Canon PowerShot V10 is the company’s first compact camera specifically designed for vlogging

    Canon has announced the PowerShot V10, its first compact camera specifically designed for vlogging.

    The lightweight and easy-to-use vlogging camera is targeted towards those who want to take friends and followers along on their adventures, without having to carry a lot of equipment.

    The new compact PowerShot V10 weighs just over 211 grams and should be well suited for lifestyle and travel content creators that are searching for a dedicated camera, rather than just using their smartphone. It features high-quality microphones and a built-in stand, perfect for those creators who want to capture both handheld and stationary footage.

    The V10 offers a 4K video quality with a professional-looking background blur. The sturdy vertical body is an entirely new design for Canon. The centred record button is designed to allow rapid recording so you don’t miss a moment and to be honest, would be a lot faster than unlocking your phone, firing up the camera app and tapping record.

    Great video quality, right in the palm of your hand

    The PowerShot V10 features a large 1″ 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 ideal 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 your video straight and avoid slanted clips, reducing the time needed to edit your content.

    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, allowing you to easily capture emotions and create that intimacy between you and your viewers. 

    The built-in stand gives you 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.

    High-quality sound

    Perfect for any outdoor or urban environment, the PowerShot V10 is equipped with two large stereo microphones designed for narration and a third audio noise reduction microphone.

    Connecting you to your followers – no matter where you are

    The PowerShot V10 is fully compatible with Canon Camera Connect app, so you can transfer your videos to a smartphone or tablet over Wi-Fi with ease. Canon considered common workflows with built-in support for image.Canon, their temporary cloud storage, from which you can directly transfer to your platform of choice.

    Its smart, intuitive design 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.

    Take your content straight from the camera to your viewers, with simplified live streaming capabilities included in the PowerShot V10 – allowing you to go live to your followers with dedicated menu options for live streaming on YouTube and Facebook.
