Sony Announces NEX-VG10

Sony announced on their blog the new NEX-VG10 digital camcorder. This is the video camera they teased everyone with back in May. It uses the same sensor as the NEX-5 and NEX-3 and will use the same e-mount lenses. It will also support the mount adaptor that will let you use the catalog of A-mount lenses for Sony’s Alpha DSLRs.

The sensor is almost 20 times large than the standard camcorder sensor, and should yield some incredible low-light video. It captures 1920 x 1080 video at up to 24Mbps and will come standard with an 18-200mm lens.

The supported memory card format is Memory Stick PRO Duo and SD (including SDHX and SDXC). They say that it will record up to four hours of HD footage on a 32 GB card. It’s a shame they did not go Compact Flash with this setup.

It is set to come out in September for $2,000. That is a lot for a camcorder, but this camera will do some pretty phenomenal things.

Here is the video:

    oh man..I’ll definitely get this! I’m looking for something as portable as that with a reasonable price range.
