Sony Xperia Z1 Augmented Reality and Photo Filter camera samples

0. phoneArena 06 Sep 2013, 05:47 posted on

It looks like Sony has done a terrific job with the Xperia Z1. Not only does the handset look and feel great, but it also sports a versatile camera with an ambitious camera sensor and a bunch of fun camera modes. Of course, you didn't think that Sony's going to put such a camera in your pocket and won't stuff a bunch of cool photo filters in it, did you? Well, the good news is that the Z1 packs not only your standard photo filters, but some fancy AR (augmented reality) effects as well! The AR effects are basically some beautiful...

well said bro g2s samples are best v have seen so far for the 13 mp unit and the bezel less screen in the front is a real eye catcher
but sony z1 is not too far in the game

"If you don't like it don't use it."

Exactly! If I don't like it, I don't use it and if I don't use it, then it is uselles for me. By saying that you just got proved what I have said in my comment #8. ;)

the same website made comparisons in which Lumia 1020 camera was thrashed by Lumia 920,Nexus 4,iphone 5 and Htc one
which is a joke

you just need your eyes to see how the g2 is not superior in those samples. the first 3 photos obviously belong to the sony cameras. the macro is obviously a drawback for the z1 but i believe that's just a matter of some refocusing needed. the last images of the "canon" make the g2 look sharper because it is zoomed out compared to the sony images that are zoomed in. if you look at them at similar zooming/distance, the sony images look crisper. you can see the heavy noise reduction and artifacts on the g2 for the canon image.

I guess I could agree that overall the Z1 is slighly better than G2. But I was hoping the Z1 was much better than G2, S4, IPhone 5 and the likes...

Not impressed as I was hoping the Z1 would be the cameraphone for me (it has everything else it seems).

Sony zed one proves that reviewers are biased wussy fan girls

this weighs almost as much as the Lumia 920 and definitely more than the Lumia 1020 yet the Lumia were called "heavy" while this is "premium"

that's why you should never take tech reviews at face value and always try the device before you write it off

How can polycarbonate aka plastic be a premium material?

posted on 06 Sep 2013, 06:28 7

20. kobainez (Posts: 302; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)


Xperia Z1 is made out of aluminium and glass that's why they call it PREMIUM unlike Nokia lumia 1020. It's heavy for a plastic body with a 4.5 inch screen device

30. gazmatic (Posts: 625; Member since: 06 Sep 2012)


Don't give me this whole polycarbonate vs metal nonsense

there are plenty of metal phones and none are considered "heavy"

this is a cop out because they don't like windows phone

magnesium is more premium than aluminum but everybody still called the surface heavy

it's an obvious bias

but of course it's MS so it must be attacked while anything Android gets a pass

just like NSA... You would think google and apple had nothing to do with it

You are the first to say that when holding the l1020 it doesn't feel premium.. I smell bias? The phone build quality is complete top notch. Reach much?the 1020 isn't a s4 here

Is that all you have to say? Pull string one liners? You obviously have never held the 1020, also how do you know this Sony will feel premium? Have you held it yourself? I'm not saying its not but if you haven't held it then you sir are bias. Just stop you're embarrassing yourself

Z1 has larger display
SD800 is 20 gms heavier than those normal chips
Z1 is waterproof
Z1 is more premium such as alumnm. and Glass
so shame on Lumia 1020 which is heavier

I really do like Sony, but I have to say that the AR effects are just a waste of processing power :S (Filters are good though)

I wonder does this have ISO software? If so then that's awesome... If not this camera is practically useless to me. I hope its the former.
