Summary: I bought this camcorder from Amazon Warehouse Most of the negative reviews are from people who expect too much from this camera, it is not meant to be a DSLR or a professional camcorder at the moment it is quite unique.
Summary: If you have tried DSLR and like most others found the terrible moire and aliasing issues too much to bear, DO NOT get this sony NEX VG10.. if anything it is WORSE !!! this camera also has really bad ballance, the lens is soooo much heavier than the camera, that it all tips forward, making it...
Summary: This is a truly excellent piece of kit that offers the form factor (and record times) of a camcorder and the shallow depth of field of a DSLR. I bought it instead of the Canon D60 to use for short film work, music videos, cherry shots at events and interviews in addition to my current ENG cameras...
Summary: First I admit I like Sony products and tend to buy Sony unless there is clearly a better alternative. Occasionally this leads to regrets but not in this case. I have been waiting for some years for a single camera that takes both photos and video without compromise to either, and this is finally it.
Summary: THIS IS BY FAR BETTER THAN THE DSLRs (DEPENDING ON HOW YOU VIEW IT) THE CURRENT DSLRs IN THE MARKET HAVE THEIR DISADVANTAGES, WHICH MAKES THE SONY VERY COMPETITIVE. THE SONY DOES NOT HEAT UP ( i.e LONG LIFE BATTERY). MOST DSLRs DONT LAST LONG WHEN IT COMES TO SHOOTING MUSIC VIDEOS/ MOVIES...
Summary: You know, you buy something an expect certain things as standard. Particularly if you pay close on £1,000. Well, I expected a safety strap to go around my hand. Not included. I expected a chord or something for the lens cap. Not included. I guess that even a basic 'bag' would have been nice. But no.
Summary: Recently we bought this camera to film events at my workplace. I'm really used to work with videocameras and I have to say that this camera is very difficult to manipulate. It seems you need three hands to work with this camera.
Summary: She's a powerhouse!!! To give you a concept of how easy this camera is to use. My production company received the VG10 on the morning of shooting and learned how to use it in about 10 min. Pretty much everything is awesome.
Summary: Very pleased with the VG10e so far. Ive been waiting for years to be able to experiment with lenses at an affordable price and now I can. Good quality build and superb lens supplied. LCD display crystal clear and excellent quad-phonic microphone.

Summary: For the large asking price I expected this camera to offer better performance in the features that it offered. The auto-focus is poor; you can be focussed on a subject and then something moves in the distance, then the camera tries to focus on that object and can severely struggle.
