Video EYE AF
With AI technology, you can rely on the autofocus sticking firmly to your face and eyes without wandering to other subjects during vlogging. In addition, when the camera recognizes eyes, faces, or subjects, a frame is displayed on each target so you can make sure that the subject is in focus and shoot without worrying.
By simply pushing the Bokeh Switch, you can switch background bokeh on and off – no need for complex manual adjustments. Capture expressive selfies with the professional look of a soft-focus background. Makes your youtube vlogs way easier.
Powerful Image Stabilization
Even while walking with the Sony Digital Vlog Camera, you can get smooth, highly stable imagery thanks to the Steady-Shot joint optical and electronic stabilization system. It’s specifically designed for handheld shots and vlogging with a shooting grip, so you’ll enjoy the confidence of blur- and shake-free shots.
