Digital Camera Description

The Sony ZV-1 is a Compact Digital Camera with a 1" sensor. Its 20 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 100-12800 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 64-12800. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in relatively low-light. With 20 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.

A builtin Image Stabilization mechanism allows the Sony ZV-1 to compensate for camera shake.

This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/32000 to 30s. Bulb exposures of an unspecified duration are possible with this camera. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/32000, fast action can easily be frozen. Night photography is possible using this digital camera due to its long exposure capability. This camera model offers Full Manual Controls.

Sony ZV-1

The Sony ZV-1 features a 315-point Phase-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. A Real-Time Autofocus Tracking System allows focus to follow a moving subject within the frame. Manual Focus is also available.

A single control-dial on this camera makes it easy to use semi-automatic modes by adjusting the current exposure parameter directly This camera does not feature any seals to protect it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. Care must be taken, just like with most electronics. There is no viewfinder on the Sony ZV-1 and no provision to add one.
