The Sony ZV-E10 II is designed for content creators, featuring a 26MP sensor, advanced autofocus, cinematic settings and improved battery life

Sony has unveiled the ZV-E10 II, the eagerly anticipated successor to its top-selling mirrorless ZV-E10 camera. Known for its user-friendly design and versatility, the original ZV-E10 quickly became a favorite among content creators.

The new ZV-E10 II builds on this legacy, offering enhanced sophistication and ease of use while maintaining beloved features like Creative Looks, Product Showcase Setting, Background Defocus function, and a vari-angle flip screen.

The ZV-E10 II comes with a significant hardware upgrade, boasting a 26-megapixel Exmor R™ CMOS sensor and the latest BIONZ XR™ image processing engine from Sony. Key enhancements include:

  • Improved Autofocus and Video Capabilities: Cinematic Vlog Setting, new vertical format UI, upgraded large-capacity battery, and improved connectivity for live streaming and data transfer.
  • Compact and Lightweight: Weighing just 377 grams, the ZV-E10 II fits comfortably in hand.

Sony also announced the E PZ 16-50MM F3.5-5.6 OSS II, a compact APS-C power zoom lens available separately or as part of the ZV-E10 II’s lens kit. This lens offers improved autofocus and video performance, making it a versatile addition to any creator’s toolkit.

To achieve creative looks and cinematic vlog setting, there are ten customisable options (e.g., Standard, Vivid, Sepia) with further editing through eight parameters, and the camera adjusts aspect ratio, frame rate, and AF transition speed for cinematic video capture.
