Marketing InformationThe quality and performance of a compact digital camera

Xperia Z1 is built with the very same components as Sony's compact digital cameras meaning it really is the best smartphone for capturing images. Xperia Z1 combines a large 1/2.3" 20.7MP Exmor RS™ for mobile image sensor, Sony's award-winning G Lens and intelligent BIONZ™ for mobile image processing engine. We've also included Superior Auto, allowing you to get the best from these technologies without having to worry about camera settings. The result? The most stellar pictures you can imagine. And thanks to SteadyShot™, you can shoot beautifully smooth and stable videos too.
