Our Verdict

This latest vlog camera joins the existing ZV-E10 and ZV-1, as the most affordable vlogging option in the entire Sony camera range, perfect for anyone new to content creation. Despite it’s more affordable price tag, the ZV-1F offers many of the features found in the more expensive interchangeable lens model, including a 1-inch sensor and the ability to record 4K video in S-Log3. The built-in ultra wide lens is perfect for vlogging and product showcasing, as well as capturing epic scenes, especially while walking around and vlogging.

The image and sound quality is far superior to smartphones, thanks to a combination of larger sensor, high-quality lens, the 3-capsule microphone and Sony’s real time AF tracking. This recognises subjects and locks onto eyes by using contrast detection, which is not quite as quick as phase-detect AF, but does a great job keeping subjects sharp.

Naturally there’s a Sony flip-out touchscreen, but this also highlights in red to let you know the camera is filming, along with a tally lamp which switches on. A variety of preset modes are available to create mood in virtually any situation while capturing photos, videos or live-streaming and a product showcase feature intelligently focuses on the product instantly. If you’re moving up from phone content or want to get into content creation with a compact all-in-one camera which offers great image and sound quality, the Sony ZV-1F is a great choice.
