    Moving objects

    Arrow left Xperia XZ1 support overview

    When taking photos and recording videos of moving objects, timing is important for good results.

    Predictive Capture automatically takes photos the instant an object enters the camera frame, before you press a button. Object tracking can track a moving object automatically.

    Use Burst shot to find the best photo from a burst of images.

    When recording videos, you can use SteadyShot™ to compensate for camera movements and steady the frame.

    Capturing moving objects

    • Try not to follow the object. Instead, find a position where the object has to pass in front of you.
    • Consider changing the exposure to a faster shutter speed or a higher ISO to freeze motion.

    1. When using the main camera, tap Settings icon.
    2. Tap Predictive Capture > Auto.
    3. Close the settings menu. The setting is saved.
    4. Press the camera key or tap the shutter button to take a photo.
    5. Tap the thumbnail to view the result. Two to four photos are saved depending on the movement of the object. Predictive Capture can also detect unexpected smiles.
