The Sony ZV-1F Vlogging Camera is a pocket-sized camera with a large 1" sensor and a 20mm-equivalent wide-angle lens that is specifically made for vloggers and online content creators.
With the camera, you can take a group selfie with a wide-angle view of the surrounding landscape and include everyone in the picture, even from a distance. The lens captures a wider field of view than the human eye, allowing you to take pictures both inside and outside with breathtaking depth and perspective.
The camera is designed to be portable and lightweight so you can easily capture daily life and get content on the go. The ZV-1F caters to those who value the camera's unique Product Showcase setting, background Defocus function, real-time Eye AF (autofocus), Face Priority AE (auto-exposure), as well as a new touchscreen interface, making it easier to use. It also features a flip-out 3.0" touchscreen and a directional 3-capsule microphone perfect for front-facing recording.
Fast and Intelligent Autofocus
The ZV-1F provides high precision focusing with 425 contrast detection AF points to ensure that your footage is always crystal clear. These points cover a large area of the captured image. Additionally, the Eye AF mode enables the camera to detect human faces and eyes automatically, maintaining focus on the object in front of the lens. Touching the screen is all it takes to change the focal point to another. You don't need to be concerned about lighting either because Face Priority AE will automatically brighten your face or the face of your subject.
Easy Bokeh at the Touch of a Button
The ZV-1F's bokeh switch makes it simple to achieve stunning backgrounds that aren't in focus. True optical bokeh is made possible by the camera's large 1" image sensor and wide f/2 aperture lens. Choose defocus to make the focal point pop against the bokeh-defocused background, or choose clear to keep everything in focus.
Impressive Colors to Match Your Style
Take lovely pictures that reflect your personal style. Select from one of the 10 creative style presets offered for professional-level footage without worrying about time-consuming editing. The contrast, highlights, shadows, saturation, sharpness, and clarity can all be improved right away by using creative styles.
Beautiful Skin Tones for Everyone
Anytime you are shooting, present your best self. The camera accurately captures skin tones without the need for any special settings, resulting in a healthy and natural appearance. Additionally, a Soft Skin Effect mode is available to modify skin smoothness.
Steady Footage While Walking
Engaging content often involves showing your audience your surroundings, but shaky video can be off-putting. With the ZV-1F, you can capture crystal-clear video even while moving around. In order to get steadier shots when using a handheld camera, active mode image stabilization helps to reduce image blur.
Slow Motion & Speed
Without any editing, capture heartfelt moments in slow motion or amp up the tension for dramatic scenes. You can quickly change the footage speed with the ZV-1F by pressing the Slow and Quick buttons. Use hyper lapse photography to create smooth video at speeds up to 60 times faster and realize your vision. Smooth video can be captured at speeds up to 5 times slower.
Product Showcase Setting
With a single touch, center the spotlight on your products. Simply hold a product in the center of the frame after activating the Product Showcase setting. Without any additional gestures, the camera will automatically focus on it, allowing your viewers to concentrate on what matters.
Select the Best Scenes
You can transfer the scenes you require with the ZV-1F, saving time and storage space. You can extract a 15, 30, or 60 second clip from a video while it is being recorded or replayed and send it directly to your smartphone by adding a shot mark. Shot Marks also make it simple to locate the scenes you want to use, saving you time when you later need to search through the footage.
Vertical Video Made Simple
Just like with your smartphone, take vertical videos for social media. Additionally, the ZV-1F allows you to rotate horizontal video in-camera without additional editing. Additionally, vertical videos are automatically tagged and can be downloaded directly to your smartphone, allowing you to quickly share your content with the world.
Clear Voice Recording
No matter where you're shooting, the ZV-1F is made to clearly record your voice indoors or outdoors. You get high-quality audio from the front of the camera thanks to the built-in directional 3-capsule microphone, allowing you to focus on being creative rather than worrying about the sound when you're recording. Furthermore, even when shooting outdoors in strong winds, the camera can capture your voice clearly because of the included wind screen, which significantly reduces wind noise.
Easy Smartphone Connectivity
The Imaging Edge Mobile Plus app lets you wirelessly transfer all of your captured photos and videos to your smartphone. Additionally, the app makes your phone into a remote for shooting from a distance.
First-time camera users can easily jump straight into shooting. Control icons are displayed on the screen and are easily adjustable with just a touch, so there's no need to study complex settings.
Transform the ZV-1F into a high-quality web camera by simply connecting a compatible device via USB. The 1" image sensor and Creative Look mode ensure vibrant visuals, while the directional 3-capsule microphone gives you excellent audio.
Low Light Performance
Even when taking pictures in dimly lit environments, the ZV-1F enables you to capture clear video with little noise. You can now shoot videos in Intelligent Auto mode with the background blurred as much as possible, making it easier to capture the main subject and giving your videos more impact.
Step-Controlled Step Zoom
You can quickly zoom into the view you want with just a touch of the LCD panel. You can quickly change the angle of view to ensure that you are capturing your best side by choosing between 1x, 1.5x, 2x, and 4x.
Say goodbye to omissions of the action. As soon as you press the record button, the recording lamp turns red and a red frame appears on the screen, immediately alerting you that you are capturing the important details.
From dance videos to action shots, the ZV-1F lets you start shooting when you're ready without a panic. The large self-timer countdown appears in the center of the screen so you can clearly see when it's time to begin.
Long Battery Life
You can enjoy shooting while on the go with the ZV-1F without worrying about running out of battery life. There are many ways to power on throughout a shoot thanks to the camera's rechargeable battery, which can be charged via the USB-C port.
Optional Shooting Grip
This gadget allows you to take more stable pictures and functions as a tripod at the same time. It is compatible with the optional GP-VPT2BT shooting grip. You don't need to reach around the camera body to reach important buttons because the grip easily rotates so that the zoom lever and recording button are on either side.
Optional External Microphones
Increase the quality of your audio even more by adding external microphones. This mic is compatible with the ECM-G1 vlogger microphone and minimizes outside noise while recording sound from the front of the camera. With the optional ECM-W2BT wireless microphone, you can also record your voice from a distance.
