The Sony ZV-1 takes its design cue from the popular Sony RX100 series and packs in quite a bit of features too. It is equipped with a 20MP 1-inch sensor, together with a fast 24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 lens. There’s 4K recording at up to 30fps will full pixel readout available, as well as 1080p recording at up to 120fps. Apart from that, the sensor also allows for great background bokeh and blurring when focusing on a subject.

The Sony ZV-1 has Face Priority auto-exposure (AE) function with eye-tracking autofocus (AF). This allows it to continuously track the subject’s face throughout the entire recording. It can then automatically adjust the correct exposure for different faces even when the vlogger is walking through different lighting scenarios. Apart from that, the camera also has the “background defocus” feature that sets the aperture to its widest setting, giving you that nice blurry bokeh background when all the focus is on the vlogger.

That being said, the camera itself isn’t limited to entirely vlogging functionality. On board, you will also find real-time AF tracking, photo taking with shooting speeds of up to 20fps with AF and AE activated simultaneously. Focusing can be done easier with touch-focus control on the vari-angle LCD display. There’s also both optical and electronic image stabilisation that removes screen shakes or “bobbing” when recording.

In the audio department, the Sony ZV-1 has a built-in 3-capsule microphone complete with noise reduction functions. According to Sony, the camera is capable of recording superior audio quality compared to the built-in mics found on its other mirrorless or DSLR cameras. Not only that, the Sony ZV-1 also has a windscreen accessory that covers the microphone. This helps to further reduce noise and muffle wind noise. There’s also a 3.5mm external microphone port and a micro HDMI port.

The camera weighs approximately 249g, making it light and portable enough for vloggers. There’s also a grip accessory (sold separately) that gives the vlogger quick access to certain camera controls, right from the grip itself.
