Essentially not using the point of the kit, which is the ability to use filters.
Then why does the photos look like garbage compared to other photos taken by the 13 Ultra?
Did you shoot manual, or?
vel-fol, 03 Oct 2023the irony of someone who hates sony yet having xperia on his favorite devices lol..No irony, but also no fanboyism only liking one brand or thinking that all models from one brand are awful. There is not need to be so one-dimensional.

They just make phones for hobbyist and for fun. They're like the apple of android but without the consumer popularity and others.. Just the pricing of their phone lol. But Sony Xperia are really good for minimalist and photographers though not gonna lie.

Now that a fanboy like you doesn't see it, it's another thing, because the annual sales of Sony phones, not even in its country Japan, are relevant, in fact, it doesn't even appear in the best-seller rankings.
[deleted post]bro when you mention dying-brand, you better be more specific
Sony as whole company is far from dead, prosumer camera, cam-sensor, tv, playstation etc. lol
yeah i know u mean Sony "Xperia"
anyway the marketshare is small, but there is fans/groups that help the brand thriving, albeit it still limited in sales volume
but i am guessing sony will keeping xperia division longer than you might expect
in japan, where iphone is common choice for smartphone, but xperia usually recommended/choice for android phones beside obviously pixel phones
Those sample photos look like trash on closer inspection, details are all smudgy like an oil painting. As usual good hardware paired with bad processing.
I agree with Marco, although showcased, even if it wasn't used, it would've been cool to see what the lens and ND filter in action on some reflective buildings/car mirrors, etc. Just something that we can see that the lenses are working and worth it. Nonetheless, thank for covering the accessories!
Seems Nokia Lumia 1020

It would be been better, in my opinion, if the benefit of the kit with regards to the possibility of filters was showcased by showing comparison shots, with and without (possibly with slider function), and not to mention actually taking photos where the benefit of a CPL filter is more evident.
Keep in mind, most users here are not photographers nor hobby photographers with a background from DSLR or mirrorless.
Hence the comment I replied to, and others, writing as they do.
albay, 02 Oct 2023bad photosgo check your Eyes.These Photos are awesome.
If I would go for advanced level of mobile photography, I would choose sony xperia 1 V or pro-2.
C0RROSI0N, 02 Oct 2023Lol its priced way better than the iphones And with terrible support... I wouldn't pay more than 500 dollars for it or for any Xiaomi, which has a good HW, yes, but the iPhone 15 pro max already has everything that excels in Android
I think they went with Leica vibrant on these photos, but should have went with leica authentic. They always say general people will choose Leica vibrant over authentic because it is more pleasing, but general people who buy this phone would probably never buy this photography kit. So it would have made sense to use authentic at least for posting here.
Also the water still have reflections, should have removed it using CPL.

The Photography Kit doesn't include a polarizer nor any other filter.
Lumia 1020 everyone :D
