hello all...

was just wondering if i can lock the focus while shooting in 4k mode ? Coz leaving it on auto in bad light causes blurred videos...

actually...ive noticed u cant lock focus on ALL video modes...!

Is that correct ? Or am i missing something?

I have been annoyed by this too! It's frustrating to have it constantly refocus itself.

Sony needs to rework the entire camera software as alot of stuff are missing and/or needs fixing (i have complete confidence the hardware is top notch...just the softwate quality doesnt quite match it).

Unfortunately for us, a good camera is hardware + software. For Z2 to become a great camera phone (from just a good one) we need:

- ISO preview (you can change it but you can't see the effect on the screen)
- all modes available on 15 and 20 MPx
- better software alltogether

right, so just to confirm and clarify

- there is no way to change how the focus works?
- it can't be set not to refocus every few seconds?
- is there any chance it will ever be fixed in an update, eg. lolipop? Could someone confirm if it isnt already fixed?

To be honest, the video recording is terrible, the image is sharp and blur on and off, making the video unwatcheable and makes the film-watchers question, whether I used my calculator to record a video. This is riduculous with this kind of phone ('best camera phone there is')
