This is a long term test of the Sony Xperia Pro using it as a professional video tool. This means as an on camera monitor using the HDMI input and for doing live streams directly from it. I don't cover any of the phone features, which are very good especially the camera system, because I wanted to keep this video focused on the unique features that make this a very different phone from everything else out there.
This is not a review as I was paid by Sony to front their launch campaign outside of the USA a couple of months ago. I never make sponsored videos or endorse products that I wouldn't use or highly rate. So of course a lot of the video is about the stuff I like but I don't ignore the things that need to be improve which I go over.
The on camera shots of me within the phone where almost all shot with the Sony a1 in 8K to give me the ability to do the zooming in post. The beauty shots are all shot with the Sony A7S III as are the BTS of the shots in Richmond. The shots of me in London with lockdown hair for the Sony promo were shot with the Sony FX9 and the gimbal shots with the Sony A7S III. This gear and the rest are listed in the affiliate links below.
