Sony ZV-E10 Mirrorless Camera Body - Black
At its core, the ZV-E10 features a 24.2-megapixel* (approx. effective) APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processing engine to produce high-quality imagery with high-sensitivity, detailed texture depiction and beautiful natural bokeh. The ZV-E10 also includes the acclaimed vlogging-specific features favored in the popular ZV-1 digital camera, including; “Background Defocus”, “Product Showcase Setting” and “Face Priority AE” along with Sony’s highly acclaimed autofocus. Take your vlogging to the next level with the ZV-E10.
Find a lens to match your style
Professional-looking vlogs are easy with the interchangeable lens ZV-E10 camera. Thanks to Sony's extensive range of E-mount lenses, you have a wide variety to capture the world however you choose to see it. Incorporate background scenery into your script with a wide-angle lens, or make the subject grab the viewer's attention by using a wide aperture lens with an artfully blurred background. Move in closer with a macro lens or pull in distant scenes with a telephoto lens. Choose how you see the world and pick the lens that matches your style.
A large-format image sensor for professional-quality images
The ZV-E10's impressive images are the result of the camera's large 24.2 MP* APS-C Exmor image sensor. Compared to other cameras, the image sensor of the ZV-E10 is more than ten times* bigger than a smartphone sensor and three times bigger than a premium 1” sensor found in compact cameras, allowing for beautiful, professional-looking images with high resolution and intricate detail.
High-quality images with minimal noise
The ZV-E10's large-format image sensor is designed to maximize light collection, producing 4K movies with high-quality images and less noise, even when you're shooting in a dimly lit setting.
Instant easy access to controls
When you're shooting a vlog session, the last thing you want to do is fumble for buttons. With the ZV-E10 you'll find the MOVIE button right on top, for quick access. There's also a handy zoom lever10, and a mode button that lets you easily switch between Still/Movie/S&Q to access still images, normal videos and Slow & Quick Motion modes.
Designed for simple selfie and vlog shoots
Weighing in at just 12.8 ounces (364 grams)11, the ZV-E10 is ready to hit the road with you whenever you're ready to vlog. The side-opening vari-angle LCD screen makes it easy to take selfies and check your framing, even when you're shooting from high or low positions. Even the ergonomic grip is designed for a safe and stable hold.
4K video with oversampling for greater detail
The ZV-E10 delivers extremely detailed and crisp 4K from direct pixel readout and no pixel binning. Using the full width of the 24.2MP sensor means it oversamples roughly the equivalent of 6K, approximately 2.4 times10 the actual resolution needed to produce its highly detailed 4K video.
Let Real-time AF Tracking do the focusing for you
The ZV-E10’s Al (Artificial Intelligence) 13 driven Real-time AF Tracking is intuitive to use. Simply touch the monitor to indicate the subject on which you want to focus and Real-time Tracking will take it from there, keeping a steady hold on the subject.
Fast, precise autofocus
Even quick-moving subjects stay in focus thanks to the ZV-E10's Fast Hybrid AF system. With 425 phase-detection points covering around 84% of the sensor's image area, this wide coverage and dense AF point placement help to precisely capture subjects that might otherwise be difficult to focus on.
Protection against recording failures
You won’t be caught off-guard asking “Are we recording?” or miss a moment because you thought you were but weren’t. The ZV-E10 tells you at-a-glance if you’re recording or not. A tally (recording) lamp on the front of the camera lights up in red and the LCD monitor displays a bold red frame, letting you and your subject know when recording is in progress.
Easy background blur control
There's no need for complicated manual adjustments — the Background Defocus feature lets you simply press a single button to turn background blurring (bokeh) on and off. The button switches between the attached lens’s maximum aperture for a blurred, bokeh-rich background and either f/8 or f/11 (depending on lens) for a clearly focused one14, skipping all the complex manual settings. A defocused background highlights you or your subject, while having everything in focus is great for showing a location or setting.
Precise focus transitions for smooth-looking product reviews
With just the press of a button, you can activate the ZV-E10’s Product Showcase Setting, ideal for product review videos. With the setting activated, whenever you hold a product up in front of the camera the focus will shift automatically to that object and then back to your face again when you move the product out of frame. This setting is available even when image stabilization is set to Active.
Leave it up to the camera to focus on you
With the ZV-E10 you can concentrate on the more creative aspects of vlogging. The camera's Eye AF feature uses sophisticated algorithms to detect, recognize and track a subject's eyes quickly and accurately, keeping a tight focus on a person's eyes.
Smooth, soft skin appearance
The ZV-E10 features a Soft Skin Effect to smooth your skin's appearance. The feature is designed to smooth out your skin while preserving sharpness in the eye and mouth regions. You can select from four levels (from "off to "high") to determine the level of this effect, depending on your preference.
Stay brightly lit wherever you go
Even when lighting conditions change abruptly, theZV-E10 makes sure that you'll always be brightly lit. From direct sunlight and backlit angles to shadows and dimly lit interior corners, the camera detects the subject's face and automatically handles changes in brightness, performing rapid exposure adjustments to compensate. And if you or your subjects face is no longer visible in the frame, the camera will adjust exposure smoothly to avoid harsh shifts in image brightness levels for a more pleasing movie.
Natural-looking skin tones
The ZV-E10 is designed to produce healthy and natural-looking skin tones for everyone without extra editing. Thanks to the ZV-E10’s natural color tuning, the camera automatically fine-tunes skin appearance.
Easy speed-up and slowed-down motion
The camera's S&Q (Slow & Quick) Motion modes record videos up to 5x slower than real time or up to 60x faster. You can record at up to 50 Mbps with full HD quality, and it's all done in-camera, so you don't need to do any editing on a PC. You can also capture highspeed full HD recording at 120fps to create high-resolution slow-motion sequences in post-production.
Designed for clear voice recording
Equipped with a built-in Directional 3-Capsule Mic, the ZV-E10 records voices clearly even in crowded settings. It's optimized to capture voices in front of the camera with fewer distracting ambient sounds, perfect for vlogging use. For clear recording even outdoors, the ZV-E10 is supplied with a wind screen that can easily be attached to the Multi Interface (MI) Shoe to reduce wind noise, allowing worry-free recording when shooting in windy conditions.
Smooth and stable images even while walking
The ZV-E10 will help keep things smooth and steady when you're on the move. Active Mode electronic image stabilization delivers stable video footage with minimal shake and blur during hand-held recording, and it's available even when the Product Showcase Setting is on.
Easy sound monitoring
Make sure that you're getting exactly the audio stream that you're hoping for. The ZV-E10 features a standard 3.5mm headphone output so you can connect a set of headphones to monitor whether the audio is being properly recorded.
For even higher audio quality
Unlike conventional analog audio transmission, you'll never need to worry about cable signal interference. Just pair the ZV-E10 with any Sony microphone that supports a Digital Audio Interface via an MI Shoe for clear, low-noise, all-digital audio. In addition, the ZV-E10 supports analogue MI shoe microphones, or you can connect a microphone via the 3.5mm mic jack located above the LCD when flipped out so cables don’t get in the way of the screen.
Vertical shooting without complications
Movies shot in a vertical orientation for some social media applications can be viewed the same way on a PC or smartphone, thanks to metadata recorded by the camera18. There's no need to rotate the video manually, convenient when you're sharing your work on social media.
Transfer to a smartphone for quick sharing
The ZV-E10 makes it easy to share 4K movies and still images after shooting. Even when the camera is turned off, your images can continue to be transferred wirelessly from the camera to a smartphone, to be shared as soon as you're ready.
Optional grip for easy one-handed operation
The Bluetooth®-enabled GP-VPT2BT grip (sold separately) provides easy, cable-free remote control of recording and zoom functions along with a custom button. Zoom and record operations are accessible for one-handed shooting, and the Background Defocus (Bokeh) Switch is also assigned by default to an easy-to-reach button for operation with a single touch.
Add special effects in-camera
You can switch up your colors to create a variety of artistic effects without any additional post-production. Just change the Creative Style setting or choose from seven* different visual effects using Picture Effect mode.
Flexible control over color tones with S-Log3 support
If you want greater flexibility in adjusting colors during post-production, you'll appreciate the ZV-E10's support for S-Log3, the standard for maximizing sensor performance in professional cameras. S-Log3 allows for a wide dynamic range, giving you the increased visual data you need for greater color control during post-production editing on a PC.
Edit movies from your smartphone
Movie footage shot with the camera is easy to edit on a smartphone using the Movie Edit add-on from the Imaging Edge TM Mobile app. The image stabilization feature uses the camera's gyro sensor data to smooth out the video and compensate for camera shake. There's also an intelligent framing feature that uses camera data to let you crop video and change aspect ratios while ensuring that the main subject remains in the frame.
Fine-tune your transitions when you switch focus
When you switch focus from one subject to another, you'll enjoy fine-tuned control over AF Transition Speed. Transition speed controls whether to perform a quick autofocus transition or a more gradual one, with seven different levels available.
Create time-lapse movies
With the ZV-E10's interval shooting mode 21 you can create evocative time-lapse movies assembled from still shots. The shooting interval can be adjusted from 1-60 seconds between shots, with up to 9,999 shots possible. You can see an in-camera preview of what the finished movie will look like, then use Sony's free Imaging Edge Desktop on a PC to put together the final footage.
Produce 4K HDR movies with true-to-life colors
Natural, realistic-looking colors in 4K HDR movies can be achieved without post-production or color grading, thanks to the camera's support for recording 4K HDR (High Dynamic Range) footage using the preset HLG picture profile.
Handle long shooting sessions without battery worries
When you're shooting outdoors or anywhere without a power supply, you can rely on the camera's battery to power up to 125 minutes24 of continuous movie shooting or up to 440 still images25. The camera also supports external power through a USB Type-C® connector, allowing an external mobile battery to further extend your recording time.
Switch to AC power when you need to shoot for longer durations
When you're live-streaming or just engaging in an extended indoor shoot with access to an AC power supply, you can use an AC adaptor like the AC-PW20AM (sold separately) and never have to worry about running out of battery power.
Live-stream setup is easy
With a single cable, the ZV-E10 can be used as an online communication tool, taking advantage of its large sensor and built-in mic. To use the ZV-E10 as an external camera, connect it to a PC23 or a Sony XperiaTM smartphone22 via a USB Type-C cable connection. You can also assign USB Streaming mode to a custom button for quick streaming.
