Overview

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.

Let the camera catch your eye

With AI2 technology you can rely on the auto focus 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.

Shoot great video, wherever you go

The ZV-1 is built to get great shots while you’re moving. With amazing image stabilization, you can shoot smooth video when walking and, as the light goes from shadow to sun or outdoors to in, the automatic exposure (AE) tracks faces and makes sure they always appear well-lit.

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. 

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 it

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.

Use your favourite mic for the sound you want

With a microphone jack and MI shoe, you can pick from your choice of mics to get exactly the sound you want.

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.

Recreate the world in your image

The ZV-1 is designed to bring together simplicity and power, opening up creative opportunities as wide as your imagination.

Dynamic video through slow motion

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 mode automatically captures sequences of images from 1–60 seconds apart, which can be used to create cinematic time-lapse videos 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 24–70 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.
