Users can focus on framing their shots as the AF detects various subjects in frame, without the need to change settings. Not only can the AF detect human faces of approximately 3% in size (which is the world’s smallest, it also enables easy focusing in low-light situations down to -10 EV such as during nighttime, moonlit landscapes, and indoor portraits.
The Z f features enhanced VR performance; the in-camera Vibration Reduction of 8.0 stops expands the range of handheld shooting to include low-light indoor and long exposure shots. For the first time in the world, focus point VR has also been incorporated to suppress blur near the focus point in an image, even in compositions where the subject is positioned at the periphery. This enables users to casually shoot handheld, regardless of the brightness and composition, and thereby expand their range of expressions.
The Z f also boasts a few firsts: It is fitted with the first Vari-angle monitor in the full-frame/FX-format Z series, which enables flexibility when composing stills or video shots such as overhead, low angle or selfies.
