Sony’s Motion Shot app launches for the Xperia Z1

Sony_Motion_Shot_4Sony recently launched a new application for the Xperia Z1 called Motion Shot. As the name suggests the app allows you to capture the movement of a short movie so that it appears as a continuous picture. As the example shots below show, the app works best when trying to capture the movement of a sport, child, pet or any kind of moving object.

The app also includes a number of effects such as fade-in/fade-out and allows you to set the number of animation sequences. Images can then be saved (JPEG/GIF) and shared to a social network or uploaded to a cloud storage of choice. For further details on how to use the app click here.

    HTC One had that Long before 1020 was even announced…

  • the_black_dragon

    Hmm 720p? come on sony…
    Time shift already takes 60 Frames in 2s with 1080p… thats the Minimum Resolution i expect here…
    even burst mode tooks 10 Frames per second in 8MP! why not using the same mode here and we can take 8MP movement shots out of them?

    This is a good apps but sadly it always having backfocus issue where the background are more sharper then a subject. Hope sony will include blur adjustment for poutrait and manual focus adjustment apps. I really envy lumia 1020 manual focus mode.

    NO men, no tech!. ONLY software ¬¬. The Z1 also have a so nice camera, only needs better software implementation, what nokia puts before in the 1020.

    it’s not installing on my Xperia Z! Has anyone manage to install it on Xperia Z?

  • Rob

    App says it needs Xperia camera add-ons, don’t think those exist in Xperia Z’s camera app. Some people seem to have gotten it to run when using the Z1 camera port on Xperia Z tho.

  • Devon Llewellyn

    I hardly ever comment, but why the heck can’t the z1 record 4k video… please sony – update the camera. I want to utilize my 4k tv
