Large 1.0-type Exmor RS CMOS image sensor with phase detection AF sensor

Based on the RX100 VII's sensor but developed and tuned exclusively for the Xperia PRO-I, the large 1.0-type sensor offers high levels of image resolution and less noise. The result is superb imaging quality with realistic textures and remarkable detail.

Highly sensitive 2.4μm pixel pitch 

The 1.0-type image sensor's impressive 2.4μm pixel pitch offers high sensitivity and contributes to outstanding texture reproduction, even when shooting in low light.

Less noise in low light

Thanks to the high-sensitivity 1.0-type image sensor, the Xperia PRO-I can achieve photos with less noise in low-light conditions.

Clear details in high dynamic range conditions

In high dynamic range situations, the 1.0-type image sensor enables the Xperia PRO-I to bring out the detail, both in the dark areas and the bright parts of the image.

Triple lens and 3D iToF sensor for total creative freedom

The Xperia PRO-I's 24mm lens with 1.0-type image sensor is complemented by two further lens options, a 16mm and a 50mm, enabling you to get creative with composition. A 3D iToF sensor instantly calculates the distance between the camera and your subject, ensuring fast, accurate autofocus in any scene. All 3 lenses support phase detection AF.

Processing for high-speed performance and impeccable imaging quality

The latest BIONZ X™ for mobile image processing engine, Sony's unique front-end LSI and 1.0-type image sensor, and Sony's original image-processing algorithms, ensure accurate imaging, even with quick-moving subjects.

AF that covers more of the frame

On the Xperia PRO-I, 315 (21x15) phase detection AF points cover 90% of the frame. So AF works pretty much wherever your subject is, and is able to lock on to your subject incredibly fast.

Real-time Eye AF – for humans and animals0

Real-time Eye AF lets you take stunning portraits, whether you're photographing people or animals. Even if your subject is on the move or one eye is obscured, you'll capture memorable images full of energy and expression.

Real-time Tracking keeps fast-moving subjects in focus0

Using AI and a 3D iToF sensor to measure distance, Real-time Tracking can accurately detect and focus on a fast-moving subject, then keep on tracking it even if it temporarily moves out of sight. To specify your subject, simply touch it on the Xperia PRO-I display.

20fps burst shooting0 with less noise

The fast image sensor offers continuous burst shooting at up to 20fps, and the camera tracks subjects with AF/AE calculations at up to 60 times per second, even when they're moving erratically or at high speed. Even in low-light conditions, burst shooting with the Xperia PRO-I produces sharp images with less noise, thanks to the unique processing engine.

Anti-distortion shutter 

The 1.0-type image sensor's fast readout helps suppress the rolling-shutter effect that can distort images when photographing fast-moving subjects.

Optical image stabilisation for shots with less blur0

If your hand is unsteady when you're taking the shot, Optical Image Stabilisation technology helps deliver images with less blur, even in dark conditions.

Multi frame noise reduction

In low light or high dynamic range situations, the Xperia PRO-I can utilise multi frame noise reduction. It automatically shoots more than 10 images continuously, combines them, reduces the noise, and records them as one image to further enhance the high imaging quality.

12bit RAW for smooth colour gradation0

When shooting in RAW format, the Xperia PRO-I supports 12bit which creates smooth and rich tonal gradation of the colour without banding.

Controls and settings inspired by Alpha

With Photography Pro on the Xperia PRO-I, you'll find controls usually found on professional cameras. Using an interface inspired by Alpha cameras, you can choose manual controls or automatic settings and shoot in RAW. Photography Pro also offers Basic mode for fast access to a range of easy-to-use photography features including a touch shutter button.

Shutter button gives you that true camera feel

With its dedicated shutter button, using the Xperia PRO-I feels a lot like using the Sony RX100 series. It even features the same shutter switch module and requires similar button strokes to operate AF and shutter release. You can also long-press the shutter button to quickly launch Photography Pro and start shooting immediately.

Fit a camera strap for peace of mind

The Xperia PRO-I features a built-in strap-hole, so you can easily attach a wrist or neck strap0 for added peace of mind when you're out and about taking photos.

The perfect companion for your Sony Alpha camera

With the Imaging Edge™ Mobile app, you can use your Xperia PRO-I to transfer RAW files and files that use lossless compression from your Alpha camera, and remotely control Touch Tracking and Touch Focus for convenient AF operation. And with the Transfer & Tagging add-on, you can attach voice memos to image files from your Alpha camera, which are then automatically converted to text captions, or use your Xperia PRO-I to transfer files to an FTP server.
