Sony Electronics Inc. has announced a new pocket-sized digital camera ZV-1 designed for content creators and vloggers. The ZV-1 combines easy-to-use features with imaging technology, making this the perfect tool for any content creator at all skill levels. The camera will be available in Bahrain in August.
The ZV-1 features a 1.0-type stacked Exmor RS CMOS image sensor with DRAM chip and 24-70mmi F1.8-2.8 ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T large-aperture lens creating background bokeh (background blur), allowing the subject to stand out from the background.
The camera locks on to and tracks subjects with high accuracy and speed using Sony’s autofocus system. The ZV-1 also includes the BIONZ X image processor with front-end LSI delivering high resolution as well as low noise for superior image quality. It also combines this imaging technology with versatile audio options.
The ZV-1 is Sony’s first compact camera with a side-opening Vari-angle LCD screen, making it easier to compose shots in selfie mode while connecting external audio accessories. To meet any video need, the ZV-1 contains advanced video features including 4K movie recording and in-body image stabilisation.
Commenting on the new camera, Neal Manowitz, Deputy President of Imaging Product and Solutions Americas at Sony Electronics, said: “Sony’s new ZV-1 was purpose-built to meet the needs and demands of today’s video creators. We are always listening to our customers, and this camera is the result of direct feedback from our extended community. Featuring an innovative design plus many new technologies, settings and modes, it will allow creators to make content in ways they have never been able to before.”
The ZV-1 will be available in June 2020 for a special introductory price of approximately $749 through June 28, 2020. After that, the price will increase to approximately $799.
Sony will also be introducing a Vloggerbundle Kit, which includes a GP-VPT2BT shooting grip with a wireless remote commander and 64GB ultra high-speed media card.
