Exceptional Camera

The 19 megapixel main camera in this handset is the world’s first Motion Eye system that captures movement that the human eye can’t see, also known as Predictive Capture. It helps me get just the right shot with advanced movement and color capture. It also features unique super slow motion video recording that makes it easy to chronicle those memorable moments with the kids.

We like to record and photograph our children as they grow to preserve great memories for both us and for the next generations to come. The Sony Xperia XZ Premium gives us sharp pictures and video with the built-in Exmor™ RS image sensor and cutting edge G Lens. It automatically adapts to different light conditions, including low light levels for brighter, clearer images.

The RGBC-IR sensor balances the color so that the images are always vibrant. The audio is clear and features 3D stereo sound quality and digital noise canceling (DNC).
