Key Features

Quickly shift focus between subjects

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

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.

Make your reviews stand out with Product Showcase Setting

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, deprioritising 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.

Powerful image stabilisation

Powerful image stabilisation

Even while walking with the camera, you can get smooth, highly stable imagery thanks to the SteadyShot joint optical and electronic stabilisation 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.

Smart auto-exposure (AE) transitions, optimised for faces

Smart auto-exposure (AE) transitions, optimised 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 prioritising faces, it ensures your video subjects always look their best, even when the lighting is far from ideal.

Attach professional accessories with the MI Shoe

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.

Dynamic super slow motion

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

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.

High quality 20.1MP still image capture

High quality 20.1MP still image capture

Capture high-quality still images thanks to the 1.0-type Exmor RS CMOS sensor and ZEISS 24-70mm 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.

Create artistic imagery with Creative Style and Picture Effect

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 video. Creative Style let you adjust image parameters like contrast and colour, while Picture Effect adds amazing new character to your images, including a chic monochrome and a charming miniature effect, among others.

Shoot 4K video like a pro

Shoot 4K video like a pro

Capture all the beauty and detail of the world-and yourself-with 4K (QFHD 3840 x 2160) 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.

Support for professional movie-recording workflows

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 minimising 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.

Built in ND filters for precise exposure control

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.

Grab still images from movies

Grab still images from movies
