Sony tweeted a match for a new compact 4K camera arriving on May 20, and there are rumors that it is designed for vlogging. Called ZV-1, it will be based on the popular RX100 VII with some key differences, according to one PR leak and specifications seen by Sony Alpha Rumors. Although it contains the same autofocus with eye tracking and a 20-megapixel 1-inch sensor, it comes with a different 24-70mm f / 1.8-2.8 lens, a large button recording, a microphone with 3 capsules, a fully articulated screen and a handle.
This should make it more user-friendly than the RX100 VII, which has a 24-200mm f / 2.8 less bokeh zoom, a pop-up display (rather than a variable angle), a small record button, and none of the accessories. Other possible specifications on the ZV-1 include a built-in neutral density filter that will allow better bokeh under bright light, a "soft skin" effect to smooth wrinkles and an automatic priority exposure algorithm face. It can also have a one-button "product showcase setting" that can automatically move the focus from your face to another object.
