You might think it's cool

The ZV-1 is a little bit thicker than the RX100 V and Sony says the use of more composite materials in its construction improve heat dissipation. You can see this composite panel when the screen is flipped out. Despite this, the camera will only record footage for five minutes at a go in its default state. You need to disable the overheat shutdown function in order to record for longer periods.

With this done, we're told the camera will keep recording almost indefinitely (or, at least, to the capacity of your memory card). But it'll be interesting to find out just how hot the camera gets, and how long you can comfortably hold the camera before needing to consider the optional VPT2BT bluetooth selfie grip thing.

We've not yet been given a battery life figure but, as we say, the ZV-1 can be powered over its USB connector if necessary.
