Sony's NEX-VG10: the little video camera with a BIG sensor
UPDATE: Sunday, 12 September 2010
The design of cameras that shoot HD video will not stay trapped in a traditional stills camera body for much longer.
I now have my hands on the only demo model of the new NEX-VG10 and I've been shooting tests this weekend. Aimed squarely at the video enthusiast, the big WOW factor for me so far has been ISO performance at 21+Db Gain and not trailing too far behind, the range of high quality interchangeable lenses, top mic clarity and best of all, it's comfy usable form factor.
With a CMOS sensor that's roughly 19.5 times larger than those used in conventional camcorders, will this model put the cat among the pigeons for video cameras at this level? I'll be posting my impressions soon.
