See attachment photos the head around the lens surrounding site all the irregular distorted .
this is not a simple wide-angle distortion but a rare irregular distortion.Try to shoot real person in different angles, the problem will be more serious then the attachment screen take photos , you simply can not choose one normal photos
Is this issue can fix by the update ???
XZS forum are the same problems have been 2 months still no fix !
Now seems the whold world xzp is the same problem, the flat shooting distortion is not the main problem, just for your reference .The main problem is the three-dimensional scene, when shooting three-dimensional scene will enhance the perspective several times, seriously beyond the reach of the human eye perceived acceptance , also seriously beyond the distortion of other mobile phones,The closer result you get will distortion more, No matter how you compose, how to adjust the distance and shooting angle,As long as leaving the center little center area, all will be serious distortion,again seriously beyond the distortion of other mobile phones!see carefully all the picture in all pages from different users , Portrait photography and flat grid shooting.
