Anonymous, 30 Mar 2018The new P20 and P20 Pro do slow motion at no limitIt would be interesting to say they have no limit, i wonder how huge the dram must be to have no limit. Maybe their meaning of no limit is stitching of the several 0.2 slow motions together.
YalokIy, 30 Mar 2018slow-mo 1080p on sony is a joke, it can capture half the time (0.09s) of what it can capture i... moreActually 720p for slow motion at 960fps is a bit of a joke too. I was impressed when Sony did it but the video quality wasn't fantastic, having something slow down is actually quite pretty to look at but when the resolution is so low, it's quite painful to enjoy it. This is the one reason why i hardly use it, not because it's not useful but because quality is rather bad.

BTW, there is nothing such is a thing called gimmick, yes, we can classify them into important to least important but nothing is gimmick and if we go that route, all the stuff we use are gimmicks for example, why you use your smartphone when you have a laptop or a desktop? why do you download and play games on your smartphone, when there are gaming platforms e.g. PlayStation, Xbox, PC games like ASUS predator etc, etc. Why do use your smartphone when the task of having phone is calling and SMS texts and yes you have to pay for them not the free you don't need free so why?
The Only, 30 Mar 2018How do you know it can capture only 0.09 sec?XZ2/ XZ2c have 2 options ...
You can record 960fps HD during 0.2s or 960fps Full HD during 0.1s. Then you playback 6s ( HD) or 3s ( Full HD).
Since the phone has same imx400 of XZ Premium, there is no hardware change. So the hardware handles same amount of data.
You increase resolution, time of recording gets shorter.

Love the Community, 30 Mar 2018It's a gimmick when the only one does it. When someone other than Sony has that gimmick, it's ... morebecause sony's implementation is always half baked?
sure it will become standard after the competitors fully implement it (or fully bake it).
this is how busines works dude, this is sad. but this is reality.

It is hardware limitation. Even with DRAM inside the sensor, it cant handle more data.
Unless a new sensor comes with more ram inside.

I didn't understand the idea.
Aren't this settings linked? I mean, when the shutter speed decreases, the ISO does the opposite!?
That's a strange behavior if it wasn't the case.
That would be great yes, and they could also add a focus peaking option to their phones, that can be useful at times.
Anonymous, 30 Mar 2018Edge screen is useless. Notch is useless. Clearly you never had one but edge is useful with more features

It requires double the amount of memory to record at 1080p, hence half the recording time
Ellio74, 30 Mar 2018What are those usfeul features the camera app is missing? What do you mean by "you can't even... moreChill friend, he is referring to older Sony smartphones. Since I have those flagships, I know what it is like. For the XPERIA XZ and older high-end flagships, they only could only change the ISO and shutter speed individually in Manual Mode. But starting from the XPERIA XZs and newer high-end flagships, they can change the ISO and shutter speed at the same time. Actually, one good idea is to release the new Manual Mode to the older generation high-end flagships, and probably also tune the Superior Auto meant for them, it would be great if they release that at least minimum for my XPERIA Z5 and XPERIA Z5 PREMIUM though...
