Sony Handycam NEX-VG900 First Impressions Review

Introduction

Sony breaks serious new ground with the NEX-VG900—the world's first camcorder with a Full Frame image sensor. Utilizing an E-mount interchangeable lens system, and shipping with a free A-mount lens adapter, the VG900 is the new flagship camcorder in Sony's line of interchangeable lens Handycams. The fact that the camcorder fails to deliver 4K video recording, and questions surrounding the actual benefit of using a 24-megapixel Full Frame sensor to record a 1920 x 1080 video image are likely to create doubts about the VG900, but Sony's ability to incorporate a Full Frame sensor on a $3299 camcorder is still a noteworthy achievement.

The NEX-VG900 will be available in November 2012 with an MSRP of $3299 (body only). The camcorder comes with a free A-mount lens adapter (LA-EA3) and was announced in conjunction with Sony's new 18-200mm power zoom lens and the NEX-VG30 interchangeable lens camcorder.
