Professional photographer Nick Didlick wants to show us how good the quad-cam of the Sony Xperia 1 II really is in a hands-on video promo, which as an Alpha 9 user features the well-known feature set with eye autofocus, 20fps bursts and manual control on the new Sony mobile phone.
As a photojournalist and sports photographer, Nick Didlick has been using the Alpha 9 series for years and has now been drawn to the Xperia promo carts. In a new Sony Xperia 1 II hands-on video (see below), the professional tells us how well you can achieve professional results with these new Sony smartphones, which was announced in February and is still not available on the local market, especially because Sony has many Professional Alpha camera features in this small smartphone.
These include the familiar interface with manual control options for ISO, White Balance, or Shutter Speed as well as the features adopted from the Alpha series such as 20fps burst shooting or eye autofocus, which enable excellent results, especially for moving objects. Also not to be underestimated is the dedicated trigger on the side or the 6.5-inch OLED display with 4K resolution as a “control monitor” and for first processing steps.
In contrast to the competition, the Xperia 1 II does not yet use high-resolution sensors, instead, there is a trio of 12-megapixel sensors between 16 and 70 mm focal length as well as a 3D TOF sensor for better autofocus results and portrait shots. The Sony Xperia 1 II release date is still not yet known, while the device is already listed at the Bhphotovideo.com store with “Notify When Available” status without any pricing details.
Sony has not yet made public statements about the price, presumably, we will only receive information on availability in June – the cheaper Xperia 10 II will also be available from mid-June this year.
