Sony announces NEXVG30 and fullframe NEXVG900 Handycams, we go handson

A full-frame camcorder for roughly 3 grand? Meet the Sony NEX-VG900 Handycam — the company’s first 35mm HD video camera. Taking cues from its Alpha A99, which was just announced today, Sony brought that camera’s 24.3-megapixel full-frame sensor to a camcorder form factor, delivering shallow depth-of-field and much improved low-light sensitivity in a more practical package. The VG900 is compatible with E-mount lenses, and it’s a fine stills shooter (like the A99, it’s capable of 14-bit RAW captures), but it’s best suited for high-end video production, where it offers 1080p recording at 24 or 60 frames-per-second through a sensor that features 45 times the area of a conventional camcorder. This model even adds some of Sony’s picture effects from the stills line, such as soft focus and miniature mode, while certain filters, like partial color and high-contrast monochrome can even be added to video
