Re: Camera2 API?

Raw please. Is like having top of the range Sony headphones in mono. It's like having a Sony bravia in black and white only. Come on Sony do it because that's what Sony does not because it's more work because it's how you work.

Re: Camera2 API?

We have 4 older Xperia phones in the family. We like the phones but now going to switch. LG probably. Lack of raw camera support is deal breaker for us.

 

I understand you don't want to cannibalize small cameras sales, but remember what Steve Jobs has said: "If you don't cannibalize yourself, someone else will"

 

..and this is just happening to you, SONY

Re: Camera2 API?

I would like to have manual focus as auto focus isn't always accurate especially at night... And i would like to have control over shutter for more creativity... And white balance to control saturation.

Re: Camera2 API?

Seriously, the ability to shoot RAW only enhances the user experience.  Sony is trying to make its mark in the photo world with all the innovations it is bringing, so why not have the flagship mobile phones capture RAW images?

Re: Camera2 API?

Well, i am not new in this Z5 camera anymore, and i am still impressed by the exelent sharpness and aberrations control of this lens and the sensitivity of the Exmor sensor. The question comes even heavier, will there be a full manual control of the camera with a lossless recording as the RAW format?

It will be more than appreciated. This device will be the standard of everyday photography.

Re: Camera2 API?

please consider adding full camera api2 support, at least on z5 series

 

if future phones will have OIS and non-plastic lenses if would be great too, but thats not software-related

I want the RAW support for my Sony Xperia Z5 Premium! It's a necessity.
