Hi there. Am I doing something wrong? I am trying to shoot at 23mp and change ISO also add Image stabilisation. Neither seem possible at 23mp?
Either I am doing something wrong or there is no point having the ability of shooting 23mp if you cannot use IS and change ISO.
If you can only use these setting at 8mp. this is a 8mp manual camera.

I feel pretty let down by Sony on this. It used to be a great camera. Great lens perfect for those who wanted a back up camera when not using their main one. Now I feel I have a phone.
Gutted. What happened? Why create a phone with 23mp and lock down all the things you would want to use it for to 8mp making the camera less than average.
It makes no sense?
Unless they have released it without finishing the programming for the camera to allow full manual at 23mp? That can be the only reason. Otherwise it is a 8mp camera. nothing else. Can you check if there is an update coming? I can see a lot of people feel incredibly let down by Sony who have bought for the same reason scrolling through the forums.

Sorry, I don't have access to that kind of information. Perhaps you can forward your suggestion to the Local support.

I have put the quesitons all over the 'sony' place including local support who had less of a clue than you. So high fives to your knowledge in comparison.
I think its disappointing that you cannot get a straight answer from anyone or anywhere. I can see there is an amazing camera hiding in there just waiting for people to let rip with full manual settings.

Bought a Z5P 3 months ago. Z5P's camera is so bad when compared to my friends LG G4....
16MP Pic of G4 has more details when zooming than the 20MP pic of Z5P
