Cinema Pro is a premium video recording feature, co-developed with Sony’s cinema camera engineers and exclusive to the Xperia 1 and Xperia 5. It delivers some of the functionality and feel of a professional cinema camera. This includes a choice of cinematic frame rates and resolutions, as well as preset Looks that bring out the mood and expression you are aiming for when shooting a scene. Cinema Pro lets you shoot and store your clips in projects, making it easy to keep consistency in settings and Looks between takes.
At launch, the Xperia 5 features Cinema Pro with the following improvements:
- Video editing - trim and merge clips.
- Focus pull (smooth shift between two selected focus depths).
- Stereo audio meter and audio level adjustment.
- Increased flexibility in project handling.
- A wider selection of viewfinder frame lines.
- Auto White Balance lock.
- Clip flagging while recording.
- Updated UI layout resembling that of Sony VENICE professional cinematic cameras.
