Time has entered 2020, riding on the spring breeze of 5G, video content and webcasting are popular. Sony also recently launched a new portable camera ZV-1 for Vlog video shooting. Today we will talk to you about this product and the related experience.
Let’s take a look The function of this machine. The first is the microphone: Unlike any camera in the past, the built-in microphone on the Sony ZV-1 uses a 3-capsule design, which is directional, which means that the sound directly in front of the lens has additional enhancements, while it is used in other directions. The noise has been weakened. And ZV-1 is equipped with a windshield, which can easily reduce noise. In terms of sound effects, the microphone on the Sony ZV-1 is almost the best built-in microphone I have ever seen. Vlog must be sufficient for daily shooting. Although for professional Vlog bloggers, it must be an external gun microphone or small bee. But if you’re like me, you only shoot short videos occasionally, and don’t decide whether to buy a professional microphone that costs several thousand yuan, then the built-in microphone ZV-1 is definitely enough for you to get started.
In addition, compared to other video cameras or Say it is a Vlog camera, the big advantage is that it uses a large aperture zoom lens, equivalent to about 24-70mm, aperture F1.8-F2.8, which allows us to switch between different perspectives. At the same time, CMOS with a 1-inch bottom, whether it is blur or night scene performance, also performs better than mobile devices.
In terms of angle of view, the ZV-1 lens is equivalent to approximately 24mm, directly holding the camera body to shoot Vlog is certainly not wide enough, but fortunately, with the original handle, this problem can be greatly improved.
or the kind of third-party extension rods and gimbals , You can extend the camera farther, in short, as long as you want to solve it, there is always a solution.
In terms of anti-shake, Sony has three different modes suitable for each. Different scenarios. Turning off anti-shake is suitable for shooting with a tripod and handheld gimbal; standard anti-shake is suitable for static or moving lens shooting that we hold, but does not move by itself; and enhanced anti-shake is more suitable for this Vlog type video shooting while walking. It uses an optical + electronic hybrid anti-shake mode, so the picture will be cropped. As we said before, you can use an extension rod appropriately, or add a small pan/tilt to solve this problem.

Next, let’s talk about the two custom buttons on the Sony ZV-1. The C1 button allows us to quickly turn on/off the background blur by adjusting the aperture size. For novice users who don’t know what aperture, shutter, and sensitivity are, they can get the desired effect intuitively, but it is very user-friendly.
Besides, the C2 button on the Sony ZV-1 The product display function can be opened at any time. After opening, we take any product in front of the lens, ZV-1 will give priority to focusing on the product, after taking it away, it will automatically focus on the broadcaster. The focusing process is quick and smooth. At present, it seems that there is no slot, which is very suitable for e-commerce sellers to shoot and display videos, or to use live broadcast. At present, the focus function of this product is still Sony’s exclusive technology, and there is still a long way to go. I even feel that it is worthwhile to buy the ZV-1 for this function alone.
In terms of skin tone performance, ZV-1 should be said to have made significant progress Yes, compared to previous models, the skin is obviously fairer. The fuselage has three gears of beautification options. You can focus on the treatment of the model’s eye bags. The effect is quite obvious. But after all, Sony is still a traditional Japanese manufacturer, and its beauty is still relatively conservative. Of course, on the other hand, this also takes into account the requirements of live broadcast for color accuracy. After all, it looks like a girl’s lipstick or a boy’s car. There are still certain requirements for accurate color reproduction
In addition, Sony ZV-1 has strengthened the metering of faces in video shooting. From indoor to outdoor, while the external light environment undergoes significant changes, the model’s face in the picture captured by the ZV-1 can always maintain accurate exposure, which is undoubtedly a great help for the improvement of video perception. In terms of other specifications, Sony ZV-1 supports 120-frame upgrade at 1080P and 1000-frame upgrade at reduced resolution. Others such as built-in ND, Slog-3, and HLG are also readily available. For such a small machine, it should be said that it provides enough professional configuration.
as a model In addition to a high-end portable product with a 1-inch CMOS sensor, the Sony ZV-1 has a matte touch on the surface of the body, and there is a raised handle design on the right side, which can provide a good grip.
On the screen, Sony finally gave a convenient selfie framing this time The horizontal flip screen design makes it more convenient to shoot high and low angles. It is worth mentioning that the flip screen of this camera can also control the switch of the machine. It is very convenient to turn on the screen and turn it off when closed.
On the top of the fuselage, there are a hot shoe interface and a digital It’s hard to see on the camera, a large condenser microphone, which comes with a microphone windproof sweater, which is fixed to the body by a hot shoe, so you don’t have to worry about falling when you use it. The specific effect, directivity, and windproof effect will be discussed later.
The left side of the fuselage is the HDMI interface and the Micro USB interface. As well as the microphone input interface, if the built-in microphone in the fuselage is not enough for you, you can also choose to connect a professional gun microphone or bee. The Micro USB of the fuselage is responsible for data transmission, shutter cable access, and supports USB charging and power supply. For videos and delays that need to be shot for a long time, you can use a power bank to extend the battery life.
At the bottom of the fuselage, there is a UHS-II high-speed in the battery compartment The card slot and a small battery for the RX100 series are definitely not enough for video shooting. Fortunately, the machine supports USB charging and power supply. Specifically, whether it is charged with use or a few more batteries, Everyone should choose according to their needs.
In terms of buttons on the body, except for the common button arrangement of Sony cameras In addition, the ZV-1 video recording button is placed next to the shutter button for easy operation. There is a custom C1 button on the top of the camera, which controls the background blur through the aperture, and a C2 button on the back, which is responsible for switching the product display focusing function. It should be said that the two custom buttons on this ZV-1 are probably the most useful two custom buttons on the camera I have seen. They are quite practical, and it is almost hard to think of anything more than this. For the appropriate setting. We will look at the experience of these two functions in detail later.
In the design, this machine has some careful thoughts, like It is the working indicator on the front, which allows us to confirm the working status of the camera in real time when taking selfies. In addition to the original bluetooth handle zoom, take pictures, start and stop recording, there is also a C1 custom button, which can also be used to switch the background blur with one button.
In summary, from this ZV-1, let’s see After a lot of Sony’s careful thoughts, the horizontal flip screen, the built-in large-area microphone, two very reasonable custom keys, and the handle highly matched with the product. It can be seen that this is a product that Sony is working hard on.
The last is the purchase recommendation In terms of link, compared to the 5,999 package version, we recommend everyone to buy the 5,999 yuan package version. In addition to the standard body, there is an original Bluetooth handle and an additional original battery. The extra 800 yuan is obviously worth it.
