The latest compact camera from Sony designed for vloggers, utilizes a 12-megapixel sensor and a range of AI-based features.
Sony has introduced a new full-frame camera called ZV-E1, specifically for content creators. The Japanese company says it has developed the capabilities of this camera based on user feedback and strives to provide the best possible tools for vloggers.
According to Petapixel, ZV-E1 is primarily a camera focused on videography. This camera has a full-frame 12-megapixel sensor (similar to the Alpha 7S III camera) and achieves a 15-step dynamic range. According to Sony, the maximum sensor ISO is 409,600. This camera records 4K videos at 120 frames per second and Full HD videos at 240 frames per second and is equipped with a touch LCD display.
The ZV-E1 is considered the smallest full-frame camera equipped with IBIS (in-body stabilization system). The Sigma FP has smaller dimensions but does not use IBIS. The new compact Sony camera weighs only 483 grams including the battery and ‘memory card’ and its dimensions reach 121 x 71.9 x 54.3 millimeters.
The ZV-E1 is equipped with an Exmor R (BSI CMOS) sensor and uses the BIONZ XR image processing engine. The newest Sony camera also has an artificial intelligence processing unit to provide autofocus with subject detection. Artificial intelligence is also useful for video recording.
The Sony ZV-E1 camera is equipped with a five-axis in-body stabilization system and uses Dynamic Active Mode (AI-based), Framing Stabilizer, and Auto Framing. Sony says the IBIS system in its new camera works 30% better than before.
Pre-order for the Sony ZV-E1 camera starts from tomorrow. This product costs $2,200 (body only) and is offered with a special kit including a 60-28mm lens for $2,500.
