The Xperia XZ Premium from Sony

 

The Xperia XZ Premium from Sony might just be the best smartphone we have ever seen. Beautiful and robust design, a sleek aesthetic and packed full of enabling tech. From 4K video recording and display to Super slow motion footage – capturing life’s adventures at 960 frames per second.

Water resistant, dust-proof and reinforced Gorilla Glass make it perfect for shooting stills and video when adventure-bound. A damaged screen, seen with many other leading brands of mobile phones, is yet to be seen with an Xperia.

The 5.5” 4K HDR display is also remarkable and with ultra-fast charging times and intelligent battery / power management, it’s the perfect device for travel. Enjoy immersive 4K HDR content and High-Resolution Audio on long train or plane journeys.

The Xperia XZ Premium has a very nice 19MP camera on board, with excellent Superior Auto and Manual shooting modes and is able to capture crystal clear video in 4K, with top-shelf sound quality.

We think the most exciting feature of this device is its Super slow motion capability – at up to 960 frames per second.

Not only is this feature ground breaking in a device this size, it is supremely useful when shooting food and travel.

As is the norm with capturing slow motion footage, you need good lighting to get a good result. Shooting in direct sunlight at the beach, we were able to capture some amazing results – water and dust resistance meant we were happy to take the phone into the surf to capture crashing waves.
The colours are bright and the contrast is good – the final footage can be edited on the phone to produce some striking results. It did prove a little tricky catching the decisive moment, but with a little persistence the result can be astonishing.

Everything looks better in Super slow motion and we think that the Xperia XZ Premium is a real game changer – get ready to see the internet flooded with a barrage of startlingly beautiful slow motion videos.

 

 

 

After using the device for a few weeks now, we have a few ideas on where the application of Super slow motion could be ideal – subjects where the motion to be captured is continuous or for a longer duration as opposed to a fleeting moment. For example a sparkler has a long duration to capture, whereas a cracker goes off quickly. Other subjects include: people dancing, liquids pouring, a bungee jump, a wheel spinning, water from a hose, waves in the ocean, a child blowing bubbles, people jumping off a sand dune.
