Camera iconBad news for those hoping that Sony Mobile would add manual camera settings to the latest Android 5.1.1 Lollipop firmware release that has started to hit the Xperia Z3 series today. A quick check on the “Manual Camera Compatibility” app shows that, as before, no manual camera settings (manual focus, WB, ISO, shutter speed, RAW) are supported.

We expect this will be the case for all other 2013/14 Sony Xperia models being updated to Android 5.1 over the coming months. The latest flagship, the Sony Xperia Z3+ does support manual settings through the Android Lollipop Camera2 API, albeit with the exception of RAW support.
