In a recent update from a reliable source within the photography industry, it has been revealed that Sony could launch the Sony Alpa ZV-E10 Mark II as soon as "spring 2024", so potentially in March or April this year.
According to Mirrorless Rumors via Andrea Pizzini, the upcoming vlogging camera will replace the popular ZV-E10 which was released in 2021 and was Sony's first video-centric APS-C system camera. Despite not having a viewfinder, it gained popularity among content creators and social media influencers thanks to its fully articulated screen making it perfect for recording selfies, one-touch de-focus, a massive choice of lenses and an intuitive design.
Although specifications for the ZV-E10 Mark II are yet to be disclosed, industry enthusiasts speculate that it might feature a 26-megapixel sensor, similar to the Sony A6700 plus a range of AI-powered features aimed at enhancing the vlogger's productivity.
While this news may not be as thrilling for traditional photographers and hybrid shooters, the move signals Sony's dedication to the growing vlogging market. The current ZV-E10 is priced at AU$1,199 and it was the bestselling camera in Japan in 2023. It offers an affordable option for anyone looking to upgrade their photo and video capabilities from a camera phone without breaking the bank.
Over the last few years, there has been a recognisable shift in Sony's focus with more emphasis on addressing the needs of vloggers and older photographers in need of lightweight cameras. Industry analysts predict that Sony will continue to support this as its product lineup meets the demand for versatile, affordable cameras capable of producing high-quality photos and video.
Before its rumoured release early this year, the vlogger community can expect some new updates and leaked specs from reliable sources as is the case with most new releases.
