Sony Xperia XA2 (2020)
Photo Gallery

Jim Carter, 2020-02-07

Here are a few photos that I took with the Sony Xperia XA2 Pioneer. This camera has steroidal resolution, The full size images are web-unfriendly at 5984x3376px (stock) or 5520x4144px (OpenCamera), and by default they are typically compressed (JPEG) to 11MiB (16%, stock) or 3.4MiB (4.9%, JPEG quality setting of 75%, OpenCamera). Aggressiveness of compression can be adjusted. Normally I would resize them to 1024x768px, but the point here is to let people assess the image quality. Even so, to reduce server-client load I have cropped these images to keep just the most relevant parts. They were exported as JPEG with 75% quality level. But I didn't change the resolution. Click on each thumbnail image to see the full-size version, in which you will need to use your browser's scrollbars to see the whole image.
