After the announcement of the Sony ZV-E10 camera, I am getting lots of questions about the image quality of the ZV-E10. People are confused and some youtube gurus are recommending that Sony A6400 camera image quality is 1 or 2 stop better than ZV-E10. So, thankfully, dpreview team updated their High ISO test database and finally added the name of the Sony ZV-E10 camera to the list.
Let’s take a look at the test samples of the Sony ZV-E10 camera image file
Sony ZV-E10 @ ISO 25600
We have selected all the four popular Sony APS-C Mirrorless cameras in the test. As you can see, The Sony A6000 camera showing up a significant amount of noise in the image sample file compared to the other three cameras in the list we have.
Sony ZV-E10 @ ISO 51200
We have selected the 51200 ISO range for the other three-camera, as you know that the ISO range of the Sony A6000 camera is limited to 25600. All the other three cameras showing almost identical performance compared to each other. The amount of color noise and details we are having looks similar in all the three samples we have from Sony A6100 / Sony ZV-E10, Sony A6400, and Sony A6600.
Sony A6400 and A6600 @ 102400
We have upscaled the ISO values again, as you all know that the Sony ZV-E10 camera remains limited to 51200, but with Sony A6400 and Sony A6600 camera, we are able to boost up the ISO range up to 102400. But, as you will notice the Image quality of both the camera becomes highly unusable at 102400, and practically it make no sense for the camera maker to unlock the ISO 102400 when we have such a huge amount of color noise as well as loss of details. It also clearly indicated to us that the sensor of all four cameras Sony A6100, Sony ZV-E10, Sony A6400, and Sony A6600 are almost the same as each other.
