Once you’ve decided the length of the clip, just select the photos or videos together with the music, and Video Creator will do the hard work so a final file is ready in about a minute. Even people who have no video editing experience can easily create original clips worthy of sharing on social media. You can also manually set your own preferences, such as clip adjustments and filter processing based on the creative look you are after.

Sony also equipped a dedicated voice recording mic on the device for prioritising the voice of the person you are recording and can be clearly picked up despite of other voices and environmental sounds in the surroundings.
