ZV-1 Vlog Camera
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.
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.
Designed for even better audio
You can capture clear vocals even when shooting in a crowd. The camera’s unique directional three-capsule mic gathers clear sound from in front of the camera, ideal for movie shooting.
High-quality video stream
You can use the ZV-1 for high-quality live-streaming. By taking advantage of its one-inch sensor, you will get clean footage even in a dimly lit environment. Also, you can use the Directional Three-Capsule Mic for clear voice recording even while streaming.
Simple video stream
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.
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 24–70 mm 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.
Express yourself with creative effects
Picture Effects and Creative Styles allow for near-limitless visual possibilities — from simple monochrome and partial colour effects, right through to complex miniature effects.
Shoot then share easily
There’s no longer a need to compromise your images with your smartphone camera just to share content quickly. The ZV-1 delivers both stunning images and seamless connectivity, for better and easier posting.
Instantly transfer movies to your smartphone
The free Imaging Edge Mobile app for iOS and Android lets you simply transfer, edit and upload images shot on the ZV-1 instantly to social media platforms, from wherever you are.
A perfect fit for any platform
Use the Movie Edit add-on to apply enhanced stabilization for especially shaky shots, or reframe and crop video to suit popular social media aspect ratios.
Easily shoot vertical-position movies for mobile
With automatic tagging of vertically oriented videos, you can upload content custom-made for smartphone screens.
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.
See yourself at your best
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.
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.
Optimized 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 4K HDR movie functions
The ZV-1 records immensely detailed 4K HDR video through 1.7x pixel resampling so you can capture reality without any compromise.
S-Log gamma for professional workflows
S-Log2 and S-Log3 gamma controls are available for camera matching and flexibility in colour grading, along with a range of picture profile settings to create your perfect aesthetic.
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.
Content creation is made simple
Content creation is made simple with the Sony ACCVC1 Vlogger Accessory Kit which includes a wireless Bluetooth grip that conveniently converts into a small tripod (GP-VPT2BT) and 64GB UHS-II SD Card (SF-E64/T1) with fast write speeds. The GP-VPT2BT Bluetooth grip is compatible with many Sony cameras including the ZV-1 Camera for Content Creators and Vloggers.
