The Ultimate Vlog Camera
Introducing the Sony ZV-1 – the ultimate camera for vloggers and content creators. Compact and lightweight, this breakthrough vlog camera delivers stunning image quality using a bright ZEISS 24-70mm f1.8-2.8 lens and 1.0-inch, 20.1MP Exmor RS CMOS sensor. An ISO range of 125-12800 and SteadyShot Active image stabilisation help provide clear, crisp photos and steadier video even when shooting handheld or in dim indoor or evening light. With a comfortable grip, a large REC button at the top and a large recording lamp on the front, the Sony ZV-1 digital camera makes it easy to create on the go.
Real-time Eye AF in Stills and 4K Video
Focus and track your subject with amazing speed and precision. Utilising AI technology and 315 phase detection AF (autofocus) points, the ZV-1 compact digital camera can lock focus in 0.03 seconds and track people’s eyes in real time, helping to capture even fast-moving subjects like kids or athletes perfectly sharp in photos and videos. Real-time Eye AF even works for animals in stills mode—perfect for pets or wildlife—and can be activated with a tap of the touchscreen.
Flip-out, Vari-angle LCD Touchscreen for Perfect Framing
Compose every shot perfectly with the ZV-1’s articulating LCD touchscreen. Designed to tilt to help you shoot from different angles, the screen also flips out so you can check your framing while vlogging, live streaming or shooting selfies. Better still, it does so without obstructing the hotshoe, so you can attach an external microphone or other accessory while capturing yourself on camera.
Bokeh Switch and Product Showcase
Control background blur at the touch of a button. The Sony ZV-1’s Bokeh Switch button lets you instantly and beautifully soften backgrounds to make your subject stand out. For perfect product review videos, use the Product Showcase setting to seamlessly shift between your face and an object.
Up Your Video Game
The ZV-1 compact camera from Sony meets the demands—and expectations—of filmmakers and content creators with outstanding video features. Record spectacular detail and colour in 4K HDR (with S-log2/3 Picture Profiles for pro-level grading) or super slow-motion footage at up to 960 fps (PAL). A built-in ND filter helps ensure perfect exposure, even in bright conditions, while Soft Skin Effect with AE Face Detection enhances skin tone and texture. The advanced XAVS C file format enables high bit rate recording up to 100MB/s, and videos can be recorded internally and externally via HDMI.
Record crystal-clear audio thanks to the Sony ZV-1’s inbuilt, directional 3-capture microphone. The supplied windscreen minimises unwanted background noise, allowing you to capture clear vocals—even in a crowd or windy conditions—and save time editing. The camera also comes with a 35mm mic port and Multi-Interface (MI) hotshoe, making it easy to use whichever external mic you prefer to get exactly the sound you’re after.
