Re: Camera blure and noise issue (no iso at 20 and 23 mp)

Hi there. Am I doing something wrong? I am trying to shoot at 23mp and change ISO also add Image stabilisation. Neither seem possible at 23mp? 

Either I am doing something wrong or there is no point having the ability of shooting 23mp if you cannot use IS and change ISO. 

If you can only use these setting at 8mp. this is a 8mp manual camera.

@Dexuality ISO cannot be changed at 20 or 23 MP. You can only enable/disable HDR.

Re: Camera blure and noise issue (no iso at 20 and 23 mp)

I feel pretty let down by Sony on this. It used to be a great camera. Great lens perfect for those who wanted a back up camera when not using their main one. Now I feel I have a phone. 

 

Gutted. What happened? Why create a phone with 23mp and lock down all the things you would want to use it for to 8mp making the camera less than average. 

 

 

It makes no sense? 

 

Unless they have released it without finishing the programming for the camera to allow full manual at 23mp? That can be the only reason. Otherwise it is a 8mp camera. nothing else. Can you check if there is an update coming? I can see a lot of people feel incredibly let down by Sony who have bought for the same reason scrolling through the forums.

Sorry, I don't have access to that kind of information. Perhaps you can forward your suggestion to the Local support.

Hi Alex

 

I have put the quesitons all over the 'sony' place including local support who had less of a clue than you. So high fives to your knowledge in comparison. Winking Face 

I think its disappointing that you cannot get a straight answer from anyone or anywhere. I can see there is an amazing camera hiding in there just waiting for people to let rip with full manual settings.

I am beginning to think it isn't a 23mp camera at all. It is clever HD SOFTWARE after the shot.is taken. Why else would the camera be unable to shoot in manual anything above 8mp? The con is on. And when I asked about.this. not one person at Sony would give me a straight answer...

Bought a Z5P 3 months ago. Z5P's camera is so bad when compared to my friends LG G4....

16MP Pic of G4 has more details when zooming than the 20MP pic of Z5P

From Z all the way to use Z5, there are many ideas, first-class hardware three flow optimization. Manual mode is not full - there is no shutter adjustment without RAW resin lenses, Samsung /LG are doing better than Sony, not to say that China's mobile phone manufacturers and ihone, consumers are not a fool. Such products who are willing to pay? Without a good experience to spend more money, Sony brand has been not to attract consumers - the worse the worse.
