If you’re a daily vlogger, then this article is worth your read. With the rapidly growing trend of vlogging, we can simply say Vloggers are not just the vloggers anymore; they’re actually the “Entrepreneurs”. But making THE PERFECT vlog, going back and reliving so many great moments anytime definitely need an ideal device to shoot. Keeping in mind how a few cameras actually serve this need; SONY stepped up to present its invention. Sony presented its new ZV-1 camera, it is basically a vlogging camera to help vloggers get their full-blown media company started. However, Sony has just modified its RX100 model by unwrapping some of its expensive parts and designing it specifically for vlogging.
Not just the vlogging, you can take regular photos with this device and you can simply keep it in your pocket too, the icing on the cake? Sony ZV-1 vlogging camera has countless qualities including its lightweight body, flip-out display, amazing high-quality microphone, mesmerizing image quality, and the list goes on. If you’re thinking to upgrade from a smartphone, purchasing this amazing camera would be your best decision, trust me! It may seem like just a small regular camera, but this tiny thing contains a lot of pro features. This model is basically the fusion of two models, wondering how? Well, on one hand, it contains sensors and smarts of the model RX100 VII, and on the other, it contains a brighter lens and ND filter of RX100 V so you get the better-blurred background.
While unboxing this amazing device here is the list of accessories that you are going to get along – A Microphone Windscreen, Micro USB Cable, Battery, and The Camera. This awesome camera has set its priority to video first and the photograph later, told you this one is a completely Vlog specific camera. Wait, I forgot to tell you the most important thing, you can now protect your camera screen by flipping it the opposite way. Sony ZV-1 has a 3.5mm jack input for the audio, micro USB port, and HDMI out.
The battery used by this camera is NP-BX 1, but again if you’re a fan of RX 100 series and have used them, then you are in luck. Oh yes! its record button is right exactly where it should be, making it so easy to record and click. Having 20.1-megapixel sensors and fixed 24-0mm f/1.8- 2.8mm lens prove it’s not as adaptable as a mirrorless camera but apart from that, it’s serving the purpose of vlogging so vloggers should be cool with it, right? The most amazing feature you are going to find in this camera is its super-quality built-in microphone.
Well, cutting down its price to $800 (Check Price) definitely means compromising many things. Let’s have a look:
- Although its 24-70mm lens is sharp, it needs to be wider
- Sony ZV-1 lacks a true torch
- Also, it needs display and a headphone port
Anyway, keeping the cons aside, if you have prepared a checklist for the things you have been looking at in a vlogging camera, I’m sure Sony ZV-1 camera has checked almost every single one of those boxes.
