Frame it all

With the vlog camera ZV-1 II, you can shoot everything from group selfies to sprawling cityscapes. The wide-angle 18 mm lens can capture a wider field of view than the human eye, so you can easily fit everyone or everything in the frame. Whether you're indoors or out, the wide-angle lens turns everyday scenes into dynamic footage.

Versatile framing

The ZV-1 II lets you frame your shots exactly how you want, thanks to its wide-angle zoom lens. 18 mm is great for selfies, while 50 mm is ideal for portraits and snapshots. What's more, the maximum apertures of F1.8 with the wide-angle and F4 with the telephoto give a smooth background bokeh, adding all the atmosphere you need.

Recyclable non-plastic packaging materials

Sony is working towards the use of non-plastic packaging materials, while still providing ample protection during shipping. We are also using plant-based non-woven fabrics for product bags. All of this helps to minimise our environmental impact.

Using recycled plastic

SORPLAS™ is a Sony-developed durable and repeatedly recycled material. We use it in conjunction with other recycled materials to manufacture camera bodies without compromising performance and functionality. Approximately 379 tons of virgin plastic have been replaced by recycled plastics in our digital cameras and digital video cameras over the past ten years.

Wind screen using recycled polyester

The fibres used in the wind screen provided with the ZV-1 II are made exclusively from recycled PET bottles. Extensive testing was carried out to ensure that sound quality and wind noise reduction performance were fully up to our standards, achieving environmental impact reduction without compromising functionality.
