Sony Xperia Pro-I is the PERFECT smartphone for photography and video!

As expected, Sony today unveiled its latest high-end smartphone, the Sony Xperia Pro-I. This is the first smartphone with a 1″-inch photo sensor to be released outside of Japan.

First of all, it’s important to get the obvious roadblock out of the way for this smartphone to be a global phenomenon, its price. Following in the footsteps of its predecessor, the Xperia Pro-I also arrives at a price that can hardly be considered affordable: €1,799.

In addition, if you have some change in your pocket after buying the new top of the range, you can still invest in Vlog Monitor (€ 120) and the protective cover necessary to use this monitor (€.100).

Price out of the way, let’s see the wonders that the Sony Xperia Pro-I brings us.

As expected, they made a point of pointing out that the sensor was “ optimized for smartphone.”
