Sharper. Clearer. Brighter. Sony's industry leading compact digital cameras give you stellar picture and video quality. By combining the large 20.7MP Exmor RS for mobile image sensor, Sony's award-winning G Lens, and intelligent BIONZ for mobile image processing engine, the results are nothing less than amazing. The light-sensitive 27mm wide-angle lens captures more light in dark conditions. The large high sensitivity sensor is made exclusively for Xperia Z1 and is equivalent to the sensor size used in Sony's Cyber-shot™ digital still cameras, taking incredibly clear low-light pictures without sacrificing detail. The high pixel resolution, aspherical lens and BIONZ for mobile enables zoom without quality loss, while the high shutter speed prevents blurry footage.

As soon as you press the power button to wake up your screen, everything is up and running again. With a 3000mAh battery, Battery STAMINA Mode helps maximize every bit of that energy.
