Others can get similar experience by paying more for an app, which adds extra cost to their already much more expensive devices, which then could've just been used to purchase proper filmmaking equipments like gimball, tripod, rigs, and ND filters.
This is still in its second generation, but at least it works very well for the most part of its purpose, instead of something like 120Hz only in 1080p or 8K with severely cropped FoV and with no proper stabilization, as well as bad autofocusing system.
Anyone who's saying that they can just buy a proper filmmaking camcorder aren't getting the idea that this phone is basically taking more than 70% of the capabilities of those products into one smaller package at half the price. Sure, you can get much better video quality with a RED cameras, but this phone can shoot fast-moving subjects with no motion blur and accurate focus, which the RED cameras can't, and vice versa with an A9II.
This is basically every Sony's best in one package, and it's just additional bonus that it could entirely replicate the functionality of those products.
Absolute waste of time, it is a gimmick feature just like majority of the things Sony have put in their smartphones. The camera are bang average and devices are way over priced for what they are.
Cheap handsets that are over priced.

If filters is your kink, it's actually a pretty easy solution.
paste the filter on a cheap phone case.
or 3d print a case with interchangeable filters.

Anonymous, 16 Jul 2020Same app on Samsung would be praised. Anyone has any doubt? Erm.. then don't visit this website if you don't like their reviews of Sony products.
Too pro for me.
The whole article sounds very critical, like it was set up to highlight the weaknesses of the app instead of the positive. And they literally started the review by saying 'here's the clip, complaints follow below'.
No mentioned of competition at all, like how was the experience using the app compared to shooting with S20 Ultra, iPhone 11 Pro, One Plus, LG and others. And can we achieve the same result with other app on other phones? These are things that I think should be in the article.
Now, I really need an alternatives to GSMArena

GSMArena has their own Youtube channels to upload video reviews, so obviously they will rate the app dubbed delivering "functionality and feel of a professional cinema camera" from video creators' perspective rather than average consumers' as they do on their usual camera reviews. And harsher opinions are expected since they will compare it to the usability of dedicated cameras they regularly use.
[deleted post]Which aluminum foil brand do you recommend for the best tinfoil hat?
This is literally the only website, bashing on the cinema app. Which by the way is the only phone that actually offer such alternative. Instead they keep praising about the horrendous blue skies from the galaxies, and their Fake/magical HDR. Or scoring a phone without even stereo speakers like the P40 like the best phone of the year. Hilarious!
[deleted post]Ah, another conspiracy theory. I think I've already seen enough of it on this website.
Anonymous, 16 Jul 2020Same app on Samsung would be praised. Anyone has any doubt? Or following the same logic, it also "would" get the same fair treatment from GSMArena. You really shouldn't rely on this kind of baseless assertion if you want your comment to be taken seriously.

Use your brain before you comment here.
I dont like sony mobile xperia too, but i never and will never hope they stop doing business.
"Right now, the CinemaPro app creates the impression of being hardly more than a pet project"
Thats really true. Well actually Mobile Business is not more than just a a Pet Project too. Sony never serious doing Mobile Business.
You better stop doing Mobile Business, sony.
No one buy your xperia anymore.
Question on Cinematic look, is there a difference shooting on a specific shutter speed vs. a video shot at higher 30-60fps but exported to 24 fps?

You have zero idea about different Android skins.
One hand... moreAny phone with android 9 or 10 can pull down notifications to middle of screen.
I can tell boas exist. Another site complained about the position of the icon to switch to front cam. Because it is at the top when phone is held vertically.
Since android 6.0 you can switch by doing diagonal swipe. No need to touch front cam icon.
