This is close to the all-time low on the product, which was £438.99 according to the Keepa price-tracking graph on Amazon.

This model arrived in the summer of 2020 and our reviewer called it “the all-in-one device vloggers have been waiting for.” We gave it a four-star review in that summer, where loads of people felt it would be a great idea to start their own channels.

Our reviewer concluded: “It doesn’t matter if you’re a newcomer or an established online personality, the Sony ZV-1 offers a class-leading all-in-one experience that’s near-perfect for vloggers. The unbelievable microphone quality, complemented by top-tier autofocus and a dedicated bokeh button makes it an absolute joy to use.”
