Sony E-mount interchangeable lens spec goes public in April

Sony E-mount interchangeable lens spec goes public in April

Sony opted not to use the Micro Four Thirds standard for its NEX interchangeable lens cameras, instead developing its own E-mount system, and now it plans to open that technology up for third-party lens manufacturers. As well as allowing for third-party E-mount lenses for use with the NEX-3, NEX-5 and NEX-VG10 cameras, it will also allow for mount adapters for other manufacturers' lenses to be attached to Sony's models.

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.

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.
