Built-in mic for clear voice recording
Capturing high-quality audio is effortless with the ZV-1 II.

The camera's powerful image stabilization minimizes camera blur, delivering steady shots even while walking and shooting handheld.
Simple, intuitive control
Stand out from the crowd with the ZV-1 II's Product Showcase Setting, which automatically focuses on the product you're holding, eliminating the need for additional gestures. The Bokeh Switch feature enables you to create a softly blurred background, making the subject stand out or keeping the entire image in focus.
Selfies made simple
Taking selfies is a breeze with the ZV-1 II. In iAUTO mode, the camera automatically adjusts settings to keep everyone's faces sharp and clear when taking group selfies.
