Sony Alpha ZV-E1 Full-frame Mirrorless Vlog Camera with FE 28-60mm F4-5.6 Lens (White)

Alpha ZV-E1’s Full-frame image sensor with extraordinary sensitivity and wide dynamic range together with advanced color science captures expressive, cinematic imagery. Innovative AI-powered functions enable a solo creator to capture footage that would otherwise require a separate camera operator. ZV-E1’s unique combination of performance and convenience takes your creativity to the next level.

Full-frame 12.1MP1 Exmor R sensor, optimized for 4K, sensitivity and speed

The ZV-E1 is Sony's first vlog camera with a Full-frame 12.1 MP1 Exmor R image sensor that is optimized for 4K and delivers 15+ stops of latitude, low noise, high sensitivity, and gorgeous full-frame bokeh. 

10-bit 4:2:2 recording with direct pixel readout, Long GOP or All Intra formats

The ZV-E1 can record 4K movies with direct pixel readout, 10-bit depth and 4:2:2 color sampling using Long GOP or All Intra compression, making it possible to grade for fuller, more natural gradations while generally providing greater editing freedom.

Create memorable imagery with ease with Cinematic Vlog Setting

Cinematic Vlog Setting provides an intuitive way to create scenes that look like feature movies. By choosing a Look, Mood4, and AF transition speed, anyone can create cinematic vlog footage that ideally matches the scene and creative intent. The Cinematic Vlog Setting includes "Look" options such as S-Cinetone that can enhance skin tones, "Mood" options that can emphasize specific colors, and AF transition speed that determines how quickly autofocus will switch between subjects. The overall cinematic feel is further enhanced by the use of a 24 fps frame rate and the widescreen Cinemascope aspect ratio (2.35:1) with black bands above and below the image. 

Dedicated AI Processor and Real-time Recognition for accurate subject tracking

With its innovative AI processing unit, the ZV-E1 uses subject form data to accurately recognize movement, providing an improvement of approx. 60% in human eye recognition. Human pose estimation technology recognizes body and head position, so even people wearing helmets or masks, or animals facing away from the camera, can be accurately detected and tracked in real time.

5-axis in-body image stabilization and Dynamic active mode for stable recording

A compact, precision stabilization unit and gyro sensors plus optimized algorithms achieve up to 5.0-step anti-shake compensation. Newly developed Dynamic active Mode features advanced electronic stabilization working in conjunction with the camera’s 5-axis in-body image stabilization system to achieve approximately 30% more effective compensation than the Active Mode provided in previous models. This makes it easier than ever to shoot smooth, stable vlog footage while moving around for bold, dynamic expression.

Framing Stabilizer maintains a constant subject position within the frame

The Framing Stabilizer feature automatically keeps the subject's position in the frame constant, which can be particularly useful when walking alongside the subject. Advanced AI-based subject recognition technology works with the camera's Dynamic active Mode image stabilization to reliably keep the subject in the frame even while in motion during handheld shooting.

Ai-based Auto Framing automatically adjusts the framing to highlight your subject

Using AI-based subject recognition technology, the Auto Framing feature automatically crops the frame to keep the subject in a prominent position when shooting movies. Even though the camera is stationary, framing is continually adjusted so that recorded footage looks as if the subject was being followed by an experienced operator. In addition to the camera automatically recognizing a subject and initializing tracking, any other subject can be selected for tracking by touching it on the camera’s monitor or the Creators' App on a smartphone.

Multiple Face Recognition automatically optimizes the depth of field for selfies or groups

AI-based subject recognition determines the number of faces in the frame and automatically adjusts focus and aperture when recording selfies or group portraits. This feature can continuously adjust the aperture for the depth of field required to keep all faces in focus while minimizing the depth of field if all faces are at the same distance – or only one face is in the frame. This ensures accurate focus and full use of the camera’s artistic bokeh even when several people are entering or leaving a scene.

Picture Profile with support for imported LUT files for monitoring and recording

Custom user LUT files (.cube format) can be imported into the camera and assigned to Picture Profiles. This makes it easy to use LUTs for monitoring while shooting and to create specific looks when shooting in modes other than preset looks.

Intelligent 3 Capsule internal microphone with variable directivity

The ZV-E1 features a high-performance 3-capsule microphone with variable directivity that is capable of picking up clear audio in outdoor situations where wind and environmental noise can be a problem. The microphone is designed to clearly capture the voice of your main subject and depending on your shoot you can set the microphone's directivity to Front, Rear, All Directions. In Auto mode, [Front] or [All Directions] directivity is automatically selected according to the current subject recognition and tracking status.
