Tiffany Nguyen (@tiffpenguin) is a Los Angeles-based travel photographer and a member of the Alpha Collective. She’s traveled the world creating content on-the-go with her Sony gear, and she recently took an Xperia near the Sierra Nevada. “I took the Sony Xperia 1 IV to Alabama Hills in California,” she says. “I created a video about my weekend exploring the different areas of Alabama Hills and captured a variety of different photos of the unique landscapes in the area.” Watch the video below and keep reading as she shares more photos and her thoughts on creating content with the Sony Xperia 1 IV.
“The Xperia is the perfect tool for any content creator. Whether your focus is on photography or videography, this phone can do it all.” – Tiffany Nguyen of the Alpha Collective
Photo & Video Workflows, Simplified
While Nguyen is traveling, she prefers to spend as much time as possible enjoying the moment and living in the present to really soak in the scene. In order to do this, she is always looking for new ways to make her workflow even more efficient, a task she found easy with the Xperia 1 IV. “The features I found most useful for my specific shooting style and workflow were the trio of lenses that give me the ability to capture a wider range of diverse content, 4K 120fps for slow-motion video recording, and Real-time Eye AF plus Real-time tracking with every lens. These features have been absolute game changers for me and have opened up so many new possibilities for creating unique content.”
A creator of both photo and video content, Nguyen used the phone to test its performance for both. “The image and video quality on this phone is better than ever and I was blown away by the latitude I had to edit both photos and videos,” she says. “The Xperia 1 IV definitely surpassed my expectations with its performance and how well it fits in with my shooting style and improves my workflow when I’m on the go.”

She continues, “My favorite thing about the Xperia 1 IV is that I’m able to capture high quality content with a device I have in my pocket while still enjoying the present moment. I never have to worry about sacrificing image and video quality and can keep my pack as minimal as possible thanks to the compact and lightweight nature of the phone.”
A Powerful Addition To Your Sony Kit
Tiffany has used a variety of Sony Alpha cameras and Sony lenses for content creation, and she says the Xperia 1 IV is the perfect addition to her regular photo and video kit. “It’s a powerful piece of equipment that will help me to create unique content and speed up my workflow.” Its powerful performance isn’t the only thing she loves – the lightweight and small form factor is perfect for what she does. She can take it on hikes and it allows her to shoot in RAW with full manual capabilities, all in a device that fits in her pocket.

“The Xperia is the perfect tool for any content creator,” Nguyen says. “Whether your focus is on photography or videography, this phone can do it all. It fits in seamlessly if you already shoot with the Sony Alpha system thanks to the familiar interface. Whether you’re a beginner with no photography background or a professional that’s looking to step up their content creation game, it’s super easy to use and is packed with features that will help you create incredible content on the go.”
