To cater to the ever-growing demands of digital content creators, Sony has introduced a new affordable mirrorless point and shoot camera. The Alpha ZV-E10 was first introduced in global markets a couple of months back and now makes its way into the country.
The Alpha ZV-E10 is a successor to last year’s Sony ZV-1 and borrows a lot – in terms of features – from its predecessor. The camera comes with a large 24-megapixel APS-C sensor and an interchangeable mirrorless mount that lets you use the lens according to the shooting environment.
In our review of Alpha ZV-E10, we found that it is indeed a “vlogging-focused camera with an articulating screen, boosted microphones, and a compact body, it’s a powerful little video tool and takes impressive photos. The ZV-E10 definitely isn’t perfect, with its three main limitations being significant rolling shutter when panning, a non-touch menu system, and no 4K capture at 60p (which isn’t common at the price). Get past those limitations though and you’ll find an affordable, video-focused hybrid with solid audio options.”
