Sony XPERIA Z3 and Z3 Compact still plagued by ‘pink blotch’ camera issue

A few months back, Sony XPERIA Z3 and Sony XPERIA Z3 Compact owners complained of “pink blotches” that emerged on captured images using the smartphones’ rear-facing camera. It seems that the problem persists, as owners are still complaining about the eyesore plaguing their photographs.


The photo you see above was sent to PhoneArena by one of the site’s “loyal readers.” It reports, “According to our reader, he is on his second Xperia Z3, which is having the same issue as his original model. He notes that the pink spots don’t seem to appear when pictures are taken outdoors, and do show up “when photographing fairly uniform blocks of color.” Sony, he says, is blaming issues that the sensor on the camera has with color temperature, along with the diameter of the lens.”

According to some of the smartphones’ owners, Sony is telling them to “adjust the white balance on the camera settings.” This is said to take care of the problem. Although this resolves the pink blotch issue, it results in inaccurate colour reproduction, which isn’t a good thing either. A factory reset will not solve the problem.
