Re: Camera2 API?

Sony,

 

Please add RAW support for Z3c camera software on Lolipop (and for the rest of Z series, for the matter) .

 

Also, light and noise processing algorithms from Sony should be reviewed.

Sensor hardware is fine, but the software clearly needs improvements.

 

Camera performance is an important feature of any high-end phone .

Re: Camera2 API?

I still remember when sony was advertising for xperia z1 and z1 compact, and article came out of a travelling professional photographer using the phone to take very high quality shots and he was recommending it all over. Now, dear sony please live up to the standard. I've used nokia, blackberry, samsung and none beat Sony Ericsson, that had became Sony. So yeah. please make it happened. pleaseeee

Re: Camera2 API?

Actually the biggest problem with sony's processing is white balance, often pics turn out looking shallow because the phone gets the white balance almost always wrong.

Re: Camera2 API?

Hi, I added code that uses camera2 api(120 FPS), but XPERIA Z2 answers that do not support Camera2 API.

Why Sony XPERIA Z2 doesn`t support Camera2 API?

 

Android 5.0.2(firmware 23.1.A.0.726)

Re: Camera2 API?

I want raw!!!!! Please give to us Sony.  It would make me love my Z3 compact even more.  You already lead with 4K video and bonus 1080p 60fps shooting and a brilliant 20 megapixel camera (allot other phones dont come close).  Give us raw and the phone would be complete.  I truly believe the old saying "The best camera is the one you have on you".  There would be a huge emergence of even greater pics coming from the z community.  Its a selling point which would equal more profits? Its a no brainer.

Re: Camera2 API?

I'd really, really love RAW support on my Z2, and manual exposure time setting. That's the only two things I miss in it, it is such a perfect phone.
