    Handycam NEX-VG900

    Video makers can embrace the limitless expressive power of full-frame imaging with the new Handycam® NEX-VG900 E-mount interchangeable lens Full HD camcorder from Sony.

    Offering supreme imaging quality and generous creative options, it’s the first Handycam® with a 35mm full frame sensor to fully exploit the artistic potential of interchangeable lenses by Sony and Carl Zeiss.

    With a resolution of 24.3 effective megapixels, the Sony-developed full frame Exmor CMOS sensor inside the NEX-VG900 is around 40 times larger than the equivalent in ordinary consumer camcorders. It’s also more than twice the size of the APS-C sized sensor found in other interchangeable lens Handycam® models.

    • 24.3 effective megapixel Exmor full-frame CMOS sensor
    • Compatible with full-frame A-mount lenses via supplied adaptor (also compatible with growing range of E-mount lenses)
    • Full HD 60p/24p(NTSC) 50p/25p/24p(PAL) progressive movie recording
    • Extensive manual controls and ‘seesaw’ zoom lever
    • Quad Capsule Spatial Array Microphone for high-quality stereo and 5.1ch sound
    • High contrast XGA OLED Tru-Finder
    • 7.5 cm (3.0”) XtraFine touch panel LCD

    As well as permitting beautiful ‘bokeh’ (defocus) effects with the growing range of lenses, its high sensitivity assures extremely clear, low-noise images. The large sensor size assures effortless reproduction of the finest tonal gradations, helping the most demanding cinematographer fully realise their creative vision.

    The sensor also allows the NEX-VG900 to shoot full-frame 24.0 effective megapixel still photos, with all the quality you’d expect from a pro-class DSLR camera. Still images can be shot in RAW format for total post-processing freedom.

    Beautiful, film-like results can be achieved by shooting video in 25p/24p progressive mode, with Cinema Tone Gamma™ and Cinema Tone Colour™ offering precise control over cinematic colour grading effects. AVCHD version 2.0 standard 50p/60p recording is additionally supported, maximising the range of creative options for movie-makers to explore. Even greater flexibility is provided by a choice of new Picture Effect modes, enabling easy creation of artistic ‘in-camera’ treatments whether you’re shooting HD video or stills.

    Video shooting is further enhanced by a ‘seesaw’ lever that allows smooth, polished zoom control. The lever adjusts optical zoom when using compatible E-mount lenses that feature built-in zoom drive. The lever controls electronic zoom when using the camcorder with fixed focal lenses for impressive creative results.

    As an extra refinement, the NEX-VG900 switches automatically from full-frame operation to APS-C mode when an E-mount or A-mount DT lens is attached. This allows users to get the most out of their collection of DT lenses that are optimised for cameras with a smaller APS-C image sensor.

    The camcorder also comes supplied with the LA-EA3 adaptor that lets photographers use full-frame A-mount DSLR lenses at their designated focal length.

    There’s a generous palette of control options and manual settings to satisfy the demanding video enthusiast. Aperture priority, shutter speed priority or manual exposure, are all selectable and white balance can be adjusted manually to suit the demands of any scene. Iris, shutter speed, and gain adjustments can be easily made via logically-positioned direct access keys. Accurate manual focusing is assisted by the camcorder’s pro-style display peaking function, complemented by a one-touch focus magnification button on the top of the grip.

    Serious videographers will welcome the detail-packed XGA OLED Tru-Finder that offers high-contrast image monitoring with superbly natural colour rendition. Complementing the Tru-Finder, there’s an adjustable XtraFine touch-panel LCD monitor, with Sony’s unique technology for high contrast images with rich, deep blacks.

    High-quality audio is a crucial part of the HD video experience with the NEX-VG900. A unique Quad Capsule Spatial Array Microphone features four omnidirectional capsules that can be switched for stereo or 5.1ch surround recording. Recording levels are adjustable, with accurate visual confirmation provided by an audio level meter on the LCD display. There’s also a headphone jack for direct monitoring of sounds being recorded.

    To further enhance the accuracy of audio input during recording, the new Multi Interface Shoe provides compatibility with the optional XLR-K1M adaptor kit that includes a high-quality mono shotgun mic (ECM-XM1) and pro-standard XLR connections. This enabled user to have more meticulous shooting with a detailed audio control through this accessory.

    The Handycam® NEX-VG900 camcorder from Sony is available in Asia Pacific from mid November 2012.
