This is new to the market aimed at professional photography.

Expensive.

 

Best features will be the cameras and the 4K HD display on the handset. I haven't seen any reviews or feedback on it but I imagine this is signficantly better than most camera phones on the market currently.

 

With so mucb media hype directed at iPhone it will be nice to see a seasoned photographer bring proper tools and no gimmicks to the market. Even though Huawei and Nokia use great lenses; I think Samsung utilise Sony lenses also.

 

If I could afford this, I may well consider this due to the great screen too.

Its an over priced phone and has some flaws but is a good first attempt at a proper Pro Phone aimed at replacing Monitors for Pro Photographers, and most Pro Togs, I know wouldn't use a phone for photos... 

 

Also £2299.00 ouch

 

There is a good review here:

Same screen as Xperia 1iii, same remote camera display software too.

Only difference is that 1" sensor which beats the crud out of all other sensors.

I did read a bit more about it. Although trying to avoid youtube sponsored influencer videos to be honest.  Maybe I am fussy but a dedicated dslr or mirrorless camera is the probably best way to go.

I watched the video and found the information useful. Summary iPhone 13 Pro is not bad at photography although in some key areas the Sony wins out. Let's hope they improve on this formula and give people more technology options when it comes to recording and shooting images.

 

I have been playing around with my camera. The zoom on the s21 is usable up to 50x in my opinion. Macro shots once you get the hang of it are also OK.

 

The biggest problem with companies like Apple and Samsung are their products still need to cater for gen z whom don't care about 30 second exposures.

I would never and haven't ever bought smartphones on the basis of the camera. Although the LG G4 laser focus feature was a great addition. 

 

I'm not a pro blogger or anything so don't really need the protools. Although I would consider the Sony pro phones for portability as well as the communication side of things; if I ever did become a professional nerd.

Old pro, 

Based on the 1ii .

I think this is gonna be a yearly thing now.

The 1 series will have a pro version which follows later.

Considering the 1iii was £1,200 roughly, the pro-I is far better priced than its pro line predecessor
