Let’s Talk Sensors
You’ve heard the headlines - This is the world’s first smartphone with a 1.0-type image sensor and phase detection autofocus. A sign of the times, the Sony Xperia PRO-I is designed for those who want to take their smartphone photography and videography to the next level. It’s fitted with a large and powerful 1.0 Exmor RS CMOS image sensor that’s based on Sony’s RX100 VII image sensor. This results in more control than any other smartphone camera yet, offering less noise for photos in low-light conditions, a high dynamic range, and beautiful natural bokeh.
The sensor is coupled with a triple-lens and 3D iToF sensor array, and a dual aperture of F2.0-4.0 that further expands your creative scope. This allows you to play with depth of field and experiment with the way you portray your subject with details and textures captured by all three 16mm Ultra-Wide, 24mm Wide, and 50mm Standard lenses rival that of some compact system cameras. In addition to these features, the smartphone also can capture up to 20fps AF/AE, up to 60 times per second continuous AF/AE and feature Sony’s world-renowned Real-time Eye AF(Human, Animal) and Real-time Tracking. Finally, when shooting in RAW format, the Xperia PRO-I supports 12bit which in turn captures smooth and rich tonal gradation of the colour without banding.
Built for Video
So, what else is this phone capable of? Its arsenal of technology sets it aside from any other smartphone and it’s ready to impress with the likes of 4K 120p video capture; something that is only recently become possible in Pro-cameras. The sensor allows you to capture exceptional video quality whilst Sony’s intelligent UI helps creative vision, offering you the means to capture your footage as you envision it.
This phone is designed for content creators, from its exceptional image quality standards to its array of creative apps that are ideal for content creators giving them quick access to features.
There’s Videography Pro and Photography Pro that offer creative settings, including shutter speed, ISO, and white balance, all of which allow you to create content just as you would on a pro-camera, but on your smartphone.
Something that enhances both photo and video performance alongside the sensor and the initiative menu layout is autofocus. Sony is well known for the advanced AF system they use in their pro-mirrorless cameras e.g. the Sony A1. The Sony Xperia PRO-I AF system has 315 (21x15) phase-detection AF points that cover 90% of the frame. It uses Sony’s incredible eye-detection and real-time tracking that locks on and provides a sharp focus on even moving subjects.
The Sony Xperia PRO-I is fitted with a beautifully clear and large 6.5" 21:9 wide 4K HDR OLED (3840x1644) display. This is unheard of in the smartphone world. Moreover, this display has a 120Hz high refresh rate and 240Hz motion blur reduction, both of which improves performance for super-smooth scrolling and operation. And, as an added benefit, you are less likely to experience headaches or eye strain after longer sessions.
