Xperia Z5’s SteadyShot video stabilisation pitted against the Xperia Z3

by XB on 5th September 2015

in Imaging, Videos, Xperia Z5 series


xperia-h113If you want to get an early look at the Xperia Z5’s implantation of its “SteadyShot with Intelligent Active Mode” mode then check out the video below. It puts the Xperia Z5 side-by-side against the Xperia Z3 to see which handset fares better when it comes to video stabilisation. The Xperia Z5 wins convincingly but we don’t know what settings were used for each phone (the Xperia Z3 video quality looks worse than it should). Either way, the Xperia Z5 is looking like a very accomplished handset already.

Thanks Abdul and Jóhann!

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    I would like to see the comparison between Z5, G4, Note 5, P8 and yeah that monster pureview 808.

  • Niek van Rijswijk

    Well it looked likes the Sony camera division really helped the mobile division. The Z5 looks 9000x times better then the already good z3.

    Will be very interested seeing the Z5 vs optical stabilized phones like the iPhone 6+ and Samsung s6 , note 4/5 ect. I’m guessing the Z5 will blow these out of the water.

  • Nawi

    Z5 is awesome!!!!

  • ????

    they finally get it with the 6-element lens

  • ????

    no contest. z3 already wins against the stabilization tech of those devices but only runs short in the image quality part. z1-z3 already have good stabilization but sub-par image quality.

  • Chihuax

    Damn!!!!! The diference is huge!! This is a dream come true!

  • ????

    finally a phone every stingy sony fan would aim to buy.

  • DBS

    In video, probably. In photos, no, since SteadyShot doesn’t work on photography. And those phones use OIS because they’re more concerned in providing the best picture quality instead of video while Sony seems to be taking the opposite road for some weird reason…

  • nfs2010

    Who’d ever thought Sony’s gimmicky sw steadyshot on Z3/2/1 would make those hw OIS craps look like bigger gimmicks? Add the enhanced mechanical stabilization Z5 on top of that, we got a winner! Don’t forget to market your sh*t this time, Sony!

  • mugglearchitect

    i find their backs more exciting haha
    LOOK AT THAT FROSTED WHITE I WANNA EAT IT
    the difference is stunning it is refereshing!!!

  • Abhi

    I wish they would add OIS.

  • Abhi

    It’s (Z3) actually pretty good, I leave it on manual as auto can be horrendous. I assume auto is much better on the Z5.

  • Timel

    Finally!!! Sony is on the right track now Hehehe
    Go! Sony Xperia ^_^

    P.s. Thx u so much for everyone who hardly complain about the camera quality of Xperia phones, if without people like you guys I think Sony still don’t realise about this problem.

  • nfs2010

    Thank YOU, Canadian Timel :P

  • raju

    OIS means? And uses?

  • ????

    just look at those images and say if you still need the OIS used on samsung and LG. according to pocketlint, z5 already has some sort of OIS mechanism.

  • Abhi

    It’s Optical Image Stabilization basically the sensor moves to compensate for your movement.

    Without it you normally have digital image stabilization.

  • Abhi

    If it does that would be nice.

  • Abdul Ghani

    to be honest i dont believe in mobile OIS looks like its marketing gimmick

  • Utsav Shah

    That 0.03 sec focusing mechanism just killed my z3!

  • Abhi

    Not really, also pretty useful at night when you need longer exposure times as obviously your hands won’t be completely still as a tripod.

    However you should not expect massive difference if that’s what you mean.

  • Clarence Alvarado

    Z5 series may not have OIS, but it incorporates closed-loop actuator which helps for the sensor shift stabilization it has.

  • Timel
  • Timel

    There’s just one thing that I still worry about… the Z5’s superior auto.

  • cloquazidus .

    at least someone is taking a different step in a good way… And z5 photos are great too.. Cant wait to hold this device now… haha :P

  • Tochi Nwodu

    My z3 sucked hehehehe

  • Sadman Khan

    I CANNOT wait for this to arrive in my country

  • Ditu Vlad

    Not necessary to be worried anymore. :) on the z5 you can finally change how much megapixels do you want to have the photo also on superior auto. We definitely need this on old devices like z2.

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    That is fuc…ng amazing….:-o

  • Oh wow, there’s definitely a huge gap in quality, wow.. They definitely hit the spot this time

  • ZeRo+

    On video recording yes, Sony Alpha guys are worked, but main is – PHOTO, and this it`s still not better, than not new LG G4 and Samsung S6….

  • Alex Norris

    He’s absolutely right.
    That’s Z5 photos, looks like _____always on Xperia cameras

    http://cdn6.fonearena.com/i/Camera%20Samples/Xperia-Z5/sony_xperia_z5_1.JPG

    Again blurred, again oversharpened, again noisy – like always. And noone Sony Alpha, noone Cybershot, can not be change this situation with xperia smartphone cameras

  • bryan

    OIS is just a marketing term, xperia z5 is using lens shift where other like nokia / samsung / iphone is using sensor shift.

  • Gitarooman

    not surprise by that, because G4 still has advantage in theory in low light with OIS and F1.8 lens and S6 with a F1.9 and OIS lens.But I still think z5 could have done better than that would wait for the final product.

  • Prateek Bhanushali

    This was expected. With the Same Sensor size and 25MP, can give such results. But it isn’t meant to do that. SuperSampling will solve the Noise and Sharpness issue. This is much better result considering the specs and Colors are most accurate on Z5 !!!

  • ZeRo+

    Sony must be make sensor size 1 / 2.2 and put the expensive optical sistem, and not cheap again, (a sign of cheap optics, blurred edges in the picture) and increase the aperture to 1.8. It was then, at Sony would be a chance to beat Samsung, Lg and Apple, but in reality, as always,we very well know that Sony will lose them, and on MWC2016 will present new SGS7 LG G5, which will be increase the gap. Just tired for 4 years in a row to see neverending software problems ((
    Sony-Ericsson at the time, was the engine of mobile photography, but the current Sony, all destroyed and it seems that, forever.

  • ZeRo+

    F2.0 is a strange course of the company because now everyone is trying to increase Vivo Xshot in 2014 already had a 1.8 aperture

  • Mac

    This is bullsh!t! Even my Z1C make better videos than they make Z3 look like.

  • a.mubher

    The full not nitpicked comparison is here:
    http://www.phonearena.com/news/First-Xperia-Z5-vs-iPhone-6-Plus-vs-S6-vs-Z3-vs-G4-camera-samples-comparison_id73408

    In general Z5 has better contrast and color reproduction. G4 white balance is way off sometimes ( including the car picture but that sample above doesn’t show it ). Z5 is too sharp at times and S6 can be too soft.. but they are the best overall. the colors on the Z5 gives it the edge for me over S6 better small details. more realistic and vibrant.

  • adecvat

    Seems to be it not working with 4k video. Epic fail

    https://youtu.be/eeSmzZlXosc

  • mukul verma

    the guy who had taken this video, desnt know how to make video.

  • mixedfish

    The f1.8 on the G4’s 1/2.6″ sensor is smaller than the f2.0 on Z5’s 1/2.3″ sensor.

    They are not equal if the sensor size isn’t the same.

  • mixedfish

    What? OIS means lens shift. Opitcal Image Stabilization.

  • Alvin

    knew it. z5 is the best there to me. look at it, the s6 is so undersaturated just like what i’ve experienced it myself with red or pink coloured things… s6 are really good on hdr and greens though

  • Alvin

    yeah. made me embarrassed with my z3 even much much more that i want to dump this thing lol:D

    but yeah even z5 only has dis but has bionz and steadyshot.. but what they did is amazing they’re trying to optimise and increase the stabilisation just with dis but they did it like their phones are with ois.. which is cool.

    Yeah Japan brains are so so smart and brilliant…..unlike those………………..*oops

  • Alvin

    hope they’re improving… i can see “WORK HARD AND KICK SAMSUNG” in totoki’s head and i see “2016 IS OUR YEAR” in totoki’s eyes… hope we can see how sony give us some great news next year :)

  • Alvin

    yeah right ois this ois that… WHO NEEDS OIS THING WHEN THEY CAN BEAT THOSE OIS POWERED PHONES WITH THEIR OWN ALGORITHMS? just wait and see mate, on reviews, take my words:):):)

  • Alvin

    i’m also dead worry about it.. can’t wait to see the reviews though. i still can’t believe earlier hands ons like these because those are still a prototype/pre production units.

  • Alvin

    not megapixels we are talking about here… but the thing is the quality taken with the superior auto.. i don’t care if we have to use 3 mp, 5 mp, or 8 mp or even 50 mp, but if the quality is amazing, take my money please.

  • Alvin

    OH TIMEL TIMEL HONEY TIMEL TIMEL….

    But i know they’re on the track right now. but those people are still hypnotized by samsung and apple, especially samsung… there’s where how worried I am about Sony.. I hope their marketing this year and next year will be improved.

    Can’t wait for what’s next.

  • Alvin

    well i’ve viewed that already and don’t want to share it here because i still want to see rage of those idiots lol… especially those fake sony fanboys or samsung paid s*** (sorry for my words, i just hate them)…. but we’re talking about stabilisation here right? because in that video the s6 edge has more vibrant colours to be honest

  • Prateek Bhanushali

    I think we should wait for the final product to come Out before making any decisions. This might be the issue of Pre-Production Units….

  • Abhi

    It compensates for the natural tremor in your hands and allows shorter exposure times with reduced blur especially at night. I suggest you read what it actually does before hating it. You can always make a good camera better.

  • Alvin

    we’re talking about bionz and steadyshot vs ois here, mate.. not digital vs optical (which i can totally see the difference). :)

  • Svnjay

    If you download the original photos, the Z5 has lots of noise just like the Z3 while the other phones don’t have any. That’s my biggest issue with the picture quality.

  • Abhi

    :-)

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    Yes and I disappoint on this issues. Well maybe I don’t have to buy it and stay with my M5 and RX100 M2 for a long time :D

  • kido

    We dont even know if he turned steady shot on in the video

  • Musadiqkhan
  • Bennder

    So question is how strong hardware support is required for that stabilization and image processing? Can Sony bring some of that to older xperia flagships?

  • huh no.

  • Shubham Mutreja

    Z5 has best colors and dynamic range and excellent details but s6 gave noiseless pics and good color rproduction
    Maybe sony should use noise reduction?

    What was the resolution on Z5?

  • nfs2010

    S6 is 16mp & Z5 is 23mp. Of course, Z5 is gonna have more noise in indoor shot. That’s PA for you. They should have used 8mp mode here that uses downsampling.

  • speetasai

    Just download the original one from here http://www.phonearena.com/news/First-Xperia-Z5-vs-iPhone-6-Plus-vs-S6-vs-Z3-vs-G4-camera-samples-comparison_id73408

    Both G4 and S6 are on ISO100, Z5 is ISO200.

  • ZeRo+

    Where you see on Z5 samples, good dynamic range and excellent details??? No,really, where? Z5 has big problems with contrast (dark shadows), details… Blur now mean details, it something new…. New 23mp camera not feels like a new camera, because all the problems that were in the Sony cameras, they are still there, I do not see much cause for joy .. Only video and stabilization was significantly better, yes, but the picture has been the weak point of the Sony, so it remained.

  • Alvin

    yeah i agree! that colours on z5 is eye-popping, saturated, and natural even though i haven’t see that scene yet by myself, but that red is just so true. S6 has less noise, yes.. but it is undersaturated and really shows wrong colours. I don’t know what samsung did to make dxomark ranked them first… or at least they should test g4 first. g4 was the best that time (well i hope this time z5 is the first:D)

  • Mario Junior

    In my opinion the Z5 was only better in color. Already in other things, the G4 fared better.

    G4> S6> Z5

  • Mario Junior

    Sony Xperia Z5 Compact Premium is reportedly a Japan-only variant with 1080p display

    Google it!

  • Alvin

    for real?

    better they make the ultra version : Xperia Z5 Ultra Premium
    and make the premium version of the compact version of the premium : Xperia Z5 Premium Compact Premium

  • Alvin

    Sony is prepping an Xperia Z5 Compact Premium =>=>=>=>=> FOR JAPAN ONLY :”

    http://www.androidauthority.com/sony-xperia-z5-compact-premium-report-640042/
    and the baddest news (to me, because it will just be released in Japan) is…. it is not just with 4.6″ FHD Display, but also has 4GB RAM and 2900 mAh Battery

    if this will be released worldwide.. well i bet sony will have a money party in their offices.

    Awesome?
    Seriously?

    Most people will agree but its camera must much better than this

    It’s clear that until the sixth generation of Z series, Sony smartphones (especially flagship phones ) still stuck with the shitty auto mode, inefficient manual mode.

  • Timel

    Totally agree

    In that pic, Z5 is the best hell yeah!

  • Timel

    True

  • Gezati
  • Timel

    So true

    I have no idea what Sony is thinking or what happened with Sony… So speechless that their flagship smartphones still stuck with same old problem for 4 years, I mean the shitty “auto mode” the funniest joke is company like Samsung and LG can make better smartphone cameras than Sony… So funny indeed .

  • Matt

    expected with higher resolution sensor

  • Nawi

    LoL. still trolling and upvoted your own comments

    bye!

  • Well iam not sure he is trolling since auto mode is kind of shit though

  • Winter Soldier

    still z5 has noisy look but colours are great

    s6 and g4 great details

  • Nawi

    I don’t care right now. I’ll have time to worry about that…. if it is true

  • Alex Norris

    Sony engineers are so helpless that for so many years have not been able to increase the aperture to 1.8. Future Lg, and Galaxy, will be destroy Xperia Z5 so easy. And again, do not forget that Apple Iphone6+ comes will the new 12 megapixel camera, and the second generation of BBC Vivo Xshot 2

  • ZeRo+

    That’s what I fear, Alex…

  • arcu de triumf

    Z3 has bigger zoom in maybe that’s why it looks different than the Z3 footage and maybe the settings of course. With zoom in it’s harder to stabilize the image. But anyway Steady shot feature is a great job done by Sony along with slow motion. Practically you have a great video camera and effects in one place. The video sound is a little bit unsensitive though, the further low sounds don’t get recorded very well.

  • ZeRo+

    Red color on Z5 sample, IMHO looks very saturated, with higher contrast! Don`t think that Z5 shows correct colors

  • Shubham Mutreja

    dont feed trolls

  • Shubham Mutreja

    Down scaling the pic to 16 MP resolution the most of noise goes away!

  • Shubham Mutreja

    Hi!

    Why troll? Just because of an opinion that differs from some of Sony fanboys?

    That’s so funny …

    I’m Not give a fuck for company X, Y, Z, etc. I own a Z3c and I know the qualities and defects of the same, but even so I’m sucking the balls from Sony.

  • Filippo

    Anyone know where is the stagefright fix on the Z3C? Actually only three countries had it… why nobody talks about that?

  • insyt

    The red on the S6 definitely does not match the red of the new VW polos.

  • insyt

    The G4 is adding too much color/yellow. The S6 either nailed it or has too less color.

  • insyt

    The G4 is once again adding to much color/yellow. The S6 either nailed it or has too less color.

  • insyt

    Better floor shadows in favour of the Z5, better headlights in favour of the G4, else all look the same to me.

  • insyt

    Yeah I don’t get why they don’t include samples from proper high end cameras in these test.

    This is all great and dandy but there’s a fundamental flaw in everything about this phone. And that is, timing. Sony announcing a phone so early, only to release it in November makes no sense. By the time, the buzz is all about the phones with 820 Chipset and they soon start thereafter to show up. This phone with the dreaded (an now very old) 810 Chipset, selling for for a premium price, will instantly make no sense. And there goes Sony again immediately to release a Z5 + or Z6 to go with the flow. so, what’s the point of announcing this phone so early? Might as well announce the phone in November and sell it a couple of months later already with the new chipset. I have never seen a high and company so mismanaged as Sony’s mobile division.

    And the other point, that seems no one is talking about and it’s really the most important regarding the new camera, is to know or not if Sony finally implements RAW recording. Because if RAW is still not available, this is all more tragic for a high-end phone targeting photo quality and “with the best camera”.

  • MMElliot

    The Z5 showing DRAMATICALLY less detail and totally crushed black shadow areas.. scary! When all is mud, sure you can’t see the “grain”. The G4 has grain all over the place because there is detail, not just a black blob.

  • MMElliot

    The Sony has more pixels so the individual pixel size is actually smaller on the Sony.

  • MMElliot

    The issue here is the fact that these particular photos taken with this g4 has the wrong color balance. That’s all. That can be due to in camera setting, or another reason. I’ve seen hundreds of samples from the g4, and none of them is yellow, while all these are yellow. This is not how the phone usually takes pictures or in any way representative of how the colors come out out of the phone. Overall the g4 camera is far superior in every aspect.

  • ZeRo+

    Tricky move . You showed a little part crop of where red color changed it`s tone.) But I’ll tell you that, under the refraction of light, it has to change. Here’s an example of a red golf, where he has a purple hue in places refraction

    Look S6 with other Red Golf

  • ZeRo+

    This once again confirms that Sony camera needs more ISO for indoor, it`s not good. Aperture F2.0 is weak spot

  • ZeRo+

    do not waste your strength bro)

  • ZeRo+

    This guy talks right, except some guys ….

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    Your reply is unlogical…
    Those photos were taken from same angle, under same light conditions.
    You are just beating round the bush…

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    What should this shot tell us exactly? There is a red golf and z5, shot with s6 as much as color reproduction is concerned

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    I remember the days when xperia z2/z3 also provided most detail, with most grain….people bashed it for that grain.
    So which artefact do you actually prefer in low light? Grain or noise reduction?

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    The issue is that Z5 automode in good light conditions makes shots with better detail and color, and is best over G4 and certaily over S6. In low light conditions it now gives noise reduction artefacts giving less detail, whilst G4 gives more detail with more grain, which is better is a preference, but both shots are superb….
    But you certainly can make even a better lowlight shot in manual Z5 mode with more detail preserved, as you can do a better less yellow hue shot in manual of G4
    Either way, overall S6 loses to both above

  • a.mubher
  • a.mubher
  • ZeRo+

    What this should tell us .. maybe that not necessary to say that the red color and all colors are correct only from Z5. You Must have be there and see what was real. And you were not but you all taken conclusion, that Sony shows right colors.
    And i can say that new 23 mp. has better detail than predecessors like Z3. Because gain i see the same problems, with bad detalisation, blurring, and new problem – high contrast.
    That’s all.

  • ZeRo+

    Expert, look on your second sample,it’s not looks similar than on Z5 red ) http://vizitka24.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/wpid-2015-Volkswagen-Polo-2014-Auto-Show-Geneva-2016-6.jpg Other Red, right? And this red Golf shot, was taken on IFA! Other tones of red .

  • ZeRo+

    Yes, on this sample G4 has problem with WB

  • insyt

    True. Looks like the perfect smartphone might be difficult to achieve but the Z5 seems to good at a lot of things, and based on these pictures it slightly edges out the S6 which overall is a great camera as well. Other factors will need to be looked at when choosing between the Z5 and S6. Waterproofing, an SD card slot, great battery life and the compact version make the Z5 a clear winner to me. The potential of quicker and more updates thanks to near stock Android helps as well.

  • a.mubher

    Honestly. Stop being so dense. What was that photo taken with? S6 apparently? So you you want Z5 picture to look like S6 picture? How is that supposed to support your bias?

    Anyways. My point is that purple hue doesn’t happen on red indoors without blue lights ( like in one of your picture) it can happen under sunlight or with blue reflections. And of course color change due to light and surroundings.. so all reds will not appear to be the same… but not to the point where red turn into pink…

  • insyt

    Knowing VW’s red isn’t difficult. There are tons on the road and in show rooms. But plants, passing a judgement on those without samples from a proper camera will be difficult.

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    You keep stalling on lowlight photo artefacts. What camera adds or removes in those is a personal preference. But in all other photos with enough light Z5 proved to have best focus, best whitebalance control, best detail ( to be fair, G4 caught more detail in some parts, but overall z5 did better), best contrast, and IMO best color reproduction
    You did analyze other compare shots from phonearena there didnt you?

  • Timel

    S6 camera is still the best and overall G4 camera is great,
    However now it’s clear that Z5 camera still can’t beat them.

    Why Sony? Why?

  • Timel

    “Honestly. Stop being so dense. What was that photo taken with? S6 apparently? So you you want Z5 picture to look like S6 picture? How is that supposed to support your bias?”

    His bias? really?
    All I see there’re only Sony fanboys here that always blind and biased and never try to accept the fact

    The point is ZeRO+ just wanna tell you guys that which smartphone camera has the most accurate colours in real world situations and it’s not Z5 camera, S6 is clearly the winner here, S6 camera also has excellent details and noiseless pictures

    So I think some fanboys here need to stop dancing around the subject and accept the fact than Z5 camera is worse than S6 and G4. C’mon Sony need to improve the quality of their smartphone camera seriously and if you guys are real Sony fans you must tell Sony about this problem rather than keep defending Sony like this.

  • Timel

    Trust me, some Sony fanboys is much worse than trolls.

  • a.mubher

    Oh the infamous Timel. Siding with him tells much about his argument xD
    So, his “real world situations” without exception has blue reflections on the car , which affect the color to appear purple.. true.

    IFA car situation is different than those situations. It is indoor with not blue reflection on it.

    It is amazing how the eye can’t tell the difference between red and purple when the mind is closed upon itself… such as yours xD

  • Sony’s JPEG algorithm engine always smear out details (Especially in the Z3).
    2 very important aspect in camera phone these days is the sharpness and dynamic range the sensor can capture and reproduce. Contrast and saturation can be easily recovered if both sharpness and dynamic range is good, else you have no significant data leverage~

  • the Z5’s details and sharpness are smudged. Look at the tire patterns and the head lamps. Z5 is a total mess~

  • BEN66

  • ZeRo+

    Frankly, you’re being stubborn, you simply only deceive yourself, but not me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=16&v=uDqiJ_jpct4

  • Timel

    Ops! The great proof is here hahahahahaha
    Now I’m just wondering what those blind and biased fanboys gonna say next…

    P.s. This image also proved that Z5 really did the very great job about video recording !

  • Timel

    LOL

  • Timel

    It’s Japan exclusive

  • ZeRo+

    We have to thank Sony for nice video recording, they really worked! Now we know exactly what shade of red has Golf)))

  • a.mubher

    This following video is taken with an actual pro video camera, more accurate and natural than any smartphone will ever be. Look at the car in the background. Now what?
    If your video prove anything it proves that video recording on the Z5 is on the cold side when it comes to colors. Nothing can be adjusted in manual mode hopefully

    Say what you want about other people who disagree with you son. It only exposes how narrow your mind is.

  • RoberMC

    Seriously, which one wins here is a matter of personal taste, and even if one of them were objectively better then the others, it is by a really tight, tight, margin.

    We are talking about smartphones here, which do a lot of more things, and have a lot more to offer, people only use the camera in their smartphones 5% of the time, the rest of the time they are calling, playing, web-surfing, texting, etc… and overall the Z5 is the most complete of the contendants. It has a top camera, IP68, powerful soc, sdcard, great battery, great support from the manufacturer, it is gorgeous, etc.

    You guys sometimes seems to be suffering from OCD (Obsessive–compulsive disorder), with all this camera ranting and pixel counting.

  • RoberMC

    Meh, 12MP camera is embarasingly low for proper zooming or cropping.

  • ZeRo+

    How about this……Right and Left side
    And red not so bright like it shows Z5
    Like we can seen all cameras show differently tones, and this another example of red shade.

  • a.mubher

    Also depends on your screen. I tired different screen and some pictures look like pure pink (S6). This is getting pointless really. Certainly more comparison are coming in the future. Wait and see, I’d say.

  • ZeRo+

    It’s not screen problem, it`s different lighting in exhibition pavilion. It is changing and this produced different shades, that’s all. 0:50 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0BZVSABcLy8

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    You Are either dumb or deliberatly biased to make such a nonsense comment, after my example comparisson of that flower bush and stone floor details, contrast and color reproduction…
    I can see you only cling to that red VW photo for your claims. That comment you keep trying to push on readers about purple being more real color of VW than the red is….such a beautiful ignorance of logic.

  • Vjekoslav Andric

    Dream on fanboy, and keep cluttering the thread with your nonsense comments.Even if you KNOW you are not telling the truth
