HDR Video Recording on XZ1!

Dear Sony.

 

We have HDR screen on XZ1. We can reproduce HDR videos and make HDR Photos but...we CAN'T make HDR Videos. Why?

 

SnapDragon 835 and your mobile sensor on XZ1 fully support HDR video recording by hardware, so why don't enable it via software?

 

Moreover, why 960FPS Slow-motion its software limited to 3 sec in FullHD and 5 sec in HD? Why dont add a mode to do it all the time? If the phone run's hot for that (and it need at least like 20 sec for a thing like that) just stop the video recording, easy. 3 seconds of slow-motion are completely no-sense.

 

Do something about this.

Hi @Tux1;

 

Can not talk about video HDR recording but the Super Slow Motion recording time is in fact an hardware (sensor memory) limitation.

Nice to know. About HDR Video Recording, XZ2 have the same camera (sensor etc) of XZ1 (IMX400), so XZ1 can perfectly support HDR Video Recording.

Re: HDR Video Recording on XZ1!

Lol. I had a chat about this with a Sony Employee. He said "It's a function that it's implemented when the device is being created. That's why after can't be added".

 

It's like saying "I've already built the bathroom, now i can't add a towel". Sounds a lot like an excuse to buy a new model like XZ2 with same camera model to have HDR Videos, or a way to say "we already payied the developers, now they don't give a **bleep** about it".

 

Hope XDA Developers will do something about this, but knowing Sony proprietary software policy, it will never happen. Nice.

Re: HDR Video Recording on XZ1!

Hello,

 

Just out of curiosity, my old Xperia Z1 was capable of recording HDR videos @1080p. Why not make it at least HDR @1080p?

 

Thanks,

Jack
