The Sony alpha ZV-E10 is a compact, interchangeable lens APS-C camera targeted primarily towards Vloggers and solo content creators.
Featuring a large 24.2MP APS-C Exmor CMOS Sensor paired with a fast BIONZ X processor the ZV-E10 is capable of producing 4K/30p (from an oversampled 6K signal) or 1080/120p video with a maximum bitrate of 100mbps and 24MP stills in either RAW or JPEG format.
HDR video is supported via HLG capture in addition to Sony’s S-Gamut3.Cine / S-Log3, S-Gamut3 / S-Log3 profiles.
Introducing vlog camera ZV-E10
With the ZV-E10, Sony has taken features (including the sensor) previously found on the popular a6100 and reconfigured them to better support video content creation.
It features Real-time Eye AF, face detection and touch tracking while recording video and subject recognition for both humans and animals when shooting stills.
There is also a flip-out, vari-angle touchscreen (with touch focus) which allows creators to view themselves while filming and a one-touch mode button that allows users to switch from stills to video with a single press.
A built-in, directional three-capsule microphone captures audio without the need for an external mic, although an external microphone can be attached via the Multi Interface (MI) shoe and external mic jack.
Sound recording can be monitored in real-time via the dedicated headphone jack.

The ZV-E10 also offers some new features that vloggers will find handy, including a variable soft skin effect, a background defocus button that toggles the bokeh effect on and off by changing aperture settings and a automatic product showcase mode that smoothly transitions focus to the object closest to the camera.
In addition to the battery, the camera can also be powered via USB C while streaming, extending the operational time beyond the 125 minutes maximum recording time that Sony says the battery is capable of.
