If you own a Xperia Z, ZL, ZR, Z Ultra or Xperia Tablet Z then you’ll be happy to hear that Sony Mobile has pushed the Timeshift burst camera app into the Google Play Store. This app first appeared on the Xperia Z1 and is pre-installed on all Z1/Z1s handsets, however all of you running the latest Android 4.3 update, which includes Sony’s social camera, can download Timeshift burst.
Timeshift burst captures 61 frames within just 2 seconds and starts even before you have pressed the camera key. You can then cycle through the thumbnails to select the best shot.
Sony’s Android 4.3 firmware update for the above Xperia Z series of handsets only included a few pre-installed camera apps (Superior auto, Manual, Picture effect and Sweep Panorama). You then need to add further camera apps via Sony Select.
The problem is that Sony has not included Timeshift burst in the library of camera apps through Sony Select. This is odd, as unless you know where to look for it, this app will completely pass you by. The same goes for the AR Effect app that also isn’t available through Sony Select. We imagine this must be an omission and that they will appear in Sony Select shortly, in the meantime you can click on the Play Store links below for both camera apps.
