Sony has announced a new camera designed mostly with video blogging, or vlogging, in mind. It’s called the ZV-1F and it comes with the equivalent of a 20mm prime lens and a 20-mp BSI CMOS sensor. That said, it can record in 4K but only up to 30fps, while its 1080p recording can reach 120fps. As previously mentioned the ZV-1F is designed with video in mind, and that becomes very evident as it has no support for RAW photo capturing. On top of that, there are a number of other limiting features that could sway many to forking over a few hundred dollars more for a more advanced camera model. It will launch in late October for $499.
