However, there are devices where OTA will not work, we usually inform about it on the product page, in the "ROM" section.

NFC will most likely work on the most of the devices bought on our website.

Professional technology from Alpha cameras

The Xperia 1 IV was co-developed with the engineers behind the latest Alpha 1 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. And just as Alpha photographers expect the same performance in any lens, so the Xperia 1 IV offers the same AF capabilities across all its lenses. 

Real-time Eye AF on all lenses

Real-time Eye AF on all lenses 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. 

Up to 20fps AF/AE HDR burst shooting, whichever lens you choose

The Xperia 1 IV offers the same incredibly fast performance across all lenses. Whichever one you choose, you can capture up to 20fps continuous burst shooting, complete with autofocus and auto exposure. And you can take stunning images in any lighting conditions with HDR (High Dynamic Range) for the richest colour and contrast.

What makes the Xperia 1 IV so fast?

Three key features contribute to the breathtaking speed of the Xperia 1 IV camera – a 120fps read-out sensor, up to 60fps AF/AE calculations, and AI subject detection.

120fps read-out sensor on all lenses

All the image sensors on the Xperia 1 IV boast an incredible read-out speed of up 120 frames per second, so you get the same fast performance with every lens.

Real-time Tracking on all lenses

When you're trying to photograph a subject that won't stay still, a little assistance is always welcome – so the Xperia 1 IV features Real-time Tracking on all lenses. 

Keep fast-moving subjects in focus

Now you can keep the most challenging moving subjects in precise focus. Using AI and a 3D iToF sensor to measure distance, Real-time Tracking can accurately detect and focus on a subject, then keep on tracking it even if it temporarily moves outside the frame. To specify your subject, simply touch it on the Xperia 1 IV display. It works for all lenses. 

  • Fast-moving subjects

With true 85-125mm optical zoom, the Xperia 1 IV offers images free of digital degradation between 85mm-125mm. Combined with optical stabilisation and Real-time Eye AF and tracking, it's ideal for portraits with optical bokeh.
