Sony "ZV-E1" tipped to launch as new vlogging camera by end of March 2023
Sony has been said to have new cameras to introduce before the first quarter of 2023 is out, and it now seems that the ZV-E1 will be at least one of them.
As the name suggests, it is currently being billed as a new camera for content creators with an E-mount lens; however, it may also pack some advantages over its supposed E10 predecessor. It is, for example, tipped to incorporate the same sensor as the premium-grade a7s III, and may look more like it too, (with "some FX3 elements") thanks to a design overhaul since the ZV-1F.
It is, for example, now depicted as having sprouted a new top-mounted Menu button, while its photo/video/S&Q mode button has become a slider. Internally, the "ZV-E1" is believed to have picked up the new AI from the a7r V, as well as an improved version of this new mirrorless unit's auto-focus (AF). Despite these potential selling points, the upcoming camera is also rumored to have a tendency to overheat.
All in all, this "new ZV" is seemingly being painted as a potentially more premium take on the 'Sony vlogging camera', albeit one that may compromise on the portable edge of its predecessors for the sake of more features; it is even said to have a thicker grip than the ZV-1 at this stage. We may get the chance to find out for sure on its rumored March 29, 2023 debut.
