Unleash Your Full Creative Potential
Alpha ZV-E1 combines a Full-frame sensor, E-mount interchangeable lens options and innovative AI powered functions for expressive imagery that emphasizes your subject and unleashes your creativity.
Full-frame 12.1MP1 Exmor R sensor, optimized for 4K, sensitivity and speed
The ZV-E1 is Sony's first vlog camera with a Full-frame 12.1 MP1 Exmor R image sensor that is optimized for 4K and delivers 15+ stops of latitude, low noise, high sensitivity, and gorgeous full-frame bokeh.
10-bit 4:2:2 recording with direct pixel readout, Long GOP or All Intra formats
The ZV-E1 can record 4K movies with direct pixel readout, 10-bit depth and 4:2:2 color sampling using Long GOP or All Intra compression, making it possible to grade for fuller, more natural gradations while generally providing greater editing freedom.
Create memorable imagery with ease with Cinematic Vlog Setting
Cinematic Vlog Setting provides an intuitive way to create scenes that look like feature movies. By choosing a Look, Mood and AF transition speed, anyone can create cinematic vlog footage that ideally matches the scene and creative intent.
The Cinematic Vlog Setting includes "Look" options such as S-Cinetone that can enhance skin tones, "Mood" options that can emphasize specific colors, and AF transition speed that determines how quickly autofocus will switch between subjects. The overall cinematic feel is further enhanced by the use of a 24 fps frame rate and the widescreen Cinemascope aspect ratio (2.35:1) with black bands above and below the image
Dedicated AI Processor and Real-time Recognition for accurate subject tracking
With its innovative AI processing unit, the ZV-E1 uses subject form data to accurately recognize movement, providing an improvement of approx. 60% in human eye recognition. Human pose estimation technology recognizes body and head position, so even people wearing helmets or masks, or animals facing away from the camera, can be accurately detected and tracked in real time.
Get stable recording with Dynamic Active Mode and with its 5-axis in-body image stabilization
A compact, precision stabilization unit and gyro sensors plus optimized algorithms achieve up to 5.0-step anti-shake compensation. Newly developed Dynamic active Mode features advanced electronic stabilization working in conjunction with the camera’s 5-axis in-body image stabilization system to achieve approximately 30% more effective compensation than the Active Mode provided in previous models. This makes it easier than ever to shoot smooth, stable vlog footage while moving around for bold, dynamic expression.
Maintain constant subject position within the frame with Framing Stabilizer
The Framing Stabilizer feature automatically keeps the subject's position in the frame constant, which can be particularly useful when walking alongside the subject. Advanced AI-based subject recognition technology works with the camera's Dynamic active Mode image stabilization to reliably keep the subject in the frame even while in motion during handheld shooting
Multiple Face Recognition automatically optimizes depth of field for selfies or groups
The camera's AI-based subject recognition adjusts focus and aperture while taking selfies or group portraits. It can adjust aperture to keep all faces in focus or minimize it if only one face is in the frame. This ensures accurate focus and artistic bokeh, even if people are entering or leaving a scene. The camera automatically adjusts aperture, so users can capture natural expressions without manual adjustment.
