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.
