Sony introduces the Xperia 5 IV, a premium smartphone that can beautifully capture the important moments. It is very similar to the powerful features of the Xperia flagship, but with a compact design. Xperia 5 IV is the first Xperia 5 series smartphone with real-time eye AF and real-time tracking on all lenses for perfect portrait shots. This smartphone also has a 12MP front camera that lets you capture amazingly clear selfies and videos even in dark environments. In addition, the Xperia 5 IV offers BRAVIA CORE technology for the Xperia device, wireless charging and battery sharing. With the latest chipset and a powerful 5000mAh battery, you can create impressive content all day long and stream or share with ease.
Capture the Moments as a Creator
Technologies in the Xperia 1 IV smartphone and Alpha series cameras, such as Eye AF and Object Tracking, come together in a compact design on the Xperia 5 IV to ensure you never miss a special moment. 120 fps readout image sensors on all three lenses achieve 4K slow motion recording at 120 fps (up to 5 times), so you can capture your life like never before. Videography Pro also allows you to stream your content directly to streaming services. For selfies and vlogging, the new front camera has an improved 12MP sensor, enabling 4K HDR content with excellent contrasts. In addition to the ability to take clear selfies in difficult places such as extremely dazzling or dark environments. Combined with the Vlog Monitor (XQZ-IV01, sold separately), you have a vlog setup that gives you more creative control over telling your story. Xperia 5 IV is also equipped with an external monitor function. By connecting a mirrorless camera (such as the Alpha series cameras), you can instantly deliver high-quality images captured with Alpha while maintaining control of the Xperia 5 IV.
Since selling 93/RCA Platinum, emerging music star Kat Burns has just announced her upcoming single, People Pleaser. For that, I teamed up with Sony Xperia to create a music video, shot entirely with the Xperia 5 IV. Taking advantage of the creative options with manual settings in Videography Pro, “People Pleaser” is brought to life by capturing spontaneous flight photos. “The eye AF and object tracking on the Xperia 5 IV is exceptional. There was a lot of movement in many of the scenes we shot and the eye AF was always good,” said Jomar A O-Meally, Chief Videographer. You create content on Xperia 5 IV, you can use your imagination. By packing the latest technology into a compact device that you can take anywhere, said director Nathan James Tate, anyone can become a filmmaker. While Music Pro was used to record a cappella for choir and was used in the video, Cat Burns praised its ease of use: “It’s a great feature to record and upload beautiful audio right away without using a laptop. This saves time in my hectic schedule!”.
