Perfectly capture those rare moments
The Xperia 1 IV was co-developed with the engineers behind Sony’s latest Alpha 1 series professional cameras, giving you a choice of three lenses – 16mm ultra-wide, 24mm wide, and 85-125mm telephoto with true optical zoom. You’ll even get the same fast speed and AF capabilities in all lenses, just like an Alpha camera. Real-time Eye AF maintains focus by detecting the human or animal eye (accuracy may vary according to your environment). So, even if your subject is on the move, you'll capture memorable moments full of energy and expression.
Create incredible content with breath-taking speed
Meet the world ́s first smartphone with 4K HDR 120fps video recording on all lenses. With the Xperia 1 IV, you can change the frame rate up to x5 to shoot slow-motion clips. And, no more waiting to share unmissable content – the Xperia 1 IV lets you livestream direct to video streaming services from your phone using Videography Pro. And, if you own a Bluetooth shooting grip GP-VPT2BT or Remote Commander RMT-P1BT, you can use Endurance mode to stream for longer.
