Sony ZV-E1 Body

The Ultimate Vlog Camera for Content Creators

Designed as a professional photo+cinema camera for content creators to up their game, the ultra-compact black Sony ZV-E1 Mirrorless Camera provides cinematic looks to your vlogs, interviews, and product demonstrations. With an even smaller form than the EV-10 and the cinema-style inner-workings of the a7S III, the ZV-E1 features a full-frame 12MP Exmor R CMOS sensor and a BIONZ XR image processor to offer stunning cinema looks in a tiny, mobile form. Its full-frame E-mount makes it one of the smallest cameras with an interchangeable lens mount around. Some of the benefits of the ZV-E1 include a cinematic bokeh, 15+ stops of dynamic range, 5-axis stabilization, AI-based auto-framing, AF assist, multiple mic options, USB streaming, a dust and moisture resistant housing, and more.

12MP Exmor R CMOS Sensor + BIONZ XR Processor + AI

With 2.5x the image size of APS-C, the 12.1MP full-frame CMOS sensor features a back-illuminated Exmor R design, an updated BIONIC XR image processor, and a new, dedicated AI processing unit. Together, the camera provides capture of low-light images with its impressive ISO 80-102,400 with an extended ISO 80-409,600 range, 15+ stops of dynamic range, and a beautiful, cinematic bokeh for photo stills and video.

Video Recording

UHD 4K recording is possible with frame rates up to 120p and full HD recording up to 240p, using full 1:1 pixel readout without binning. Internal 10-bit 4:2:2 sampling is also possible in all recording modes.
The camera supports All-Intra (All-I) and XAVC S-I, which are intraframe codecs for consistent performance and quality at bitrates up to 600 Mb/s.

Check with Sony to make sure you have the proper firmware updates to support 4K120 recording.

Recording Flexibility

The high-speed, 120 fps recording enables slow-motion movie recording, or, if moving down to Full HD resolution, an effective 240 fps frame rate is also available for even greater motion control.
Suiting long-form recording, the ZV-E1 does not have any recording time limits to allow for unlimited clip lengths. The camera's physical design also features an improved heat-dissipating structure to promote longer possible recording times, up to an approximate 60-minute recording time at 4K60p.
The Cinematic Vlog setting provides cinematic settings with one touch. You can set all your cinema settings right on one screen, including aspect ratio, frame rate, look mode, mood, and AF modes.

Advanced Color Control

S-Cinetone can be used to deliver distinct colors and healthy-looking skin tone rendering that matches the a7S III, FX9, and FX6 cameras and is based on technology from the professional Cinema Line cameras, such as the VENICE. This color profile offers natural mid-tones, soft colors, and especially well-controlled highlights.
Affording extensive customizable color and gamma controls, you can adjust the gamma, black level, knee, color level, and more. Also, users can use the same S-Log3/S-Gamut3.Cine Gamma Curve that is found on high end Sony Cinema cameras for increased post-production flexibility.

Users can import and apply their own LUTs for additional gamma and image profile options

Autofocus and Image Stabilization

Fast Hybrid AF

The Autofocus feature provides multiple features including focus breathing compensation, customizable AF transition speed settings, and AF subject shift sensitivity settings. It provides a focus map and AF assist functions to provide fast, accurate focusing.

AI Processing Unit

Its dynamic active mode stabilization using the AI recognition and tracking system creates auto-cropping to focus in on a subject, and the framing location is fully customizable. The camera's bokeh switch provides custom adjustment for the level of bokeh.

The Multiple Face Recognition setting allows the camera to automatically track multiple subjects within the frame. It facilitates framing stabilization and automatically tracks your subject in frame, to make sure the subject stays within the frame.

The Product Showcase Setting provides an AF tracking switch between your product and subject, to maintain the same bokeh on different subjects.

5-Axis Image Stabilization

The ZV-E1 incorporates a next-gen 5-axis optical image stabilization system, which compensates for five different types of camera shake encountered during handheld shooting of stills and video. This allows users to confidently use any lens, even adapted lenses, for critical imaging without encountering blur from camera shake.

Optical active mode that increases image stabilization when walking with the camera, and dynamic active mode adds electronic stabilization that is even more effective when using fast movements and longer focal lengths.

Creative Zoom Operation

The ZV-E1 also features smooth zooming with your zoom lens using the zoom lever, or by using digital Clear Image Zoom for stepped zooming from 1.0x, 1.5x in 4K, 2.0x in FHD, or 4.0x in FHD.

Vlogging Features


The camera supports instant time-lapse settings with framerate, recording, light, and interval customization.

Slow and Quick Motion

When directly replaying movies in slow or quick motion in S&Q mode while using the XAVC S-I format at 60p, a maximum bit rate of 600 Mb/s (4:2:2 10-bit, H.264, All-I) delivers outstanding image quality. When using the XAVC S format, up to 10x slow motion with Full HD resolution is possible at 240 fps (24p recording), providing fresh perspectives on dynamic sports and other types of action.

Audio and Pro Video Features

The camera features an internal three-capsule mic, a mic jack, and you can also utilize a digital audio interface via the Multi-interface (MI) shoe. It also features a 3.5mm headphone jack. A windscreen is included to protect the internal mic.

For use in professional situations, the camera features a tally lamp, a custom video control layout, an integrated shooting grip, and a self timer.

Connectivity and Streaming

The camera can connect to the Creators' Cloud central cloud platform using a smartphone app for sharing and storing media, editing in the cloud, and collaboration tools. You can utilize USB output using UVC/UAC control via a computer for streaming applications and broadcasts, and the USB output supports up to 4K30 video.

You can also livestream with the camera with its webcam function using a computer. You can output up to 4K30 video (or 1080p60 video) via USB-C to a computer and utilize the camera to live stream via a computer app. It supports UVC/UAC control protocol standards.

The Portable Powerhouse Standard Zoom

Impressively compact and versatile, the Sony FE 28-60mm f/4-5.6 is a wide-angle to long-normal zoom characterized by its retractable design and sleek profile. Its svelte design makes this lens ideal for walkaround, everyday shooting, and the flexible focal length range benefits a wide range of subject types, from street shooting to portraiture to travel photography.

Small and Light

Small size and lightweight design is what this lens is all about, meaning it's the perfect companion for casual shooting days when a single, versatile, and portable lens is most desirable.

Retractable design maintains an especially compact profile when not in use, measuring just 1.8" long.
Weighing 5.9 oz, its featherweight stature pairs well with compact full-frame or APS-C bodies.
Dust- and moisture-resistant design suits working in inclement weather conditions.
Optics and AF

Three aspherical elements help to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion throughout the zoom range for improved sharpness and accurate rendering.
The use of specialized elements also contributes to a smaller, lighter physical design.

In addition to the variety afforded by the 28-60mm focal length range, this lens also has a versatile 11.8" minimum focusing distance that enables working with close-up subjects.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

ECM-S1 Wireless Streaming Microphone

Compact portable streaming microphone for high-quality sound

The ECM-S1 Wireless Streaming Microphone provides clear, low-noise, high-quality digital sound recording in a compact, lightweight unit. It offers both wireless and wired connections, providing high-quality audio to a wide range of devices.

High-quality digital sound, both indoors and outdoors

Compact, lightweight wireless streaming microphone

With both wireless and wired connections available, the ECM-S1 portable streaming microphone is a compact and lightweight high-performance unit that provides clear, low-noise, minimum audio delay, high-quality audio for easy recording or live-streaming either indoors or outdoors.

High-quality microphone capsules for clear voice recording

Despite its compactness and light weight, the ECM-S1 is equipped with three large-diameter (14 mm) microphone capsules that provide clear, high-quality sound recording with a flat frequency response, particularly in the low-mid-range voice band, while suppressing noise. Great sound quality makes a huge contribution to the overall impression made on viewers by well-produced video. 

Low intrinsic noise levels deliver clear sound

The low intrinsic noise and wide dynamic range of the microphone allow clear capture of even low-level sound. Designed for streaming, the microphone is tuned particularly to capture the rich textures of the human voice near the mouth clearly and naturally.

Directivity selectable to suit the scene

Three directional sound capture modes are provided: Uni-directional, Omni-directional, and Stereo. A switch on the side of the microphone allows the user to select the appropriate directivity for the current scene or usage situation.

Noise-suppressing filter functions

A digital noise cut filter removes persistent background noise, and a low cut filter on the microphone side reduces unwanted low-frequency sound from wind, air conditioning, and vibration. Less noise reduction is needed post-production, improving workflow efficiency.

Pop guard to suppress popping noise

A pop guard is included to prevent the annoying popping sounds that can occur due to vocal plosives when the microphone is placed close to the speaker's mouth, allowing vocals, narration, and other audio to be recorded under optimal conditions.

Compact, lightweight, and easy to operate

Compact, lightweight body design

The ECM-S1 comprises compact and lightweight1 microphone / transmitter and receiver units that provide excellent functionality with high digital sound quality. It can be used in a wide variety of environments, both indoors and outdoors with a camera.

Operability for real-time confirmation and adjustment

An independent AUDIO LEVEL dial allows real-time adjustment of the audio input level with the upper dial. In addition, the connection status between the microphone and receiver can be checked with the LINK lamp.

Suitable for long hours of outdoor shooting

The receiver and microphone each have built-in batteries. The receiver can be used continuously with direct power supply when connected to the camera's Multi Interface (MI) Shoe2 or to a PC or other device3. The microphone can be used continuously for about 13 hours when fully charged. The microphone can be used for long periods of time without worrying about the battery.

Improved flexibility in audio recording through wireless transmission

Bluetooth 5.3 (Bluetooth Low Energy) and a LC3plus4 codec provide low power consumption, low latency, and high sound quality. Communication is possible at up to 150 m5 when there is a good line of sight, for flexibility in outdoor microphone placement.

Supports a variety of mounting and attachment methods

The microphone can be attached to a stand6 during recording, and the angle of the microphone can be adjusted back and forth. Alternatively, the 1/4" thread on the bottom of the microphone can be used to mount the microphone on a tripod, or a conversion adaptor can be used to attach the microphone to a boom arm7. 

A wide range of options with cameras and peripherals

Multi Interface (MI) Shoe for minimal audio delay and cable-less power supply
Connecting the receiver to a camera8 from Sony that supports the Multi Interface (MI) Shoe, such as one of the α™ series digital interchangeable-lens cameras or vlog cameras, eliminates the need for a separate cable to supply power or to provide the audio interface.

Wireless sound recording in conjunction with a camera

By connecting the receiver to a camera from Sony that supports the Multi Interface (MI) Shoe with a digital audio interface, high-quality audio can be captured and transmitted digitally without degradation, with the wireless connection allowing maximum shooting freedom.

USB digital audio output

Both the microphone and receiver are equipped with a USB Type-C® port that provides 48 kHz / 24-bit digital audio output9. This enables the microphone to be connected to a wide variety of devices, allowing for filming and streaming with a variety of connection methods.

Microphone audio input/output via 3.5 mm mini jack (stereo)

A 3.5 mm mini jack (stereo) is provided for audio output from the receiver, allowing use with cameras, PCs, IC recorders, and other devices not equipped with a Multi Interface (MI) Shoe.

Audio monitoring with headphones

The microphone is equipped with a headphone output jack10, allowing audio monitoring via headphones (sold separately) 11 during recording via USB connection.
