Gadgetren – After introducing a series of entry-level vlog cameras through the ZV series, Sony Indonesia is back again with its latest camera for vloggers, this time in the flagship category called the Alpha ZV-E1.

Classified as an Alpha camera, the Alpha ZV-E1 is priced higher than its three budget siblings namely the ZV-1, Alpha ZV-E10 and ZV-1F. The price for the Alpha ZV-E1 itself reaches IDR 34,999,000.

Currently, the door to order the Alpha ZV-E1 camera is open until June 4, 2023 through an online sales channel or all authorized Sony dealers. As an attractive offer during the pre-order period, Sony is also providing PWP Cashback up to IDR 3,300,000 for SEL24F14FM, SELP1635G, SEL2070G lenses and GP-VPT2BT grip.

Sony is also preparing exclusive Sony jackets that are only available to customers who purchase during the pre-order period. As a full-frame vlog camera in the Alpha series, the Alpha ZV-E1 is aimed at content creators or vloggers who are no longer beginners but professionals.

This way content creators can take photos anywhere while traveling, both indoors and outdoors in various lighting conditions. Therefore, the Alpha ZV-E1 is equipped with advanced features capable of producing full-frame images.

The lens unit is interchangeable with Sony’s collection of e-mount lenses so they can be swapped out depending on your video shooting and recording needs. Utilizing the BIONX XR image processing engine, the Alpha ZV-E1 uses a full-frame 12.1MP back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor.

For video recording, the Alpha ZV-E1 can output up to 4K resolution at 120p or 60p. The ISO sensitivity can reach 409600 and it has 15+ stops of latitude that can take photos or videos in low light conditions with amazing results.


Even the Alpha ZV-E1 camera provides special cinematic video recording settings via Sony’s S-Cinetone mode, including CLEAN X OCEAN, CHIC X FOREST and MONO.

Using AI-based subject recognition technology, Auto Framing automatically crops the frame to keep the subject in focus while shooting video. Even without moving the camera, the framing constantly adjusts to smoothly follow the subject, which will also be useful for single shot modes.

In addition, an Al-based frame stabilizer and in-body 5-axis optical image stabilization and Active Dynamic Mode stabilization are provided, so that further video shooting in and around the subject is even smoother.

There’s also an autofocus mode for precise and accurate subject detection using Real-time Recognition AF and AI-based Real-time Tracking. The new camera is also equipped with powerful hybrid AF tracking and detailed AF settings for precise and accurate control.

Real-time recognition AF and AI-based real-time tracking detect not only eyes but also body and head positions, such as when the subject’s face is tilted, in shadows or backlit. Besides, it can track the movements of animals, cars, trains and even planes.


In addition, the Alpha ZV-E1 can by default record video in S-Log3 and 10-bit 4:2:2 mode to create natural gradients directly from the camera without going through the post-production process.

Interestingly, users can live stream with the Alpha ZV-E1 camera which is equipped with 3 Smart Capsule microphones with variable directionality that can capture clear audio. Don’t forget there’s also a windshield that can reduce wind noise when you’re shooting outdoors in a windy environment.

The Alpha ZV-E1 camera also features a Multi Interface (MI) shoe with a digital audio interface and microphone and headphone jacks. Let’s not forget that the camera is equipped with a variable-angle LCD screen that can be opened to the side.

There are other supporting features, such as dust and moisture resistance, the shooting handle can be combined with the wireless remote control (GP-VPT2BT), can be connected to a mobile phone, and has a “Product Exposure Adjustment” function, as well as a -tap the Bokeh switch.
