Capturing true colours without the risk of over-saturation.

From still pictures and low-resolution videos to high-resolution movies, Sony’s unique image software engine analyses each image to optimise colours, sharpness and contrast, as well as reduce noise. The super resolution function reproduces missing pixels, for spectacular clarity and astonishing detail – bringing your favourite moments closer to Full HD quality.

The Xperia Z2 combines small 4K# video capture with a large 1.1 cm 20.7 MP Exmor RS™ for mobile image sensor, Sony’s award-winning G Lens and the intelligent BIONZ™ for mobile image-processing engine. This unique combination means the Xperia Z2 has the same quality and performance as a real compact digital camera. The result is images that are delivered with a superior sharpness, clarity and brightness – always.

Sony’s camera technologies combine to bring you detailed bright shots – even in challenging low-light conditions. The Exmor RS™ for mobile image sensor is an evolution of our Sony image sensor technology, with a next-generation BSI light sensor. It reduces picture noise while maintaining high resolution with a bright F2.0 Sony G lens, high sensitivity Exmor RS™ for mobile and BIONZ™ for mobile’s NR, pixel binning and by-pixel super resolution technologies. And with Superior Auto, it all happens automatically – no need to fiddle around with complicated settings.

Are you living life in the fast lane? Just keep moving – with the best camera phone at hand, your pictures will always come out sharp. The bright F2.0 lens and high sensitivity sensor enable you to take photos with a higher shutter speed. The BIONZ™ for mobile-image processing engine has Motion Detection – it chooses a higher shutter speed to capture blur-free images when your subject is moving. The Superior Auto mode does all the hard work for you.
