Xperia Z5_Maddie MoateSony Mobile has released a near 7-minute video showcasing all that the Xperia Z5 has to offer. The video shows presenter Maddie Moate putting the camera to the test in a night in Berlin. It’s an interesting video, covering much of the technology that the camera offers as well a selection of sample photos from the camera.

The video includes a ride in a bumpy Trabi (Trabant) car to test both the SteadyShot Intelligent Active Mode and 0.03s hybrid autofocus. Then the 5x Clear image zoom is tested at the top of a tower, along with the ‘Firework’ and ‘Timeshift Burst’ camera modes during a firework display. There are also some low-light samples from the streets of Berlin using Superior Auto mode.

This is a Sony production, so don’t be surprised to see the Xperia Z5 painted in positive light, but the samples look good. We hope Sony wouldn’t ‘doctor’ these, although we wouldn’t be surprised if a professional took the images rather than Ms Moate. For example, in the tower when testing the clear image zoom, the picture was snapped in landscape, but the sample is shown in portrait. Either way, it’s not a big deal as long as the samples are an accurate representation of what the Xperia Z5 can achieve.

Thanks Ben and Waleed!
