Sony’s ZV line is designed to foster the skills and creativity of content creators and vloggers. The series began with the release of the ZV-1 in 2020. Since then, the cameras have continued to improve and evolve. In 2021, Sony released the ZV-E10 to great fanfare, positioning it as the perfect camera for beginners and enthusiasts. Sony fans flocked in droves to get their hands on this compact and versatile camera. Sony has come forth once again with another showstopper, this time in the form of the brand-new Sony ZV-E10 II.

If you’re expecting only minor upgrades and fun additions, you’re in for a surprise because the ZV-E10 II features some significant enhancements that place it in a league of its own. The camera is powered with a 26-megapixel Back-illuminated APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor and BIONZ XR image processing engine, perfect for high-speed shooting and creating stunning visuals.

The ZV-E10 II’s high-performance autofocus ensures you capture every detail of your subject without missing a beat. With 759 phase-detection points, the camera is highly accurate even in low light, and its autofocus algorithms can achieve high precision down to EV -3.0*2. The touch screen’s touch tracking allows you to tap to select your subject, and the camera’s Real-time Tracking will maintain focus until you capture the perfect shot. Real-time Eye autofocus is also available for both videos and stills.

Sony’s Creative Look, first seen with the release of the Sony α7S III in 2020, is featured in the ZV-E10 II. This feature lets you create your preferred mood or atmosphere, significantly expanding your creative expression. Creative Look offers 10 presets, giving you the freedom to create stunning still images.

The Sony ZV-E10 II’s video capabilities are equally impressive. With 4K60/50p recording, the Super 35mm (16:9) format utilises oversampling from 5.6K, resulting in exceptional image quality. This setup allows for shooting with 10/8bit, Long GOP/All-I, H.264/H.265 formats, with an approximate 1.1x crop, enhancing both the versatility and quality of your video projects.

Sony continues to innovate and lead in the world of vlogging cameras, and the ZV-E10 II is a testament to that commitment. The company consistently pushes the boundaries of technology and design, ensuring that their products not only meet but exceed the expectations of photographers of all skill levels.
