Sony has the best phones for epic slow motion videos and here is a video to prove this

34

These days, it's hard to find many phones with unique features: there are very few that stand-out. We have the Portrait mode on the iPhone 7 Plus, the 'infinity display' Galaxy S8... and now, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium enters this hall-of-famers club with its unique 960 frames per second slow motion video recording.

The feature comes as part of Sony's new Motion Eye camera and it is available on both the Sony Xperia XZs and the Xperia XZ Premium. The latter is the one to score another feature that no other company except for Sony has: a 4K display on a smartphone, that's a full 2160 x 3840 pixels on a 5.5-inch LCD smartphone display. The XZ Premium is actually Sony's second phone after the Z5 Premium to sport a 4K screen, but the first to combine HDR capabilities with 4K resolution.

So how does Sony bring the news about this quite incredible new slow motion recording feature to the public? Well, how about a short movie directed by renowned film-maker Chris Cairns. To make it happen, Sony invited a bunch of journalist to sunny Lisbon, Portugal in a massive European Press event. Our own Nick T was there, too, and you can spot him at the 0:11 mark of the video above.


All of the invited journalists were handed a phone with a MotionEye camera and recorded a series of stunts and performances by some great artists. The result is a lush visual experience that could only be shot on a device like Sony's new Xperia lineup with 960fps slow motion. It's dramatic, it's fun, it's epic.

To put things in perspective, let's say that 240fps slo-mo is the best we currently have, and it's available only on a few premium phones like Apple's iPhone 7. The Sony's slow motion recording is 4 times slower than that.
