Face Priority AE

The ZV-1 has a series of designed-for-vlogging features, to make it easy to get the desired result, with minimal interaction with the camera or its settings.

The most basic of these is Face Priority Auto Exposure. This does exactly what you might expect: it ties the camera's metering to the face detection system, and prioritizes the exposure of the presenter's face over the metering of the scene as a whole. It's designed to respond rapidly to changes in exposure so that faces remain correctly exposed even if the light changes.

Sony also says its adjusted the camera's color response in the 'Standard' Creative Style with a particular focus on making (a variety of) skin tones look more attractive.
