Sony announced the NEX-VG30H Handycam interchangeable lens camcorder, which builds on the success of the NEX-VG20H model, sharing the same APS-C image sensor while adding several enhancements. With a resolution of 16.1 effective megapixels, the new camcorder’s Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor assures outstanding image quality with the family of interchangeable E-mount lenses. It can capture smooth, cinematic Full HD video footage at 60p, or 24p (progressive) frame rates and high-resolution still photos, supported by a wide range of artistic Picture Effect modes. It also features the same XGA OLED Tru-Finder EVF, comprehensive manual controls and the same seesaw style zoom lever as the NEX-VG900 model.
The NEX-VG30H camcorder comes supplied as a kit with the new SELP-18200 E PZ 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 Power Zoom lens that provides a versatile range from wide angle to telephoto. Offering smooth, quiet Auto Focus operation and Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, the lens also features an additional switch on the barrel for further controlling zoom speeds.
The new camcorder is compatible with Sony’s Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX series as well as Sony’s full line of SD memory cards. Available in capacities up to 32 GB, both media enable necessary transfer speeds for stable and optimal performance of Sony hardware features such as full HD movie shooting.
