Sony ZV-E10 Mirrorless Camera & 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6/PZ OSS Lens Review - Verdict


Sony ZV-E10 Mirrorless Camera & 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6/PZ OSS Lens Review - Verdict: Sony ZV-E10

Value For Money

There are three purchase options:

Perhaps the main competitor is Sony's own ZV-1 Vlogging camera, based on a compact camera design using a 1.0 sensor and with a fixed 24-70mm equivalent lens. This has similar functionality and operation, but not the same quality level that an APS-C sensor can offer.

You'll also need to buy a (large) memory card and a case or bag to keep your camera safe and protected - have a look at our complete guide to camera bags.


Sony ZV-E10 Mirrorless Camera Verdict

If I were a vlogger, or aspiring to be one, then the Sony ZV-E10 with its 16-50mm pancake lens would be a very serious contender. The larger APS-C sensor, built-in multi-directional microphone, easy connectivity and the useful, perhaps essential, accessories available all make the kit perfect for setting out on a vlogging career. Frankly, the compact form factor also means that the kit is not a burden to carry out in the field, thus encouraging its use wherever we might go.


Sony ZV-E10 Mirrorless Camera  Pros

  • Light and compact
  • Capable of high-quality results
  • Excellent connectivity
  • Keenly priced
  • Easy vlogging solution
  • Wide potential in lens range available

Sony ZV-E10 Mirrorless Camera  Cons

  • Some controls fiddly
  • No weather resistance
  • Zoom action is not easy to keep smooth when handheld
  • OSS in lenses only

You have to be quick on the reviews now with the short interval until production gets suspended! Pity this cheaper attractive option is apparently not in production at present. Heaven knows who will be left in the game at the end of 2022 and what it will cost to stay in the hobby. Sad
