Sony NEX-VG30H review

 

Let's get this out of the way: Sony's Handycam NEX-VG30H camcorder is pricey and big. At $2,700, you could buy almost 10 budget compact camcorders that shoot high-def. But comparing the VG30 to a regular consumer camcorder is like pitting a BMW...

Lens interchangeability with E-mount and Alpha- mount lenses ; Depth-of-field control for cinematic storytelling ; Large sensor delivers great video and photo quality ; Superb surround audio capture

Can get very expensive if you add additional lenses ; Too cumbersome for one-handed use ; Some audio focusing noise with certain Alpha lenses

As a consumer camcorder, the Sony NEX-VG30H is pricey for most, but it gives you the benefits of interchangeable lenses and a large sensor that let you create cinema-quality video.
