Thank you

The Camera API 2 is not something that has to be supported by the ROM
(a Google search would show you it exists since Android 5.0 Lollipop),
but by the Camera stack implemented by the phone's manufacturer upon release.

The Sony 8960 devices' camera stack is the old closed-sources custom HAL1 camera stack
developed by Sony up to 2013-2014, based on the legacy SEMC (Sony Ericsson) HAL1 camera stack.

We spent massive amounts of time over the years & Android releases just to keep this HAL1 alive across the boards.
