I'm new to Android and started with a Sony Xpera XZ1. The last few years I was happy with my Windows Mobile 10 Phones but now the time has come to switch to another platform, so here I am
My last device was a Lumia 930 and the Camera App over there had a few nice features I'm missing on my Sony. Would be great to see some of them in future updates:
Improvements for taking stills:
Maybe some of the above mentiont points have been requested in the past. But I think if you ask continuously for them some of the wishes come true :smileysmileywink:
Looking forward to read other users feedback.

Agree. Manual mode for videos and raw support is what we need (beside the fast update for the lens distortion..)
In the past Sony did some good things improving the camera app with little tweaks. It's good that you made 4k video availability through settings and not via an additional "app"

The increase of exposure time (1s is not enough!!) and a less destructive hi iso noise reduction would be appreciated too (maybe a tunable option? off-low-normal-high like sony alpha cameras??).

@patman89, so you say, you can take Raw photos with third party apps? Raw support is the dealbreaker for me. I won't mind if I have to use third party app.

I would like to have an app like FilmicPro on IPhone but for my Xperia phone. Every app that I've tried doesn't have the ability to fine tune the framerate, bitrate, and lock the exposure. If we could have those features it would be fantastic. Otherwise I will have to switch to Apple.
Because of the hardware fragmentation on Android, it's very likely that only Sony can do that. Thanks in advance for your help.
