sony europe, 29 Apr 2020 The same sony, just marketing, year after year sony put a pathetic camera in all sony phones,... morethankyou for make me laugh.
i have note 9, and even xz2 easy to beat note 9. ofcourse if you know how to use camera properly. if you just rely auto then yeah...you only get minimum result
Shui8, 30 Apr 2020Hands down looks like its the most advance manual control for a smartphone camera can get. But... moreGood quality jpg you can edit in software and make very good results. Even take info from underexposed regions of photo.
RAW is ok but I shot hi-end mirrorless and always shot on jpg.
Hands down looks like its the most advance manual control for a smartphone camera can get. But does it support RAW? No mention anywhere. Huge letdown if it dont.
Judging by the low light samples....hurmm i dont know, still bad at highlights control...overblown here & there....will wait for real review then.

sony europe, 29 Apr 2020 The same sony, just marketing, year after year sony put a pathetic camera in all sony phones,... moreWe don't know how Xperia 1 II will fare in reviews and by someone hand impression, pal. I admitted and aware that past Xperia phones prior to Xperia 1 doesn't have good post-processing photos in Auto (in Manual tho, it's their biggest strength). But since Xperia 1, they images are gradually improving and giving way better result. Xperia 1 II will give way much better result than X 1 due much larger sensor, bigger pixel size (1.80 um vs 1.40 um on X 1), better post processing, Alpha-assistant and co-development are more pronounce this time. Therefore, the output are much appreciated.
Please wait for the full review to come before prejudice and making early conclusion the X 1 II at all. It never good to prejudice something that never been touch....

Anonymous, 30 Apr 2020I am not seeing any "Alpha-inspired features" from the description given. The camera system on... morePal, are 20fps AF/AE, Animal & Human Eye AF, 60fps calculation, Photo Pro based Alpha UI and behavior, RAW/DNG formating based post-processing, Bionz X (for Mobile in this case), and others features there aren't Sony Alpha-inspired features? Then what are they and their presence in Xperia 1 II? Kimio Maki's effort to bring Alpha features on Xperia would be nothing all the time if you said that...
Senseurheart Kimochi, 30 Apr 2020The 16mm, 24mm and 70mm camera looks great to provide a well field covering. I'm just wondering, are you the same person as anonymous who talked about Sony fans being off-putting? You guys share exactly the same ID (vV5).

"For moving subject, each frame will be slightly different. Then you cant overlap them"
I'm sorry to say this, but you really sound like you'd been living under a rock since 2013. Apple, Huawei, and most notably Google, already figured out the way to perform image stacking while minimising the ghosting artifacts and they are continuously making a further improvement in the algorithms.
How could it offer the Aperture priority mode if it has no diaphragm? Maybe you confused the "Auto" A with the "Aperture" A
Anonymous, 29 Apr 2020And on good Sony tradition it will have a small battery and big price tag. And a crappy UI. An... more4000 mAh is small? What the heck, dude? You never see how Sony managed to squeezed Xperia 5 battery ER on 96hr despite 3140mAh and outlast S10e by 13hr (83hr) despite similar screen resolution and battery capacity? Its optimization playing the role here. We haven't see the real performance of X 1 II, at least until next month. And their UI is vanilla Android with few Xperia icing on top, just like OnePlus with OxygenOS (very stock, but with extra features). There's little chance their UI can be that bad, unless they managed to slip away, which's never so far.
Anonymous, 29 Apr 2020I know DRO just lift the shadows at expense of more noise.
But stacking a.k.a HDR+ will brig... moreHDR processing takes place on RAW level. Oversaturated colours or brightened up shadows are to do with the post processing and the actual image stacking is completely irrelevant here, go edit some RAW images from Lightroom HDR or GCam to see what I mean. Nothing looks unnatural on those images, apart from possible ghosting artifacts (though they are controlled extremely well on those camera apps). Do you see Pixel or Xiaomi producing over-the-top colours like you explain? Nope.
"it is supposed to be dark, not bright"
But not completely CRUSHED like Pixel 3, and neither highlights should be completely blown out like on Xperia 1. If it renders dark yellowish shadows black and a blue sky white then that's not a good phone camera. End of story.
SLSAHXOHVOMVN, 30 Apr 2020No excuse for not giving 120hz @1080p or QHD in Settings. Well, the situation of S865 forcing the 4K screen to push 90/120Hz like QHD@144 Hz is like forcing putting 8.0L W16 engine of Bugatti Chiron on Lotus Exige S, unless extreme adaption is made, which's for now, it's not worth it. I think Qualcomm should noted this for Snapdragon 875 to enable 4K@90Hz...

Anonymous, 30 Apr 2020Another Sony post, another drama to watch. It is a good phone but the vibe of the Sony fans on... moreI can't help but wonder why a portion of Sony fans react in such an aggressive manner to what other companies do and attack them ferociously. There are Apple/Samsung/Huawei/OnePlus/Xiaomi fanboys who show similar attitudes, yes, but those from Sony and Nokia are generally more extreme.
Well what can I say.. Looking at the cropped portion of low light photos from both Xperia 1 and Mk. II, I'm really impressed by the improvement they managed to make in its processing. Finally Sony stopped applying that horrendous oversharpening and started to head to the right direction. It's also great to see that they now use AI and ToF sensor to determine in which part of the frame the subject exists to land an accurate focus on it, other companies should take notes from Sony.
It's kind of weird that the main sensor only has 247 focal plane PDAF points despite boasting about having Dual Pixel AF though. Wouldn't every single pixel have to be split PDAF pixels in that case? And why separate camera app for manual settings when you could just chuck everything into the manual mode on the regular camera app, just like what LG does? I still have some concerns about consistency in its HDR processing as well, but I'll hold off from making any conclusion regarding this matter until Anandtech does a thorough review on it.
