Re: Camera2 API?

"As always, we're monitoring our customer expectations and regarding supporting taking pictures in RAW format, we will consider this for the future if there is a popular demand."

 

This is why Sony keeps falling behind.

 

You shouldn't be waiting for people to demand things from you, you should be striving to be ahead of consumer expectations. Sony should have given RAW to people even before people knew they wanted RAW.

 

To be ahead in the mobile imaging you can't wait for everyone else to do everything first. Come on, Sony. It's pass time to step up the game already!

Re: Camera2 API?

Beside RAW capture, which is the most important tome , here are thing that you should improve

 

to do list

 

-Let 20 MP be able to use the modes !! and HDR , too

-zero shutter lag (Samsung've done it since S3, now all others manufacturer had it. what are you doing SONY ?)

-Let iso for 20 MP can be choose more than 800 (in 8 mp the higest opyion is 3200, so why not ?)

-Renew that incredibly **bleep** PANORAMA mode !!!!! 

-Can Creative Effect photo save at higher res ? at least 8mp ? not this currently Full HD res. Oh' And taking photo Between video recording should be more res, too.

-Drop down the auto exposure for 1/2 stop at least. Haven't you guys never notive that the exposure always over for 1/2-1 stop. this maybe good for lowlight, but absolutely not in daylight

 

these are things that you should've done for a long time, not to mentions about manual speed shutter and etc.

 

Seriously, you should focus more on software. And I do know that Z1 can use 60fps/4k/120fps mode. but you just don't want to put it in old device. that's ashamed.

 

PS. PUT OIS IN THE NEXT DEVICE ALREADY !!!! ( steadyshot in video is good, but it could be better, and it would amazingly help in taking lowlight)
