Sony has announced the ZV-FF, a full-frame camera aimed at content creators. The camera boasts an impressive feature set, developed based on user feedback, and is designed to provide creators with the very best tools.

The ZV-E1 is designed as a video-centric solution with a back-illuminated 12-megapixel full-frame Exmor R sensor (same resolution as the Alpha 7S III and probably the same sensor) 

It’s the smallest full-frame IBIS camera, according to Sony, weighing just 483g (including battery and memory card) and measuring 121.0 x 71.9 x 54.3mm.

The ZV-E1 is equipped with the BIONZ XR image processor. It also boasts a dedicated AI processing unit for its new (starting with the Alpha 7R V) AI-guided subject-detection autofocus and video. AI video features include Cinematic Vlog, My Image Style and S-Gamut3 – cine/S-Log3 for versatile creative expression.

It also includes multi-face detection, product demo customization, and creative zoom control. ZV-E1 also supports LUT for in-camera display of color grading.

Sony claims the IBIS stabilization system has been improved to provide up to 30% more stabilization, and footage works with Catalyst Browse software for gyroscopic data-based image stabilization.

The ZV-E1 shoots 4K uncropped video with full pixel readout without pixel binning. The update will add 4K/120p and FHD/240p and is planned for June 2023.

The camera supports in-camera slow motion. The internal three-capsule microphone features user-selectable or automatic AI-controlled directivity (front, rear, or omnidirectional) and a vari-angle LCD screen with a new touch interface.

The dust and splash resistant camera offers UVC/UAC support for USB streaming directly from the camera with audio and video up to 4K/30p. The ZV-E1 provides professional sound quality and versatility with advanced external microphone and headphone jacks and a digital audio interface via the Multi-Interface (MI) connector.

The ZV-E1 will be available in black and white for pre-order starting March 30th and will hit the market in the first or second week of May. The camera will retail for $2,200 without optics and $2,500 with a 28-60mm kit lens.
