In a world of ever larger smartphones, the Xperia 5 III shows there is another way. Boasting 5G speed, powerful performance and impressive battery life, it packs the latest Sony camera, display, sound and gaming technologies into a compact design that's easy to use one-handed.
The Xperia 5 III was co-developed with the engineers behind the latest Alpha 9 series cameras, renowned for their industry-leading autofocus technology, and with input from professional photographers, who helped tune the technology and refine the photographic experience and results. Key features include fast AF in all three cameras, plus object tracking technology to maintain sharp focus on moving subjects.
ZEISS optics calibrated specifically for your Xperia smartphone. The ZEISS T* coating contributes to exquisite rendering and contrast by reducing reflections.
Expand your creative possibilities with four versatile lenses in a triple camera and fast, accurate AF across all cameras. Thanks to Dual PDAF sensors, Continuous AF keeps focus on moving subjects, while Sony's unique telephoto system supports fast AF even at extended focal lengths.
An optical telephoto lens up to 105mm with fast AF lets you capture moving subjects even at distance. Crucially, the two focal lengths are included in one telephoto module, complete with Dual PDAF sensors. So when you switch between 70mm and 105mm, the focal lens unit and the AF lens unit work in unison to focus fast.
With four versatile lens options, the Xperia 5 III puts a huge variety of shots within your reach.
16mm - landscape
24mm - wide-angle, moving subject
70mm - portrait
105mm - animal, moving
16mm - landscape
Now you can keep fast-moving subjects in sharp focus even if they temporarily move out of sight. Simply specify the subject you want to stay focused on by touching it on the display, and let object tracking do the rest.
The Xperia 5 III makes it easy to capture striking images with artistic bokeh effects, adding another layer of creativity to your photography.
Real-time Eye AF lets you take stunning portraits, whether you're photographing people or animals. Even if your subject is on the move or one eye is covered, you'll capture memorable images full of energy and expression.
Burst shooting at up to 20fps and low light noise reduction lets you take pictures you never thought possible with a smartphone.
Using continuous shooting in a low light situation? Thanks to BIONZ X™ for mobile engine, the Xperia 5 III produces images with less noise than its predecessor when using burst mode in low light.
- Burst mode with noise reduction
- Up to 20fps AF/AE burst shooting
