Sony's Vlog Camera ZV-1 - designed for vlogging and content creation - provides professional image quality with its 1.0-type stacked CMOS sensor.

The vari-angle LCD screen combined with the newly added grip to the body provides safe and solid holding, making selfie-shooting easy. Soft Skin Effect allows for natural skin tones and optimised brightness for faces. A directional 3-capsule mic and wind shield is supplied with this camera for recording high sound quality.

The ZV-1 vlog camera comes with a Product Showcase Setting for perfect product review videos and Bokeh Switch for easy background blur control, and can be used with Sony's Imaging Edge Webcam Software for Livestreaming. Also featuring Sony's innovative Real-time Eye AF technology, the ZV-1 camera locks on and tracks people's eyes, even when shooting 4K movies.

With the vari-angle screen, selfie-shooting is easy on the ZV-1, and you can check the framing while shooting. Because it is side-opening, it doesn't interfere with an external mic attached to the Multi Interface Shoe when shooting selfies. The newly added grip to the body provides safe and solid holding, and for selfies, you can comfortably hold the grip using your thumb. A recording lamp also features on the front face of the body - the lamp glows while recording, providing an at-a-glance indication of movie recording and eliminating the possibility of accidentally failing to record.

Soft Skin Effect is effective on this ZV-1 premium camera, even when movie shooting. The Soft Skin Effect reduces skin wrinkles and marks while preserving the sharpness of eyes and mouths, and can be selected from the four settings OFF / LO / MID / HI according to your desired level of smooth skin effect. In addition, based on wide-ranging investigations of skin tones, hues are reproduced that make the subject look healthy and natural, irrespective of age, gender, or ethnicity. Skin tones are optimised for both movies and stills to deliver ideal subject emphasis when using your vlogging camera for YouTube, Instagram, and other platforms. Finally, an original face priority AE algorithm - capable of rapid AE transitions - detects the face and adjusts the exposure to ensure it is depicted at optimal brightness, even during selfie-shooting scenes with large light-dark changes. 

The high sound quality recording technology nurtured on Sony's advanced video camera models is deployed on the Vlog Camera ZV-1. Improved sound gathering performance and noise reduction are realised by 3 mic capsules for clear sound recording at high density. Recorded sound is of high quality - close to the original - with fantastic stereo impression. In addition, a genuine wind screen that greatly reduces wind noise is supplied. Attaching this wind screen to the MI shoe reduces noise in windy outdoor conditions to allow clear recording of the speaker's voice.

By simply pressing the Bokeh Switch (C1), a fully-open or F5.6 can be switched on, so even without a deep knowledge of cameras and video, you can obtain the blurred background effect you desire on this Sony camera. Another simple operation - Product Showcase Setting - enables the focus to shift rapidly from your face to a product. This is assigned by default to the C2 custom button, so the appropriate settings can be recalled and applied with just one touch for convenient creation of product review videos.

Get leading-edge movie AF for vlogging! Developed for the interchangeable-lens camera Alpha series, Real-time Eye AF locks on and tracks subjects with high accuracy and speed. It uses AI-based subject recognition technology to detect eye information in real-time, allowing people’s eyes to be recognised and tracked, even when shooting 4K movies.
