CAM­ERA

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - GGCHOICE -

Re­mem­ber the Cy­ber-shot se­ries that once used to of­fer the best imag­ing among smart­phones? Sony is try­ing to con­jured the same magic with the Xpe­ria Z’s 13MP cam­era. It is easy to op­er­ate with a wide range of set­tings and op­tions. We were im­pressed by the scene modes like anti-mo­tion blur, back­light correction HDR, hand­held twi­light, high sen­si­tiv­ity, gourmet and pet. The panorama mode was seam­less too. The ‘Su­pe­rior Auto’ mode, which tries to de­tect the scene and change set­tings ac­cord­ingly, was spe­cial. For in­stance, in low-light con­di­tions it au­to­mat­i­cally shifted to the night mode and switched from land­scape to por­trait as needed. Although, the mode se­lec­tion is very ac­cu­rate, you also have the op­tion of shift­ing to a nor­mal mode. In nor­mal mode, the 13MP cam­era cap­tured im­ages at 4128x3096p and switched to 12MP at 3920x2940p in the su­pe­rior auto mode. The im­ages were al­ways sharp and repli­cated real life colours.
