In android 9 pie firmware, u see the new Sony camera app and by default it's the superior or intelligent mode when u open the camera app. U can switch to manual for more accurate capture. 

 

If u still want the old camera app , only way is to go back to Oreo firmware but u will miss the latest security patch coming with pie rom.

Re: Camera modes

Hi @Theresa13, welcome to our forum!

As @mahesh911 wrote, if you do not select a mode by tapping on "Mode" and tapping on a mode from the list, for example Manual, the default mode will be the Superior auto mode, so it has not been removed, it's just not displayed the same way as in Android 8.0!

I hope that helps! Slightly smiling Face
