Many camera features are software controlled. The software disables various camera features on low end models to force customers to purchase high end models where the software switch is turned on. I'm sure tech savvy users can just buy a low end Android camera and then root it to activate all of the features. For proprietary cameras, it is more difficult to hack it an activate those high end features.
