In this review I’ve directly compared the Sony ZV1 against the Sony A7C, two very different cameras but both aimed at a very similar audience. The ZV1 is a fixed-lens compact while the A7C is a full-frame mirrorless that costs around three times the price. Find out which is best for video creators in my review!

It’s Sony’s smallest and lightest full-framer to date, packing the photo and movie quality of the A7 III into a more compact body that’s barely larger or heavier than the A6600. Find out more in…
