Xperia Z front-facing camera demoed; results are surprisingly good [Video]

We have seen plenty of sample photos and video footage from the Sony Xperia Z’s 13.1MP Exmor RS camera. However, we have seen very little of its 2.2MP Exmor R front-facing camera. The video below looks to change that, showing both some sample video and stills from the camera. The results are surprisingly good for a front-facing camera, meaning you should get some great results when using Skype or Google Hangouts.

    What do you mean by “suprisingly”?

  • Cp2020

    It is bloody decent for a front cam.

  • Aokde Gharra

    wait a minute, why are they not shooting 1080p? is it not capable of 1080p according to sony??

  • just_being_real

    it’s a 2.2 front facing camera..smh

  • Aokde Gharra

    1080p is 1920×1080, thats 2.0736 mega pixels. 2.2 MP is capable of 1080p video.

    Wow.. That one powerful front camera never seen such clear crisp and well lit images and not to mention noiseless. Good job Sony, I’m happy that I’m buying this when it is released.

  • just_being_real

    capable but not effective.. you wouldnt get the results you want

  • it is not even 720p as you see when you Change it from 360p to 720p the stream of vido won’t stop. this means that the guy who uploaded to YouTube downgraded to 360p or did it from his mobile

  • John Doe

    it’s the “front-facing” camera. that’s why its surprisingly.

  • its 1080p but maybe there wans’t available 1080p quality in this video due to the shooting mode!

  • Dumbphone

    Still waiting for a 200 € low-/midrange cameraphone that can compete with 100 € digicams.

  • ProWeirdo

    In Xperia Z front camera is as good as front of Xperia X10 or SGS.

  • ProWeirdo

    back/main* camera of X10… My bad

  • Lunkz

    The awkward moment then you realise the front cam with his 2 mp is better than the main cam
