Full Sony ZV1 specs, images and press text have been leaked on the web ahead of the official announcement.
Sony ZV-1 is made for vloggers and will be officially announced on May 26, 2020.
Sony ZV1 will have a bigger grip and the fully articulating screen on the side. The design generally looks like the company’s RX100 VII model. Check out the full Sony ZV1 press text below.
The Sony ZV-1 is a 20.1MP digital camera specifically designed for vloggers and content creators. It features a 1.0-type stacked CMOS sensor and super-fast AF for high quality images and 4K video. The 24-70mm zoom lens is perfect for both portraits and wide-angle shooting. The Image stabilisation helps to keep your photos and videos blur free. It has an ergonomic, comfortable grip plus a 3-inch vari-angle LCD screen with recording lamp, which makes selfie-shooting very easy.
The ZV-1 is designed around the needs of vloggers and content creators, and focusses on intuitive controls for vlog & video creation. The vari-angle screen ensures selfie-shooting is easy enabling you to check your framing while shooting. The grip provides a comfortable and secure way of holding the camera.
A directional 3-capsule Microphone utilises technology from Sony’s advanced video camera systems to deliver high quality sound capturing performance and noise reduction in full-stereo. In addition, a wind screen that greatly reduces wind noise in outdoor conditions is supplied. A 3.5mm input jack is also onboard in case additional mics need to be added.
Get leading-edge movie AF for vlogging. Developed for the interchangeable-lens camera Alpha series, Real-time Eye AF locks on and tracks subjects with high accuracy and speed. It uses AI-based subject recognition technology to detect eye information in real-time, allowing people’s eyes to be recognised and tracked, even when shooting 4K movies.
Soft Skin Effect enables you to reduce skin wrinkles and marks while ensuring you preserve skin-tones and the sharpness of eyes and mouths. Skin tones are optimised for both movies and stills to deliver ideal subject emphasis when using your vlogging camera for YouTube, Instagram, and other platforms. Finally, an original face priority AE algorithm – detects the face and adjusts the exposure to ensure it is depicted at optimal brightness, even during selfie-shooting scenes with large light-dark changes.
By simply pressing the Bokeh Switch (C1), even without a deep knowledge of cameras and video, you can obtain the blurred background effect. Another simple operation – Product Showcase Setting – enables the focus to shift rapidly from your face to a product or object being held up to the lens without having to hide your face. Easy to use this can be abled by the press of a single button (C2). Perfect for product review videos.
In addition, Sony will have a major product announcement in June 2020 and Sony is going to announce a new full frame E-mount mirrorless camera (probably Sony a7S III) and several new E-mount lenses on that event in June.
