Vlog camera ZV-1
This software update enables high-quality live streaming and online communication.
No experience is necessary to capture great looking videos. The ZV-1 is designed to capture amazing videos of you and your world, without any tricky setup.
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.
With AI 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.
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.
Product Showcase Setting allows you to switch with just a single button press to settings that are perfect for product reviews. It widens the angle of view and switches the focus to the object instantly, so you don't need to wait for the focus to shift, or place your hand behind the product to shift the focus to it.
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.
With a single cable, the ZV-1 can be used as an online communication tool. To use the ZV-1 as an external camera, connect it to a PC or a Sony Xperia™ smartphone via a USB Type-C® cable connection.
You can use the ZV-1 for a high-quality live-streaming. By taking advantage of its 1.0-type sensor, you will get a clean footage even in a dimly lit environment. Also, you can use the Directional Three-Capsule Mic for clear voice recording even while streaming.
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.
The vari-angle LCD touch screen flips out horizontally, making it perfect for selfies and vlogging. Clear of ports, microphones and mounting shoes, it allows for precise framing and fluid operation even while in front of the camera.
Carry professional quality video along in your pocket, with stunning 4K HDR detail and powerful exposure tools for content guaranteed to impress.
