Sony Xperia Z Able to Take 999 Pictures in 68 Seconds

By - Source: Xperia Blog | B 19 comments

Sony's Burst Mode can take unlimited number of images at 10 FPS.

Sony's Burst Mode for the Xperia Z, which it says allows users to take an unlimited number of images at 10 frames per second with a 9-megapixel resolution, is able to take 999 pictures in 68 seconds.

The smartphone itself sports a 5-inch full HD screen that produces a pixel density of 441 PPI, accompanied by a 13.1-megapixel Exmor RS camera situated on the device's rear.

Sony's Xperia Z also features a microSD card slot and an HDMI port, with the device powered by a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, as well as 2 GB of RAM. It'll launch with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, with an upgraded version of Google's platform due soon after.

The handset, which will form a lineup alongside the Xperia Tablet Z, is due for a worldwide launch during 2013's Q1. For more on the smartphone, visit our CES hands-on impressions.

    Who would ever utilize such a feature? Would you not just take a video and edit frame by frame if you wanted? Think of all the pictures that you'd have to go through in your gallery...

    Marketing kills me sometimes. Actually, most of the time.

    Seems like marketing jargon thats saying we have a camera thats not fast enough to take movies at any reasonable FPS so we are just going to sell it as a "fast picture taker".

    Maths is great!
    10 fps * 68 sec = 680 pictures, not 999...
    so if we are taking pictures at a lower resolution to achieve 14.69 fps then what resolution is it?

    This just in, every 60 seconds is one minute.

    I have 6fps on my DSLR and it's terrible to even go through 20 frames in a sequence to find the best one. 999 nearly identical photos, awesome, now just hit select all and delete because you are never going to want to go through them.

    they said that i takes 10 fps but the video is just showing that it can go beyond that

    14 FPS with auto focus and metering on every shot???

    No.

    So you can take 1,000 photos of something that isn't moving, in light that isn't changing... Ie, 1,000 photos that are exactly the same.

    Although I like the capabilties, the demonstration video failed to know my socks of. At least some movement of a wind up toy would have produced some different photos. Taking a bunch of shots of a well lit, non moving object doesn't impress. How does it stand up in low light?

    these are 9mp pictures, now lets look at a potential use.
    your kid is playing a sport, and you want to take photos of the best moment
    well, you got about a 6 second window for the best moments, so lets assume you already have everything focused.
    you shoot for 6 seconds and have about 100 potential pictures.

    now with what you said, 1080p... how many cameras have you seen that can take a decent 1080p video? much less a phone that can? by some merical phones can take a half way decent picture, this one can take them fast.

    and 1080p is under 3mp... and from what i understand, 3mp is the bare minimum you need for a 3 by 4 print to not see the pixles.

    you need more if you want to take a larger print, but i also believe that 8mp is fine for a single 8 by 11 is i remember correctly.

    so there, just gave you a real reason you want to use this over going through a 1080p video...

    o, and lets not forget... most normal people don't even know how to take a screenshot on their computer, much less how to capture a single frame of video.

    ignorant people are going to be ignorant, as someone pointed out you get higher then 1080p pictures. If you are retarded enough to do it for 1 whole minute you deserv the head ache of sorting tru a couple of hundred pictures.

    1920x1080= 2 million pixels
