Sony just created a trend for bad image quality. The most important factors in an imaging sensor are the sensor size and the pixel pitch. And this is where they failed (1/2.6 instead of larger 1/2.3" and 1um instead of 1.5um), opting to look good on paper with "22.5 MP" and "image stabilization". Look at the XPeria Z5. Bad image quality, LG V10 has much better image quality with a lower megapixel count sensor.
Zahid Hasan, 16 Feb 2016that ois !!!That's just intentionally way too shaky hands when it's off. Of course it lets you a bit of smoothing, but inlens OIS won't let you smoothing anywhere close to standalone IS hardware, like Steadicam and similar.
Its great, maybe they got something new for themselves... Still its behind with taking raw shots and real manual setting(and with not so difficult camera UI settings). They think they did great job by dividing camera shots with video mode, but I'm fan of single tap to record either shot/4k or slowmotion/... Seems to me like they try to copy instead of doing something new in this field.
Eske Rahn, 16 Feb 2016Uh... One micron is BAD unless you got a REALLY fast lens... ;-( With Green light you need F1... morePanasonic cm1 have 1 micron pixel and its is the best camera smartphone photography in low light till now even release 2014 so sony in the right way.sony should use ois for good in low light
Uh... One micron is BAD unless you got a REALLY fast lens... ;-(
With Green light you need F1.6 or better - even harder requirement for red light.....
It is basic physics, look up Rayleigh Limit
1.220 * Wavelength * F < W
Mike, 16 Feb 2016"despite the smaller pixel size, Sony claims there is no drop in image quality in low light si... moreof course is marketing from Sony, i belive there some improvements in low light but turn night in day is imposible!
So, lets wait and see...2x2 is 8 not 5! xD
"despite the smaller pixel size, Sony claims there is no drop in image quality in low light situations.".
Yeah, and 2 x 2 is 5.
will be interesting to see how other chinese phone makers make better use of this sensor
Both are really impressive. Can't wait to see it in smartphones soon.
