My current mobile is a Sony Xperia T and I have found the 13 MP (10 MP at 16:9 aspect ratio) camera really handy. However when the light is less than perfect I find the images can be flat and noisy. Today I stumbled on a car rally in Beverley and without my regular cameras I put the Xperia into action.
The shot above is fairly typical and I’ve noticed for some time now that greens and reds particularly are very noisy. Ive found that I get best results by importing the photographs from the phone into Aperture 0n my Mac and then using the plug-in Neat Image to remove noise and to sharpen them up a little. The whole process takes minutes and the results are worthwhile as the following images show.
