Is it just me or are we talking “plain looking” for £459 this Vlogging camera looks rather basic in fact I would go as far as to say it looks “cheap”. For sound you have a pair of “very good” stereo mics built in but as usual no headphone jack. The saving grace for this wee camera is does have an onboard speaker so you can at least check your sound is being recorded. It does have an audio input so you can attach your radio mic into it.

UPDATE : Although it does not win on looks the V10 certainly pulls in a fairly good picture as Gordon Laing’s video will testify.

I will leave you with the excellent interview from Johnnie Behiri from Cine-D who picks up on the lack of headphone jack during the interview. Make sure you watch the review by Gordon Laing as it gives a better account of the Canon V10 and is a lot better than I gave it credit for.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
