The Sony ZV-E10 II is a sequel to Sony’s best vlogging camera

Sony’s ZV series of vlogging cameras is a little convoluted, but my personal favorite is the Sony ZV-E10, a camera that strikes the perfect balance between affordability and features. However, that isn’t to say that the camera wasn’t without its faults, criticized for its poor menus and limited streaming resolutions. Now Sony is hoping to address any shortcomings in a brand new update – the Sony ZV-E10 II.

A glance at the exterior of the ZV-E10 II, and you might not notice anything has changed from the previous version, with just a subtle update to the photo/video/S&Q button, becoming a three-way switch, and the on/off switch moving to underneath the shutter button. Yet, Sony engineers have also found a way to squeeze a Z-battery inside the grip, giving an additional 50% power improvement over the previous model which equates to 610 images or 130 mins of video. We praised the ZV-E10’s tiny vlogging-focused body with its decent grip and 3-in vari-angle screen, so no complaints here that Sony hasn’t tried to reinvent the wheel for its sequel.
