Introduction

The Sony ZV-1F is a extra reasonably priced model of 2020’s ZV-1, with each being a compact vlogging digital camera designed for creators.

Geared toward smartphone homeowners who need a extra succesful video digital camera with out breaking the financial institution, the ZV1F appears and feels very very like its dearer sibling, with just a few necessary variations to assist it hit a cheaper price level.

Firstly, the brand new mannequin has a hard and fast focal size 20mm f/2 lens, quite than the 24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 zoom lens discovered on the ZV-1F. This usefully gives a wider angle of view that makes it much more appropriate for vlogging and selfies, however loses out on the additional versatility of a zoom.

Each cameras supply 20 megapixel decision from their comparatively giant 1-inch (13.2 mm x 8.8 mm) sensors, however the ZV-1F has a special sensor which solely helps contrast-detection auto-focusing (425 factors), quite than the hybrid part/distinction detection AF system discovered within the ZV-1F.

There are a number of options that the ZV-1F lacks when in comparison with the ZV-1, most notably no optical stabilization, no RAW file help for stills (simply JPEGs), and no built-in ND filter.

In any other case, the 2 cameras are very related, with each sharing the identical compact dimension, a microphone socket, a hot-shoe on the highest, a display screen which flips out to the facet, 4K/30p video capturing, NP-BX1 battery and skill to shoot the identical video Image Profiles as its A7-series greater brothers.

The ZV-1F is obtainable in black solely and at present prices round £550 / $500, which is considerably cheaper than the £700 / $750 ZV-1 mannequin. It’s made in China.

Ease of Use




Sony ZV-1F

When contemplating the Sony ZV-1F it’s necessary to know precisely who it’s for. In a world of Instagram Tales, YouTube and TikTok, Sony has created a digital camera that’s designed to attraction to creators who need extra high quality and adaptability than they might get from capturing with a smartphone or motion digital camera.

Aspect by facet the ZV-1F appears like a barely bloated model of the favored RX100 digital camera; it’s a millimetre or two bigger in each dimension, which accentuates the rounded edges of the digital camera.

Maintain the ZV-1F for the primary time and one other main change turns into obvious – it has a plastic, or polycarbonate, physique, versus the extra premium all-metal design of the RX100.

Once more, this has been performed to maintain the price of the digital camera down, however in hand the physique appears strong sufficient. All of the elements match very properly collectively, there are not any creaks or weak trying joints, with the whole lot very nicely designed and assembled.

The ZV-1F might not have a zoom lens, however that hasn’t stopped Sony from incorporating what they’ve known as a touch-controlled step zoom for each stills and video.

With only a contact of ZOOM icon on the the LCD panel, you may choose from 1.0x/1.5x/2.0x/4.0x choice. This makes use of a combination of Sony’s Clear Picture Zoom and digital zoom to shortly change the angle of view.

The rear of the digital camera is sort of an identical to the RX100 sequence and to the ZV-1, with the acquainted directional management dial positioned round a central choice button. Round this sit 4 different buttons to entry usually used options.

What has modified is the position of the video recording button. This has moved from being a small, arduous to press, button on the top-right of the rear of the RX100, to being a lot bigger and occupying a way more distinguished place on the top-plate of the ZV-1F.

This distinction additionally permits the ZV-1F to have a a lot bigger, and really welcome, rubberised thumb grip on the rear whcih makes it simpler to function one-handed at arm’s size.

Lastly on the rear is the 3-inch, 921,000 dot LCD display screen. That is hinged to the facet of the digital camera and gives 180 diploma rotation, that means it may be folded to the facet, then flipped to face ahead for vlogging or self-portraits (or selfies as they’re now identified), in addition to having the ability to fold the display screen in to the digital camera physique to supply safety while you simply need to carry the digital camera unfastened in a bag or pocket.




Sony ZV-1F

On the facet of the ZV-1F sit its three exterior ports – HDMI, Micro USB and that all-important 3.5mm microphone enter.

The HDMI-out permits for exterior video recording which can help you squeeze each little bit of element out of the 1-inch sensor, though attaching any exterior system sort of defeats the purpose of this being a small vlogging digital camera. Nonetheless, it’s a helpful choice to have if solely to playback video or photos straight from the digital camera.

The USB Kind-C (USB 2.0) socket permits for energy to be equipped to each preserve the ZV-1F going with a battery put in, or to cost the battery when the digital camera is just not in use. It is a welcome improve from the quite antiquated Micro USB port discovered on the ZV-1.

In addition to being quicker, it permits the ZV-1F to behave as one other audio interface for the digital camera, permitting headphones for use, a lot as Fujifilm has performed with its X-T3 and X-T4 cameras.

It’s an especially helpful characteristic to have on condition that the NP-BX1 batteries are fairly small and people planning to shoot video could be suggested to buy just a few extra, or have a powerbank accessible on standby.

Beneath testing circumstances the battery life is quoted as being between 45-75mins, relying on what number of different operations you’re doing, zooming, energy the digital camera on and off and many others. Bearing in mind reviewing photos and video, zooming out and in, having the display screen on while not recording and taking nonetheless photos, we might count on actual world utilization to be under the 45mins quoted.

The utmost recording time for a single steady video clip is now fortunately limitless, which is significantly better than the 29mins 59 secs restrict discovered on the ZV-1.

It’s on the highest of the digital camera the place there are essentially the most notable variations from the RX100 vary. The pop-up flash and pop-up EVF are gone, changed as a substitute with a big three-capsule path microphone and a Multi Interface hot-shoe.




Sony ZV-1F

The shoe permits for any commonplace equipment to be mounted, with microphones and LED lights being the obvious. Nonetheless, the Multi Interface half additionally permits for appropriate Sony equipment to work intelligently with the digital camera and in addition draw energy the place wanted.

We efficiently mounted and used the Sony HVL-F43M flash on the digital camera, which operated completely. It’s clearly hideously outsized for the ZV-1F, and isn’t one thing we might advocate utilizing, however at a push, it does imply that you could mount and use Sony flashguns.

The Sony ECM-XYST1M stereo microphone can be used, with the audio despatched by way of the Multi Shoe quite than requiring a 3.5mm cable to be plugged into the facet of the digital camera.

One other change from the RX100 to the ZV-1F is the removing of the ‘Mode’ dial, which has been changed with a Mode button subsequent to the digital camera energy button.

This will look like an enormous change, however realizing photographers behaviour it is a not often used dial which can largely be set in the identical place relying on the photographer’s most well-liked mode. It takes a second or two longer to modify modes utilizing the button, but it surely definitely isn’t a deal breaker.

In addition to the shutter and zoom management toggle, the top-plate additionally sees the addition of the video document button. That is a lot bigger than the small button discovered on the RX100 cameras, and it’s marked with a purple ring to simply establish it when in comparison with the shutter button.

Lastly on the highest there’s the Background Defocus button. For vloggers the purpose of this button is to modify between having the background blurred or clear. In photographic phrases it’s switching the aperture between the biggest accessible (f/2) and f/5.6.

It’s a helpful button to have accessible for video, however even for stills pictures it’s one thing we might use to make a really fast aperture change.




Sony ZV-1F

Sadly, the management ring that’s discovered across the lens of the RX100 sequence cameras is just not included on the ZV-series fashions. This could possibly be used to alter a variety of various things, from the focusing or zooming of the lens, to the aperture. Once more, this will need to have been largely to maintain prices down, and presumably to maintain the controls of the ZV-1F so simple as doable.

With the dearth of a mode dial and the lens management dial, it does take a bit longer to modify between among the settings of the ZV-1F in comparison with an RX100-series digital camera.

Fortunately the operate button on the rear of the digital camera operates in precisely the identical because it does on the RX100 and A7 sequence cameras, so you need to use it to shortly entry options you’ll need essentially the most, comparable to white steadiness, Image Type and the AF settings.

The ‘Trash’ button additionally acts because the ‘C2’ customized button, which by default is ready to entry the Product Showcase mode. It is a particular autofocus mode that alerts the digital camera to modify focus from an individual’s face to an object that could be held up in entrance of the digital camera.

It is a well-liked YouTube approach for when wanting to point out an merchandise to the viewer, however on cameras with slower autofocus it will probably depart the main focus mounted on the presenter’s face with the product out of focus, and vice versa. The Product Showcase mode solves that problem, including one other plus level for vlogging with the ZV-1F.

The menu system of the ZV-1F is an identical to different Sony cameras, so current customers can have no drawback navigating it, while these much less acquainted might discover the odd merchandise buried away in a curious location. Most usefully the choice to customize the Operate Button Fast menu stays, and it will probably have two completely different variations relying on whether or not you’re capturing stills or video.

There’s additionally the MyMenu display screen, the place you may add some other the Menu settings to your personal personalised Menu Display screen, and there’s additionally the choice to make this the default display screen that pops up when the Menu button is pressed.

So though there’s an virtually overwhelming quantity of options within the ZV-1F, between the Operate Menu and the My Menu it’s best to be capable to entry the whole lot you want shortly and effectively as soon as you have spent a bit time setting all of it up.




Sony ZV-1F

The ZV-1F notably lacks the Hybrid AF sensor that utilises as much as 315-phase detection factors and 425-contrast detection factors, as discovered on the dearer ZV-1. As a substitute, it solely has 425-point distinction detection system, which though usually fairly snappy, does not enable for a similar stage of for the quick and clean topic monitoring that part detection AF helps.

Nonetheless, it does nonetheless help EyeAF, which detects a human eye not solely when capturing nonetheless photos, but additionally when capturing video, and it really works extraordinarily nicely. It’s visibly quick sufficient to comply with a watch across the display screen, and you may even choose which eye you want to concentrate on, similar to on latest A7 cameras.

And so forth to the important thing a part of the ZV-1F, its video options. The ZV-1F is actually like a miniature model of the A7 sequence cameras. Just about all the video settings which are discovered a lot additional up within the vary are right here. Video will be recorded in 4K decision at as much as 30fps, while Full HD will be shot at as much as 100/120fps relying on whether or not you’re shoot PAL or NTSC format.

There are additionally the HFR modes the place you may shoot at 250, 500 or 1000fps, with footage then saved at 25fps for tremendous gradual movement playback. It ought to be famous that though the HFR video is saved on the Full HD 1920 x 1080 decision, it’s upscaled from a a lot smaller recorded decision; within the case of 1000fps this can be as little as 912 x 308 pixels.

The size of time you may document a clip can be restricted to just some seconds relying on the chosen body price and whether or not you select the High quality or Time mode. Both approach, it’s lengthy sufficient to create fascinating tremendous gradual movement footage, however for many customers the 100 or 120fps modes can be greater than sufficient and be higher high quality.

All the Image Profiles are current and proper, that means you may match the footage shot with the ZV-1F with cameras such because the A7 III, making it a great accompaniment for many who could also be utilizing these cameras in additional of a studio surroundings.

Proxy recording is obtainable, permitting low decision 1280 x 720 decision footage to be recorded alongside 4K or Full HD footage. That is nice for many who could also be modifying video on older computer systems. Merely edit utilizing the decrease decision proxy information, then change to the complete decision 4K information in the case of the ultimate fine-tuning and export.

The built-in ND filter characteristic that Sony included within the ZV-1 has sadly been omitted from the ZV-1F. This 3EV filter helped you to shoot at bigger apertures on vibrant days, which is extraordinarily helpful when capturing video and making an attempt to stay to the shutter velocity being double the body price rule.




Sony ZV-1F

For instance, at 25fps the best shutter velocity is 1/fiftieth sec. If you wish to create a shallow depth of area on a vibrant sunny day you’d be arduous pushed to do that, however turning the ND filter on will darken the picture simply sufficient to permit an aperture 3 stops bigger for use, serving to to create a shallower depth of area.

It is an actual disgrace that this extraordinarily helpful characteristic hasn’t been included on the ZV-1F and could also be purpose sufficient to pay extra for the ZV-1.

One other essential approach by which the 2 fashions notably differ is stabilisation. On the ZV-1 there’s Optical Steadyshot built-in to the lens, which supplies you a few stops further to play with when taking nonetheless photos and smoothing out the lightest of actions when capturing video.

On the cheaper ZV-1, sadly there is no such thing as a optical stabilisation, solely the choice to modify on Energetic SteadyShot in video, which is a digital type of stabilisation. This crops in to the picture barely by 1.23x to present the digital camera room to digitally transfer the picture body round to compensate for any bigger actions. It really works very nicely, creating very secure footage when handholding and taking out all however the heaviest of footsteps when strolling.

The catch is that due to the slight crop, in case you are vlogging your face will seem bigger when within the body. We’d counsel solely utilizing it when strolling or zooming in to point out one thing, and when presenting to digital camera use a tripod if doable.

We’re not fairly certain why, as there isn’t any technical purpose to do that, however Sony have determined to not embrace RAW file help for stills on the ZV-1F, simply JPEGs. Maybe this determination has been made to simplify the digital camera for its extra video-focused target market, but it surely does vastly restrict its attraction to stills photographers who may need been contemplating it as a succesful pocket digital camera. You may want to leap to the ZV-1 to get this characteristic.

With the choice so as to add an exterior microphone or an LED gentle, or perhaps a deal with, to the hot-shoe, the ZV-1F is a succesful video digital camera that we’re certain will discover an instantaneous residence amongst the vlogging neighborhood, significantly these customers who’re at present utilizing A7-series cameras.

The 4K picture high quality is crisp and clear and the Image Profiles allow you to shoot S-Log footage in addition to all the Cine types, so it ought to be straightforward to search out and create a method that you just like that works throughout quite a lot of Sony cameras.

Picture High quality

All the pattern photos on this evaluation have been taken utilizing the 20 megapixel SuperFine JPEG setting, which produces a median picture dimension of round 7Mb.

With the stacked sensor from the ZV-1F being utilized in a number of earlier Sony RX100 cameras, it’s one thing of a identified amount.

As a bottom illuminated sensor, a lot of the circuitry of the sensor is discovered behind the photosites, which maximises the sunshine gathering capabilities and makes it a powerful sensor given its modest 1” dimension. With this circuitry straight on the sensor, it allows the digital camera to shoot bursts at as much as 16fps, a bit slower than the 24fps on the ZV-1.

With a sensitivity vary of between ISO 125 and 12,800, it has a very good vary for a compact digital camera, with out going to the extraordinarily excessive settings that may be pushing the sensor too far. Our recommendation is to keep away from the best two sensitivity settings except you actually don’t have any alternative however to make use of them.

There are additionally two decrease sensitivities of ISO 80 and ISO 100, nevertheless these supply no improved picture high quality as are merely utilizing the native ISO 125 setting, growing the publicity time after which adjusting the sign acquire to darken the picture. The result’s that though it can enable for slower shutter speeds or a bigger aperture for use, there’s a diminished dynamic vary as a result of highlights tending to clip extra simply.

All through the whole vary the default noise discount settings for JPEG photos cut back each luminance and color noise. The luminance noise discount is a bit heavy handed while you begin to attain settings round ISO 1600; we would like a bit extra element and luminance noise than the slight blur that’s utilized when luminance noise is diminished. That stated there’s nonetheless loads of element at decrease ISO sensitivities, though the dearth of RAW information is an actual disgrace in the case of getting essentially the most out of your photos.

Color noise is nicely diminished all through the digital camera’s vary with the color noise discount set to Regular by default. There’s some lack of color saturation at larger sensitivity so it is a good suggestion to alter the setting to ‘Low’ in some circumstances, significantly if capturing on a vibrant sunny day quite than in low gentle.

For a compact digital camera the 1-inch sensor clearly has a bonus over commonplace compact or smartphone dimension sensor with extra element and fewer noise, although you continue to must do not forget that this isn’t an APS-C or Full body sensor, so sticking to the decrease sensitivities is at all times going to supply the perfect outcomes.

Noise

The Sony ZV-1F has eight sensitivity settings at full decision starting from ISO 125 to ISO 12800. Listed below are some 100% crops which present the noise ranges for every ISO setting for each JPEG and Uncooked codecs.

Dynamic Vary

Once more, the benefit of a 1-inch sensor in comparison with a typical smartphone or compact sensor means the ZV-1F gives good dynamic vary, although clearly it will probably’t fairly match that of an APS-C or full body sensor

Sony has employed its ordinary Dynamic Vary Optimiser characteristic within the ZV-1F. This has 7 completely different settings together with Off, Auto and ranges 1-5. The publicity is adjusted to retain spotlight element, with the curve on the shadow areas adjusted to lighten them to maximise the dynamic vary accessible.

In-camera HDR can be accessible, and in good gentle and with a gentle hand you may efficiently use this characteristic handheld.
