Tailor-made for professionals in the field

The Xperia PRO enables broadcast and photographic professionals to work faster and smarter than ever before. It's the world's first smartphone with dedicated HDMI input, and USB or Ethernet tethering with an Alpha camera. It gives professionals a variety of new possibilities.

Connecting camera to Xperia PRO using HDMI
Enhance your workflow with HDMI connectivity

Thanks to HDMI connectivity you can connect the Xperia PRO to your camera, making a range of tasks easier – from monitoring images to live video streaming using the speed of 5G. Your workflow has never run so smoothly.

Live streaming

Using a third party live streaming application, the Xperia PRO can stream video content from the camera or camcorder that is connected to the HDMI input terminal.

Expert view: Jason Vong & Vivienne Lee on live streaming

My name is Jason Vong and together with Vivienne, we run a YouTube channel on photography and videography education.

With Xperia PRO and our cameras, we found that this combination allows us to share our enthusiasm right away via a higher quality livestream. I recommend Xperia PRO for content creators who are looking for something that fits into their arsenal that's mobile, easy to use, but also the 5G speeds allow them to connect with their audience.

Use Xperia PRO as a high-quality 4K monitor

Use Xperia PRO as a high-quality external monitor or viewfinder with a range of useful settings such as brightness, zoom and grid lines. Simply connect it to a camera supporting HDMI or USB video class (UVC).

Expert view: Jason Vong & Darren Carroll on the External monitor feature

Xperia PRO has an HDMI port on the bottom, which allows us to get a clean video feed from our Alpha cameras, which turns it into a high quality external monitor. It's also a great form factor, and it doesn't require an external battery or power supply, so it's incredibly easy to rig up and use.

My name is Darren Carroll, I've been a professional photographer for 25 years now. For me, the advantage is that you can turn the monitor so that your subject can see exactly what you're seeing in the viewfinder, and I can see the correct white balance, I can see the correct exposure – it's tremendously helpful.

Fast, easy file transfers

Connect your Alpha camera to the Xperia PRO using the USB or wired Ethernet tethering and your images will be automatically transferred from the Alpha to the FTP server. Fast and reliable, the transfer happens seamlessly in the background – so you can concentrate on capturing the best shots. You can also transfer from an Alpha camera to the Xperia PRO using the Transfer & Tagging add-on, edit the pictures and send to the FTP server. 

Expert view: Darren Carroll talks faster workflows

Clients need access to images quickly for a number of reasons. If it's an editorial client, they want to update their website with fresh imagery as soon as possible. If it's a commercial client, art directors and creative directors want to see in near real time what we're shooting if they can't be on set.

When I'm out in the field, I can connect the Alpha 7s III to the Xperia PRO via tethered USB-C connection and then the Xperia PRO transmits those images via FTP, over the 5G network back to the client. I don't need an ethernet connection, I can just send my images right to the client.

Invaluable for camera operators on location, the Network visualizer feature shows your data transfer status, as well as providing communication throughput.

Endurance Mode for longer 5G for usage

Created to support efficient data transfer, Endurance Mode is another feature unique to Xperia PRO. With Endurance Mode turned on, users can continue to transfer data at maximum performance while tethering Xperia PRO with a camera device.

Professional technology from Alpha cameras

There’s never been a smartphone camera that can capture shots like the Xperia PRO. It was co-developed with the engineers behind the latest Alpha 9 series cameras for industry-leading autofocus. Real-time Eye AF works on both humans and animals, and the interface is designed to meet the demands of professional photographers with new manual controls and RAW support.

Outstanding ZEISS quality in your Xperia

ZEISS optics calibrated specifically for your Xperia smartphone. The ZEISS® T* coating contributes to exquisite rendering and contrast by reducing reflections. For true creative freedom, the Xperia PRO has three lenses in versatile focal lengths: 16mm, 24mm, and 70mm.

The Xperia PRO can capture moments that no other smartphone can. With up to 20fps continuous burst shooting, complete with autofocus and auto exposure, you can capture hundreds of moments in seconds and upload them straight away with 5G, without having to worry about making a selection first.

Real-time Eye AF – for humans and animals

By focusing on the eyes – the most expressive part of the face – Real-time Eye AF lets you capture lively, characterful portraits of both people and animals. Even when your subject is moving or only one eye is fully visible, Real-time Eye AF ensures you get the shot.
