Sony Xperia 1 IV is photography oriented

Sony once again stresses that it has focused on the cameras of its flagships. It did it, however, quite differently from the competition. Earlier rumors about a sharp increase in camera resolution can already be turned into fairy tales.

The Xperia 1 IV received a well-known package, that is, 12 MP triple camera:

  • the main unit is based on a 1 / 1.7 ″ matrix and enriched with optical image stabilization,
  • Of course, there was an ultra-wide-angle lens,
  • and the real star is a periscope telephoto lens from (according to Sony) true optical zoom (varifocal).

This last element is the most interesting. The manufacturer has now bet on 3.5x and 5.2x optical zoom and smooth switching between intermediate values. The Xperia 1 IV is the first smartphone in the world equipped with such a solution. Each zoom value is meant to give exactly the same detail.

I like that all three cameras can record video at 120fps and 4K resolution, and also create footage up to 5x slow motion. You can also switch between them while recordingaccording to the manufacturer in a smooth way.

The Sony Xperia 1 IV also supports real-time tracking technology (video below), Eye AF, 20fps continuous shooting mode and AF/AE settings calculation 60 times per second. There were also ZEISS optics and a ZEISS T coating that reduces reflections.

The Japanese also continue to develop their photographic ecosystem. You can stream video from a compatible Alpha camera using your Xperia 1 IV as an external monitor. After adding a monitor for Sony vlogging, it becomes possible to use the camera on the back.

The service features hundreds of Sony Pictures Entertainment classics and the latest productions, behind-the-scenes Studio Access content, titles from the IMAX Enhanced Collection, and full DTS 21 sound.

In order for the Sony Xperia 1 IV to last as long as possible, a battery has been installed in it 5000mAh with fairly quick support 30W wired charging and wireless charging.
