DPReview has published their full in-depth Sony ZV-1 review and test results. According to the review, the Sony ZV-1 camera achieved an impressive 85% overall score and Gold Award from the experts at DPReview.
Sony ZV-1 is built around a 1″-type 20MP stacked CMOS sensor and the 24-70mm equiv. F1.8-2.8 lens from the RX100 III, IV and VA, but it uses a fully articulating touchscreen and reworked ergonomics to allow for selfie-style operation.
Sony ZV-1 Key Features:
- 20.1MP 1″ Exmor RS BSI CMOS Sensor
- ZEISS 24-70mm-Equiv. f/1.8-2.8 Lens
- UHD 4K30p Video with HLG & S-Log3 Gammas
- 3.0″ Side Flip-Out Touchscreen LCD
- Fast Hybrid AF, Real Time Eye-AF and Real-time AF tracking
- Quickly switch between two modes of defocused background bokeh
- Product Showcase Setting transitions focus from face to object
- Face priority AE keeps faces bright in backlit or dim condition
Conclusion from DPReview:
The ZV-1 is a solid option for vloggers and photographers looking for a compact camera with a fast lens and great video and still image quality. Its novel microphone and video-friendly ergonomics are big plusses, but we want to see Sony introduce a more modern touch interface and update their menus to appeal to a wider audience. Overall, whether you’re a dedicated video maker or just want an easy-to-use camera for good quality clips, the ZV-1 is worth a look.
