Xperia Z2 from Sony
Equipped with a 4K camcorder and a 20.7 MP camera, Xperia Z2 from Sony is just what budding filmmakers and photographers need to ensure their low budget shoots get the high quality treatment.
Whether it’s due to Sony’s award-winning G Lens or Intelligent BIONZ™ for mobile image-processing engine, or perhaps the long list of pre-installed Sony camera apps, such as the cool Timeshift video, which captures high speed clips at 120 frames per second and has the ability to select and slow down one or multiple sections of your clip, there’s never been a better time to document your ideas and bring those experiences to life.
Xperia Z2 not only offers market-leading 4K video capture, but just hook it up to a TV and you can zoom in on the action while it’s playing, even if you don’t have a UHD television. If you’re not up for shooting a potential classic, you can watch a couple on the go, instead. Filled with movie bundles, including Captain Phillips, you’ve always got a great film experience at the ready with Xperia Z2.
