Infographic: How fast is 0.03 seconds?

Smartphone photography, as other posts here over the last few days have proved, is becoming an art form in its own right. Mobile cameras let photographers create images with a real sense of narrative without affecting the scene they are capturing in the way a larger camera would. These images rely heavily on capturing an exact moment when the story is at its strongest – so it’s crucial for a great smartphone camera to react quickly. That’s why we created the world’s fastest autofocus in a leading smartphone*, allowing the Xperia Z5 series cameras to react in a staggering 0.03 seconds. But how fast is that?

* Based on the results of technical testing the speed of autofocus of Sony’s Xperia™ Z5 Compact and Xperia™ Z5 smartphones with Apple iPhone 6, Apple iPhone 6 Plus, HTC One M9, LG G4, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Samsung Galaxy S6 (being the “Leading Smartphones” defined by Strategy Analytics as the top six flagship devices according to shelf share in 2015). Research was conducted by Strategy Analytics between 5-6th August 2015. For more information, go to:
