... All these experts criticizing Sony cam quality, but are any or them actual Engineers?... moreYou do not need to be an "Engineer" to look at a picture and evaluate its quality, but you do need to know your bits about photography.
Maybe that's what's failing at Sony, too many Engineers and too little Photographers.
Well, so many ignorant comments here, it is laughable...
Guess xperias are for a bit more profined camera users, that do not use only auto camera mode
FrostJoke, 17 Nov 2014I kinda do notice that trend about SONY when it comes to imaging on smartphones. If the sam... moreCorrect me if I'm wrong but isnt Zeiss just optics/lenses? Image sensors are a different story. I do agree with you on the software/algorithm part.
Benjamin Bradford UK, 17 Nov 2014Still does nor beat the 18 month old Lumia 2020or the Nokia Symbian 41 mp finale...Lumia 1020 and Nokia 808
Anonymous, 17 Nov 2014no it isn't, both imx220/240 have 1.2 micron pixelsYes - but IMX230 has 1.12um pixels. But the difference is less than 10%. But now I see that it says that also a 16MP is planned. Thats perhaps an upgrade of the IMX240 with phase detection focus. I'd rather have larger pixels for better low-light sensitivity. I wonder if 4 neighboring pixels can be treated as one for better low light sensitivity.
Hello... All these experts criticizing Sony cam quality, but are any or them actual Engineers??? Not! Hehe
Benjamin Bradford UK, 17 Nov 2014Still does nor beat the 18 month old Lumia 2020or the Nokia Symbian 41 mp finale...well sonys 8 mp in iphone beat it very badly!!!!in DXOMARK
HDR by Sony phones looks like regular photo with decreased contrast an increased color.
FrostJoke, 17 Nov 2014I kinda do notice that trend about SONY when it comes to imaging on smartphones. If the sam... moreExactly, it's like Sony engineers can't develop good processing algorithms for their own hardware while the others can. Maybe Sony doesn't want to compete with their own compact cameras, but that would be hard to believe.
