Sony Xperia ion 12MP camera samples
To tell you the truth, we do find the still and video that we took to be quite good, but of course, we need to test the actual retain unit (this one here may not be final) to be able to draw any conclusions. We also took the same pictures with the Panasonic Lumix FZ40 digital camera for reference.

So, what do you think of these samples? Do you like the pictures and video that the Sony Xperia ion's 12MP camera makes? Tell us with your comments!

I vote this camera phone becasue the Panasonic DMZ-40 has strange image noise at high ISO while the cellphone handles it much better at a slight lost for detail. Either way, the cellphone still capture more detail then the camera did.

I'm quite impress on the performance of Ion. Even without xenon, it preformed phenomenally great. I was expecting a disappointment since HTC Titan 2(16 mp), but it has one of the best indoor photo performance to date. I wish a head to head comparison to the legedendary N8 or the future new N8.

Impressive. Sony only now need to provide compac "zoom lense attachment kits" for the phone standardised for all Xperia range smart phones eg: Fish-Eye Panoramic zoom, lense attachment etc etc.

Will T-Mobile get any love of this phone into its lineup?

PA needs to do a photo contest with Xperia Ion, N8, Titan 2, iPhone 4S, GS2, RAZR MAXX, Nitro HD/Spectrum, and Torch 9810 (blackberry just for comparison.) or whatever the best camera phone for each company is but these are what I think. And of course wait til all these are out!

Now, that's a fine camera.
Xperia ion is the big daddy of androids right now. Heck, it's the best phone to buy when it comes out. Period

Holy...the camera is just spectacular. For a smartphone this small, I am just...amazed.

In the ION video sample, Nintendo's legendary Reggie Fils-Aime was captured!! Nobody else recognized him? ;D
Very interesting phone! I am thinking about buying a Sony(Ericsson) phone for quite a while now, because of the miserable photo quality of most Android phones. Reminds me of my beloved SE-K800i. None of the phone sucessors I had, was capable of shooting photos that good.

These manufacturers are too overly concerned with how thin their phone is. There's no reason for this not to have a xenon flash on it, other than they didn't want to give it a Nokia N8 camera bulge.
