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. Just as Alpha photographers expect the same performance in any lens, so the Xperia 1 IV offers the same AF capabilities3 across all its lenses1.

Real-Time Eye AF on all lenses1

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.

Real-time Tracking3 on all lenses1
