Sony Xperia Z1 Camera Samples, Fresh Off The IFA BoothBy cheatmaster 12:46 Sat, 17 Jul 2021 Comments
The Sony Xperia Z1 went official yesterday at IFA in Berlin, and today we've got the capturing camera samples taken directly from our visit to the Sony booth.
First up are several 16:9 capturing camera samples in the maximum allowable resolution for that aspect ratio, 8MP. You'll see some accurate colors and fine dynamic range considering the interior lighting, but the oversharpening filter is working overtime to restore the sharpness lost after the generous noise reduction. At 8MP these shots have been downsampled from what essentially is a 20MP sensor, so the photos noise levels have certainly benefited from that.
The same cannot be assumed about our full resolution 4:3 shot, measuring 5248 x 3936 pixels, which takes advantage of the entire 20.7MP sensor on the Z1. this one is noticeably more noisy, but remember, the light conditions at the Sony booth were pretty bad.
Finally, here's a quick 1080p video we shot. The rather dim lighting conditions made for some repeated autofocusing attempts.
Given the interior lighting conditions and that the Xperia Z1 may not have finalized software, we won't be too quick in rendering a final judgment on Sony's recent flagship.
