I do like the Z1 a lot, including the camera but in manual mode I find it a bit cumbersome to go into the menu to set ISO values and all so I was looking for custom camera apps which allow me to access this more directly, only to find out they don't work (properly) on the Z1.

So far I tried:

Lenovo Super Camera: Allows you to set the iso, but simply ignores the value set
Camera FV-5: Same as above
Focal: Can't find an option to set ISO
ProCapture: No manual ISO control (Will be in a next release, but device miight not be supported)
Pudding Camera; No manual ISO control
Camera360: "Your device does not support this" message
Camera ZoomFX: No manual ISO control

So I'm afraid it will be impossible for third party apps to control the ISO values. Which wouldn't be too bad if I could access the setting more directly in the native camera app.

Anyone with tips or tricks for this?

I'd like too, but Sony locks APIs to set ISO without the stock app
It's incredible but true
