Sony ZV-1 Digital Camera
Built to vlog
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.
Know at a glance whether you're recording
It’s easy to know when you’re recording with a clear recording lamp on the front of the camera – and it’s easy to switch off if you prefer. You’ll never accidentally forget to hit the record button again.
Optimised grip for selfies
The deeper, shaped grip is more comfortable for conventional shooting, and offers a stable handhold to reduce fatigue for vlogging or selfie shots.
Works with wireless control grips
The ZV-1 is compatible with the Sony Bluetooth® wireless shooting grip GP-VPT2BT, which offers cable-free control of zoom, recording and more, and expands into a mini-tripod for stable hands-free shots.
Shoot like a pro
Carry professional quality video along in your pocket, with stunning 4K HDR detail and powerful exposure tools for content guaranteed to impress.
Professional 4K11 HDR12 movie functions
The ZV-1 records immensely detailed 4K HDR video through 1.7x pixel resampling so you can capture reality without any compromise.
Built-in ND filter
A Neutral Density (ND) filter opens creative possibilities via video exposure control, enhancing depth-of-field and enabling magical slow-shutter portrayal of water, light and motion.
Designed for creators to love
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.
Beautiful and natural skin tones for everyone
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.
Background bokeh for a professional touch
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.
Let the camera catch your eye
With AI1 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.
Fast and precise focus transitions
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.
Pro-quality bokeh control with one touch
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, ideal for product review videos
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 it2.
Shoot great video, wherever you go
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.
Designed for even better audio
You can capture clear vocals even when shooting in a crowd. The camera’s unique directional 3-capsule mic gathers clear sound from in front of the camera, ideal for movie shooting.
Wind screen for outdoor shooting
The supplied wind screen reduces wind noise for worry-free outdoor shooting. As well as achieving premium sound quality, that also means you’ll spend less time re-shooting and editing footage affected by wind noise.
Dynamic video through slow motion3
Make every movement more cinematic with Super Slow Motion video, capturing the most fleeting of moments for playback at up to 40x slower than real time.
Time-lapse for that cinematic effect
Interval shooting mode4 automatically captures sequences of images from 1 – 60 seconds apart, from which cinematic time lapse videos can be created on a PC, where clouds flow past like water and whole days pass in seconds.
Take amazing pictures as well as video
The ZV-1 has everything you need to capture images that really shine in your timeline and video thumbnails. The pin-sharp ZEISS® 24-70mm5 lens focuses light to a large 1.0-type Exmor RS™ CMOS image sensor, with it all coming together in the powerful BIONZ X™ image processor.
Instantly transfer movies to your smartphone
The free Imaging EdgeTM Mobile app for iOS and Android6 lets you simply transfer, edit and upload images shot on the ZV-1 instantly to social media platforms, from wherever you are7.
A perfect fit for any platform
Use the Movie Edit add-on6 to apply enhanced stabilisation for especially shaky shots8, or reframe and crop video to suit popular social media aspect ratios.
Easily shoot vertical-position movies9 for mobile
With automatic tagging of vertically oriented videos10, you can upload content custom-made for smartphone screens9.
