The camera technologies in the new Xperia X series give you a front seat to all the action. The 23 MP camera on Xperia X Performance with Quick Launch is supposedly Sony Mobile’s fastest and smartest yet, with the all-new Predictive Hybrid Autofocus in both Xperia X Performance and Xperia X developed in collaboration with Sony Alpha camera engineers that tracks your subject and predicts its next move so you can automatically capture action shots in the sharpest detail, free of blur.

The camera delivers a launch to capture speed of 0.6 seconds at the press of the dedicated camera button. Users won’t have to worry about capturing moments that are blurry thanks to Sony’s exclusive SteadyShot technology which allows you to shoot clear and steady videos on-the-go and capture smoother videos than ever before without any “shaky cam” effects.
