Content creators, take note: Canon‘s latest vlog-ready compact camera has finally arrived in the Philippines.
Launched globally earlier this year, the Canon PowerShot V10 is a pocket-sized camera aimed squarely at YouTubers and vloggers who are looking for a portable, entry-level shooter for recording videos.
Granted, the PowerShot V10 is still a dedicated camera, so it’s fully capable of taking pictures, but it’s obviously designed with video in mind. Specifically, Canon is hoping that on-the-go content creators give the camera a look if they’re looking to upgrade from shooting with a smartphone. Because, let’s face it: As good as today’s smartphones are for shooting content, they still lag behind dedicated cameras in terms of versatility as well as picture and video quality.
Take it from us — even the most powerful camera phones available today can’t beat a compact camera with a decent lens and sensor. And this is where Canon comes in.
In the Philippines, the Canon PowerShot V10 is priced at P29,998 (around $539). Not bad considering how much camera-centric Android phones like the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and the Apple iPhone 14 series cost these days. For a limited time, customers who preorder the camera will receive a freeDVL Kairos camera bag from Straightforward and a 64GB microSD card from Sandisk Extreme.

The Canon PowerShot V10 boasts an ergonomic form factor that makes shooting one-handed selfies easy and includes a built-in fold-out kickstand, so you don’t need to bring a tripod or monopod with you to shoot a vlog. It’s also equipped with a 2.0-inch LCD flip screen for taking selfies and vlog-style videos.
The camera has a fixed lens with f/2.8 aperture and an equivalent 19mm focal length. It’s not a macro lens, but can focus as close as 0.05 meters. Meanwhile, the 20.9-megapixel 1.0-inch back-side illuminated CMOS sensor can record up to 4K footage at 25 or 30 fps and 1080p video at up to 60 fps.
The Canon PowerShot V10 packs large-diameter omnidirectional stereo microphones that can record audio from the front and rear of the device. There’s also a third microphone for noise reduction. You’ll find a 3.5mm headphone jack at the bottom as well.
Like other compact cameras with modern features, device includes both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity for fast and convenient sharing and uploading to the internet. You can even connect the camera to your Wi-Fi network and stream directly on YouTube or Facebook via Canon’s Camera Connect app. The intuitive, smartphone-like controls make operating the unit straightforward.
