Featuring a side flip-out 3.0" touchscreen and a directional 3-capsule microphone that are perfect for front-facing recording, the Sony ZV-1 also caters to this crowd with the Product Showcase setting, Background Defocus function, Soft Skin Effect, and Face Priority Auto-Exposure.

Despite its sleek and lightweight design, the ZV-1 is also characterized by its large right-hand grip that is ideal for one-handed recording in conjunction with a front tally lamp, larger REC button on the top plate, and a Multi Interface Shoe for attaching accessories. 

An impressive Zeiss 24-70mm (35mm equivalent) standard zoom lens, with a bright f/1.8-2.8 maximum aperture range, bestows it with a versatile focal range. And the camera also features Active SteadyShot image stabilization, to help steady footage and reduce the appearance of camera shake.
