Hello!

I'm the owner of a brand new Xperia Z3, which I bought in major part for the camera, but i noticed a pink spot in the middle of many picture, most of the time when i take a picture of plain white/grey/brown surfaces. It seems that i'm not alone since at least 10 other owners reported the same problem on the Xperia support forum:
http://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Xperia...839421#U839421

I post some pictures that I and other owners uploaded on the forum:

Seeing these threads makes me get tired of the Sony Xperia Z3 as a whole. Reminds me of the time of the HTC One M7. Here is another related thread on a defective camera or software processing: http://forum.xda-developers.com/z3/g...noise-t2917459.

Shots with one of the Z3, on SUPERIOR AUTO mode:






This is sickening!

Yeah I have it too, although it doesn't seems to be as bad as yours. Maybe it's a focus thing?

Having the same issue and posted on the Sony Mobile link you added, hopefully Sony can get it fixed.

Read a lot of reports of Z3C owners having the same problems.

Wow! I'd send this phone back, it should NOT look like that

Can someone confirm that they are NOT having this problem? I want to have some hope it is a software issue, not hardware.

Mine gets the pink areas but more mild but not centered like OP. Mine is definitely not that bad.

Call your nearest TMO store and tell them to reserve a phone on release day and exchange, I am going to do that as mine has severe light leakage from the right side of the frame.

I'm not. Certainly can't recreate it on testing.

color shading
It's called color shading..

you can see it in this review. Mine also has this issue indoor.

"On the downside, DxO says "color shading is visible in some outdoor pictures and low light conditions and strong flare is noticeable in sunny backlit outdoor scenes." "

Good thing this was brought up, I will test the new phone's camera at a TMO store before I exchange.
