Sony ZV-1 – The Best Vlogging Camera

The Sony ZV-1 camera, launched by the famous camera manufacturer Sony, was designed with camera users in mind. Sony calls its new model as a content creator. The ZV-1 is designed with a 1-inch Type 20MP stacked SIMOS sensor and 24-70 (F1.8-2.8) lens. Another attractive feature is the fully rotating touch screen. The company hopes that selfie-style behaviour will be of interest to smartphone users.

Auto focus and Microphone

Sony Camera is built with many features that make it easy to vlogging. One of the strengths of the ZV-1 is Sony’s sleek autofocus system. Sony’s top-notch cameras, and the company’s own eye-AF, or eye-focusing approach, has blown into ZV-1 with the full effect. When you’re talking to a group of people, you don’t have to remember where the camera’s focus is. Directional microphones with three capsules mounted on the top of the camera may be superior in many cases. If you are shooting video from a road where carts are going, the microphone will capture the sound of vehicles. But the advantage of this directional microphone is that when the camera and mic direction are turned against the road, the noise of the vehicles is captured.

Background Defocus

Most smartphone cameras now don’t have the ability to focus on the background when shooting video. (It is possible in Still.) This highlights the importance of the subject. Sony’s ZV-1’s Background Defocus will automatically focus on the user or subject, rather than focusing on the background objects and people. Another important feature is the focus mode on the object closest to the camera.

Consider this: Suppose you are a vlogger who introduces various products. You decide to introduce a new smartphone. The camera is focused on your face. If the phone is in front of your face, the focus does not have to fall into it. Many bloggers are addressing this issue by keeping a close eye on them nowadays. However, using the feature in ZV-1 will make it easier to focus on what is closest. A button for this purpose is placed on the top of the camera.

Video Recording

Those who are most likely to buy this camera will most likely be listening to video recording. ZV-1 can record 4K and UHD video up to 30p per second. At 1080p, you can record 120p per second. If the video is upscale then the camera will get 960p. ZV-1 has no view-finder. There is no headphone socket. But you can put an external microphone in its multi-accessory hotshoe.

 Sony ZV-1 Final Verdict

ZV-1 is clearly aimed at bloggers and content creators. Sony’s RX100V (A) is a little modified by the hardware of the ZV-1.The RX 100V (A) is meant to run from behind the camera (as with any traditional camera), while the ZV-1 is meant to run from the front of the camera. However, it is also not clear that the RX100 has been introduced in the series. If you’re interested in photography and want to buy a compact camera, consider the RX 100 series. However, video shooting is important, and if you want to take a photo occasionally, ZV-1 will be considered.

ZV-1 is aimed at those who want to create content on platforms like YouTube. Another thing is that it is likely to be a favourite with smartphone users. For those who don’t want to know the intricacies of photography but want good footage, the new model may be useful. It is generally believed that ZV-1 is the minimum guaranteed, point-and-shoot vlogging camera that can be purchased.


ZV-1 is priced at $ 799.
