Sony ZV-E10 review

The Sony ZV-E10 is not just Sony’s best APS-C camera so far for newbie vloggers, it's also its cheapest!

Digital Camera World Verdict

The ZV-E10 is a very likeable little camera that doesn’t really break any new ground technically, and even ditches a few features that stills photographers would like to have, but for novice vloggers it’s a pretty good camera. It has 4K video, Sony’s excellent autofocus system, a vari-angle screen and a clip on muffler to cut wind noise. Best of all, against a backdrop of steadily climbing prices, it’s rather good value too. The lack of in-body stabilization and noticeable rolling shutter are downsides, though.

Sony has called its new camera the ZV-E10, presumably to distinguish it from its long running series of A6000 cameras. It did the same with its pocket-sized Sony ZV-1, which is essentially a cheaper vlogging version of the rather pricey RX100 series cameras.
