Unprecedented image quality

The Xperia 1 V's revolutionary Exmor T for mobile image sensor has an innovative 2-Layer Transistor Pixel – one for the photodiode and one for the phototransistor – 2x better than its predecessor in low light , with less noise. People, animals, cityscapes, landscapes: your world, beautifully captured.

Video with cinematic colour and tone

S-Cinetone for mobile

Based on technology from Sony's Cinema Line cameras, S-Cinetone for mobile enables you to shoot video with beautiful skin tones and a more cinematic look, without complex post-production colour grading.

This short video is an example of S-Cinetone for mobile, available on Xperia 1 V. A woman walks through a room of dark wood, lit by daylight through a row of windows. Seats line the sides of the dark room, with bright daylight in the background presenting a challenging, high dynamic range, filming scenario. Despite this, it is possible to see the details of the room, furniture, and outside.

The woman sits, and we see her from multiple angles and in different lighting. In the final shot — a close-up of the woman — she stands close to the window, with both the full light falling on her face, and a shadow from the window frame, capturing a cinematic shot to highlight her beautifully pale skin and red lips as she turns towards the camera.
