Product Description

Sony ZV-1 compact camera is purpose-built for video content creators and vloggers. A lightweight all-in-one solution, the ZV-1 features a 1-inch stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor with DRAM chip for lightning-speed readout (the same used in the Sony A9, and A9 II). It also sports a ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T lens with 24-70mm full-frame equivalent focal range and bright f/1.8-2.8 aperture.
The ZV-1 is Sony's first compact camera with side-opening vari-angle LCD touchscreen that makes shooting in selfie mode an effortless experience. It also offers in-body image stabilization.
For autofocus in video, Sony ZV-1 supports real-time Eye AF and real-time subject-tracking. There is also a new Face Priority autoexposure (AE) mode, and the ZV-1's color science is optimized for skin tones. These features ensure that the vlogger always looks his/her best.
Audio is essential for a good video, and the ZV-1 features Sony's latest Directional 3-capsule Mic designed for forward-directional audio capture.
Last but not least, the ZV-1 combines optical and electronic stabilization in FHD and improved Optical Steady Shot in 4K, delivering stable image for vlogs.
