Re: Camera2 API?

Just look at this comparisson between G4 & Z3 when it comes to the camera - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vX5p-gn7Wts. The LG G4 beats Sony when it comes down to actual quality of the photos!!!! Shame on you Sony, give us full access to the camera 2api manual mode...

Sony team,

 

Hope you can decide on this RAW format as soon as possible before we switch to other brands (e.g. LG's G4, Samsung's S6 after its 5.1 release) that can give us what we wanted.

 

Best,

Re: Camera2 API?

Hello fellow owners of soonys device.

 

You can see that company made us to become beggars. I don't see 41 pages of happy people i see beggars. We need to put a lot of effort to get what company has promised on their commercials - a best camera.. bla bla.. etc. Hope sony will understad their misatke as htc and nokia weren't able to and now they are struggling if they will survive in the market. I promise that i'll sell my z3c even if i'll lose my money then i'll buy some other phone after that i'll tell to everyone who will tell me that is willing to buy xperia to not do that and encouraging you to do the same if we won't get what we were promised. It is your call soony to hear us (sony should exceed our desires).

Re: Camera2 API?

 If there is anything I want on my Z3 compact, it is more manual control. Specifically, manual focus and shutter speed. Of course, the way to get this on Android is the Camera2 API. My humble plea to you, almighty Sony is that you may enable the camera2 API.

Re: Camera2 API?

I think what is most needed are full manual controls. Focus and mainly Exposure. RAW support would be a cherry on the top.

Here you go...Sony has listened and did it. Like LG G4, except for RAW. And like every other OEMs, no Cam2 apk for older models.

Re: Camera2 API?

Hello Rickard,

 

I am a photographer that uses SONY equipment exclusively. I have a DSLR-A900 and a DSLR-RX100 as my primary cameras now. I bought the XPERIA for its SONY camera and video engine heritage (cell phones are all the same otherwise). I would love to gain full access to the XPERIA's capability via full RAW support.

 

Please tell us how we (the people in this forum) can voice our request to SONY to implement this sooner than later?

 

SONY's greatest fan,

Jose Cordova.

RAW Images.

Does sony xperia z3 support the RAW shooting mode? I just heard about raw today and they say it comes with the android 5.0 lolipop.  

 

P.S is it some lie i read about the raw coming with lolipop?  Because i my self think that the quality like JPEG or raw should be depending on the camera not android.
