Canon PowerShot V10, very versatile vlogging camera [Review]

As always, in Actualidad Gadget We analyze countless consumer electronics products that allow you not only to consume multimedia content, but also to create it, and this time we do it, as on other occasions, from the hand of Canon.

We take a look at the new Canon PowerShot V10, a vlogging camera with 4K recording and a multitude of accessories. Discover with us if this peculiar product is truly worth it, and above all, what are its main features designed to get the most out of your YouTube channel or your social networks.

Materials and design

Let's start with the first impression, and that is that Canon has always been characterized by creating products with an excellent level of manufacturing and materials, and of course, this device was not going to be the exception, especially taking into account its price range.

It is an extremely compact camera, We have a protected double microphone at the top, on the front there is quick access to the recording, and behind is where we will find both its small screen and an integrated support that will allow us to leave the camera anywhere to obtain a magnificent shot.

  • Did you like it? Well buy it at the best price in Amazon.

It feels comfortable in the hand, its total weight is 211 grams, while its dimensions, as we have said, are 63 x 90 x 34 millimeters. From there, we can only indicate that we are faced with a product that feels well manufactured from the first moment, its "matte" plastic will ensure cleanliness and above all it gives us the possibility of continuing to maintain its physical appearance even over time. . Finally a brand that avoids shiny plastics.

In this sense, we can conclude that the Canon PowerShot V10 is a product designed for your hand, very comfortable, light and above all compact, since you can put it in your pocket without difficulties.

Technical characteristics

Let's now focus on the sensor, type BSI-CMOS with one inch size (13.2 x 8,8 millimeters) offers us a maximum resolution of 5472 x 3648 pixels. To do this, it uses the brand's DIGIC 20,1 megapixels.

The optics, 6,6 millimeters is equivalent to 18 millimeters for shooting and 19 millimeters for recording (Ultra Wide Angle), y offers a maximum aperture f/2.8 along with a 3x optical zoom, which is not bad at all.

  • ISO range from 125 to 6400 for FullHD recording
  • ISO range from 125 to 3200 for 4K recording

With all this, it offers us the possibility of recording with a Maximum video resolution of 3840 x 2160 at 30 frames per second. On the other hand, in terms of photographic performance, we will obtain a minimum shooting speed of 1 second and a maximum of 1/2000 seconds, depending on our setting.

  • Face tracking or specific framing AF mode
  • One Shot AF for stills
  • Minimum focusing distance of 0,05 meters
  • 384-zone exposure metering
  • Auto white balance

We miss that an LED ring had been included around the lens, that would have made it a more versatile product, facing more decisively the low light conditions so typical of vlogging.

Stabilization is a determining point, and for this it has Canon's own Movie Digital IS image stabilizer.

Regarding sound capture, we must highlight that we have two microphones on the top, which will give us the possibility of capturing stereo sound. However, I must say that we do not have the technical information on the microphones.

Connectivity

The camera has two physical interfaces, a USB-C 2.0 port and a miniHDMI port, in case you want to output the recorded image directly to a television or projector. At the bottom we have the classic support for accessories, so we will not lack absolutely anything.

However, as expected, this Canon PowerShot V10 has wireless connectivity through WiFi (802.11.b/g/n) and of course also Bluetooth 4.2 for external microphones, among other accessories.

If we connect the camera to a PC with the USB-C port we have webcam functionality, so you can also join us on our Twitch or YouTube live streams. However, the Canon Camera Connect app, compatible with iOS and Android, It will allow us to make a live broadcast on YouTube and Facebook, without using other devices. Of course, it will use our phone's mobile data, which is logical.

  • GPS with mobile device pairing (App)
  • Smart orientation sensor

Despite all these possibilities at a wireless level, we return to the physical world to indicate that this camera, as we have been able to verify, It is compatible with microSD, microSDHC and microSDXC memory cards, so storage will not be a problem.

User experience

The camera offers infinite possibilities, it allows us, thanks to its two-inch LCD panel, take a look at what we are recording in real time, although I would have appreciated if it had a 360° mobile arm and not a single position.

We have no less than 14 color filters integrated into the system, so adjusting small aspects to our vlog will be a matter of seconds. These filters look great, even when we have decided to take captures.

  • 2″ TFT monitor
  • 5 levels of brightness on screen
  • Touch selector

The automatic tracking of faces allows us to maintain focus on what interests us, and when we are in motion, When we capture with mobile devices, we can encounter focus problems, which is why companies like Apple have integrated a "Cinema" mode in their capture applications. Well, all this is easily compensated for with the face tracking integrated into this Canon PowerShot V10.

In addition, we have other functionalities interesting:

  • Automatic neutral density filter
  • Remote shooting
  • Skin softening

Regarding autonomy, We will enjoy about 400 photographic shots and about an hour of video. To charge, its USB-C port will require approximately an hour and a half.

Editor's opinion

We are faced with an extremely peculiar product, a camera designed for "professionals" or those who have a great love for vlogging. Without a doubt, the performance is spectacular, it does not rival (in terms of quality) the most versatile professional cameras, but it combines many functionalities in a single product that will make your life easier.

We have analyzed the version with accessories, and its cost will be around 399,90 euros depending on the point of sale.
