The Sony ZV-1 II is an ideal all-round vlog camera. Compact and portable, it features a wide-angle zoom lens for versatile framing, a large 1" sensor for great image quality, and an intelligent microphone for clear audio recording
Frame it all
With the vlog camera ZV-1 II, you can shoot everything from group selfies to sprawling cityscapes. The wide-angle 18-50mm zoom lens can capture a wide field of view from 18mm, so you can easily fit everyone or everything in the frame to beautiful portraits at 50mm. Whether you're indoors or out, the wide-angle lens turns everyday scenes into dynamic footage.
No experience is needed to make an impressive vlog with all the right visuals from the outset. My Image Style lets you simply tweak brightness and color while viewing what you plan to shoot-all without having to wade through menus. For shots with more creative color and mood, Creative Look offers ten presets so simply select one that matches your vision.
Add a dramatic touch
Just tap the screen to turn everyday moments into cinematic imagery, all without post-production editing. With the Cinematic Vlog Setting, the camera automatically shoots in a Cinemascope aspect ratio4 at 24 fps - the film industry standard. You can also change the color of your footage simply by selecting from five LOOKs and tour MOODs for instant, professional results.
Built-in mic for clear voice recording
With the ZV-1 II, capturing high quality audio is even easier. In [Auto] mode, the new built-in Intelligent 3-Capsule Mic switches the direction of the built-in mic from [All Directions] to [Front] when the camera recognizes a human face in the frame. Or you can switch manually from [Auto] to [Front] for selfies or [Rear] when shooting with narration. Attach a supplied windscreen to reduce wind noise and capture clearer audio outdoors.
Small and lightweight, the vlog camera ZV-1 II is designed to be taken out anywhere - just like your smartphone. Weighing just 10.3 oz. (292g), capture everyday life with ease and grab content on the go.
Simple, intuitive control
Even first-time vloggers can jump straight into shooting with the ZV-1 II; there's no need to study complex settings. Touch function icons like recording, self-timer and the Product Showcase Setting are displayed on the screen for easy control. These are also great for shooting selfies or in other situations when you can't reach the physical buttons on the camera.
Focus on what you want.
Activate Real-time Tracking to follow a subject of your choice. The camera recognizes colors, brightness, and subject distance, as well as facial information to keep track of the subject so you can concentrate on grabbing the best angles. Just tap the subject on the screen to activate Touch Tracking for precise focus tracking
Stand out with just a tap
The ZV-1 II is designed for easier content creation. Activate the Product Showcase Setting and the camera will automatically focus on the product you're holding with no additional gestures needed. Or use the Bokeh Switch to get a softly blurred background - simply select [Defocus] to make the subject stand out, or [Clear] to keep the entire image in focus.
Selfies made simple
Let the ZV-1 II work for you to capture great group moments. When taking selfies in iAUTO mode with two or three people, the camera automatically adjusts the setting to keep everyone's faces sharp and clear.
Shooting grip for easy vlogging
Vlogging is simpler and more comfortable with the optional GPVPT2BT wireless shooting grip, which enables you to grab more stable shots and doubles as a tripod. The zoom lever and recording button are on the grip side, so you don't have to stretch around the camera every time to reach key control buttons.
