While I absolutely don't hate the camera (it produced some amazing shots for me), I will never say no to more features and having the option to choose whatever Camera app I prefer!

This is what I am talking about. With enough public pressure and tech press exposure we should be able to drive some action. As consumers, we actually have more power than one might expect. Hence why I asked, and yes it was serious... how much would we have to crowd fund to actually get some of the technicians time so that we can get the raw mode developed and implemented! If they do not respond to this request, then obviously it is a strategic move on their part to either (as some rumors suggest) maintain their market share of entry level dedicated digital cameras in the Japanese market, OR drive users towards their own controlled ecosystem of apps rather than open source efforts (which must make use of the full API)? Either way its discraceful practice, and I would never advocate those kinds of decisions; it's simply ruinous for ones brand image!!!
Just realised my original post was merged with a large thread about this issue, so now we have over 1000 comments and requests asking for full camera2api implemention and support for RAW capture. Come on Sony, sort it out.

Are you guys talking about another app than Google camera app? I have a Xperia Z2 with Android 6.0.1 and I was able to install the Google camera app and it work fine for me without problems. I've not used it enough to see major differences between the photos between the native Sony camera app and Google app thought.

This was the one reason why I didn't purchase the Sony XZ premium. A great phone missing a great feature.

I already wrote something about the missing features:

Or, at leas, let filmic pro or other app developer do the improvements:
-raw for photos
-manual control for video
-ae and af Lock in video
-more options selecting frame rates and video size.
It's a sony, oh lord!
