Another user has the same issue. Tried clear data, reset to factory default, but none works.
Here is a photo taken by XZs, Chrome is like squeezed.


This is shot by Z3c for comparetion.

BTW how to insert pics to xda?

I was trying to check for any issues regarding heating and freezing apps, and I saw this post. I found out that I have the same issue. The skews are killing me. I cant unsee it now. :(

Same with my phone too but its not that easy for me to detect. It kind of gives a slight reverse fisheye effect(if that's even a thing). But if I never came across this thread I would've never noticed. Hopefully this can be fixed. If not, then I'm screwed. It's a shame that the camera was one of the only things updated from the XZ yet it's faulty. Smh

Have you tried video mode? It looks the way better, those distortions all gone.
你试试摄影模式,貌似在摄影模式下显示的是正常的,起码我分辨不出来了。
Thanks for pointing out, same as I, no distortion found under video mode.
Seems it's software issue. Hope it get fixed in the next update :(

I've yet to investigate with my own XZs but this looks like barrel distortion to me and is perfectly normal on a 25mm wide-angle lens. (funnily the XZ is rated wider at 24mm?)

Re: XZP camera has serious distortion issue
Kindly read the posts here. It's normal for the lens, but it's not normal for a high end smartphone with the problematic lens correction profile.
