The new Sony Handycam NEX-VG20E camcorder offers comprehensive manual controls, allowing videographers to explore the artistic potential of the growing range of E-Mount lenses. With refined ergonomics, improved imaging quality and upgraded sound, it provides several enhancements over the acclaimed Sony NEX-VG10E – the world’s first consumer HD camcorder with interchangeable lenses.
With a resolution of 16.1 effective megapixels, the Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor assures outstanding video image quality, with extremely low noise in low light. Full HD video shooting in AVCHD format is now complemented by a choice of 50p and 25p (progressive) frame rate options. Dialogue and other sounds are captured by the precision Quad Capsule Spatial Array Microphone that now supports stereo and 5.1 channel surround.
Button layout has also been revised with ‘hard’ function keys, direct access to each shooting mode (Iris, Shutter speed, Program AE), a second REC button for low-angle shots and expanded focus button – all sited for intuitive operation without taking your eye from the electronic viewfinder.
The Sony Handycam NEX-VG20E Full HD E-mount system camcorder is available in Asia Pacific, including Singapore, from mid October 2011.
