Sony NEXVG10EBDI Handycam Camcorder with Interchangeable Lenses

Mr S. Anthony "Please see my other reviews.", Amazon
27 April 2013
  • 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. An example of this would be if you were filming a person, and then a car travels quickly in the background, the camera cannot auto-focus quick enough and then since the car has gone, finds it...

Stunning Video good Audio

  • 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. I already own two top of the range consumer HD camcorders which I use to film weddings, but I wanted the VG10 to take those cherry pick shots with a cinematic look using depth of field.

A shame....

  • 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. I like to be creative and change the settings during filming; This camera makes this very difficult. The record button is placed wrong when you use the upper handle. Why not put a second record button on top?

First impressions of Sony NEX-VG10

Keen snapper, Amazon
25 July 2011
  • 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.

Pro Cam

  • 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... MOREOVER DUE TO THE WAY DSLRs WORK THEY TEND TO HEAT UP REALLY FAST, MEANING YOU HAVE TO SWITCH IT OFF EVERY 10 MINS.

  • 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. Excellent (top DSLR)14.2 MP photos and full HD video all captured on solid state (SD, SDHC and similar) memory cards.

excellent hybrid camera

Mr. Henry D. C. Williams, Amazon
10 November 2010
  • 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 and it's performed admirably. I've shot about 15 hours of footage now and have yet to see any moire or aliasing problems.

Not Good

rob12770, Amazon
23 October 2010
  • 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 impossible for hand held work.. there is no reason to buy this ill engineered piece of junk.. it is every bit as bad as DSLR.
