Sony has released a new firmware update for the ZV–1 that enables direct output over USB to a PC or compatible smartphone. The Sony ZV-1 is a great little compact camera for vloggers and the only thing missing until now has been the ability to connect it to a computer via USB for livestreaming.
Firmware v2.00 lets users connect the Sony ZV-1 to a PC (or compatible MacOS machines) via USB and live stream in high-quality video. In addition, users also benefit from the quality built-in microphone for crystal-clear audio to bump-up the production quality of your Zoom calls or live streams on social media.
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.
What’s New in Firmware Update v2.00 for Sony ZV-1
- USB Live Streaming function added
- Connecting over a USB cable to a PC or Xperia smartphone allows you to conduct livestreaming and online communication with the high video and audio quality
- This applies to Xperia 1 II smartphones or Xperia 5 II smartphones that have been upgraded to Android 11. Update availability varies by region. (As of February 9, 2021)
- Use a commercially available USB cable or terminal conversion adaptor
