Canon announces the PowerShot V10, a new video-centric concept camera designed for smartphone natives. With its slim, ergonomic form factor and seamless, high-quality footage, the PowerShot V10 marries Canon’s imaging technologies with pocketable design.
Small in Package, Big on Content
Beneath its petite 9cm-long body, the PowerShot V10 is a video content creation powerhouse. An integrated retractable, tiltable stand unfolds to provide tripod-like support whenever and wherever you need it: no more scrambling for random supportive objects that leave you with little control over your angles.
There is also a built-in large-diameter three-element microphone that cancels noise and produces clear, high-quality audio, perfect for creating videos with that ASMR (Autonomous sensory meridian response) effect.
It’s your new 3-in-1 content creation kit essential for anything from travel vlogging, breakdancing demos, cinematography experiments, to on-location livestreams. It fits in a small bag with room to spare, along with your smartphone, earbuds, and powerbank.
Superior Image Quality
Canon’s EOS imaging technology allows the PowerShot V10 to produce stunning, low-noise footage with vivid colours, even in low-light venues with “romantic” mood lighting. Get ready to impress your audience with clear and beautiful footage from the PowerShot V10.
With various shooting modes that include auto and manual exposure, and as many as 14 colour filters, the PowerShot V10 is equipped to help you achieve your ideal results regardless of your skill level or the extent you intend to edit your footage. You can experiment with different camera angles using the tilt-type monitor, which lets you see and adjust high- and low-angle shots comfortably.
Autofocus will prove to be a breeze even for beginners: While Face Tracking AF automatically detects and keeps your face in frame, you can also switch to Specified Frame AF to focus on wherever you tap.
The new Movie Auto ND filter automatically turns the built-in 3-stop ND filter on or off according to ambient brightness. Now you can record perfectly exposed transitions from the dim indoors to the sunny outdoors in one smooth take.
The ergonomic vertical grip provides both right- and left-handers with a comfortable, stable hold, perfect for trying out new transitions or taking long handheld videos such as virtual tours of your travel accommodation.
Designed for ease of shooting, the lens’ wide angle-of-view lets you record yourself with your friends and the background behind you, all from a natural, non-outstretched arm position.
With 14 kinds of aspect ratio markers, you can be ensured that important elements are always perfectly framed even when your video are to be edited for different sharing platforms.
The PowerShot V10 supports real-time delivery methods such as livestreaming, which can be done directly to Facebook or YouTube via the Camera Connect app without the hassle of complicated settings. This can be achieved even when you are out and about: simply tap on your smartphone’s mobile network directly.
Alternatively, you can also use the PowerShot V10 as a webcam via the plug-and-play USB-C connection.
