published on July 20, 2020

This video is brought to you by Squarespace from websites and online stores to marketing tools and analytics Squarespace is the all-in-one platform to build a beautiful online presence and run your business this has been kind of an announcement intensive week but I've

Got one more for you guys I want to talk about an announcement from Sony this happened earlier this week this is not a camera it's not a lens it is the new phone many of you know that I have reviewed both the Xperia one and the

Xperia 5 this year it's a phone that I've been very impressed with especially when you consider these are kind of the first part of a reboot that Sony are doing there was an announcement this week for the Xperia 1 mark 2 as well as

A development announcement for the Xperia Pro so I want to get to both of these today because I think there's some really exciting stuff in the mix but first let's talk about the Xperia 1 mark 2 as I mentioned in my experience here

This is an interesting phone because Sony is this gigantic company that umbrellas over many divisions and so you have the Sony Alpha Division which is the camera division you have cine alto which is high-end video you've got

Bravia that does TVs you've got a gaming division so these phones represent actually a collaborative effort across all of those little sub companies under the big Sony umbrella and you're getting a phone I think that's really starting

To look interesting so with the Xperia 1 mark 2 the cameras on this phone are going to integrate features like real-time auto focus even animal AF we're looking at 20 frames per second burst shooting with full AFA e tracking

While using the main 24 millimeter wide angle camera there's also full manual control this time around we're finally getting raw support and this is all going to be coming to the phone any future software

Update the Xperia 1 Mark 2 actually features a triple camera configuration you have three 12 megapixel sensors and these are gonna sit behind 16 millimeter lens a 24 millimeter lens and a 70 millimeter lens these are all Zeiss

Lenses with Zeiss T coating that are going to give you quote-unquote exquisite rendering and contrast the 16 millimeter and the 24 millimeter cameras both feature sensors with dual photodiode autofocus and then the

Largest sensor of the bunch that's on the 24 millimeter camera in the middle is a 1-1 7 inch Exmor RS for mobile that's actually 50% larger than the one 26 inch sensors that Sony has used in the past and we

Also get a 3d indirect time-of-flight sensor that's going to provide better low-light autofocus this is powered by the Sony buy ons x4 mobile engine that's going to allow you to do things like 60 calculations per second for auto focus

And auto exposure on the main camera and on the 16 and 70 millimeter cameras it will do these up to 30 calculations per second the Xperia one mark 2 also has upgraded hardware it uses a snapdragon 855 5g processor it's got 8 gigabytes of

RAM and comes with 256 gigabytes of on-board storage of course we retain the 21 by 9 aspect ratio 65 inch 4k HDR OLED display with 100% coverage of dcpip 3 we now have a four thousand milliamp battery with wireless charging support

Finally and also an IP 65 68 water and dust resistant rating few months back I did a review of the Xperia One when it was released and I also did one on the Xperia 5 and I was very impressed with both of these as really interesting

Alternatives any very overcrowded smartphone markets so if you look at smart phones particularly in terms of image making this is part of everybody's day-to-day life now we communicate using a visual language more than we ever have

In the entire human history so this is really exciting to me actually but what I like that Sony offer that's very different is they offer you a phone that will also operate like a camera and this is kind of one of their strong suits I

Think because you have this umbrella of Sony like I mentioned before you have all these companies that work underneath that and they all make really cutting-edge high-end products and so why not bring them together to make the

Best phone that you can find so what I personally like the most about Sony's approaches they let you use things like the camera as a photographer you have access to manual settings you get great image quality the lenses behave like

Lenses sure you do have computational imaging that goes on behind the scenes which is only going to get stronger as Sony keep progressing in this field but I really feel like that if photography is your thing this is the phone that

Behaves a lot more like a camera than other smartphones and so that's a really unique edge that Sony have in this space and I think it keeps them fairly competitive so I'm really excited what we've got with the Xperia 1 mark 2

Because the only downfall on the Xperia 1 and even the Xperia v were things like battery life the fact that you couldn't do wireless charging and so a lot of improvements have been made we're getting an even more upgraded camera

System there's a lot of functionality under the hood that we're going to be able to do this starts to rival what we see on cameras like the Sony a 9 now there was also a development announcement for the Xperia Pro which I

Want to get into as well but real quick I want to give a shout out to our sponsor for this video where the awesome folks over at squarespacecom present your photography using squarespace's modern professional portfolios the

Interesting so in many ways it's going to be similar to the Xperia one mark 2 it's going to have the same camera setup the same battery the same processor so on so forth but it is a 5g compatible phone which is going to include a unique

4-way antenna technology with low permittivity materials that's going to increase the sensitivity of 360-degree omnidirectional communication within the 5g space now I think we're still a little ways away from having 5g is a

Standard and one of the problems with this is the way that it transmits you have to have a clear line of sight to a tower so you can see that Sony are clearly being forward-thinking with this with coming up with an antenna scheme

That's going to essentially get you better reception so it'll be interesting to see how this plays out in the long run but the other interesting thing about this that I think a lot of you are going to be really into is this camera

Actually a micro HDMI input which is going to allow you to connect the phone to pretty much any camera that has HDMI output and so you're gonna be able to use the phone as a monitor for DSLRs mirrorless

Cameras professional camcorders whatever you want to plug in and hopefully it will also be possible to transmit broadcast video during shooting to a server or cloud that has a 5g connection so the idea is that you could get really

High quality looking video that you could stream over 5g connections to YouTube or Instagram or Facebook it's going to up the game of what you're able to do by using the phone technology and having it interface with cameras I still

Think we're a long way from 5g being the adopted standard but I do love the fact that Sony are being very forward-thinking with their strategy here because once 5g does come along you'll be able to do a lot more with

Higher speeds than we've had before and thinking about this phone in terms of how this interfaces with existing cameras obviously this is a space that Sony's been in for a long time not only for video but also for still photos and

How can we integrate those two things so if we have the broadband capacity to upload a really beautiful looking video that's broadcast quality to YouTube or wherever we want to upload it to then why not make that available that makes

The phone integrate with that system really nicely I mean if you look at the whole adoption of phones the reason one of the reasons they've been so popular with people is they enable us to do things in the mobile capacity while

We're on the go that we used to have to do on a computer you've got access to your email you don't have to be chained to a desk and a device and I think being forward looking into how photography and how cameras and how video interfaces

With this I think is actually pretty cool so I hope to get my hands on an experience into review for you guys I am really excited about that phone I would love to know what you guys think about all this drop me a comment below I'll

See you all in the next video until then later
