- Quickly switch between two modes of defocused background bokeh
- Product showcase setting transitions focus from face to object
- Image stabilization suppresses shake even while walking

- Super slow-motion movie
- Built-in ND to control exposure in bright light conditions
- Optimal image processing perfects selfies
Optimal image processing is realized with advanced image processing system, which delivers perceived resolution together with low noise for high image quality. It also contributes to accuracy and speed of autofocus and auto-exposure (AF/AE) with both face and eye detection AF, and contributes to focus and exposure adjustment when shooting in selfie mode.
- Fast, hybrid AF even when shooting movies
The focal-plane phase detection autofocus (AF) sensor delivers fast and accurate focusing in both still and movie modes. When shooting movies, you can control the AF drive speed (default: fast) and AF tracking sensitivity (default: responsive) settings, allowing the focus to reflect both the scene and your shooting intentions. The highly accurate focusing with tenacious tracking is possible even when shooting 4K movies, where focusing requirements are notoriously severe. Focus will also switch quickly between the face and the background that you want to picture even while shooting selfies.
- Real-time eye AF for movies
Real-time eye AF uses AI-based subject recognition technology to detect eye information in real time, allowing people's eyes to be recognized and tracked even when shooting movies. This continuous auto-focusing on the eyes when shooting people, including selfies, allows you to concentrate on framing. Focus on the left and right eyes can also be selected by touch operation.
- Real-time tracking for movies
ZV-1 includes advanced AF (autofocus) functions allowing it to lock on and track subjects with high accuracy and speed while recording. The subject recognition algorithm uses AI (artificial intelligence) technology including machine learning to process color, pattern and subject distance in real time.
- Beautiful background bokeh
A combination of the large sensor and wide F1.8 maximum aperture lens, beautifully defocuses the background, bringing attention to you or your subject in the foreground. Additionally, the ZV-1 has a handy background defocus function, assignable to a custom button (default C1) for rapid and simple switching of bokeh background defocus settings.
- Quick switch for background defocus
Sometimes you want to blur the background and draw focus to your subject while other times you want both the background and your subject to be in clear focus. Without deep knowledge of cameras or video settings - you can easily use a custom button to rapidly switch between fully open aperture (F1.8-2.8) for a greater defocused background bokeh or F5.6 to get less background bokeh and more of the scene in focus.
- Prioritize your face
The ZV-1 incorporates a new feature to maintain a consistent bright face even in extreme changes in lighting. Face-priority AE detects the face and adjusts the exposure to ensure the face is depicted in an ideal brightness, even if walking from a bright place into shade, it detects your face and instantly adjusts. The AE technology also suppresses an abrupt change in exposure if the subject quickly turns away from the frame to eliminate unexpected blown out or extremely dark shots.
