The Sony ZV-1 is a 20.1MP premium camera specifically designed for vloggers and content creators. It features a 1.0-type stacked CMOS sensor (as found in the acclaimd Sony RX100 IV) and super-fast AF for high quality images and 4K video. The 24-70mm zoom lens is perfect for both portraits and wide-angle shooting. The Image stabilisation helps to keep your photos and videos blur free. It has an ergonomic, comfortable grip plus a 3-inch vari-angle LCD screen with recording lamp, which makes selfie-shooting very easy.
The ZV-1 includes a built-in 3-directional capsule mic with attachable wind shield for clear professional quality sound recording. Also featured on this camera is sony's real-time Eye AF technology which locks on and tracks people's eyes, even when shooting 4K movies. Soft skin, natural skin tones and optimised brightness for faces effects are included and there is bokeh switch so you can easily get that lovely blurred background. There is a multi Interface Shoe for an external mic and 3.5mm jack if additional microphones need to be added.
Beautiful and natural skin tones for everyone
The ZV-1 makes all skin colours look vibrant, natural and healthy. There’s also an optional Soft Skin Effect mode for a smoother look. The large 1.0-type CMOS sensor and wide-aperture lens deliver images with professional background bokeh, as well as clear detail even in challenging low-light conditions.
Let the camera catch your eye
With AI1 technology you can rely on the autofocus sticking firmly to your face and eyes without wandering to other subjects. When you want to focus on another subject, just touch it on the screen and let the camera do the focusing. The ZV-1’s Fast Hybrid AF system lets you simply and quickly switch focus from a face to the background, for more stylistic and watchable videos.
Pro-quality bokeh control with one touch
By just pushing the Bokeh switch, you can switch background bokeh on and off – no need for complex manual adjustments. Now it’s easy to simply select a professional-looking defocused background, or keep the entire scene in focus, with just the press of a button. The ZV-1 is built to get great shots while you’re moving. With amazing image stabilisation, you can shoot smooth video when walking and, as the lighting changes shadow to sun, or outdoors to in, the automatic exposure (AE) tracks faces and makes sure they always appear well-lit.
Designed for even better audio
You can capture clear vocals even when shooting in a crowd. The camera’s unique directional 3-capsule mic gathers clear sound from in front of the camera, ideal for movie shooting. The supplied wind screen reduces wind noise for worry-free outdoor shooting. As well as achieving premium sound quality, that also means you’ll spend less time re-shooting and editing footage affected by wind noise.
Time-lapse for that cinematic effect
Interval shooting mode automatically captures sequences of images from 1 – 60 seconds apart, from which cinematic time lapse videos can be created on a PC, where clouds flow past like water and whole days pass in seconds. The ZV-1 design makes creating outstanding selfie and vlog content easy. Right down to the last detail, the ZV-1 is all about empowering you to make inspirational content.
