The Sony Xperia Z can take 999 pictures in 68 seconds

0. phoneArena 10 Feb 2013, 14:52 posted on

While the Sony Xperia Z was the hot handset following its CES appearance, some of the buzz disappeared during the launch of the BlackBerry Z10, but that doesn't take one thing away from the waterproof, dustproof Xperia Z which set hearts a flutter with its 5 inch FHD screen and quad-core Snapdragon processor...

"Sony wins!!!

Not only Sony Xperia Z has Burst Mode, there is and was before other phones which has Burst Mode feature also, the difference is that Sony Xperia Z does more photos through shorter time. So don't need to say that Sony made useless feature...

PhoneArenaUser don't bother, haters gonna hate, if he doesn't like Sony phones he can buy another brand, that is the beauty of Android. He needs to remember that Apple is the enemy.

People who "use" those features find them very very useful and helpful in their life. I am one of those.

Not much practical use but nice trick though. Too bad its so expensive and big. My hands aint gonna stretch. How i wish oems would consider packing this specs on a smaller phone.. Like 4 to 4.5 sounds good.

A pureview 41mp wp will be cool to see. At least the Z will still work after it's been peed on.

"s this a innovation,,, just copy paste trick.. take 999 picture per min by moving a camera.. sony now a days u r fooling us by showing this stupid kind of things" really copy paste trick ?? which devices that can take 999 photos in 68 seconds?? "wait for the pureview 41 mpx wp " who needs that?? tell me one single use of 41mp on a phone ?? only that it give weight and damn thickness which it look so damn bulk ... if they just made a camera like Galaxy camera with wp os and no gsm would be better for them.. so stop telling jokes about your nokia :/

It is not a fresh new that Sony Xperia Z can make 999 in less than a minute so it is not a "copy paste trick".

You have no clue on how this works

So nokia should just made a bigger, bulkier camera with no gsm radio, a smaller sensor, comparatively worse image quality to the 808, that is priced equally with other infinitely better cameras and they would have done better?

Sounds to me like no one would bat an eye lash if they did that. Also who needs 41mp? Well then who needs to take 999 shots of an object in a minute? Tel me one single use of taking 999 shots of an object ina minute. It only fills up your phonne with a lot junk pics that you then have to get rid of. Tell me which phone or point and shoot for that matter takes better pics than an 808?This argument irritates you doesn't it? Its because II like you just oversimplified the purpose of taking 999 shots per minute.

The Z's feature could be usefully for capturing fast moving objects and rapidly occurring actions. Like a race or something. Whatever the compromise in this feature maybe it makes up for it with its real world applications.

The 808's 41mp cam uses oversampling (not interpolation) to get extremely crisp and detailed lower res images as well as to near perfectly mirror optical zooming. As for the weight its lighter than the lumia 920 and its only the thinker than the 920 at the camera hump, but if you look at the capabilities of the camera on sites like this one or flikr where there are 10,000 808 pics you will see that the little camera hump is not much of a huge compromise any more. Besides the hump can be rendered non existent with a graphene sensor.

999 shots it's an extra option on a phone remember here we are talking about a phone so it should be light and slim .. not a damn heavy&bulky phone ... and saying i should look at 10k pictures on flicker that taken by 808's camera ?? why would i do that ?? no matter what the pictures are it won't be better then Canon&Nikon's dSLRs pictures ... so i'm asking you what's the point of pureview 808 as a whole and not only about camera ... as smartphone it's less then iphone or any android device also it got a dead OS ..so if you want all the featurs of a smartphone and you got Pureview 808 ..you will consider buying second hand smartphone either iPhone or Android ..so lets go to what i said before ... Nokia should just made Pureview 808 a digital Camera only like Samsung Galaxy Camera and also you would get Optical Zoom !! ... but as a Smartphone Pureview 808 is damn useless compare it to today's tech .

I think its pretty neat that it can shoot burst that fast...one question though.. Will the camera take good pictures or will the quality be sacrificed? Also can we stop bashing Nokia? At least they are combing two useful features...water proof is way more useful right? Still love Sony style though.. I think they make the best looking Android phones.

Forgot to laugh about the first line on this blog.. I would never forget about the Sony Z in the wake of any BB product. If the first Z10 is any indication of quality they are in trouble. They needed to come out with a phone that was better than the current phones in order to be competitive but that's not the case..

First of all I was talking about Sony Xperia Z and LG Optimus G!

Second, talking about the new LG's "beast" and Samsung Galaxy Note 2, here is few questions for you:

Does LG's "beast" is released? No!
Does LG's "beast" hardware and configurations are official? No!
Does LG's "beast" visual design are official? No!

So how you can say that the new LG's "beast" is rip off Samsung Galaxy Note 2 ???

SO GET YOUR FACTS!

I wonder what Sony fanboys would say if HTC fanboys bashed Sony, or Nokia fanboys bashed Sony, or Apple fanboys bashed Sony, etc. They'll all go "SAMSUNG HTC APPLE NOKIA LG ALL SUCK! SONY MOST INNOVATIVE IN THE WORLD! WE RULE THE WORLD WITH 0% MARKETSHARE!" LOL

Oh my gosh, I'm so hurt... not. What's wrong? You have to resort to ad hominem attacks because you can't refute anything?

Xperia Z is a complete rip off of Optimus G. When LG makes it, who cares? But when Sony does, Sony fanboys will all say "OMG SONY THE BEST! SAMSUNG AND APPLE GOING DOWN!"

Get some knowledge!
Design, hardware, specifications, user interface are different.

Boys, Boys, You're forgetting who the real enemy is, Apple! So put your knives away, Sony, Sammy, Moto, LG, HTC, they all push the bar in their own way, and give us what us Android lovers love, variety! I am personally pondering whether I should get the HTC One, for it's kickass screen and reasonable size, The Samsung Galaxy S IV for it's all around badassedness and feature packed Android flavor, The Moto X for its Moto radio, (rumored) Light or non existent skin, and Classic MOTO build quality. (I'm on Verizon so no Nexus, rightfully so Verizon would screw it up anyway, and LG and Sony don't make much for us) This is what makes Android awesome so forget your squabbles and focus on the Enemy, the one that sues and tries to take our beautiful variety away from us, the one that tries to make the whole phonescape as bleak and drab as its bland cookie cutter products; APPLE!!!

IMO 10-30 burst shots is enough. Since it is easy to take a picture if the subject are still.

Why use Burst mode when you have Scalado camera tech? Nokia (owns it), HTC, BBZ10 have it.
