World’s smallest, lightest full-frame interchangeable lens vlog camera with high-quality image processing unit and a full-frame back-illuminated sensor for perfect image quality and stunning bokeh effect
The ZV-E1 is a dedicated vlog camera that features a 35mm full-frame back-illuminated CMOS Exmor R™ sensor, with approximately 12.1 effective megapixels, that delivers high sensitivity, low noise and gorgeous bokeh. With up to 8 times more processing power than previous types, the BIONZ XR™ image processing engine markedly boosts high-sensitivity performance, gradation rendering, colour reproduction, low-noise performance, and more. The high volume of data generated by the image sensor can be processed in real time, even when shooting 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160) footage at 120p. The BIONZ XR processor also contributes significantly to improved AF speed and precision.
Revolutionary video recording unleashing full-frame clarity, unmatched quality and colour depth
High-quality 4K (QFHD) video can be recorded with full-frame readout at 10-bit 4:2:2, without the need for pixel binning. This makes the expressive advantages of the full-frame format available for video recording whilst delivering high-resolution 4K footage without moiré or jaggies.
Expanded range of ISO and latitude to capture natural-looking images in a variety of lightning situations without disrupting the quality
Users can shoot 4K 60p and can upgrade up to 4K 120p through the Creators’ Cloud with extraordinarily smooth 5x (max.) slow-motion imagery. When directly replaying video in slow or quick motion in the S&Q mode while using the XAVC S-I format at 60p, a maximum bit rate of 600 Mbps (4:2:2 10-bit, H.264, All-I) delivers outstanding image quality. When upgraded, and using the XAVC S format, up to 10x slow motion with Full HD resolution can be used at 240 fps providing fresh perspectives on dynamic sports and other types of action.
Cinematic vlog setting to enhance the mood and look of the vlog, ensuring a healthy and natural look
The ZV-E1 can create standout content with Cinematic Vlog Setting - an intuitive way to create scenes that look like feature movies. By choosing an appropriate Look and Mood, anyone can create cinematic vlog footage that ideally matches the scene and creative intent. Cinematic Vlog Setting include ‘Looks’ that delivers natural mid-tones, plus soft colours and smooth highlights that are essential to cinematic look and enhance skin tones, ‘Moods’ that emphasise specific colours, and AF transition speed that determines how quickly autofocus will switch between subjects. The overall cinematic feel is further enhanced by a 24 fps frame rate and the widescreen Cinemascope aspect ratio (2.35:1) with black bands above and below the image. For a truly cinematic look, the ZV-E1 features S-Cinetone.
Innovative AI processing unit and outstanding tracking and recognition features
Real-time Recognition AF incorporates an innovative AI processing unit that uses subject form data to accurately recognise movement - human pose estimation technology uses learned human forms and postures to recognise not just eyes, but body and head position with high precision, making it possible to lock onto and track a subject facing away from the camera. The AI processing unit can even differentiate between multiple subjects having different postures and recognition of individual faces has also been improved so that tracking reliability is achieved in challenging situations such as when a subject’s face is tilted, in shadow, or backlit. In addition to Human and Animal, the AI processing unit now makes it possible to recognise Bird, Insect, Car/Train and Airplane subjects, providing even greater flexibility and reliability when shooting both stills and video.
The ZV-E1 features AI-based Real-time Tracking4 that can be activated by specifying the subject and half-pressing the shutter button. The camera will then automatically track the subject, leaving the user free to concentrate on framing and composition. The new camera has a fast Hybrid AF for fast acquisition and tenacious tracking as well detailed AF settings for the ultimate precision and control. A compact, precision stabilisation unit and gyro sensors with optimised algorithms achieve up to 5.0-step stabilisation that helps to deliver the full image quality potential of the ZV-E1. Camera shake is detected and effectively corrected in 5 axes and the in-body image stabilisation of the vlog camera can provide effective stabilisation with a wide range of lenses, including E-mount lenses that do not include stabilisation of their own.
Stable vlogging experience with multiple attributes including breathing compensation and framing stabiliser which help in smooth vlogging experience while carrying out movements
Breathing Compensation suppresses image shifts whilst focusing to maintain a consistent angle of view and achieve smooth, dramatic focusing effects. The camera also features Multiple Face Recognition which automatically adjusts bokeh and focus on multiple recognised faces when shooting group selfies or group portraits – preventing problems like only the faces in the front being in focus whilst those further back are out of focus.
