Outstanding ZEISS quality in your Xperia®

ZEISS optics calibrated specifically for your Xperia® smartphone. The ZEISS® T* coating contributes to exquisite rendering and contrast by reducing reflections.

Up to 60 times per second continuous AF / AE calculation3

Stay focused, no matter what's happening in front of you. The Xperia 1 II continuously calculates autofocus and exposure up to 60 times per second. And with new algorithms for AF precision and performance, you'll get clear, in-focus shots of even fast-moving scenes.

The sensor designed for speed

Focus fast in any condition – day or night – with our innovative camera system. A Dual Photo Diode sensor5 delivers spectacularly fast and accurate focusing. With an autofocus system featuring a total of 247 phase-detection AF points covering nearly 70% of the sensor6, AF acquisition is achieved in just 0.03 seconds. And with an innovative 3D iToF (indirect Time-of-Flight) sensor7 for low light shooting, you'll get precision focusing, whatever the condition. It all comes together on the large 1/1.7" Exmor RS for Mobile imaging sensor6 with BIONZ X for Mobile engine, to deliver speed and incredible photos.

Capture the previously impossible with up to 20 fps AF / AE

The Xperia 1 II can capture moments that no other smartphone can. With up to 20 fps continuous burst shooting3 complete with autofocus and auto exposure, you can capture hundreds of moments in seconds.4.

Experience real-time Eye AF – for people and animals8

Capture stunning portraits of both people and animals with the sparkle and liveliness of perfect Eye Autofocus.

Fast focus, even in low light situations

In scenes where light is low or limited, you'll still enjoy fast autofocus, even when your subject is moving, thanks to three powerful technologies working together: a 3D iToF sensor, the BIONZ X® for Mobile engine, and the large Exmor RS for Mobile sensor.

Discover Photography Pro – inspired by Alpha

With the Xperia 1 II you'll find the controls usually found on professional cameras. You can choose automatic settings or manually control ISO, shutter speed, white balance, and more, then output to RAW (.DNG) with an interface that's inspired by Alpha cameras.
