Sony Announces the ZV-1: A Compact 4K Vlogging Camera With Fully Articulating Screen

Sony has just announced the launch of the ZV-1, a compact camera that’s ready for vlogging out of the box.

The ZV-1, available for pre-order for $748 and due to ship on June 11, is a lightweight, compact camera featuring a one-inch sensor and a fixed 24-70mm equivalent lens, complete with optical and digital stabilization, and capable of shooting 4K at up to 30 fps.

The major specifications:

  • 20.1MP 1″ Exmor RS BSI CMOS Sensor
  • ZEISS 24-70mm-equivalent f/1.8-2.8 Lens
  • UHD 4K30p Video with HLG and S-Log3 Gammas
  • 3.0″ Side Flip-Out Touchscreen LCD

Notably, the LCD touchscreen articulates fully to the side. Other features include a built-in ND filter, eye-detect and face-detect autofocus, and a 3.5mm microphone jack.

The camera seems to blend the compact size of the RX100 III — as well as the same lens — but stealing many of the powerful video features of the a6100 and a6600.
