Real Life Experience with the Sony Xperia Z1 camera

Look back one article at the Apple Event in Plymouth, UK.

All those photos were taken with the Z1. I took 30 in total plus some video. 23 shots were too blurred to use. Even the last 7 are slightly blurred.

Low light just doesn’t at present give good results on the Z1.

  1. From yesterday:
    “However, despite my findings I decided not to buy a new iPhone but a Sony Xperia Z1. I simply prefer a larger screen than the 4 inches of the iPhone.”
    Liking how quickly you change your mind – not for the first time 🙂

    Anyway, having looked at a couple of the photos from the Z1 on the last post at full resolution you can quite clearly see some ghosting around some figures – particularly towards the edge or around people who are moving. Is the camera trying to do some kind of HDR or Image Stabilisation trick and failing? If it’s HDR then that could explain it – can it be disabled?


    1. No its not the first time, strangely 🙂

      Photos snapped in superior auto mode. No HDR mode. I realised they were blurry and kept carefully trying to take another shot and then another, and was getting frustrated at the ghosting. The photos I put in to the article were the best. There were some terrible photos.


  2. iso is surprising low. Why iso 80 in low light?
    Shutter speed 1/32 when people are moving is too low.
    Is it impossible to put limits to iso? Or shutter speed?
    Anyway, thank you for your info, again!

    And happy shootings with your new iPhone!
