PowerShot V10 Overview
The PowerShot V10 is a vlog and still camera in a new highly portable form factor with components from the popular G-Series line that lets you create impressive videos on-the-go. With stereo sound capture, a built-in stand, and easy live streaming, this cam is ready to go when you are. Don’t let its size fool you, this is a vlogging studio in a compact package that can be operated with one hand to let you express your story!
Small, holdable, and pocketable
The small form factor of this camera makes it incredibly easy to hold and shoot video with. The thing that makes it really usable though is the simple menu systems, one button recording and that the camera powers up almost instantly, so it’s ready to go when you are.
Stand right there
With a built-in stand, this incredibly convenient feature allows you to place the camera almost anywhere to get the shots you need. It can lean the camera back or forward with 30 degrees of angle for both. You could even hold the camera by the handle upside down and the video will be reoriented.
Did you hear that?
Sound is just as crucial as video when vlogging, which is why we’ve included two large stereo microphones to capture your voice clearly, and a third microphone to help cancel out unwanted sounds. With the PowerShot V10, the whole studio is right in your hand.
Seeing the whole picture
The 19mm (35mm equivalent) lens on the V10 is perfect for getting yourself and anyone else you want into the frame, but more importantly, it’s wide-angle enough that if you are recording yourself, you don’t have to have your arm completely outstretched, so you look more natural.
How do I look?
With the 1” CMOS sensor you are going to look great, even in low light! The built-in subject detection helps to keep your face in focus and well-lit. The V10 also has image stabilization, exposure control, movie auto level, smooth skin movie mode, a built-in automatic ND-filter, and more!
By default the PowerShot V10 captures video horizontally, but that isn’t always what you need. Want to go vertical? No problem. Just turn the camera on its side and it will automatically change the aspect ratio to vertical.
What is a vlog shoot without some filters? The PowerShot V10 has 14 color filters built-in so you can change the mood and ambiance to fit the scene. There is also one extra filter – an automatic ND Filter (Neutral Density), which helps darken a video without affecting how the colors look.
It’s a still camera too!
The high-sensitivity 15.2-megapixel, 1-inch CMOS sensor captures some great images with Auto Photo mode (equivalent to A+ Scene Intelligent Auto).
Stream baby stream
The PowerShot V10 has a free companion app – Canon Camera Connect – that lets you communicate with a compatible smartphone via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
The PowerShot V10 has UVC (USB Video Class) support built-in, so it can work with any device that supports the UVC standard.
Sometimes you just want to share on the big screen right away, and you can! The PowerShot V10 has an HDMI micro-output port for such an occasion.
