Perfect for vloggers, the Sony ZV-E10 pairs a large APS-C sensor and mirrorless versatility with a specialized feature-set built just for content creators. Improving upon the ubiquitous smartphone, the ZV-E10 is an Alpha camera that brings improved image quality, greater choice of lenses, and increased control to up your creativity when shooting.

Taking a concept that originated with the ZV-1, the ZV-E10 is the mirrorless continuation of this idea of a camera built around the concept of vlogging. It's a highly capable and portable camera but incorporates a series of design choices and shooting modes that are ideal for single-person productions. A vari-angle screen lets you accurately frame up shots, the integrated directional mic is purpose-built for recording more accurate sound from front-facing subjects, and shooting modes like Background Defocus and Product Showcase help you highlight specific subjects with ease.
Vlogging Features
Optimized Camera Design
  • Rear 3.0" 921.6k-dot touchscreen LCD features a side flip-out design that is ideal for filming yourself or taking selfies in a natural and intuitive manner.
  • Side-opening screen allows for a redesigned top plate, which incorporates a directional 3-capsule microphone that is specifically designed for forward-directional audio recording. Also, a dedicated wind screen for the built-in mic is included to help achieve cleaner audio when working outdoors. It attaches using the supplied wind screen adapter, which mounts into the shoe mount on the top of the camera and holds the wind screen to the side.
  • Both 3.5mm microphone and headphone ports are also featured for more advanced audio recording, and the Multi Interface Shoe also benefits audio recording capabilities. This accessory shoe supports a digital audio interface that helps to achieve lower noise during recording and also eliminates cable clutter and the need for external power when working with compatible shoe-mounted mics.
  • Front tally lamp serves as a visual indicator for when recording is occurring. Also, the LCD can display a red border frame to further serve as an additional recording indicator.
  • Live streaming is possible directly from the camera simply by connecting the camera to a computer or compatible mobile device via USB, allowing the camera's video and audio capabilities to be used for live social media and video conferencing. UVC and UAC standards are supported for improved picture and sound quality during streaming.
Specialized Shooting Modes
  • Product Showcase setting is ideal for vlogging and product review or demonstration videos and allows for quick and smooth focus transitions between a subject's face and an object placed in front of the lens.
  • Face-Priority AE detects the subject's face and adjusts the exposure to ensure the face is depicted in an ideal brightness, even if walking from a bright place into shade. The AE technology also suppresses abrupt changes in exposure if the subject quickly turns away from the frame to eliminate unexpected blown-out or extremely dark shots.
  • Refined color science helps to optimize skin tones for any subject, in both still and video modes, in order to achieve a healthy and natural look that is inclusive of different ages, genders, and ethnicity.
  • Soft Skin Effect can be used to soften and smooth wrinkles or blemishes on a subject's face to create a natural, smooth complexion. The default setting is Mid and can be adjusted to Off, Low, or Hi. For longer takes, extended continuous video recording is available when setting the Auto Power OFF Temp. function to High.
  • Background Defocus lets you immediately switch to the maximum aperture setting of the attached lens, using a custom button function, for isolating your subject using shallow depth of field and bokeh.
  • Movie footage can be tagged with specific metadata to indicate vertical recording orientation for direct playback in smartphone apps or for other instances when vertical video playback is needed.
  • Active SteadyShot is an advanced image stabilization mode that ensures steady video while moving, even when handheld shooting while walking.
Image Quality, Autofocus, and 4K Video
24.2MP APS-C Exmor CMOS Sensor and BIONZ X Processor
  • A revised APS-C-format 24.2MP Exmor CMOS sensor realizes smooth, nuanced image quality with minimal noise and high sensitivity from ISO 100-32000, which can further be expanded to ISO 51200 for working in low-light conditions.
  • The sensor dimensions are approximately 3x larger than a 1" sensor, and up to 10x larger than some smartphone sensors, enabling greater sensitivity, reduced noise, and improved control over depth of field.
  • The sensor and BIONZ X processor combination also avails a top continuous-shooting rate of 11 fps with AF and AE and permits 14-bit raw file output for a wide tonal and color scale.
425-Point Fast Hybrid AF
  • The sensor's design incorporates a 425-point Fast Hybrid AF system, which blends both phase-detection and contrast-detection methods to achieve focusing performance that is fast, natural, and accurate.
  • The on-chip focusing system covers 84% of the sensor field and is capable of achieving focus in as little as 0.02 sec.
  • Real-time Eye AF can prioritize focusing on human or animal eyes for ensured sharpness when making portraits. When selected, this function is activated by half-pressing the shutter button and you can further choose to prioritize either the right or left eye.
  • Real-time tracking utilizes AI-based algorithms to automatically recognize and track moving subjects. If Face/Eye Priority AF is on, this tracking method will further track a subject's eye or face in real time with seamless changing depending on the status of the moving subject.
4K Video Recording
  • UHD 4K video recording is possible up to 30p and uses full pixel readout with 6K oversampling to yield greater detail with reduced moiré and aliasing. Full HD 1080p recording is also supported in frame rates up to 120 fps, and both resolutions utilize the 100 Mb/s XAVC S format contained within an MP4 wrapper with 4:2:0 sampling. In addition to high-resolution internal recording, uncompressed HDMI output also enables the use of an optional external recorder for clean 4K recording with 4:2:2 sampling.
  • No recording limit for movie recording, allowing for longer takes and uninterrupted shooting of live events.
  • Affording extensive customizable color and gamma controls, the ZV-E10 allows users to adjust the gamma, black level, knee, color level, and more. Use the same S-Log2 Gamma Curve that is found on high-end Sony Cinema cameras, which squeezes up to 1300% more dynamic range into the video signal then traditional Rec. 709, for increased post-production flexibility. HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) support is also available, along with the BT.2020 color space, for recording within a wide color gamut and, in addition to S-Log2, S-Log3 is also available for producing an effective 14-stop dynamic range with increased grading control in the shadow to mid-tone regions of the image.
  • Slow & Quick (S&Q) mode allows shooters to capture Full HD video at specified steps between 1-120 fps. These settings will allow you to slow down action as well as speed up a slow-moving scene.
  • Interval shooting mode is ideal for creating time-lapse movies with the aid of Imaging Edge software. Intervals can be selected between 1-60 seconds for recording up to 9999 sequential free. Also, in-camera battery charging is possible via the USB port using a portable battery to benefit long interval shooting sessions.
Physical Design and Wireless Connectivity
Camera Body Design
  • Built for portable applications and one-handed use, the camera incorporates a large right-hand grip and intuitive physical control layout.
  • Grip design, along with the vari-angle LCD, also suits working from front-facing angles, such as when vlogging or taking selfies.
  • Integrated zoom lever surrounds the shutter button and works in conjunction with select Power Zoom lenses.
  • Vari-angle screen can be closed against the body, with the screen facing inward, to automatically power off the camera even when the power switch is set to 'On'.
  • Dedicated Movie Record, Background Defocus, Product Showcase, and S&Q buttons provide direct access to common features used by vloggers.
  • Included NP-FW50 battery is rated for up to 440 shots or approximately 125 minutes of recording per charge. Power can also be supplied to the camera through the USB Type-C port or by using the optional AC-PW20AM AC adapter.
Wireless and Sharing
  • Built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity enables instant transferring of imagery to mobile devices for direct sharing online to social networking, via email, and to cloud storage sites. Once connected, the linked mobile device can also display a live view image on its screen and, using Smart Remote Control, remotely control the camera's shutter release.
  • The ZV-E10 is also compatible with the Movie Edit add-on from the Imaging Edge mobile app.
  • Bluetooth connectivity enables connecting to the optional GP-VPT2BT Wireless Shooting Grip for efficient camera control.

I recently bought this camera because I wanted to better the content quality on my YouTube channel and I have been pleased with it. There are some shortcomings of this camera but like any other camera, this is no different. Rolling Shutter and the build quality are the most annoying/con of this camera that you can't wrap your mind around. The rolling shutter as you might have seen on the youtube reviews of this camera is pretty bad and the build quality is very plastic-ish/cheap. But there are also some pros of this camera, like the incredible sensor of this camera that lets you record up to 4k 24 uncropped and 4k 30 cropped. The kit lens it comes with does no magic but with the right lens, this camera is incredible. I have the Sigma 18-50 mm lens which does magic on this little camera, video quality and photo quality sky rockets on this when you start using better lenses, no surprise there. This is perhaps the best entry point to the sony mirrorless camera system because of the flip screen and decent audio quality from the on board mic but more over on the lens collection of the e mounts and perhaps the best beginner/entry point camera for the e mount camera for content creators.

LOVE this camera!

I purchased the Sony ZV-E10 after months and months of research (tell me I'm not the only one who's slow to pull the trigger on new camera purchases!!!). After all the research, once I got my hands on this camera I knew it was a perfect match for me. I'm using it for video work, and have captured some amazing footage at my kids sporting events. It works great outdoors (soccer matches) as well as indoors - the color is phenomenal even with all the fluorescent lights on the basketball court. The kit lens is solid - it's a great focal length for events where I can get close to the action, and decent for catching action on a larger soccer field (although I'd like to eventually update my lens). Overall this camera is everything I was hoping for and more - if you're on the fence, I recommend buying this one!

Loving my new camera!

B&H delivered and I'm so glad I ordered through them instead of Amazon because I was able to get the camera and the SD card at the same time. But the extra incentive was the free additional battery that B&H threw in. Everything was delivered super fast and in perfect condition. The camera is lightweight and easy to use. I've filmed a few videos and the 4K is wonderful - such great quality. As a new YouTuber, this was a terrific investment.

Delivers as promised.

This is a great camera for a lightweight vloging camera that still behaves as a normal camera. Also great for beginners, just getting in to photography. Great for street photography and product photography for the internet.

With this being my first camera, I chose an entry level option and this has turned out to be such an amazing upgrade from a cellular camera. Will definitely be buying more lenses for this camera!

Great Value Camera for Travel and Content Creation

By Timothy

I chose the Sony ZV-E10 over the Nikon Z30 and Fujifilm X-S10 for four main reasons: 1. Better autofocus than the competition. 2. Lighter rig due to better/lighter lens selections (Sony 11mm F/1.8). 3. Sony community. There is more information to help with getting the most out of Sony cameras than the competition. 4. Less expensive than the Fujifilm X-S10. 5. Usage of Gyroscopic data for post production stabilization (Catalyst Browse). Main Cons compared to competition: 1. Lacks IBIS that is included with the Fujifilm X-S10. 2. Nikon Z30 and Fujifilm have better kit lenses. 3. Heavier crops for active stabilization and 4k 30fps. A note about stabilization that I noticed that I did not find in my research: BOTH digital stabilization and post-processing stabilization work better with shutter speeds over 1/200. IBIS and Lens stabilization ONLY don't do much for video. High shutter speeds are usually only mentioned as a CON of using post-production programs like Catalyst Browse (which is the only thing I'm aware of that comes close to replacing a gimbal. Yes, you sacrifice motion blur effects.

The biggest difference between them is the A6600's in-body image stabilization system and use of the larger capacity NP-FZ100 battery. Aside from that, their technical specifications are quite similar, but there have been several physical changes to the body that make it more convenient for video-centric users.
