After the fabulous review and recognition by industry experts, the Sony Xperia Z5 camera module will now get its first update. As promised at the launch at IFA 2015, Sony Mobile has started rolling-out its revamped camera app for the Xperia Z5 range of smartphones.

“The world’s best camera in a smartphone just got better”, said Sony in a press release.

The Camera 2.0.0 update will include a fresh user interface and new features that will help users take even better looking photos. Simple touch, swipes (shown in video below) and customisable on-screen sliders will make the camera apps even more accessible, further enriching the user interface. Now, the friendlier UI has got a more minimalistic look.

“We’ve focused on practicality, so you can now simply swipe to switch between the main camera modes; Superior Auto, Manual, Video and Xperia Camera apps”, confirms Anthony Devenish, PR Manager at Sony.

The Xperia Z5 range has already been certified as having the “best mobile photo and video scores to date” by DxOMark, a French imaging firm specializing in mobile phone cameras. The software update is applicable to Xperia Z5, Xperia Z5 Compact and Xperia Z5 Premium. The roll-out will take some time to reach all users. It may take even longer to reach carrier branded handsets in some regions.

Sony’s new IMX300 sensor, which can be found in Xperia Z5 series, sports a 192-point hybrid autofocus system that provides the fastest focusing time (0.03 seconds). The commendable 23 MP primary camera can capture images with resolution of 5520 x 4120 pixels and is capable of video recording at 2160 pixels per 30 frames per second (fps); 1080p per 60fps and 720p per 120fps. The camera unit also sports LED flash, phase-detection autofocus with touch and panorama stitch.
