Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Camera Not Available Error Msg
Jul 19, 2010
Does anyone else get this error message from time to time? Its very annoying and happens at the worst time (ie when a really super photo shot happens).I either have to reboot my phone before it will comes right or alternatively I have to keep trying to reload the camera and sometimes on about the 4th or 5th attempt it comes right.Can this be rectified? Is it a setting i have wrong? This is such an amazing phone, but man oh man, does it have some bugs that need to be worked out
I dunno, After using the SE Satio and C905, those cameras are MUCH better than this one, Considering those were so great I was positive this one was going to be excellent! Its definitely not bad, but for an 8mp camera its not that great, Its like the W995, it has an 8mp camera on it and its WAY under par, does NOT take good pictures. Anyway Im not really disappointed or anything I just found it a bit under-par, Im willing to bet that the 5mp camera on the Galaxy S will be better than this one, The BEST cameras on cell phones Ive ever used are the Omnia HD and the Satio.
Also Something Ive noticed about all the android phones Ive used, the way they take pictures is.....awkward. Its hard to explain but when I used the satio and C905, they way they took pictures it felt like a real camera, Ive used the Hero, N1, and now X10 and they way they shoot the pics it just doesn't feel the same, again hard to explain without you using so....
I rooted my phone, and deleted the "Camera 1.0" app, thinking that "Camera 1.6" is the latest version of the application. When I deleted "Camera 1.0", video cam functionality ceased (even with third party apps) and basic UI (ie. the side camera button doesn't work anymore) is not fully functional.
Is there a Camera App that can be retrieved anywhere so I may re-install it? Otherwise, Is there anything that can be done to restore everything back to normal? (fyi, I already tried reseting the phone to no success).
I am thinking of getting this phone or the Nexus1, but neither seem to have a front facing camera, is that true? Ive seen people online saying the x10 has a FFcamera, but I had a look at the pdf manual of the phone, and there was no mention of a second camera. That would be a massive negative for me seeing Fring has already brought video calls to Symbian phones.
Eight Issue Camera responsiveness, is there a way to fix this app or will it be glitch until the update and/or even after the update? Is it just my phone or every time I attempt to take a picture it takes quite sometime after I take the picture the actual moment the picture is captured? not to mention the lag between pictures, the lack of burst mode, and another thing that is quite annoying why does the image in the camera gets so DARK when you press the camera button to focus? the image on the screen should represent the actual photo your capturing not some dark version of it one or two seconds after you click/touch the screen to capture the picture.
I've become a bit confused about the X10's camera. When I first bought mine, I could have sworn the camera had a "multi-shot" setting, but I can no longer find it. Google results show up a couple of old reviews online which claim the X10 has multi shot capabilities, but I can find nothing on any spec sheets.
I'm really struggling with the camera on the x10. I was expecting going from tocca ultra to SE, (both 8.1) to be quite similar in quality, but this ain't the case. Picture is half the size of the screen and pics during night are awful!! Cant even seem to find the flash.
This looks to be one of the best android phones out there. Although I prefer physical keyboards, I'm willing to give it up if the published specs for this device are accurate If it is in fact running Android 2.0, and it uses T-Mobile's 3G bands, I'm all over this baby the day it comes out.I would prefer stock Android to make it easier to upgrade in the future but I am willing to give it up for the Snapdragon processor and 8MP camera.
Can somebody help me about my x10 mini camera. The phone's camera doesn't have zoom function. I tried press on the side but it only tune the sound it doesn't zoom. I tried touch the screen but it didn't work.
Does anyone know where to find details specifications on the camera please? I'm a photographer looking to make more use of the Xperia's camera and am trying to get a better hold on its potential as compared to a typical SLR setup to help me understand its likely limitations and capabilities. issues to cover include: SO, F stop, "shutter" speed, Focal length.
I was wondering if people with the Xperia X10 that also own other high end phones, could take a photo in different settings (different lighting etc) of the same photo with both phones. I was just wondering how good the camera really is compared to other high-end phones. I sold my other phones so I cannot do it, but I would be excited to see some results
I have now had my X10 for a week and am quite happy with it in the main. The only problem i seem to have, is it sometimes reboots when i try to use the camera. It first did it before i had any marketplace apps on, so i don't think its due to something i installed. It happens when i try to open the camera, and it has also happened when the shopsavvy app tried to start the camera.
i was having the same issue when i was using this phone on 1.6. but only this one none of the others had this problem. when i switch to video camera mode its fine, when i hit record it starts to record and the little light comes on aswell. in the menu the option is clicked off. whys it doing this?
I am having a problem with a software update through a PC, using the PC Companion. It says that I have an installation error when it goes into step 3 and updating my phone. I posted two pictures at the bottom about the errors.
I recently went through a process recommended by Sony Support to download latest software update to my X10 (depite the fact that the inbuilt update process repeatedly informed me I had the latest software.) Now when i use the inbuilt procedure od SETTINGS/About Phone/Software update/ Update Now (with the WiFi & mobile networks setting selected) my X10 helpfully tells me "your phone will now search to see if any new sofware is available". After a few seconds it then informs me "Could not update - network error".
Does anyone out there know if there is a way we can get a flash down loaded to ur handset for the camera as the photos i take are coming out really dark. shame really because when i take them outside in the daylight, the quality is Very good. if anyone knows i'd sure appreciate a reply.
Why is the camera on the X10 being advertised as so good? It's clumsy, slow and awkward to use. No flash and pictures can be very difficult to take with blurring happening more times than not. One of the main reasons I choose the X10 over other devices was the promise of a brilliant camera. Sony Ericsson, can you give us any information on future updates to the camera, eg wil we ever get the flash that you promised in a 'future update' and will you ever increase the screen colours? HD video recording is a great start (I'm yet to try it out as the update isn't available to me yet), but please bring the camera up to the quality I've experienced with previous SE devices
