Sony NEX-VG10 review

[Review] Sony NEX-VG10, Video with style and performance

 

We had been using a “professional” broadcast P2 camera for a very long period of time at AkihabaraNews, but with the Canon 5D MKII, we have ditched these bulky and expensive cameras and now get along with cheaper and more versatile DLS

Sony Handycam NEX-VG10 (with 18-200mm Lens) review: Sony Handycam NEX-VG10 (with 18-200mm Lens)

 

Sony Handycam NEX-VG10 (with 18-200mm Lens)

The ; brings interchangeable-lens flexibility to camcorders at a prosumer price.

Though it's priced like a high-end camcorder, with the exception of the lenses the VG10's feature set and video quality don't match that of much cheaper models.

A solid first effort in a nascent category, the Sony Handycam NEX-VG10 nevertheless needs some conceptual refinement.

Using Sony's recently launched E-mount lens range for its NEX still cameras, the NEX-VG10 promises to be the first consumer camcorder on the market to support lens swapping.

Sony NEX-VG10 HD AVCHD Camcorder

 

I spent decades in Hollywood designing major studios and networks for a living, but I'm not a video editor. I have no real idea what anyone would do with the AVCHD files this camera makes. Personally, I have no time to import files to a computer; I...

Sony NEX-VG10 Camcorder with Interchangeable Lens Reviewed

 

If you're looking for near-prosumer performance on a sub-prosumer budget then you'll want to have a serious look at the Sony NEX-VG10.

Interchangeable lenses, Large sensor - very shallow depth of field, User friendly, intuitive controls

Should have a power zoom to minimize wrist rotation, Handheld use picks up substantial handling noise, May be a bit pricey for the strictly consumer market
