First Sony Xperia Z1 Compact camera samples

First Sony Xperia Z1 Compact camera samples
Coming straight from the 20.7-megapixel G Lens camera of the Xperia Z1 Compact, the photos we have right here will allow you to have a first glimpse at the photographic capabilities of Sony's Mini Cooper of a smartphone.

Of course, while browsing through the gallery blow, we should all keep in mind that the unit we've used to capture these images wasn't running final software, so the results when using a retail unit might be different (hopefully, better). But, all in all, it's hard not to get excited about the Z1 Compact and its camera... after all, it's the same G Lens camera we've come to appreciate in the Xperia Z1! Specs-wise, it's a pretty advanced module with its 20.7 megapixels, F2.0 aperture, 1/2.3" camera sensor and 27mm focal length. Still, we won't go as far as to comment on the quality of the photos below, due to the reasons we've outlined just several lines above. With that in mind, here's how the Xperia Z1 Compact's camera seems to perform in low-light conditions as of now.

Why are this people talking so much about the camara. It's not that great really remember 20.1MP on paper it's nothing I feel like my old Samsung galaxy SIII Takes better pictures and it's just an 8MP not to mention the SIV.

Remember that it is probably a demo model, which is a bit cheaper.
