Sony ZV-1 review

 

Sony's after the vloggers

Great stills, video, and audio ; ND filter ; No record time limit

Touch screen limitations ; Battery/card inaccessible if mounted ; Narrow field-of-view

After reviewing it, we bought one for our on-the-go video… ‘nuff said

Sony ZV-1 review: Vlogging champ

 

Designed with vloggers in mind, this compact camera has great video and sound tools. Is it the camera to up your YouTube game?

180-degree flip-out screen ; Video processing is impressive ; Fast autofocus and real-time tracking ; Great sound recording potential

Battery life could be better ; No viewfinder ; Battery/SD card door is inconvenient for tripod use ; Short zoom range

Sony's latest camera is nimble, lightweight and powerful. With its advanced processing capabilities, fast auto focus and real-time tracking combined with the impressively clear audio capture and the useful flip-out screen, it really is a great option...

Sony ZV-1 Review

 

The Sony ZV-1 is designed to be the perfect compact camera for vloggers, with 4K video recording, a vari-angle screen that faces the front, and a number of features specifically for vloggers. Let's find out how it performs.

Sony ZV-1 Review

 

Compact form factor ; Flip-out touch screen ; Bright, sharp zoom lens ; Excellent in-camera audio ; External mic and flash support ; 4K video capture

A wider-angle lens would be welcome ; Limited touch features ; Face detection struggles when wearing protective mask ; Underwhelming battery life ; No in-camera flash

The Sony ZV-1 is a pocketable camera with strong still image quality and features geared specifically toward vloggers.

Sony ZV-1 review

 

How often do we see a genuinely new camera? The Sony ZV-1 isn't just new, it's designed specifically for its vlogging audience

Vari-angle rear screen ; Clip on wind shield ; Brilliantly fast AF

Minimum focus distance changes with zoom ; Stabilization seems pretty jerky ; Why a 3:2 screen and not 16:9?

Some might dismiss the ZV-1 as yet another Sony RX100 variant, but it’s much more than that. The sensor and lens might be familiar, but the body, the controls, the audio and the rear screen are all new and different and optimised brilliantly for vlogging.
