Re: Camera2 API?

Sony, please add RAW format in the camera app and more options like in Lumia app. Check out here what a phone can do if it has support for raw format:

Another topic with people asking for Raw feature http://forum.xda-developers.com/z3-compact/general/raw-support-lollipop-sonys-nailed-coffin-t3056309

Personaly I think it is a big plus to have.
If the camera doesn't produce good results out of the box, with raw you can edit it without loosing quality.
I had the HTC One M7, and that was one of the tricks to get better images. I am thinking about a Z3C, but camera is holding me to buy it, if sony updates it, make it better and with raw support it will be a winner!

Re: Camera2 API?

Raw option will be the main difference between standard smartphones and high end smartphones, so it should be commercially crazy for Sony to ignore it!

Re: Camera2 API?

YES PLEASE (Z3C here).

@Rickard, you call it a "renowned camera experience", and theoretically it should be with such an excellent sensor. However, Sony really has lackluster software image-processing in the Z series.

 

Samsung and Apple use worse hardware yet their devices still churn out better pictures. Come on Sony, your phone camera game should be ace considering you produce great products in other photography markets.

 

If you can't fix the auto image processing, please give us the option to do it ourselves = camera2 api.
