Sony launches the ZV-1F, a new camera for vlogging

Sony has launched the ZV-1F, a “pocket” camera optimized for vlogging with the latest Sony technologies designed to highlight user-generated content.


The Sony ZV-1F camera is designed with a fixed 20mm wide-angle lens for optimal selfies and a wide angle of view for capturing more of the background. The vlogging camera also offers a beautiful background bokeh effect for both photos and videos to highlight your subject or create a smoother look.

Skin tones are optimized for both video and photos with the Soft Skin Effect option that smoothes and reduces wrinkles in video and creates a natural skin tone effect for photos.

Face Priority AE automatically adjusts brightness during shooting so that subjects’ faces can be captured in optimal brightness, even in situations where lighting conditions vary. The ZV-1F offers Eye AF for both humans and animals, which allows the autofocus to focus specifically on the face and eyes without being disturbed by other subjects. Users can switch protagonists using the camera’s touchscreen.

When recording video, image stabilization is available in active mode (electronically) to keep your footage steady and smooth even in motion.

The new Creative Look feature gives users more presets to achieve the desired atmosphere in both photos and videos, with differences in tone, brightness, color depth and more. A total of 10 different work modes are available that will allow them to take their creative inspiration to the next level, but also share content immediately without the need for editing.

The ZV-1F also features an S&Q mode for shooting in slow motion at 5x slower speed and fast motion at 60x faster speed to get the effect you want every time.

The 3-capsule directional microphone with wind shield ensures clear voice recording and noise reduction in windy outdoor conditions.

Weighing around 229 grams, it is compact and light enough for everyday use and can be carried anywhere. It also features a tiltable LCD touchscreen that offers functions and settings that can be changed by touch, including the ability to zoom, so operation is instinctive.

The new vlogging camera includes a Bokeh Switch button that allows users to quickly switch between background bokeh – when they want to highlight the subject’s face – and clear full-frame images, even while recording video. The camera also has a Product Showcase setting to switch focus between faces and featured products – a handy feature for reviews.

The ZV-1F also features a self-timer as well as a recording light to make video content easier to capture.


The Sony ZV-1F is optimized for use with a smartphone. Sony’s new Imaging Edge Mobile Plus smartphone app allows users to connect to the camera via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and transfer images and videos. Recorded content can be easily transferred to a smartphone and then uploaded to social media platforms.

Users can tag photos for social media posting using capture tags during the image capture process or directly on the camera. Users can edit and upload to their smartphone selected clips marked as 15, 30 or 60 seconds long and can post them directly to social networks without having to edit their length to fit the platform.

Through the Imaging Edge Mobile Plus app, users can control many camera settings, such as date, time and zone, as well as software updates and support guides. It also enables remote control of the ZV-1F and can display battery level and remaining storage capacity.

Users can even use the ZV-1F as a live streaming device. With the appropriate video conferencing application or similar software,
The ZV-1F can function as a webcam when connected to a computer or smartphone via USB.


The Sony ZV-1F is compatible with the GP-VPT2BT Wireless Hand Grip, which offers cable-free control for zooming, shooting and other operations, and can be extended to form a mini tripod for stable hands-free room shooting. An external microphone can be attached to the skate, ensuring clear sound recording.

The ZV-1F camera is designed with environmentally friendly specifications and technologies. Recycled materials, including SORPLAS, are used both in the camera body and in the construction of the accessories included in the package, such as the new windshield, which is adapted to maintain performance. The plant materials used to pack the products are used for their bags to reduce the use of plastic.
