At a mere 211g, almost half the weight of the compact PowerShot G7 X Mark III, the PowerShot V10 is Canon's smallest vlogging camera, and its diminutive size means you can take it anywhere for spontaneous, on-the-fly vlogging.
Despite its small size, the PowerShot V10 features dual large-diameter built-in microphones that can capture better quality audio than you're probably getting from your smartphone. This is because the mics in smartphones are optimised for phone calls, when the device is pressed against your face. The microphones in the PowerShot V10, however, are designed to capture stereo audio at typical vlogging distances, tuned to your voice while also capturing the atmosphere of your surroundings, whether it's a market or a party. If you're recording in windy conditions, pop on the bundled wind shield to reduce unwanted wind noise.
Should you want even more control over audio, the PowerShot V10 also has a 3.5mm mic port on the side for plugging in an external microphone. An optional accessory mount, available separately, gives you maximum flexibility in where you attach an external mic around the camera.
Also unique to the PowerShot V10 is a built-in stand that allows you to set up the camera to film from different tilt angles ranging from -30° to -10° for high-angle shooting and 10° to 30 ° for low-angle shooting. The stand folds away for more compact storage and handheld use. For even more versatility, the PowerShot V10 has a standard tripod mount, so you have the option of attaching it to any tripod of your choice, including the compact Canon Tripod Grip HG-100TBR.
