Report Photokina 2010 - The new Sony NEX VG10 camcorder is the world's first consumer camcorder with interchangeable lenses and the first Handycam camcorder to feature an extra-large Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor. Sony's NEX-VG10 Interchangeable lens HD Handycam camcorder is equipped with the same Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor used in the "Sony NEX-5" and "NEX-3" digital cameras and compatible with the high grade "E-mount" series of smaller, lighter lenses optimized for video shooting with silent operation and AF. The Sony NEX camcorder is also compatible with a wealth of "A-mount" interchangeable lenses used by Sony's existing alpha DSLR camera line-up via a mount adapter (sold separately), including award winning Sony G Lenses and Carl Zeiss branded lenses.

Coupled with Sony's powerful BIONZ processor, the camcorder's Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor realizes high resolution video and 14 megapixel still images. Approximately 19.5 times bigger than the standard sensor found in conventional camcorders, the APS HD CMOS sensor enables an extremely shallow depth of field. This allows videographers to achieve cinematic results with stunning background defocus (bokeh). Users can also enjoy DSLR-quality photo capture with features like Auto HDR, Handheld Twilight, and Anti Motion Blur, as well as catch fast action sequences with a continuous burst rate of up to seven fps.

Satisfying the needs of serious videographers, sound quality matches the stellar imaging performance of the Sony NEX- camcorder. Its Quad Capsule Spatial Array Stereo Microphone uses advanced processing algorithms to combine signals from four individual microphone capsules.The result is exceptionally clear stereo audio with high directional response, allowing videographers to capture more sound from their subject and less background noise. The Sony NEX camcorder also features dedicated inputs for optional external microphones and headphones to monitor sound levels.

SONY NEX camcorder features
The camcorder's TruBlack technology brings remarkably higher contrast and brightness to its 3.0" extra Fine LCD swivel display, delivering more natural, realistic colors and easier viewing in bright conditions. The LCD is supplemented by a high-resolution adjustable electronic viewfinder that helps framing, monitoring and capturing clear images. Compact and easy to handle, the Sony NEX camcorder gives videographers the flexibility of a removable lens with the ergonomics and operability of a Handycam camcorder. An intuitive jog dial and hotkeys make it easy to navigate menus and adjust shooting parameters, including full manual control of Iris, Shutter Speed, Gain and White Balance for professional results.

SONY NEX camcorder accessories
Dual accessory shoes (Alpha Hot Shoe / Universal Cold Shoe) allow for many still photography and video accessories, such as the Sony ECM-CG50 shotgun microphone and external flash lighting. There's also a choice of rechargeable battery options, including the Sony NP-FV100 that provides up to 315 minutes of continuous HD shooting (may vary), and a specially designed soft carrying case. Included with purchase as a download voucher ($99 value), Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 10 video editing software includes powerful tools for video compositing, color correction and sound mixing to produce cinema-quality HD movies with ease.
