Sony ZV-E1 Review

 

Tiny full-frame camera with stabilized sensor ; Widescreen cinematic vlog mode ; S-Cinetone and S-Log3 picture profiles ; Great-looking 10-bit 4K60 video ; 4K120 and 1080p240 slow-motion ; Excellent stabilization system ; Quality in-camera audio

Fragile micro HDMI port ; Can overheat at 4K60 ; No mechanical shutter

Sony's full-frame ZV-E1 camera delivers fantastic results for videos and vlogs thanks to a stabilized sensor, S-Cinetone color, and a number of AI-powered features to assist creators operating without the benefit of a crew.

Sony ZV-E1 Review

 

Sony has announced its first full-frame ZV camera. The new flagship vlogging camera combines the flexibility of an interchangeable lens design with the image quality and video performance of a full-frame image sensor.

The Sony ZV-E1 offers many compelling features for video-focused content creators. While it's not useless for still photography, that's not its focus or strength. In that respect, it's quite different from other hybrid-oriented full-frame cameras on...

Sony ZV-E1 review: pint-sized vlogging powerhouse

 

Very small and incredibly powerful, but can a vlogging camera justify such a high price?

Sony ZV-E1 Review

 

Designed for the most demanding of vloggers, the Sony ZV-E1 mirrorless camera is certainly eye-catching on paper.

Superb all-round video quality ; Good stabilisation and autofocus ; Compact and weatherproof body

No viewfinder ; No cooling system ; No mechanical shutter

It might be ostensibly designed for vloggers, but the portability, performance and imaging power of the Sony ZV-E1 full-frame camera make it appealing to anyone who wants to make stunning video content. It’s not a great choice for photos, however, and...

Sony ZV-E1 review: vlogging on steroids

 

Top-quality 4K video made easy for modest crews

Cheapest way to get the Sony A7S III sensor ; Makes high-quality vlogging as simple as possible ; Great for handheld videos

Single SD card slot restricts video capabilities ; Not a camera for heavy video use ; Smart AI features are buried in menus

The tiny Sony ZV-E1 is the most capable ‘vlogging’ camera available, and is overkill for most content creators, but it will likely surface on more serious video productions too, thanks to its clean 4K video image quality in any light, plus superb...

Sony ZV-E1 review: An impossibly small full-frame camera

 

The latest full-frame camera from Sony joins its vlogging ZV range, but features interchangeable lenses and lots of power.

Compact and portable design ; Fantastic autofocus performance ; Great battery life and convenient charging ; Much more user-friendly than Alpha cameras

It's expensive ; Only one SD card slot

Sony's flagship ZV camera combines the power and capabilities of a full-frame Alpha camera with the portability and features from its creator range to great effect.

Sony ZV-E1 review: prodigious talent

 

If you're a vlogger, Sony thinks you're important. We know this because the company has the ZV line, an entire series of digital cameras.

Superb video quality ; Beginner-friendly features ; Much-improved touchscreen UI

Some useful features trimmed out ; Photography feels like an afterthought

You don’t need to love vlogging to appreciate the ZV-E1’s prodigious video talents
