Sony had scheduled an announcement via YouTube streaming event for July 7th, but that event has now been postponed over what is rumoured to be “inappropriate” timing for people in China. July 7th marks the anniversary of the “Marco Polo Bridge Incident” in 1937. No official reason, however, has been mentioned by Sony.
The previously scheduled stream has been removed from their YouTube channel and Sony posted the simple 10-second video (above) in its place, noting the postponement. A new date has not yet been announced, although it’s expected to come soon.
The Sony ZV-E10 is expected to be something of a successor to Sony’s popular ZV-1 vlogging camera, except this one is expected to become part of Sony’s alpha mirrorless camera lineup, with an APS-C sized sensor, instead of the 1″ sensor found in the ZV-1 and Sony’s RX100 series. The rumoured specs show an impressive little vlogging camera that looks well placed to compete with the recently announced Nikon Z fc.
