Only Sony users can understand quality of it,this phone is beast !
Ali Bashir, 27 May 2020I am assuming the 20fps AF/AE doesn't work on under 1/20ss however it doesn't matter. No, unfortunately only on higher shutter speeds
Joe, 27 May 2020Relax. The camera is nothing special. Phone is overpriced. Next. So 64 or 108MP is what you call special?
Joe, 27 May 2020Dude, they couldn't even provide an under display finger print sensor at $1200? I still have t... moreThey're useless, what are you gonna do if your sxreen breaks huh? Saying that from experience, side mounted is just fine, plus, it's not an ugly and inconviniwent rear mounted
I am assuming the 20fps AF/AE doesn't work on under 1/20ss however it doesn't matter.
joe nodden, 27 May 2020Oh so it's 60 exposure level adjustments per second. Not calculations. Hence why I was pretty ... moreA calculation is a mathematical determination of the amount or number of something.
If the phone needs to work out a given amount of numbers to get the correct exposure and focus it is not an expression as you say but a calculation.
Sony camera technicians (who know more about this than us both) call it a calculation, the Oxford dictionary defines it as a calculation.
Again you may prefer more megapixels, I prefer to take the option of lower image processing time. You prefer faster screen refresh, I prefer 4k. We are thankfully completely different people with different views, that doesn't mean one of us is wrong in our choices, we both pick what we use more and find more useful. Since we can't have 4k at 120hz or front facing speakers without bezels or large megapixel counts with 10ms photo processing.
Once you understand this, I'm sure you will be a happier person
Standard camera app is now only auto, manual redirects to CinemaPro for video, and PhotoPro for photo.
Programmable shutter button can lead directly to Alpha PhotoPro, where point n shoot only people can preset their autoHDR in P mode.
So yeah, cam can be setup for everyones liking.
Seems Sony is pushing users to generally use camera like an Alpha mirrorles one.
Cudos to that.
joe nodden, 26 May 202020 fps and 60 calculations a second? What? What are you even trying to say? 20 fps isn't good.... moreBro he's talking about the shutter burst speed for long consecutive photo shoots not video framerate or slow motion.....leave those kind of things for us tech nerds😅.
Smithravi, 27 May 2020Just copy pasting my own comment so that it won't get lost - 4K HDR 10bit Display (Only mob... moreDude, they couldn't even provide an under display finger print sensor at $1200? I still have to use a side mounted finger print sensor? That's so ridiculous. What planet are you living on where this phone is a good deal at $1200?
Guys I've seen camera tests of mark ll and I can say it's freaking crazy guys . Forget all you knew about Sony's for Xperia lineup cause this is the first phone that's come out this year that I can actually give a 10/10 for its camera performance and video quality. In case you want to call a Samsung or Huawei flagship then I'll let you know that I have been using the S20 plus and my man's been using the ultra and none of them are better at photo quality than Xperia 1 markll.... except for the Crappy name tho🤦
Just copy pasting my own comment so that it won't get lost
- 4K HDR 10bit Display (Only mobile to cover BT.2020 gamout other than DCI-P3)
- 4K HDR recording at 60fps & 2K HDR recording at 120fps
- God tier 20 fps AF/AE with Eye AF and 60fps calculations (even in low lights)
- Legendary Zeiss lens with T* coating (no more ghosting)
- Large physical sensor size for low light conditions
- Photo pro & Cinema Pro
- 21:9 aspect Ratio unlike typical 20:9 (no Need of zoom in and zoom outs for atleast 21:9 content)
- Sexy design without ugly notches and punchholes (+ fits good in one hand). Probably Lightest & slimmest flagship this year 2020
- Fast processor unlike lousy exynos or mediatek or kirin with 5G sub6 included
- Dual front end facing Speakers (immersive effect)
- 360 degree audio function + Dolby Atmos tuned by Sony pictures/Music
- Wireless charging
- Headphones jack (no audio losses like in BT and probably will be the only flagship with 3.5 mm in 2020 )
- Motionblur reduction (90Hz equivalent & 120Hz touch sensing)
- MicroSD Expansion upto 1TB (Now a days it is a big deal to have this)
- IP65/68 Rating (Only mobile to include two ratings)
- Camera shutter button
- Power button as fingerprint scanner
- UFS 3.0 & LPDDR5
- 8GB RAM/ 256GB ROM
Honestly what other flagship company is providing these features for 1000-1200$?? Not saying it is cheap but considering the Prices of other flagships, it is still worth packed with lot of Features. Premium design and weight added.
PS: Last year 6GB Xperia and 4GB iPhone performed onpar with 12GB ram samsung and OnePlus in speed test. This also proves how crap Samsung and OP ram management is. Anything over 8GB ram is nonsense (even with 3 chrome tabs open) today. Over 12GB is stupidity and where Mr.Silly lives
Edit: 250€ worth WH-1000M3 or WF-1000M3 is pretty darn deal considering the price for mobile you're only paying 950€. This is less than OP 8 Pro (1070€ with charger)
I want love about this phone for me
its an awesome phone but $1200 is just too much. V60 would be a better choice at $800, comes with an extra screen too.
joe nodden, 25 May 2020"so he says 4k is worthless, and better to watch on a 27" monitor. But doesn't accept that the... moreWhy is it then that Sony's new cameras are making leaps in the photography world and taking on Nikon (which, believe it or not, uses Sony's own sensors)? I'm actually looking forward to see how this phone turns out in terms of photography.
Obviously, just having excellent sensor doesn't guarantee anything, a LOT depends on the software in mobile photography world (by software I don't mean the user interface), and obviously optics are another pain point of mobile world that needs to be overcome by software creativity, but I'm thinking this one might be quite good, and might finally be the point when Sony comes in with a bang.
I have bought the phone through Amazon and it just arrived right now. I immediately fell in love with the design. It is tall and has a gorgeous screen. I love how clear are the photos but they won't beat my iPhone 11 Pro snapshots though.
Joe, 27 May 2020Relax. The camera is nothing special. Phone is overpriced. Next. Finally a sensible person.
It's a great phone, Sony as I heard and saw in some reviews improved a lot of things and added some new features* The marketing of this company is poor regarding the phone segment but I highly think that Sony is doing it on purpose not to waste money on unnecessary causes. The price is flagship level and the 1 Mark II is giving us the lastest specs = great smartphone, as every flagship phone it could have some flaws as S20 Ultra(cam focus troubles), X2 pro(Medium to poor battery life while enjoying 120Hz Refresh rate). Fanboys will say nah the 1 Mark II is trash but this is only because the one who says this truly believes in the hypes released by Samy or iPhones in example or else. & regards every other phone as trash (sheep mindset) while we started to see small companies build dazzling gadgets for a small price........... Let's get back to the Xperia 1 Mark 2, The 1200USD priced is justified as 250 USD worth for the latest and best wireless SONY headset and that keeps 950 USD for the 1 Mark 2, and that's for me if I had that money now I'd not hesitate buying it especially when it comes with a headset combo gift, and yeah for the people that are going to say that Sony has trash cameras : I will personally not use stock camera app but I will use Camera Pro and Cinema Pro Apps that come installed on the phone because I am always editing pictures before posting to social media. So that's my opinion please share your humble opinions with me. Peace
