Sony says its latest smartphone includes a 85-125mm lens which it says offers the world’s first true optical zoom lens as well as 120fps high-speed readout image sensor for all three lenses.
The Xperia 1 IV includes 4K 120 frames per second (fps) slow-motion video recording on all lenses, as well as Videography Pro mode and External Monitor features with live streaming.
The phone features three lenses; a 16mm ultra-wide lens, 24mm wide lens, and a new unique true optical telephoto zoom 85–125mm lens.
All three have a 12MP Exmor RS for mobile image sensor with a readout speed of up to 120fps. The phone also combines depth information, using the 3D iToF sensor, and AI (artificial intelligence) based subject detection for precise and accurate AF and tracking in low light, said Sony.
The Videography Pro feature enables users to easily adjust settings such as focus, exposure, and white balance – even while recording.
Users can capture and playback fast-moving scenes and slow-motion video at up to 5x due to the device’s ability to record in 4K HDR 120fps video on all its lenses.
The Xperia 1 IV also features multi-frame shooting for video recording, which Sony says allows videos to be recorded with wider dynamic range without losing resolution.
