Let’s compare the Sony ZV-E10 camera with Canon 200D Mark II SL3. As we all know Canon SL3 or 200D Mark III is one of the most popular Canon vlogger-friendly cameras, but with a slightly high price is Sony ZV-E10 is better or not? let’s find out in the specification comparison review.

High ISO Test
At ISO 3200 Visible loss of details starts from Canon Sensor. At the same time, Sony was able to somehow maintain the details even at 3200 ISO, but even in that image, we can see some visible color fringing started on the edges of the circle lines.
AT 25600 ISO both images are completely unable but, we can clearly see here Canon 200D II or SL3 sensor not able to maintain details as of the SOny ZV-E10 camera.
So, to make the test more clear to our users we have selected RAW format at ISO 25600. You can clearly see the level of color noise is higher on Canon sensor and slightly well maintained on Sony Sensor.
Better Metering and Faster Shooting Speed in Sony
Metering range in low-light is better in Canon compared to the Sony ZV-E10 Camera, as well as you can see we are getting 11FPS of continuous shooting speed with AI/AF tracking. In Canon, the continuous shooting speed is limited to 4.5 FPS.

In Video Mode – Sony ZV-E10 is better
Video Auto Focus – Video Autuofus in Canon 200D Mark II / Sl3 is very good at Full HD mode, in 4k video mode the DPAF support drops and we get CDAF (contrast) based AF support. In Sony, we don’t have to face such an issue, the AF is available all the time despite the shooting mode you have selected either Full HD or 4k.
4k Crop in Canon – In Canon 200D Mark II / SL3 Camera we have to face 1.6x furthermore crop in 4K video mode and as I have also mentioned above the DPAF support also drops. It, clearly means that 4K video mode was built for the specification sheet and not for users.
Sony Rolling shutter problem in Video: While shooting 4K video with a faster shutter speed you might see some jello effect while moving your camera since the sensor is 5 years old and coming out from the A6100/ A6400 camera. So, you have to buy a variable ND filter if you want to shoot Broll in Sunlight.
Sony Dedicated Video mode for Vloggers: Sony introduced several vlogger-friendly shooting modes in their Sony ZV1 camera. The same was also implemented on the Sony ZV-E10 camera. Some of the most usable modes include product showcase mode, Bokeh mode and Face Exposure Priority mode.
Both 3.5mm microphone and headphone ports are also featured for more advanced audio recording, and the Multi Interface Shoe also benefits audio recording capabilities.
Full HD recording at 120p, no 120p mode in Canon.
The directional 3-capsule microphone that is specifically designed for forward-directional audio recording. Also, a dedicated wind screen for the built-in mic is included to help achieve cleaner audio when working outdoors.
