With this, Sony seems to be tapping on to a market for those who have been sitting at homes and are making videos.
A few weeks ago, Sony launched its new pocket-sized called the ZV-1, claiming it to be a camera made specifically for vloggers. However, that camera has now been launched in India. It is priced at ₹77,990 and will be available online exclusively via Amazon India. You can get your hands on this product starting August 6. With this, Sony seems to be tapping on to a market for those who have been sitting at homes and are making videos.
Sony ZV-1 weighs 294 grams and is also Sony’s first compact camera with a flip-out, tiltable LCD screen. You get a MI (Multi Interface) Shoe to attach external microphones without using a mounting bracket. While recording a video in the HD (Active mode), the camera uses both optical and electronic stabilization methods to deliver up to 11 times more stable video. However, while shooting a 4K video using Optical SteadyShot (Active mode), the stabilisation is said to improve 8 times, claims Sony.
The Sony ZV-1 has a 1.0-type stacked Exmor RS CMOS image sensor with DRAM chip and 24-70mm F1.8-2.8 ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T large-aperture lens. Besides subject tracking and fast autofocus, it also includes the latest-generation BIONZ X image processor with front-end LSI, both of which work in tandem to deliver images with low noise. Adding to this is the easy switching between two modes of background bokeh while recording a video.
As for the audio, the compact camera has Sony’s latest Directional 3-capsule Mic, made specially for selfie mode. It is possible to use the standard 3.5mm mic jack and MI Shoe.
