Sony Xperia Pro-I as a video camera

Introduction

Sony made quite the stir a couple of days ago by announcing the ‘first smartphone with a 1″-type camera sensor and phase-detect autofocus’ – the Xperia Pro-I (‘I’ for Imaging). In our hands-on, we tried to clarify that, while in fact there is a 1″-type sensor in the phone, just its center is used, and it effectively behaves more like a 1/1.33″-type unit, essentially the same size you’d find in a Galaxy S21 Ultra, vivo X70 Pro+, or a Mi 11, and it’s even smaller than the one found in the Mi 11 Ultra (1/1.12″-type). We’ll have to keep repeating that, thanks to Sony’s misleading marketing language, but ultimately that’s not what we’re here for now.
