Motion eye utilization.

The Motion eye camera is very capable. Can Sony use the stacked Memory for improving the HDR and background defocus?  The Google pixel without Ois takes incredible HDR photos. If Sony were to use the image stacked sensor, wouldn't it improve the HDR capabilities of the camera?  Or is it limited due to the API?

Re: Motion eye utilization.

For example. We could choose a HDR mode. When we press the shutter button, thanks to the Motion eye camera and clever software usage, the phone could quickly snap many photos and combine them for a better HDR. I'm not quite experienced with cameras, but the Google pixel doesn't have Optical Image Stabilisation and still takes amazing HDR photos. 

 

For Background defocus, I was thinking the phone could apply the same method of taking multiple pictures,while changing focus to have better blur / bokeh effect, although I'm not sure that's how bokeh works for single camera phones.

I know, about the HDR mode, but I was just suggesting an enchanced HDR/ HDR+. The reason behind is that many phone reviewers said that the Xperia HDR isn't that impressive compared to other phones.

But thanks anyway!  Have a nice day.

Re: Motion eye utilization.

I would like to apologize for wasting your time. I was reading comments on videos and some didn't like the HDR and I'm not quite experienced with HDR. Feel free to delete this thread. I'm so sorry again for wasting your time and thank you for the photography tips!  

Just a final question. Do you know of the XZP will recieve display Flash? It would be nice to be able to shoot better low light selfies. Thanks!

...but that's exactly how HDR mode works.
