    Product Features:

    Fit everything in frame

    With the ZV-1F, you can truly capture it all - it allows you to snap a group selfie along with an expansive view of the background scenery. Since the camera's ultra-wide-angle 20 mm1 lens captures a wider field of view than the human visual field, you can take images with eye-popping depth and perspective, even in narrow spaces, both indoors and outdoors.

    Beautiful skin tones for everyone

    Look your best any time you're shooting. Without any special settings, the ZV-1F will accurately capture your skin tone, ensuring you a healthy and natural look. There's also a Soft Skin Effect selectable to OFF/ Low/ Mid/ High to adjust your skin smoothness.

    3 Sharp autofocus, bright face

    Using Eye AF, the camera automatically recognizes human faces and eyes, making sure you stay in focus in front of the lens. Switching the focus to another subject is easy - just touch the screen. There's no need to worry about lighting either, as Face Priority AE (autoexposure) will automatically brighten your face.

    Easy bokeh at the push of a button

    Get beautiful defocused backgrounds like a pro, with just a press of the Bokeh Switch. The camera’s large 1-inch (1.0-lype) image sensor and wide F2.0 aperture lens allows for true optical bokeh. Select (Defocus) to make the main subject stand out against the defocused background bokeh, or (Clear) to keep the entire image in focus.

    Impressive colors to match your style

    Capture beautiful images to match your personal stye. Chose form one of 10 available Creative Style presets for pro-level footage - without worrying about complicated editing. Creative Styles can instantly enhance contrast, highlights, shadows, fade, saturation, sharpness and clarity.

    Slow motion or speed at the touch of a button

    Capture those touching moments in slow motion or ramp up the energy for dramatic scenes- all without any editing. With the ZV-1F, you can adjust the footage speed just by pressing the S+Q (Slow + Quick) button. 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.

    Steady footage even when walking

    Showing your viewers the world around you makes engaging content, but shaky footage can be a bit distracting. The ZV-1F allows you to capture video clearly even while walking. Active Mode image stabilization3 helps to minimize image blur from handheld shooting for steadier shots.

    Ideal for product-review videos

    Put your products on center stage with a single touch. Just set the Product Showcase setting, and simply hold a product in the center of the frame. The camera will automatically focus on it - with no additional gestures needed. Let your viewers concentrate on what counts - when it counts.

    Designed for clear voice recording

    Indoors or outdoors, the ZV-1F is designed to always capture your voice clearly no matter where you're shooting. The built-in Directional 3-Capsule Mic collects sound from in 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.

    Clear sound even on windy days

    When you're shooting outdoors and battling the wind, the ZV-1F can still record your voice clearly, thanks to a supplied wind screen that drastically reduces wind noise.

    Vertical video made simple

    Shoot vertical videos6 for social media - just like on your smartphone. The ZV-1F also gives you the option of rotating horizontal video in-camera with no extra editing required4. What's more, vertical videos are automatically tagged so you can transfer them straight to your smartphone, letting you get your content out to the world quickly.

    Connect to your smartphone to do more

    Transfer all your recorded images and videos to your smartphone over W i-Fi through the Imaging Edge Mobile Plus™ app5 It also turns your phone into a remote control for remote shooting. Learn more about Imaging Edge Plus.

    Select the best scenes

    Only transfer the scenes you need, saving time and smartphone storage space. By adding a Shot Mark while shooting or replaying a video, you can cut out a 15, 30 or 60 second6 clip to send straight to your smartphone7. Shot Marks also allow you to easily find the scenes you want to use, cutting down on time searching through footage later.

    Simple, intuitive control

    Even first-time camera users can jump straight into shooting with the ZV-1F. There's no need to study complex settings. Control icons are displayed on the screen and are easily adjustable with just a touch.

    Never forget to press record

    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 know instantly that you're capturing what counts.

    Effortlessly portable

    Small and lightweight, the camera is designed to be taken out and about - just like your smartphone. Capture everyday life with ease, and grab content on the go.

    Use a shooting grip for easy vlogging

    Vlogging is simpler and more comfortable with the GP-VPT2BT shooting grip (sold separately), which enables you to grab more stable shots, and also doubles as a tripod. The grip can easily rotate 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.

    Next level audio quality

    Raise your vlog’s audio quality even further through connecting external microphones. Attach the ECM-G1 vlog microphone8 to dearly capture sound directly in the front of the camera - cutting down on unwanted noise from elsewhere - or record your voice from a distance with the ECM-W2BT wireless microphone (sold separately).

    Simple streaming with a single cable

    Transform the ZV-1F into a high-quality web camera by simply connecting a compatible device via USB. The 1-inchb (1.0-type) image sensor and Creative Look ensure vibrant visuals, while the Directional 3-Capsule Mic will give you excellent audio.

    Keep your subjects in focus

    High precision focusing makes sure your subject stays razor sharp. The 425 contrast- detection AF points14 are arranged to cover a wide area of the captured image. What’s more, Eye AF track faces without getting diverted by other subjects.

    Capture the details, even in dim light

    Thanks to its 20.1 million15 pixel Exmor RS™ 1.0-type (1-inch) stacked CMOS image sensor with integral memory, the ZV-1F can 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.

    Touch-controlled step zoom

    With just a touch of the LCD panel, you can easily zoom in to the view of your preference. You can select from 1.0x/1.5x/2.0x/4.0x16 to quickly change the angle of view to make sure you capture your best side.

    Dedicated media for worry-free shooting

    Capture it all without worrying about running out of storage space on your smartphone. The ZV-1F can record to removable SD or SDXC media8, giving you the freedom to shoot as much as you want.

    Shoot for longer with a USB-chargeable battery

    With the ZV-1F, you can enjoy shooting on the go without worrying about running out of battery power. The camera can be charged via its USB Type-C® port, as well as from a mobile battery, giving you plenty of options for powering on through a shoot.

    Start the shoot with a timer

    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 screen17 so you can clearly see when it’s time to begin.

    Newly developed wind screen using recycled polyester10

    At Sony, we've extended the use of recycled materials beyond the camera body to include accessories9 as well. Through careful testing of sound quality performance and wind protection efficacy, we have developed a wind screen using fibers made exclusively from recycled polyester10, lessening our environmental impact while maintaining performance.
