Sony has introduced a white version of its ZV-1 vlogging digital compact camera. Originally launched in June, the ZV-1 is targeted towards casual smartphone who are looking for a better camera to capture their everyday life. Aside from the difference in colour, the white version of the Sony’ vlogging camera is virtually identical to the black version.
The highlight feature of the ZV-1 is its fully articulating LCD touchscreen instead of the flip-out display found on the RX100 cameras. The new screen opens a great deal of flexibility for precise framing and fluid operation even while the user is in front of the camera. The camera even has a red recording lamp in front making it easy to know when you are recording.
Audio is integral in vlogging so Sony has included a directional 3-capsule microphone that allows it better capture audio in front of the camera. You can even attach a wind screen on top of the microphone to cut out wind noise. Sony has even included a matching white wind screen to match the camera body.
The camera features a 1″ 20.1MP Exmor RS CMOS sensor and it’s capable of shooting 20MP stills as well as 4K video up to 30fps. It’ll also do 1080p up to 120fps with additional slow motion high framerate options of up to 960fps. Additionally, the ZV-1 lens offers an equivalent 24-70mm focal length with a maximum aperture of f/1.8 – f/2.8.
The Sony ZV-1 in white is now available in Malaysia at RM3,399. From now until 30 November, every purchase of a brand new ZV-1 White buyers to get a Peak Design wrist strap and a 64GB SD card for free.
Also, if you are looking to up your vlogging game, you can top up another RM199 to grab the VCT-SGR1 shooting grip which normally retails for RM399.
