Sony ZV-1 Camera for Content Creators and Vloggers (White)

The ZV-1 features a 1.0-type stacked Exmor RS CMOS image sensor with DRAM chip and 24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* large-aperture lens creating beautiful background bokeh (background blur), allowing the subject to stand out from the background. The camera locks on to and tracks subjects with high accuracy and speed using Sony’s leading-edge autofocus system. The ZV-1 also includes the latest-generation BIONZ X image processor with front-end LSI delivering high resolution as well as low noise for superior image quality. It also combines this exceptional imaging technology with high-quality and versatile audio options. The ZV-1 is Sony’s first compact camera with a side-opening Vari-angle LCD screen, making it easier to compose your shots in selfie mode while connecting external audio accessories. To meet any video need, the ZV-1 contains advanced video features including 4K movie recording and in-body image stabilization.

Quickly Switch Between two Modes of Background Bokeh

The ZV-1 offers a simple solution to easily switch between two levels of background bokeh while recording. Using the new Background Defocus function, users can rapidly adjust the optical aperture between more and less background defocusing blur without losing focus on the subject. Located on top of the camera, this Bokeh button is easily accessible and makes selfie shooting operation a breeze.

Focus on the Subject You Want

The ZV-1 makes it easier than ever to shoot product reviews and similar video content. Gone are the days of placing a hand behind an object to prompt the camera to bring it into focus thanks to a new Product Showcase Setting, which allows for quick and smooth focus transitions between the subject’s face and the object placed in front of the lens. Built on the leading-edge technology developed for Alpha and RX series cameras, this new compact camera includes advanced autofocus (AF) allowing it to lock on and track subjects with high accuracy and speed while recording. For maintaining focus on the intended subject or subjects in busy environments, Real-time Eye AF and Real-time Tracking AF for video allows the ZV-1 to seamlessly switch focus between multiple subjects while controlling the AF speed and tracking sensitivity.

Prioritize Your Face

Extreme changes in lighting, like walking outside on a sunny day and suddenly moving from a bright location into shade, are no problem for the ZV-1 thanks to the new Face Priority auto exposure (AE) function. It detects and prioritizes the subject’s face and adjusts the exposure to ensure the face is depicted at an ideal brightness in any environment. This AE technology also suppresses an abrupt change in exposure if the subject quickly turns away from the frame to eliminate unexpected blown-out or extremely dark shots. In addition, the camera features a new advanced color science that has been re-engineered to optimize skin tones for any subject in both still and video modes.

Crystal Clear Audio

High quality content requires clear, excellent audio quality, and the ZV-1 is well-equipped to produce just that with reliable and versatile audio options. The ZV-1’s onboard mic features Sony’s latest Directional 3-capsule Mic which was designed for forward-directional audio capture, allowing for clear capture of the subject’s voice while minimizing background noise, especially when operating in selfie mode. For added flexibility, the ZV-1 also features an industry standard mic jack (3.5mm) and Multi Interface Shoe (MI shoe) making it easy to connect a wide range of external microphones. The ZV-1 is also supplied with a wind screen accessory that fits on the MI shoe to minimize wind interference.

Sony ZV-1 Camera for Content Creators and Vloggers (White)

Sony ZV-1 Camera for Content Creators and Vloggers (White) SKU: DCZV1W

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Features, quality and sound. I expected the quality to be better, sound is very low, hard to work around.
Date published: 2024-03-06
Rated 3 out of 5 by from PlayMemories We absolutely love the camera. Problem is, we can't get the videos from the camera to the computer to edit them. The Play Memories app says every time I try to register that it's timed out!! I'm extremely frustrated with this part of the process. Basically have had the camera for 5 months and haven't used it. This really needs to be fixed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing compact camera I got this for content creation and vlogging for my podcast purposely driven and my business and I am obsessed with it already! The specs are amazing , quality is on point

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect camera !!!!!! I love it a lot perfect size for me travelling and taking pic of my kids so many memories to make
Date published: 2022-11-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Point and Shoot for all content creators I bought this camera to use as my primary vlog camera due to how compact it is. after watching over 50 youtube videos to justify my purchase I found that the features and body of this camera would be a great point-and-shoot camera for travel vlogging. this camera can easily fit into your pocket, side of your backpack, jacket, or just held in hand. It is very discreet and provides great quality and decent audio with just the onboard microphone. the only con to this camera is the battery life but if you use this point and shoot in tandem with a DSLR as most vloggers do, the battery life isn't a big deal. Love all the sony products I have and how long they last.
