Our review

The video-centric Sony ZV-1 Mark II has excellent rolling shutter, industry-leading autofocus and a very nice selfie-friendly zoom lens, but runs into issues with short battery life and flat out-of-camera audio. The camera thrives in auto modes, making it best suited for users seeking a simple-to-use camera.

Good for: Video creators seeking a feature-packed dedicated device without a large learning curve.

Not so good for: Video creators desiring manual controls and still photographers seeking a pocketable compact.
