Will the XZ1 (compact) get the new XZ2 (compact) camera software/algorithms?

I have just read an article with a first look on / first review of the newer XZ2 (compact).

You can find it here (german language).

 

http://www.areamobile.de/handys/7328-sony-xperia-xz2/testbericht/sony-xperia-xz2-compact-im-ersten-t...

 

The interesting part is this one:

Auch ist der verwendete 19-Megapixel-Bildsensor derselbe, wie er schon in den Xperia-XZ1-Modellen vorzufinden ist. Durch die überarbeitete Bildverarbeitungssoftware soll die neue Motion-Eye-Kamera allerdings trotzdem bessere und rauschärmere Fotos machen.

 

Fast translation:

Also the used 19-megapixel-image-sensor is the same on already found in the xperia xz1 models. Because of a revised image processing software the motion-eye-camera nevertheless should make better and lower noise pictures.

 

The question is:

Will Sony make the software also available for the XZ1 series (and perhaps XZ Premium)?

I really hope so. More than anything I would like them to make available 1080p video at 960fps for the XZ1 family.

New Camera Features From XZ2 Series

May I know is that possible for XZ1 series get updated with the latest camera features from XZ2 series, since they are using the same 19mp sensor but with different SD835/845. _Thanks

Re: New Camera Features From XZ2 Series

Unlikely.

 


However, through a collaboration with Qualcomm on the Snapdragon 845 ISP and the software to go with it, the XZ2 and XZ2 Compact offer a new generation BIONZ image processing algorithm/architecture.

Re: New Camera Features From XZ2 Series

I like all the new features from XZ2 series, except the design. Hope that sony can show some love to XZ1 series by upgrading the camera software.

Re: New Camera Features From XZ2 Series

Maybe they can bring the full hd super slowmotion, because it just ups the resolution and halfs the time. But I dont think they will.

Re: New Camera Features From XZ2 Series

I hope they will, I'll be more than satisfied with full hd slow motion. They did it with 3D creator and XZ Premium, let's wait and see.

I don't mind about the new features, but I really want the new image processing. I saw pictures taken from the XZ2, for the first time Sony proves they can do as good as its competitors!

Re: Will the XZ1 (compact) get the new XZ2 (compact) camera software/algorithms?

Despite the new Image processor, usually what can be achivied by hardware processing can be emulated by software too (slower), therefore i think it's technically possible (if that "slower" is not "unuseably slow"). But there are strong commercial resons for not implementing it on an older model.
