Canon has introduced the PowerShot V10, a lightweight and easy-to-use vlogging camera for those who want to take friends and followers along on their adventures, without having to carry a lot of equipment. Weighing just over 211 grams, the compact PowerShot V10 offers lifestyle and travel content creators an all-in-one solution that combines high-quality microphones with a built-in stand. It allows users to produce compelling content for their communities, thanks to 4K UHD movie recording and professional looking background blur.
The sturdy vertical body is an entirely new design for Canon – a device so portable and unobtrusive that creators can comfortably blend in when recording themselves in crowded places. Never miss spontaneous moments and candid reactions, as the centred record button is tailor-made for quick and agile one-handed camera control.
The PowerShot V10 features a large 1-inch CMOS sensor capable of delivering stunning 4K video quality, while also offering stills shooting capabilities. For added cinematic atmosphere, creators can quickly switch up the ambiance using any of the 14 included colour filter effects and Smooth Skin mode.
The Movie Digital IS mode is suitable for handheld videography as it helps with reducing camera shake, offering sharper, cleaner footage with more detail and clarity.
Matching the broad capabilities of various social media platforms, the PowerShot V10 can shoot in both orientations and record up to an hour of continuous video. On top of this, its auto level feature can help keep video straight and avoid slanted clips, reducing time needed to edit content.
The PowerShot V10 is equipped with two large stereo microphones designed for narration and a third audio noise reduction microphone.
Housed in a vertical body and designed with simplicity in mind, the PowerShot V10 can be operated almost completely single-handedly. Equipped with a 2.0-inch LCD touchscreen which you can flip to the front, perfect for self-vlogging or recording others, it lends itself to handheld shooting. A built-in stand gives the option to record more free-standing content like cooking tutorials, hauls or popular formats like ‘Get Ready With Me’ and ‘Unboxing’ or listicle videos.
The PowerShot V10 is fully compatible with Canon Camera Connect app, so users can transfer videos to a smartphone or tablet over Wi-Fi with ease. Managing video workflow is achieved via built-in image.canon integration for temporary cloud storage, from which users can directly transfer to their platform of choice. It also includes both HDMI and USB ports for easy transfers to a laptop or PC, or to use as a webcam. For those who are constantly out and about, the device can be recharged on the go via USB-C.
The camera allows users to take content straight from the camera to their viewers, with simplified live streaming capabilities included in the PowerShot V10 – allowing users to go live to their followers with dedicated menu options for live streaming on YouTube and Facebook.
