ISO 51200 for photos and 12,800 for movies. Such a possibility is to have a camera in a new Sony smartphone. Will the new phone revolutionize the market?

During a press conference at the MWC trade fair there was information about the new Sony sensor. The producer is known for creating great cameras. An example is the new Sony A7 III. In addition, Sony also manufactures matrices for smartphones – it currently has a large part of this market in its hands . Its matrices can be found in the devices of many more and less known producers. Characteristic of Sony cameras is that they cope well with high ISO. A7S devices are particularly known from this. We can use ISO in the order of several thousand and the picture is still good. In the case of smartphones, we rarely get an ISO sensitivity of more than 6,400 . Now, however, it will change. Sony has created a new sensor that can redefine smartphone photography.

What does the new Sony matrix offer?

The new "dual-camera" that Sony has developed, in conjunction with the premiere sensor, is to introduce a new, higher sensitivity to smartphones. In the case of ISO shooting, it will amount to 51200 . This is a value we still can not find in many cameras, not to mention smartphones. However, for film applications, the ISO value will amount to 12,800. This is to ensure the possibility of taking pictures in worse lighting conditions, and the photographs are to be free from noise. As we know, currently the manufacturers in the case of cameras in smartphones are fighting mainly on the brightness of the lens and today it is no surprise that the aperture value at f / 1.7. If we add a high sensitivity, which even if you lift it to a higher value will provide a fairly clean picture, then smartphone photographs will become even better . Well, if we are talking about the use of larger matrices, and thus a minimum of 1 / 2.3 inches (such as in compacts), then in fact smartphones will replace cameras up to 1000 zlotys.

During the conference, the new sensor was presented live and the effects look really good, as you can see in the pictures above. By the way, we found out that the ISO for the human eye is only … 1600.

What photo smartphone?

More and more often we meet with smartphones, which one of the strongest advantages is the camera. Manufacturers are putting more and more work into photographic units in their models. Sony with its matrixes offers smartphones with large photographic possibilities. However, it is not the smartphone of this producer that is the most often chosen for photos. Most people consider Samsung models to be the best smartphones to take photos. Popularity is confirmed by DxOMark tests , which examine how a smartphone deals in terms of photos. As it turns out, now the Samsung Galaxy S9 + wins in this field, which in the DxOMark test received as much as 104 points.
