  • Perfect Vlogging camera
    Reviewed by Bob - June 23, 2020

    Love this camera! I initially had the Canon G7mkii, and didn't like the softness and bad focus. Purchased a Sony a6500 and love that camera, but not ideal for vlogging for two reasons, It's bulky to carry around, and image stability is terrible. Purchased the ZV-1 a week ago and I absolutely love it. It's pretty much the perfect vlogging and walk around camera. Excellent in low light and very portable. Image quality is cleaner then I anticipated. Out of camera, the image quality is smoother then what you've seen most people post on youtube. I guess youtube is compressing the videos. The focal range is perfect for street photography. Can't wait to take this on hikes and hopefully a vacation soon.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Amazing Camera!!
    Reviewed by CLehmann - December 17, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This camera has exceeded all of my expectations! The compact design is great for on the go recording. The software that runs the camera is very versatile and the camera can be used for different applications! The out of box set up is ready to go for vloggers. I was able to change a few settings and use it for birthday party pictures and videos! this camera is awesome!! The movable screen on is perfect for all types of photography and videography. I use It for everything from work to personal life including vlogs for my family and HDR photography. The tripod handle makes it easy to switch from first person view to selfies in a blink of an eye!
