If you’ve read our review of the Sony Xperia Z1, you’ll notice that it includes neat camera modes to go along with its 20.7 megapixel camera. However, those features are exclusive to the current flagship. Well, until now.
XDA Recognized Developer, krabappel2548, was able to port the Z1′s camera software to other members of the Z family: the Xperia Z, Xperia ZR, Xperia ZL, and the Xperia Z Ultra.
Here are the camera modes that the developer was able to port:
* Info Eye
* Augmented Reality effects
* Timeshift mode (currently not working on the Z Ultra)
* Manual Mode
* Social Cast mode
* Automatic mode
Notably, the features listed above don’t include Picture Effect and Sweep Panorama.
Before you decide to try this, do note that this involves rooting your device and flashing of software which can be fatal to your smartphone if not done correctly. Please proceed with caution.
