Cheap alternatives for Sony ZV-1

Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
Sony ZV-1
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Sony ZV-1
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.Has a built-in focus motor
Sony ZV-1
The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. For system cameras, having a focus motor in the camera's body allows you to use a wide range of lenses, including lenses which do not have their own focus motor. For compact cameras, a focus motor is usually built-in.
4.weight

294g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
5.has an optical viewfinder
Sony ZV-1
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens will capture. OVFs have no time lag and require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders, which can drain battery life. OVFs are also better in low light situations.
6.Has a hot shoe
Sony ZV-1
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.

Optics

1.sensor size

13.2 x 8.8mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
2.focus points

315

The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.
3.megapixels (main camera)

20.1MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
4.maximum light sensitivity

25600 ISO

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
5.continuous shooting at high resolution

24fps

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
6.has AF tracking
Sony ZV-1
With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

2160 x 30fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
2.Has phase-detection autofocus for videos
Sony ZV-1
A phase-detection autofocus system is faster than a contrast detection autofocus system. Even when recording scenes with a lot of fast movements, the videos are sharp and clear.
3.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Sony ZV-1
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
4.Has timelapse function
Sony ZV-1
A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.
5.has a 24p cinema mode
Sony ZV-1
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
6.supports slow-motion video recording
Sony ZV-1
Slow-motion is an artistic video effect that makes time seem to go slower. It is achieved by recording a video at a higher frame-rate than the standard playback rate of 24fps or 30fps. Frame rates for slow-motion videos vary between 60fps and 960fps.

Audio

1.has a stereo microphone
Sony ZV-1
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
2.has a microphone input
Sony ZV-1
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
3.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Sony ZV-1
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
4.Has a zoom microphone
Sony ZV-1
Zoom microphones record high-quality audio and enable you to record sound from a distance. They can be useful for recording meetings, lectures, and presentations.
5.has stereo speakers
Sony ZV-1
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.

Battery

1.Battery life (CIPA)

260shots

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
2.has a removable battery
Sony ZV-1
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
3.has a rechargeable battery
Sony ZV-1
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
4.has a battery level indicator
Sony ZV-1
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
5.battery power

1240mAh

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
6.has wireless charging
Sony ZV-1
The manufacturer offers a branded wireless charging kit. To charge the device, you simply put it down on its charging base.
