With the Xperia 5, you’re able to track the action with continuous burst shooting at up to 10 fps AF/AE tracking (Auto Focus and Auto Exposure) and the Xperia 5 can also make increased AF/AE calculations at up to 30fps allowing you to capture moving subjects with precision focus. Plus, photography advice is built-in along with a Cinema Pro mode so you can create multiple projects with different settings as well as adjust white balance, manual focus and audio recording levels. You can also trim individual clips/merge them together and access look colour management pre-sets to give your video footage specific cinematic looks. Video is captured in 4K HDR and you have access to 24fps settings. 

Low light images are possible thanks to a bright f/1.6 aperture, 1.4μm pixel pitch, a Dual Photo Diode image sensor and RAW noise reduction technology.
