It consists of diffused, large red LED indicator at the front, next to the lens, and it helps in informing if the video is being recorded or not. On the right side of the camera, it features a micro USB port, micro HDMI port, and a 3.5 mm microphone input. And the ports are covered with the plastic flaps, but they are not weather sealed.

In comparison to other Sony cameras, It is pretty clear in order to flip out the sideways and rotate up to 180 degrees.
The SD card and battery compartment is given on the bottom area with tripod mount. The battery tray is basically enlarged over tripod mount, which creates a problem in case you need to swap battery or SD cards in between the shoot because you have to dismount the camera from tripod.

Performance: Sony ZV-1 Camera Review
This gadget is a quite fun one, and you can master it in really less time. It has mode button designed in it instead of dial, which makes cycling easy via various shoots. As a camera user, most of these modes must be familiar to you. It includes sweep panaroma, which  take multiple pictures in continuation mode, scene selection to adjust the parameters automatically, and some usual features like program and manual mode, aperture and shutter.

The camera is light and east to handle with hand, which is appreciable due to its compact size. The Bluetooth handgrip can be used to connect the camera, and provides easy button options for shutter release, zoom, C1 shortcut, and video recording. You can lock the handgrip, so that accidentally you can not press any button.
The quality of the image was good under daylight. The ZV-1 maintained every little detail up to ISO 1,600, and after this it losts the sharpness. At the point of ISO 12,800, the details got weaker and texts also lost the sharpness. However, it was better that it does not created any chroma noise, and despite of losing the sharpness, the pictures came out useful.
The colors of the pictures took in daylight provided natural and punchy output with adequate dynamic range. The zoom range also provided decent shots in landscape, but the textures and objects were not much sharp. The close up shots were good, and the depth it captured with large aperture was impressive. The autofocus responded well in good light. The camera focus was quick and the object was promptly detectable with the help of viewfinder. Faces were easily tracked and eye AF also responded well.
It did not provide good output in low light, and it does not have focus illuminator, which struggled to find focus. The same goes with the faces also, but autofocus worked well with stills. The autofocus struggled while shooting the video, which was quite a problem.
Video shooting was quite a fun, as the colors came out natural and striking, and the background defocus was useful as well. It separated the object from the background, which was quite impressive. The gadget comes with a windbreaker, which helps in reducing wind noise by attaching to the hot shoe. This was helpful, as one does not have to go through the whole process of cutting the noise out. Videos in low light was a little odd, but not disappointing. The ultra slow motion was fun to shoot with HFR mode, but the quality was average.
Battery life was a bit disappointment while Sony ZV-1 camera review. It is equipped with a tiny battery and did not provide great output, but is acceptable. But thankfully it can be charged with power bank, and can  continue if required. The company claims that it can shoot at 1080p continuously up to 75 minutes in a single charge.


It was fun to experience the ZV-1, as the output was remarkable. With the given price, it is worth the money even if it is not for vlogging. If you require standalone version of the camera, then it is available at Rs. 60,000, and the additional vlogging kit will cost approx Rs. 10,000, which seems like a decent offer, as you get to have an extra battery, Bluetooth handgrip, and a 64 GB memory card.
