Summary: The Sony NEX-VG10 was the perfect choice for my needs. I wanted to be able to shoot high quality videos, using a variety of lenses with the convenience of a handycam. I don't want to fuss with all the specialized controls like the NEX-FS100 has, just let me shoot.
Summary: Others have mentioned the high points of the VG10 but to be honest they are far outweighed by the negatives...terrible motion artifacts with any type of movement, unacceptable noise levels in low light, normally lit scenes are barely acceptable, no RAW output for stills in spite of providing a...
Summary: I've tested it with Canon vixia m41 in a low-light environment. Sony's video is noisy compare to Canon, even with low gain. The picture is so unfocused, no matter what you do. It cost almost $1500, but shut worse than camcorder for $400, and it does not even have a power zoom.
It's really difficult to work with and I can't import files to my computer

Summary: I got this camera because I wanted narrow depth of field which I love in photography... but I am not a professional video-person, i only had simple consumer camcorders before, and this is not a consumer level camcorder!

Summary: I have been looking forward to ordering the NEXVG10 for quite a few months, upgrading from a five year old Sony HD camera. To get to the point -- the disappointment with the camera overwhelmed the cool features. The camera does not seem suitable for typical consumer use, such as action video.
Summary: I truly love the Sony NEX-VG10 and would recommend it to folks who love great picture quality. After much research I purchased this camera and after doing several video projects, I can say that it has always performed exceptionally.
Summary: I own a nikon d3100, has auto focus but no external mic connection........has 14.2 mega pixals, and does great with vids and pics; even in low light; has a 1600 range for iso, and hd and shoots in 24, 30 and higher pixels........does anyone know how to compare my camera to this sony?
