Sony has been in the Handycam business for 25 years now and has produced something new to help celebrate. The Sony NEX-VG10 is the first HD camcorder to come with an interchangeable lens, they wanted to call it a four-thirds camera, but were unable to do so for various reasons.
The new camcorder shares something in common with NEX-5 and NEX-3 – it uses the same Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor. Live action recording is done at 1080p, and when it wants to take stills, you will get 14.2-megapixels and the use of an 18-200mm lens.
The Sony NEX-VG10 HD camcorder comes with Quad Capsule Spatial Array Stereo Microphone, making this an ideal camcorder for recording special moments – such as weddings. You can even show guest what you have recorded so far with the 3-inch swivel display.
According to Tim Moynihan from PC World, the NEX-VG10 will cost around $2000 when released sometime in September.
