Sony NEX-VG10 interchangeable lens HD camcorder throws off concept shackles

Sony NEX-VG10 interchangeable lens HD camcorder throws off concept shackles

Having teased us with a concept of their ideas for a camcorder version of their interchangeable-lens NEX cameras, Sony has now unveiled the production version of that dream.  The Sony NEX-VG10 Interchangeable Lens HD Camcorder is, the company reckons, the first consumer model to support switchable optics of this sort, sharing the same E-mount lens interface together with support for regular A-mount lenses with a suitable adapter.  Thanks to the comapny's Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor, the NEX-VG10 can shoot Full HD video at 24Mbps or 14.2-megapixel stills.

Sony NEX-7 with 1080p coming later in 2010

Sony NEX-7 with 1080p coming later in 2010

Sony's NEX-3 and NEX-5 are all well and good, but with high definition recording topping out at 1080/60i there's a distinct lack of 1080p HD goodness in the range.  According to EOSHD's sources - previously accurate in their NEX predictions - that'll be taken care of with the Sony NEX-7 later in the year.  That camera will use an APS-C chip, though a different one to what's found in the NEX-3/5, capable of 1080p@60, 1080p@24 and 720p@120/60 for super slow-motion.

Sony NEX-5 review round-up

Sony NEX-5 review round-up

Sony's two new NEX-5 and NEX-3 digital cameras may only have officially made their debut today, but the first reviews and previews are already in.  Overall, the judgement seems positive: the two interchangeable-lens cameras are compact, certainly smaller than a regular DSLR, and image quality seems to have surprised many with just how impressive it is.  "For a small camera to output ISO 3,200 images that look amazing when printed at 13x19 inches: that's worth noticing" say Imaging Resource, for instance.

It's not just Sony's α-series NEX-5 and NEX-3 digital cameras that the company envisages having interchangeable lenses; they've also revealed a concept AVCHD HD camcorder which would use the same E Mount lenses (or the A Mount adapter for regular DSLR lenses from the company's range).  According to the Sony blog, the so-far unnamed camcorder will arrive in the fall 2010; however AV Watch caught some live shots of what's presumably a non-functional mock-up over in Japan.
