Telling a story through photography relies on you being able to capture pivotal moments, exactly as they happen. It’s therefore essential for a great smartphone to react quickly. That’s exactly what Xperia Z5 offers with the world’s fastest autofocus* – 0.03 seconds to be precise.

This month, we decided to put Xperia Z5’s autofocus to the test, to show you just how impressive it really is. And what better way to do so than with a series of entertaining challenges?

#ChallengeZ5 kicked off when we photographed a floating dancer (blink and you’ll miss it) before moving on to a crazy Hollywood car stunt. The images came out beautifully and to show you how we did it, we filmed the whole thing in 4K on Xperia Z5.

To make things even more exciting, we want you to get involved.

Also make sure you follow #ChallengeZ5 and tweet us the craziest thing you’d challenge Xperia Z5 to capture. We might even put it to the test…

You can also follow us on Instagram and Facebook to see all the excitement as it develops.
