Photographer Brandon Hill shoots portraits with the Sony Xperia 1 and Xperia 5

Sony’s Xperia 1 and Xperia 5 smartphones offer powerful photo and video features, including advanced face and eye-detection autofocus technologies inherited from Sony’s Apha-series mirrorless cameras. Sony’s Eye-AF works by analyzing the scene in front of the camera in real-time, and identifying and focusing on human eyes. If the camera or subject move, detected eyes and faces are tracked within the frame. A green square shows that an eye has been identified.

Portrait and commercial photographer Brandon Hill took the Sony Xperia 1 and Xperia 5 to House Studios recently, here in Seattle, to see how they performed. During a busy portrait shoot, Brandon worked with model and athlete Krista Armstead to put together several shooting scenarios, including indoor and outdoor lighting, and even a trampoline, to test the phones’ high-speed shooting and 4K video capabilities.
