A large-format image sensor for professional-quality images
The ZV-E10's impressive images are the result of the camera's large 24.2MP APS-C Exmor image sensor. Compared to other cameras, the image sensor of the ZV-E10 is more than ten times bigger than a smartphone sensor and three times bigger than a premium 1” sensor found in compact cameras, allowing for beautiful, professional-looking images with high resolution and intricate detail.
High-quality images with minimal noise
The ZV-E10's large-format image sensor is designed to maximize light collection, producing 4K movies with high-quality images and less noise, even when you're shooting in a dimly lit setting.
Instant easy access to controls
When you're shooting a vlog session, the last thing you want to do is fumble for buttons. With the ZV-E10 you'll find the MOVIE button right on top, for quick access. There's also a handy zoom lever, and a mode button that lets you easily switch between Still/Movie/S&Q to access still images, normal videos and Slow & Quick Motion modes.

4K video with oversampling for greater detail
The ZV-E10 delivers extremely detailed and crisp 4k from direct pixel readout and no pixel binning. Using the full width of the 24.2MP sensor, means it oversamples roughly the equivalent of 6k, approximately 2.4 times the actual resolution needed to produce its highly detailed 4 video.
Let Real-time AF Tracking do the focusing for you
The ZV-E10's Al (Artificial Intelligence) driven Real-time AF Tracking is intuitive to use. Simply touch the monitor to indicate the subject you want to focus on and Real-time Tracking will take it from there, keeping a steady hold on the subject.
Fast, precise autofocus
Even quick-moving subjects stay in focus thanks to the ZV-E10's Fast Hybrid AF system. With 425 phase-detection points covering around 84% of the sensor's image area, this wide coverage and dense AF point placement help to precisely capture subjects that might otherwise be difficult to focus on.
Easy background blur control
There's no need for complicated manual adjustments — the Background Defocus features lets you simple press a single button to turn background blurring (bokeh) on and off. The button switches between the attached lenses maximum aperture for a blurred, bokeh-rich background and either f/8 or f/11 (depending on lens) for a clearly focused one, skipping all the complex manual settings. A defocused background highlights you or your subject , while having everything in focus is great for showing a location or setting.
Precise focus transitions for smooth-looking product reviews
With just the press of a button, you can activate the ZV-E10's Product Showcase Setting, ideal for product review videos. With the setting activated, whenever you hold a product up in front of the camera the focus will shift automatically to that object and then back to your face again when you move the product out of frame. This setting is available even when image stabilization is set to Active.
Stay brightly lit wherever you go
Even when lighting conditions change abruptly, the ZV-E1O makes sure that you'll always be brightly lit. From direct sunlight and backlit angles to shadows and dimly lit interior corners, the camera detects the subject's face and automatically handles changes in brightness, performing rapid exposure adjustments to compensate. And if you or your subjects face is no longer visible in the frame, the camera will adjust exposure smoothly to avoid harsh shifts in image brightness levels for a more pleasing movie.
Easy speed-up and slowed-down motion
The camera's S&Q (Slow & Quick) Motion modes record videos up to 5x slower than real time or up to 60x faster You can record at up to 50 Mbps with full HD quality, and it's all done in-camera, so you don't need to do any editing on a PC. You can also do highspeed full HD recording at 120fps to create high-resolution slow-motion sequences in post-production.
Designed for clear voice recording
Equipped with a built-in Directional 3-Capsule Mic, the ZV-EIO records voices clearly even in crowded settings. It's optimized to capture voices in front of the camera with fewer distracting ambient sounds, perfect for vlogging use.

Transfer to a smartphone for quick sharing
The ZV-E1O makes it easy to share 4K movies and still images after shooting. Even when the camera is turned off, your images can continue to be transferred wirelessly from the camera to a smartphone, to be shared as soon as you're ready.
Flexible control over color tones with S-Log3 support
If you want greater flexibility in adjusting colors during post-production, you'll appreciate the ZV-E10's support for S-Log3, the standard for maximizing sensor performance in professional cameras. S-Log3 allows for a wide dynamic range, giving you the increased visual data you need for greater color control during post-production editing on a PC.
