Sony ZV-1 II Vlogging Camera Launched In MEA Region

Opening The Door For A Wider Audience Of Content Creators

The ZV-1 II, an entirely new second-generation camera to the ZV-1 in the vlog camera ZV series that combines widely desired and well-liked market-leading capabilities, was just unveiled by Sony Middle East and Africa. The wider perspective of the ZV-1 II enables vloggers to tell stories that are more interesting and photogenic. Let us know more about this product.



The Sony ZV-1 II is ideal for use when travelling; even with its optical wide zoom lens, it can be carried in a pocket or small bag thanks to its lightweight, portable design. With its selfie-friendly vari-angle screen, easy-to-hold body grip (or optional GP-VPT2BT grip), user-friendly key and control arrangement 11, and recording indicator on the front face of the body, the ZV-1 II enables a variety of filming techniques. A new red frame that stands out visibly on the monitor display makes it clear when recording is taking place. A USB Type-C port makes power charging simple. For the camera body, recycled materials, such as SORPLAS, are actively utilised, minimising environmental effects without losing functionality. For individual packaging, Sony uses their own “Original Blend Material” made from recycled paper, which is simple to recycle and does not utilise plastic. It is premium and eco-friendly, made from resources like bamboo, sugar cane fibre, and recycled paper gathered from the market.


The ZV-1 II offers sophisticated capabilities to creators of all skill levels thanks to its 1.0-type Exmor RSTM image sensor (about 20.1 effective megapixels), BIONZ XTM image processing engine, and ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T 18-50mm F1.8-4 1 lens. The ZV-1 II is a cutting-edge vlogging camera that is compact enough to fit in a travel bag. It features an 18-50mm 2 wide angle lens that can capture anything from group selfies to tight interiors to dynamic recordings of everyday scenes. It also features Multiple Face Recognition, which recognises multiple faces and automatically adjusts to keep all faces sharp and clear when taking selfie shots that include two or three people.

Features For Images

The camera features an ultra-wide angle and zoom capabilities, with an 18mm wide angle of view that effortlessly captures captivating images, especially when taking selfies at arm’s length. The 18-50mm optical zoom and Clear Image Zoom technology smoothly enlarge images while maintaining image quality, providing a versatile range of angles for videos. Additionally, it boasts a 1.0 type sensor with a Bokeh Switch, allowing users to achieve beautiful background defocusing with a simple touch.


For audio recording, the camera is equipped with an intelligent 3-capsule microphone. In Auto mode, the microphone automatically adjusts its direction based on detected human faces or objects, ensuring clear sound capture from the front or all directions. In Manual mode, users can select the appropriate microphone direction for selfies, narration, or all directions. The camera also offers easy connectivity for external microphones through a cableless attachment to the Multi Interface Shoe or a 3.5 mm microphone jack.

Vlogging Features

To meet the demands of vloggers, the camera features a Cinematic Vlog Setting function. The camera offers a selection of five LOOKs and four MOODs to enhance the visual style of the videos. Furthermore, the camera supports ten preset Creative Looks, catering to different creative preferences and offering pro-level imaging features. For optimal exposure and enhanced filming quality, the camera incorporates Face Priority AE and Soft Skin Effect. The system detects faces and adjusts exposure to optimize facial brightness, regardless of lighting conditions. The Soft Skin Effect smoothens skin and facial features during filming, adding a touch of refinement.

To facilitate product review videos, the camera offers a Product Showcase Setting that enables smooth focus transitions from the user’s face to the highlighted item. This feature streamlines the shooting process and enhances the presentation of products. Additionally, the Active Mode electronic image stabilization compensates for motion, enabling stable content capture while walking or in motion.


The Middle East and Africa region’s vloggers, social media influencers, and makers of short-form videos will all use the ZV-1 II, which can be an exciting new chapter for content creators. The ZV-1 II fulfils the goal of using community feedback to continue to develop and raise our ZV series, by incorporating features that are important to vloggers into the newest model of the ZV series.

Price & Availability

The price for the Sony ZV-1 II Vlogging Camera has not been revealed yet. Customers who prebook now will receive a complimentary wireless shooting grip (GP-VPT2BT). In the UAE, the new ZV-1 II will be offered to begin the week of June 5, 2023. For more information on the entire product, users have to refer to this video –
