Timeshift video demoed on the Xperia Z2

Timeshft videoThe Sony Xperia Z2 has a couple of big new camera features, Timeshift video and 4K video recording. If you want to get a better idea of how Timeshift video works then check out the video demonstration below. Timeshift video will capture video at 120 frames per second at 720p resolution. Once you have shot your video you can choose parts of the video that you want to slow down using a graphical timeline, which plays back at quarter speed.

Once the video is saved, you will find both your edited video (30fps) within the Album app, but also a second unedited video that has the whole video at 120fps. This gives you the option to use it later if you want to edit the video with the Movie Creator app or other software. We have also attached another video from Sony, showing a Timeshift video sample in action.

    Question is… Can it ever be ported to my XZU?!? :(

  • Deki

    Cool! I like it!

  • this is so amazing <3

  • valentino

    Goodbye Z1 AND Z ULTRA…
    welcome Z2!!

  • Z1ZLIndia

    Any ports for Z1 or the Z series ?

  • Apoorv Deshmukh

    Can’t wait to see this on Z1 :)

  • AhhdafunK

    Saddly true :(

  • AhhdafunK

    If only…

  • wei147

    Cool ….cant wait to trade in my xperia zr to this new baby woooohooooo!

  • Ruub

    Im sorry to say this but for the Z it doesnt seem to be possible as the Snapdragon s4 pro doesnt have enought processing-power for 120fps in 720p. But for Z1 im sure there will be either an official way to download it from Google Play or a port that can be found in xda.

  • Ruub

    Yes it can be ported, Xperia Z Ultra has almost the same specification powers as the Xperia Z2 :)

  • David Lettinga

    Should be ported to the Z1 as it essentially has the same processor and ram. Also it has the same camera

  • Timbo1

    For the Z1 I would say yes as well as “4k” because the S800 is capable of doing this. The Z not so much.

  • Timbo1

    There is no reason at all it wont come to the Z1, officially MAYBE but thats just so Sony could push the Z2 but it should be easily ported to the Z1 as well as “4k” recording because the S800 is capable of handling it.

  • MarkLastiwka

    Z1 has only 2GB of RAM

  • ZXcorr

    Hope this will be ported to Z1 Compact as well

  • Pepa

    when the record pause??

  • JMonkeYJ

    I hope you’re right, but the Z2 does have more RAM and faster RAM access (1866 vs 1600). Those improvements might be important for high-bandwidth recording like 4k and 120fps. I guess we will see :-)

  • Timbo1

    The S800 has the capability for 4k recording its all just a matter of Sony enabling that feature it doesn’t necessarily have to do with the amount of RAM.

  • lucasarg

    Port this now for the rest of the z series!!! So cool i want it con My x. ZL :v

  • Billy de Fretes

    cool… 2-3 slow mo in one video… this is great when i want to record basketball / football !!!

  • Wetto

    This better be available for the Z1 or I’m going to be extremely disappointed. I think its ridiculous you announce a new phone with new features 3 months after the number one flagship Z1 phone is released. Please Please Please make this available.

  • HardyHarHar

    Different processor also… But we’ll see soon… Hopefully they will add it on Z1.

  • David Lettinga

    My main point was there isn’t a huge difference in the processor and Ram. There shouldn’t be any reason it can’t be ported by Sony

  • z_user

    if this won’t be ported in my Z, then i’m sold with Z2…hold on, the Z3’s coming six months from now. so yeah, will wait for the Z3 then. lol!

  • adecvat

    If they port this to Z1, nobody will buy Z2 :)

  • adecvat

    LG G Pro 2 can 120fps 1080p

  • Timbo1

    Maybe officially but do you think that is going to stop anyone from XDA from porting it?

  • xperiamike

    wonderful…sloooooooooow motiiiiiion app so sony you know hahahaha, drop us the link to download this app too, we will definately upgrade from xperia V but,….come on please we will so ……apk please.

  • xperiamike

    i think people will buy, for higher ram and speed of processing , just like how some always buy new cars. ;)

  • Jerry Berglund

    Well the slowmotionfunction that apple got in their iPhones kan throw them self into the wall (as we say in sweden). Sony has done a much better version of it. SOny has done it again. :)

  • valentino

    but i just trade my z ultra for note 3 and this thing Pop Out!! WHY!!!!

  • Z1ZLIndia

    They may stop Z1 production ? Like the S

  • Rob

    Apart from the camera sensor being completely different… -.-

  • ertertert

    Six months after that the Z4 will come…

    Dude, bro, whatever… It is about processing power, not about the camera sensor.

    Deeper explanation: The phone needs much processing power to be able to handle 120 pictures taken in 1 second… The sensor just capture the colors, the processing-power handle that information and compile it into pictures and store them in your phone, the more processing-powers, the more pictures your phone is able to store in that same amount of time.
    Like your sight or hearing, you have two body parts(eyes and ears) that collects information, with that information your BRAIN is processing the information to be displayed or heard the right way for you. Better eyes, more information gathered to handle by your brain, which means clearer understanding or your surroundings, but not that you can see everything in slowmotion.

    Please use the magic tool called LOGIC when you try to look smarter than me or anyone else in the comment section, thanks!
