Alpha 7SII can shot at night 30 frames per second @P30/5II single photo level :)
And that is a quality.

P30 series generally oversharpens a lot in low light if you don't use night mode, whereas P40 series doesn't. The latter captures much wider dynamic range, deals better with colour fringing and produces noiseless images in most conditions, too.

If you compared one FF sensor with let say, a phone with 1/1.5", huge differences can be seen just by naked eyes, evenmore when you pixel peep on a monitor. But if the same photographer took same photo on both device, edited both by his own style, print on A3 paper. Trust me, even if you pixel peeping both A3 size printed image, thats when differences hard to tell (because of fixed paper size DPI & res). At least on a specific scene, it is (minus other features advantage on FF camera).

Plus 10 years ago, digital compact camera sensor size are what today's smartphone camera sensor size is. Prices of smartphone is even crazier, spiking each year, one of the excuses are to brag which camera are the better one.

Of course actual camera with bigger sensor & high quality lens are the better one. No two words about it. But are today's smartphone camera worth to be argued about? Yes, especially here, in this website & as long as you keep it just between smartphones. This is a dedicated smartphone website anyway.

Arguing about the camera on a mobile phone is really pointless. Images off any phone are great to be displayed on the small screen but whenever you need to do something to them in post and apply them in some comp the lack of data shows through. Even printing them in photo size is arguable as that digital signature shows up.

I ll go for Xperia 1 m3

Anonymous, 26 Jun 2021That's the definition of average.Yes, but you get best Autofocus in class (fastes sensor on market), nice pro app, shutter button +4K HDR OLED. If you dont like it is okay. I really dont care ;)

LucasN82, 25 Jun 2021It's the same level than other top flagships on market. That's the definition of average.

I wish Sony could release their phones earlier. August is too late. All the other companies are preparing to release their next phone by now and Sony will be a year behind from everyone else.

Even dxomark rates p40 pro higher than p30 for a reason

P mode of Photo Pro lets you turn HDR or DRO on while leaving all rest on auto settings.
Haters are running out of excuses.

LMAO.

The one that is available for 850 euros must be the base 8gb/128gb variant.

I also got two years warranty from Giztop.
Other sites like TradingShenzen and WondaMobile, that the anonymous guy mentioned are offering only one year warranty.
