Re: Camera2 API?

Yes YES YES!

 

Please sony give us RAW support, the camera on the z2 is amazing, if I could shoot in RAW that would be the icing on the cake. As you can tell lots of people are asking for this feature, and for myself I need to carry camera's around with me on a daily basis - but sometimes all I have is my phone. With RAW support, come the time for photo editing I won't be dissapointed with the limited post-production from files being saved in JPEG.

 

Sony if you do this, it will be great for your image, as you have asked, we have answered, now its time for you to do your part. The fact that a large scale manufacturer is asking for feedback is an amazing thing, acting on the feedback will only serve to improve your company image.

 

With RAW and the ability for 3rd party apps to use custom ISO setting, that would make your devices unparalleled.

 

Please take action, I'll be looking forward to it.

Re: Camera2 API?

Camera is one of the key reasons to get a Xperia, I've got two friends who got the z2 after I bought it just for the camera.

Raw means lossless, no jpeg artifacts and is one step to make the camera even better.

If possible I want it.
Knowing that Sony added it to current lineup makes raw one feature that makes me want to buy more Xperia devices since it shows commitment to perfection which is what Sony is all about for me.

Re: Camera2 API?

I've just bought an xperia z3 compact. Bought for the battery the size but also for the camera. I thought Sony was always delivering high quality service in terms of audio and photography. But now we'll all agree that you are one of the last brand (supposed to have one of the best camera) that don't feature the camera 2 api.

Could you please tell us when will you integrate it to our products ? And if not at least give us explanations about it. This feature enables so much fonctionalities, xperia users would take amazing shots.

Please reconsider it

Re: Camera2 API?

I want to say one thing. A do not consider my xperia z2 as camera until it has RAW support. I have Nikon's DSLR and One cameras and I think that it's not me, but Sony needs that I have RAW ability in xperia. Very simple, if Sony plans to continue produce smartphones. If not - Sony shouldn't bother itself.

Re: Camera2 API?

Sony should implement "Full mode (optional capability for RAW capture)". 

Come on, Z1,Z2,Z3 etc have 20.7 mp camera... but no camera2 api? Totally waste of that huge camera.. Face with rolling Eyes

Re: Camera2 API?

Yes we all want better camera functionality, i got a Z2 (my first Sony android device btw) because it has one of the best cameras around.

Sony makes sensors for a lot of phones that work better than on their own xperia phones lol Slightly smiling Face

 

So please add support for camera2 api and raw mode in your phones. Thanks

Re: Camera2 API?

Please add FULL Camera2 api support!  Would really go nice with my Z3C.

Please Sony, prove you are serious about photography on your phones.  Right now, other phones using Sony sensors are putting Sony phones to shame.  I'm embarassed by the output of my Z3C compared to other flagship phones.

Re: Camera2 API?

Raw or not, I hope they work on improving the camera so that it stands up with newer devices like the SGS6 and iP6. That means improving the various algorythms for superior auto mode, low light processing, post processing and everything else. In short I don't care about Raw, I'd like to see the camera performance improved. The S6 takes amazing photos in auto mode with no raw support.
