Sony Xperia Z: "Chasseur d'Images" reviewBy Chasseur d'Images - Friday August 02 2013 Mobile Review
Reference Pattern DxOMark
These two enlargements (central part of the pattern below); a photo in low light under tungsten lighting and another in full light show that the Sony Xperia Z delivers consistent pictures which will appear very satisfactory on the screen of a phone or a tablet, but these images are limited if we move to a purely photographic use, with enlargements and printouts. The noise is well managed, but when enlarged the 13 Mpix images of the Xperia Z lack both texture and fine detail.
Autofocus - repeatability and accuracy
The colors are very well rendered, regardless of the conditions of lighting, with natural tones and without marked drift. On outside subjects, in daylight, a few white balance errors were noted.
