Vari-angle LCD screen, for selfie shooting with confidence
The flip-out LCD screen lets you check your framing for vlogs and selfies without the view being restricted by accessories like microphones. The touch panel control makes intuitive adjustment of focus, shutter, and other settings simple, even during selfie shooting.

Directional three-capsule mic and a bundled wind screen
Record your voice clearly, even in a crowd, with the built-in three-capsule microphone. The unique design and structure uses spatial filtering to capture clear audio in front of the camera with fewer distracting ambient sounds. The included wind screen can also be attached to shoot outdoors, even in windy conditions, with confidence.

Optimized for easy and natural selfies
The ZV-1 is designed for quick and easy vlogging, with an ergonomic grip for stable selfie shooting, and a bright recording lamp so you'll never forget to hit record again.

Beautiful and natural skin tones for everyone
Sony's enhanced color science ensures lively, natural imagery and is especially strong across the diverse range of skin tones. It is available for both movie and still image capture, and is supported with a Soft Skin option to smooth blemishes.

High image quality and easy advanced effects
Despite its pocket-friendly design, the ZV-1 is equipped with a large 1.0-type Exmor RSTM CMOS sensor, for high-quality images even in dim or challenging lighting conditions. In addition, the large sensor delivers professional-looking images, with a blurred background bokeh, along with high-speed data readout for stunning 4K and super slow motion video capture

Compatible with all-in-one Bluetooth® grips
The ZV-1 is compatible with our range of shooting grips, including the GP-VPT2BT with Bluetooth® wireless technology, for easy remote control of recording, zoom, and even assignable custom controls, without cables. The ideal accessory for vlogging, our grips offer stable and flexible shooting, and also expand into a mini tripod for compact, hands-free capture anywhere. 

Quickly shift focus between subjects
The high-performance focal plane phase-detection AF sensor enables high-speed and high-precision focusing with Fast Hybrid AF. The sensor uses 315 phase-detection focusing points across a full 65% of the screen area to quickly switch between subjects without hunting. When taking a selfie, the camera can switch focus with just a touch from your face to the background and back again, so sharp and accurate focus comes easy.

Beautiful defocused background bokeh, with ease
Capture expressive selfies with the professional look of a soft-focus background. The unique Bokeh Switch (C1 button) bypasses all the complexity of exposure balancing and depth-of-field control, and replaces it with a single button. Simply press to switch between having everything in focus, or blurring the background to expertly feature your subject.

Leave the focusing work to the camera with Real-time Tracking
Just turn your face to the camera, and the camera will recognize color, patterns (brightness), subject distance (depth) and face/eye information and automatically snap into precise focus tracking. In addition, when the camera recognizes eyes, faces, or subjects, a frame is displayed on each target so you can make sure that the subject is in focus and shoot without worrying.

Make your reviews stand out with Product Showcase Setting
Take your product reviews to a new level of professionalism with the Product Showcase Setting, for fast and precise focus transitions from you to your featured product. The C2 custom button activates Product Showcase Setting by default, deprioritizing your face for focusing and widening the field of view. Simply holding a product up in front of the camera will switch the focus point from your face, so there's no more autofocus frustration and you can efficiently shoot video reviews with ease.

Smart auto-exposure (AE) transitions, optimized for faces
The kind of erratic, in-the-moment shooting that makes for compelling vlogging also presents a huge challenge for most cameras. The ZV-1's clever AE transition algorithm, however, makes rapid exposure adjustments even as lighting conditions change dramatically, through shadow and sunlight, indoors and out. And by prioritizing faces, it ensures your video subjects always look their best, even when the lighting is far from ideal.

Powerful image stabilization
Even while walking with the camera, you can get smooth, highly stable imagery thanks to the SteadyShot™ joint optical and electronic stabilization system. It's specifically designed for handheld shots and vlogging with a shooting grip so you'll enjoy the confidence of blur- and shake-free shots. Instead of holding still, you can concentrate fully on your presentation and framing.

Dynamic super slow motion
Capture moments from the decisive to the everyday in epic super slow motion to easily add drama and magic to your videos. With recording frame rates as high as 960fps, almost any moment can be captured, while adjustable playback rates let you slow down the action anywhere from 4x to 40x.

Time-lapse adds cinematic expression to the passage of time
The ZV-1 features an interval shooting mode ideal for creating cinematic time-lapse movies with the aid of our Imaging EdgeTM Desktop PC software. The adjustable shooting interval (from 1–60 seconds) and full manual camera control allows spectacular shots of flowing clouds, streaming headlights and more, across up to 9,999 shots. Add a mobile battery, thanks to the convenient USB power input, and you can capture scenes worry-free for hours at a time.

Attach professional accessories with the MI Shoe
Our unique Multi Interface (MI) Shoe offers incredible flexibility to add lights, microphones and much more. Not only does it support standard cold-shoe accessories and flashes, but the interface also allows you to add high-performance audio adaptors such as the ECM-XYST1M stereo microphone, with power available direct from the camera.

Create artistic imagery with Creative Style and Picture Effect
With Creative Style and Picture Effect settings, the ZV-1 offers a wide range of looks to add interest and individuality to your videos. Creative Style let you adjust image parameters like contrast and color, while Picture Effect adds amazing new character to your images, including a chic monochrome and a charming miniature effect.

Send videos to your smartphone anywhere with Imaging Edge Mobile
You shouldn't need to wait until you're in front of your PC to share your video and stills with the world. Imaging Edge Mobile20, free for Android and iOS devices, lets you remotely view and control your ZV-1, and wirelessly backup and transfer images to your smartphone even with the camera turned off. With Imaging Edge Mobile your images can be shared from anywhere, without needing to suffer the compromised image quality of your phone camera.

High quality 20.1 MP still image capture
Capture high-quality still images thanks to the 1.0-type Exmor RS CMOS sensor and ZEISS® 24–70 mm lens. The large sensor and wide F1.8–2.8 aperture lens, along with the latest-generation BIONZ X™ processor, deliver professional-quality images—with exceptional performance even in low light, and stunning background bokeh for portraits.

Vertical video tagging for easy sharing
The ZV-1 can add meta tags to vertically recorded video, allowing immediate uploading to mobile-friendly platforms — no PC rotation or cropping required.

Intuitive touch operation
The ZV-1's touch screen makes selection of focus and tracking points, as well as other settings simple, even with the display flipped for selfies and vlogging — no more fumbling behind the camera for dials and navigation sticks.

Movie Edit add-on trims movies and extends image stabilization
Get your shots social-media ready right in the field with the Movie Edit add-on. Available free for iOS and Android devices alongside Imaging Edge Mobile, this simple app lets you edit your videos, and crop their aspect ratio to suit a range of social platforms—with automatic reframing of your subject. An enhanced image stabilization tool also further suppresses any shake from your videos, for butter-smooth motion.

Shoot 4K video like a pro
Capture all the beauty and detail of the world—and yourself—with 4K (QFHD 3,840 x 2,160) video recording. Thanks to its high-speed sensor LSI, the ZV-1 uses a full-pixel readout, resampling around 1.7x the number of pixels required for 4K, to condense astonishing detail into each and every frame. 

Grab still images from movies
The ZV-1 can capture full-resolution still frames from your recorded movies in-camera—no PC required. Grab highlights out of any of your videos, or save time and share a full package of video and thumbnails directly from the camera.

Built in ND filters for precise exposure control
A built-in neutral-density filter ensures your exposure is always optimal, without throwing out any of the creative intentions in your shutter angle or F-stop. A staple in all professional video environments, the adjustable ND filter lets you capture blurred motion and expressive bokeh where it would otherwise be impossible, such as in daylight conditions up to EV19.

Support for professional movie-recording workflows 
For more demanding productions, the ZV-1 supports a range of movie functions more typically found in professional equipment, including S-Log3 and S-Log2 gamma curves. The wide dynamic range available using these S-Log profiles is perfect for camera matching and minimizing blown-out highlights or lost shadow detail. Additional options for Picture Profile and Creative Style are also available, along with advanced features like Gamma Display Assist, Zebra metering, a Clean HDMI output with Rec Control, timecode, and Proxy recording. There's everything a video professional could need in day-to-day work situations. 

Imaging Edge Desktop
