Sony NEX-VG10 – Revolution in independent filmmaking

by Milos Itic on March 25, 2011

From Vimeo group dedicated on this great camera:

“Sony’s new NEX-VG10 camcorder will bring another revolution in independent filmmaking, offering an incredibly low price point for its feature set. We’ve wanted a shalllow depth-of-field, interchangeable lens and larger sensor for low-budget filmmaking. And we’ve waited too long for RED to get its Scarlet to market (after incessant delays and price increases), so this will have to do. At this User Group, we can exchange tips and information at its Forums, share supporting Files, and most importantly, post Videos from this exciting new camcorder.

The Sony NEX-VG10 Interchangeable Lens Handycam is the first-ever large sensor video camera, merging the rich colors, enhanced light sensitivity, and shallow depth-of-field of video DSLRs with the shape, size, and functionality of a camcorder. That means no more rigging out your video-enabled DSLR with accessories that cost twice as much as the camera–and no more funneling your video through the tiny sensors and fixed lenses of camcorders past. Along with access to Sony’s growing line of E-mount and already established A-mount lenses (using an optional adapter), the NEX-VG10 provides an APS HD CMOS sensor that measures over 19 times the size of a conventional camcorder’s! This translates into a significant upgrade in pixel size and image quality, allowing you to record truly cinematic-looking video that gives you creative control over what’s in focus and what’s not. Whether shooting 1920 x 1080 video or 14.2MP stills, creative control is the order of the day–from manually adjusting iris, shutter speed, white balance and gain to finding the perfect lens to capture the world as you see it.
