This short video, shot in a vertical portrait aspect ratio, is an example of the automated output from the Xperia Video Creator App. It features shots captured for ‘Upcycle Studio with Coco’, a vlog about repurposing old clothes into fashionable garments.   

Under cheerful background music, we see a montage of sunny outdoor shots, with Coco dancing in front of a clothes line featuring her upcycled creations. Several shots also feature Xperia slow-motion video capture.

The video ends with a black screen and the title “FIN” (Latin for ‘End’) in white text.

Cinematic slow-mo and colour with ease

Achieve perfect skin tones with the Xperia 5 V S-Cinetone for mobile technology. Capture incredible moments that'll wow your friends and followers in 4K 120fps slow-motion01.

This short video, shot in a vertical portrait aspect ratio, demonstrates the natural colour and soft highlights available when using the S-Cinetone for mobile video. It features shots of a woman in various urban environments, in daylight sun and shade, focusing on natural skin tones and cinematic imagery.

A mic made for vlogging

A pair of stereo mics let you capture the world around you - and a third mic, dedicated voice recording, prioritises what you're saying above all else. Plus, an Intelligent wind filter lets you capture clean and clear audio, so this background noise won't ruin your videos.

This short video, shot in a vertical portrait aspect ratio, demonstrates the voice priority microphone. This feature prioritises audio capture on the voice of a speaker in front of the camera, suppressing ambient and surrounding sounds.

A woman is outdoors on a street capturing an over-head selfie shot and speaking to the camera. Background sounds from the street are barely audible, and we can clearly hear her say “Hi everyone, I´m in Shibuya and it’s started to rain now. I´m wearing my purple hat and as you can see – as you can hear – the Xperia can capture the sound clearly without external microphones”.

Elevate every vlog

Take your vlogging to the next level with the optional Vlogging Monitor2 that lets you use the main camera to film and live stream yourself1. Our optional Bluetooth®2 shooting grip offers easy handling and physical controls, and a convenient mini tripod mode, for hands-free shots.

Create five star reviews

The Xperia 5 V is the smartphone of choice for product reviewers. The Product Showcase Setting on the main camera will automatically focus on the subject at the centre of the frame, switching easily between you and the product you're reviewing.

This short video, shot in a vertical portrait aspect ratio, demonstrates the Product showcase feature. This feature allows the camera to quickly focus on a subject in the centre of the frame making it ideal for product review videos. It will automatically shift the focus between a person speaking to the camera and a product they are holding up.

A woman inside a studio says, “Hi everyone, it’s Stephanie here today and I´m gonna show my outfit, starting from this shoe I brought last weekend in Shibuya”.

Then she picks up an open-toed shoe with a spiral pattern in cream and light green, and holds it in front of her for the camera. The focus quickly and smoothly shifts from her to the shoe, and she describes the details of the shoe “I think it is so nice and, like, the pattern here is so unique, and I like it so much”.

When she moves the shoe back out of the frame, the camera returns to focus on her again.
