Professional technology from Alpha cameras
The Xperia 1 IV was co-developed with the engineers behind the latest Alpha 1 series cameras, renowned for their industry-leading autofocus technology, and with input from professional photographers, who helped tune the technology and refine the photographic experience and results. And just as Alpha photographers expect the same performance in any lens, so the Xperia 1 IV offers the same AF capabilities across all its lenses.
Real-time Eye AF on all lenses
Real-time Eye AF on all lenses lets you take stunning portraits, whether you're photographing people or animals. Even if your subject is on the move or one eye is covered, you'll capture memorable images full of energy and expression.
Up to 20fps AF/AE HDR burst shooting, whichever lens you choose
The Xperia 1 IV offers the same incredibly fast performance across all lenses. Whichever one you choose, you can capture up to 20fps continuous burst shooting, complete with autofocus and auto exposure. And you can take stunning images in any lighting conditions with HDR (High Dynamic Range) for the richest colour and contrast.
Real-time Tracking on all lenses
When you're trying to photograph a subject that won't stay still, a little assistance is always welcome – so the Xperia 1 IV features Real-time Tracking on all lenses.
True optical zoom lens with no image degradation
With true 85-125mm optical zoom, the Xperia 1 IV offers images free of digital degradation between 85mm-125mm. Combined with optical stabilisation and Real-time Eye AF and tracking, it's ideal for portraits with optical bokeh.
Three versatile lenses, including new telephoto with true optical zoom
The Xperia 1 IV gives you a choice of three lenses – 16mm ultra-wide, 24mm wide, and 85-125mm telephoto with true optical zoom – with the same fast speed and AF capabilities in all lenses. Like an Alpha camera, when you change lens the AF speed stays the same.
