Xperia PRO | Professional smartphone with HDMI input
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
Invaluable for camera operators on location, the Network visualizer feature shows your data transfer status, as well as providing communication throughput.
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.
The Xperia PRO has a shortcut button which you can assign to launch specific apps
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.
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.
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.
Our 3D iToF sensor instantly calculates the distance between the camera and your subject for fast, accurate autofocus in any scene.
The BIONZ X™ for mobile engine has a unique algorithm developed by Sony, for increased light sensitivity and images with less noise.
Our 1/1.7” Exmor RS image sensor is 50% larger than on the previous model and has larger pixels, which receive more light for better image quality.
The 6.5" 4K HDR OLED display features a 21:9 CinemaWide aspect ratio and support for BT.2020 colour space. With Creator mode "powered by CineAlta", and a specially calibrated D65 white point, it references the colour reproduction of Sony professional colour monitors.
