Sony’s ZV-1 vlogging camera, while not perfect, has got a lot of people very interested since its launch in May. It’s an all-in-one camera that offers optical image stabilisation, a flippy out LCD (finally, Sony, thank you!), 4K video up to 30fps, a 24-70mm equivalent field of view lens at f/1.8-2.8 and a microphone socket with a hotshoe on top to mount it.
But it’s about to get even better. During the recent Interview between DPReview and Sony VP Kenji Tanaka, he revealed that a new desktop application is on the way that will turn your Sony ZV-1 into a USB webcam. No HDMI capture device required.
