When it comes to digital cameras, many people forget about it. After all, after mobile phones, there are mirrorless cameras. Who buys digital cameras? At same time, action cameras like GoPro are not often classified as digital cameras, but are positioned as a separate category. Still, digital camera isn't dead. That's not to say that with last year's ZV-1, Sony turned into vlogging camera category and this year it expanded with ZV-1F.
This camera is same as VZ-1, 1" CMOS, 20.1 million pixels, 13.2x8.8mm, 3:2 aspect ratio, fixed focus lens, 35mm equivalent to 20mm, ultra wide, F2. 0 large aperture . In addition, there are 425 focus points, 3 capsule microphones, electronic image stabilization, support for 1080P 120fps and 4K 30fps. It also adds 5x slowdown and 60x speed up.
Because of fixed focus lens, Sony has developed several applications. For example, in 1080P video can reach a clear 2x zoom, of course, this is crop zoom. 4K video also supports a crisp zoom, 1.5X, which is good too, which also alleviates shortage of fixed focus lenses.
The ZV-1F has 425 contrast-detection AF points, while ZV-1 has 315 phase-detection AF points, so ZV-1 is called Fast Hybrid Focus, and ZV-1F has some savings in this regard.
It weighs 256 grams and is priced at 3499 yuan, which is 800 yuan cheaper than 4299 yuan VZ-1, so that's not bad.
As you can see, it has a hot shoe interface which is handy for using Sony's dedicated external microphone.
Of course, you can also use your own 3-capsule microphone with windscreen to improve sound pickup effect.
Mainly used for blog selfies, and it will be very convenient to flip screen.
At same time, it can also act as a computer camera,
However, this camera also has a drawback, that is, a side flip mode, if you look at screen, you cannot look into lens, if you look into lens, you cannot look into lens. screen, so you still have to look into lens, then effect of screen flipping indication is reduced.
But in comparison, reviewer thinks this camera is pretty good. For example, let's take a look at GoPro HERO11 Black that was released a few days ago. CMOS has been upgraded from 1/2.3" to 1/1.9", while Sony still has 1". can support 4K 120 frames.
So, do you choose a high frame rate 4K camera with a small stand, or a 1080p 120fps camera with a large stand? You don't really have to worry about that, it all depends on purpose. The Sony model is suitable for shooting people, while GoPro is suitable for shooting sports. Just understand your needs and everything will be fine.
