Verdict/Final Thoughts

The Sony ZV-1 camera is recommended for vloggers that need a simple to use yet high-quality recording vlogging camera that can shoot 4k and has a tilting LCD touchscreen display. This camera has a built-in wifi connection so that you can instantly upload your content or when using an SD card you can also transfer it to a computer and do video editing before uploading it. Due to its size don't expect a large CMOS sensor and it may not be good on producing beautiful bokeh on the wider end of the focal length. But for a vlogging camera, this is not a bad choice compared to buying a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera.
