The Sony ZV-1F Vlogging Camera is a pocket-sized camera with a large 1" sensor and a 20mm-equivalent wide-angle lens. The camera allows you to snap a group selfie with an expansive view of the background scenery and get everything in the frame, even at arm's length. The lens captures a wider field of view than the human eye, enabling you to take images with eye-popping depth and perspective both indoors and outdoors. Small and lightweight, the camera is meant to be taken out and about so you can capture everyday life with ease and grab content on the go. Offering 425 contrast-detection AF points to cover a wide area of the captured image, the ZV-1F provides high-precision focusing to make sure your footage stays razor-sharp. And with Eye AF mode, the camera automatically recognizes human faces and eyes, making sure your subject stays in focus in front of the lens. And switching the focus to another focal point is as easy as touching the screen. Select defocus to make the main subject stand out against the defocused background bokeh, or select clear to keep the entire image in focus. Look your best any time you're shooting. Without any special settings, the camera accurately captures skin tones, ensuring a healthy and natural look. There's also a Soft Skin Effect mode to adjust skin smoothness.
Active Mode image stabilization helps to minimize image blur from handheld shooting for steadier shots. Shoot smooth video at speeds up to 5x slower, or use hyper-lapse shooting to make the video up to 60x faster and bring your vision to life. The ZV-1F lets you transfer the scenes you need, saving time and storage space. By adding a Shot Mark while shooting or replaying a video, you can cut out a 15, 30, or 60-second clip to send straight to your smartphone. Shot Marks also allow you to easily find the scenes you want to use, cutting down on time searching through footage later. The built-in directional 3-capsule microphone collects sound from the front of the camera, giving you high-quality audio, so you can put your energy into creativity instead of worrying about the sound while recording. 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. The ZV-1F lets you capture clear video with little noise even when shooting in dimly lit locations. While shooting in Intelligent Auto mode, you can now shoot video with the background blurred to the maximum possible extent, allowing the main subject to be captured more clearly and giving your videos extra impact. Say goodbye to accidentally missing the action.
When you press record, the recording lamp glows red and a red frame appears on the screen, letting you instantly know that you're capturing what counts. Compatible with the optional GP-VPT2BT shooting grip, this device enables you to grab more stable shots and also doubles as a tripod. The grip easily rotates to have the zoom lever and recording button on either side, so you don't have to stretch around the camera body to reach key buttons.
