[SP] Improve Camera or Image Quality in Sony Xperia SP
Hello there Xperia SP Users,
Now we all know that we are having a disappointing camera, maybe its only the software,
Here are some tips to drastically improve image quality,
1.) Update Your Firmware/Software to latest version.
2.) Please Turn off Mobile Bravia Engine (It just increases saturation and contrast while viewing pictures in Gallery/Album App which also increases the noise)
3.) While using camera set options as follows,
Scene Mode :
As your preference, 8MP/7MP or 5MP
Off (Turn it off for except very very low light)
Focus Mode :
While Balance :
Daylight (Gives pictures a slight warm effect)
On or Off
100 or 200 (100 is recommended)
+2.0 if ISO - 100 +1.0 if ISO - 200
Image Stabilizer :
4.) Take your pictures using these settings.
5.) You might notice that you need to change ISO or Exposure Settings after clicking every pic, do it.
6.) Pictures will be much better than before.
7.) Final Touches - if you use Aviary(Image Editing App) , Edit Picture > Enhance > Balance
You will find that the picture looks rich and enhanced, please note this balance effect will only look
good if you've used "Daylight" as White Balance while capturing the picture.
8.) Further in Aviary you can decrease the sharpness to one to two stages (reduces noise details).
I hope Sony improves the camera in next updates (Android 4.3 or next firmware update)
