I think the previous and totally illogical hostility we used to see toward video in these forums has greatly diminished. There isn't a lot of interest in video beyond casual use since this is mostly a stills photography forum. There is even less interest for vlogging which the ZV-1 was designed for. For the vast majority of us the ZV-1 doesn't offer anything for video the RX100Va doesn't provide and the Va is better for stills.

No. The ZV-1 has better audio than all the RX cameras - the mics are better and you get an effective wind protector. There is also an external mic port, unlike the VA. The AF is better than that of the VA as well.

Audio is key for video.

The ZV-1 is not just a camera for vloggers, as I have tried to convey with many posts here of videos including those where audio is the point - music. Sony markets the ZV-1 camera for "creators" not just vloggers. The problem is that most of the reviewers are vloggers ao that distorts the camera's capabilities as a video camera.

The problem in this forum is not just uninterest in video, it is ignorance about it.

You missed the key point I made in my post; "For the vast majority of us". Apparently that doesn't include you.

You missed my point - if the vast majority do not see the advantage for video of the ZV-1 over the RX100 VA, that is due to ignorance of video and maybe the ZV-1. I do not think that includes you.
