Hello Sony! I am very pleased by almost indestructible quality of your Android smartphones, but disappointed by some smartphone camera unreasonable limitations. I am saying about camera shutter speed limited to 1 second on xperia XZ. Just one question, WHY? Is it some marketing move which should force us buying full sized Sony photocameras? Well if this is so, this is not very wise move. People who will wish to dive into professtional photography world will never STOP on smartphone level even if Pro features like exposition will be unblocked. Smartphone is good start, but not full solution, you should know it. Blocking pro features on Xperia cameras interrupts people's path in pro-photography, making them do "jump of faith" to pro full sized camera, a lot of people (me too) will not do it and you lose customers. So if you got me I come here to ask you, Sony, for unblocking higher exposure times and other pro-features in drivers of xperia cameras for honor and justice. If you will not do it, we, independent developers will try do this ourselves and I think intervention of third-party patches to your firmwares will not be good thing for Xperia ecosystem. This is not blackmailing, this is soul yelling because some of us, Xperia users want to make for example night sky photos with stars, BUT WE CAN'T for some silly reasons.
