This is looking very interesting, although it could do with a few tweaks spec wise…
The NEX VG10
It’s an interchangeable lens camcorder for the lower end of the market that has an APS HD sensor in it. It takes the new Sony E series of lenses making this essentially a video camera version of the new Sony NEX-3, Sony NEX-5.
it has full manual controls and records is 24mbps AVCHD. It has a mic in, headphone jack and an EVF as well as an LCD screen.
One thing that stands out, but not in a good way is the 1080i 60i recording in the US, 50i for me in the EU, this is still prevalent in consumer cameras but we need 1080p!! Personally I will want the 50i version so its easier to convert to 25p.
It looks very intriguing and is the start of something very exciting. I get my NEX-5 very shortly and am very excited by it.
The camera comes out around September and will cost around $2000.
