Sony’s 4K 20.1MP ZV-1 Handheld Camera Was Tailor-Made For Travel Vlogs

We all know that handheld camera/video devices have come a long way over the years, and thanks to the new generation’s infatuation with travel, documentation, and selfies, we’ve been gifted with a slew of interesting tech over the past decade. As we round out 2020, Sony has decided to put its best foot forward for a unique camera system catered entirely to vloggers and travel enthusiasts — a stacked, but compact platform known as the ZV-1.

The ZV-1 is the answer to a lot of the community’s issues with Sony’s alternative point-and-shoot models, including the RX100 line. To bring its newest technology to the masses, the company has opted to include the same 20.1-megapixel Exmor RS BSI CMOS image sensor that can be found in its RX100 VII, albeit, with various quality-of-life upgrades, like a three-inch flip-out touchscreen, a directional three-capsule microphone, and a multi-interface shoe for attaching differing video and photo peripherals. If you’re thinking of documenting your own adventures, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the ZV-1’s ZEISS 24-70mm-equivalent standard zoom lens and f/1.8-2.8 maximum aperture range, as well as its Active SteadyShot image stabilization, ensuring the most stable UHD 4K video capture possible. Head to BH’s website to preorder your own for $748.
