Sony NEX-VG10


$2,000.00 Released September, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Shot footage looks great in adequate light, sharp and professional. Most functions can be controlled manually if you want to. Included lens zooms smoothly with great clarity throughout.

The Cons:Busy repeated textures show moire patterns. Need to leave the monitor door open all the time to access the controls. No advanced audio support - no XLR or manual level control (automatic only).

The Sony NEX-VG10 is a top-of-the-line 1080p HD camcorder compatible with E-mount and A-mount lenses. Its Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor is approximately 19.5 times larger than conventional camcorder sensors while its Quad Capsule Spatial Array stereo microphone promises audio to match its 1080p video.

Additionally, the NEX-VG10 is capable of taking 14.2 megapixel still images.

The NEX-VG10's sold-separately E-mount and A-mount lenses allow for quick augmentation of any shot while its large Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor allows you to capture video with improved shallow depth of field and background defocusing effects. Its Quad Capsule Spatial Array stereo microphone allows the NEX-VG10 to capture audio clearly and at very high qualities due to four precision placed microphone capsules which provide excellent front-side directivity and stereo separation. Meanwhile, the NEX-VG10's still-image capture function allows it to act as a 14.2 megapixel camera at the push of a button for fast and easy picture taking while filming.
