Canon has announced the PowerShot V10, a compact camera aimed at the vlogging crowd.
This pocket-sized, vertically-aligned video specialist weighs just 211g, which is about the same as your average flagship smartphone. It’s also small enough to fit in a pocket.
Its primary function is to provide shake-free 4K 30fps video recording using a relatively large 20.9-megapixel 1-inch CMOS sensor and a wide-angle lens. It also provides the ability to shoot 15.2-megapixel stills, and there are also 14 unique colour filters together with a Smooth Skin mode.
The promise of “professional looking background blur”, together with a built-in stand and a 2-inch reversible LCD, as well as a a pair of high-quality stereo microphones (with a third on noise reduction duty), shows that its targeting vloggers looking to up their self-shot video game whilst out and about.
Whether it’s in with a chance of joining our Best Vlogging Camera list remains to be seen.
It can shoot up to an hour of high quality 4K video, while a Movie Digital IS mode promises to keep handheld footage nice and steady. It’ll even keep your footage level automatically, cutting down that editing time. The V10 also comes with a 3.5mm mic jack and a Micro HDMI port, while Wi-Fi connectivity and compatibility with the Canon Camera Connect smartphone app should help you share your footage wireless.
