Great Camera

Rex Schroeder, Amazon

  • Summary: Good Deal buying used, and a good company I bought from. Would buy from them again. Can not beat the quality of the video with this Sony cam. Would recommend this model to anyone starting out in the pro level of video. This shoots video equal to $10,000 cameras. Very easy to use. I use this for portable shoots, and when wanting a easy take along camera, it works well with the full line this belongs too. I have the EA50UH and the FS100.

Good transition from DLSR

  • Excerpt: Great camera for the price range we were looking for; the interchangeable lenses make it an easy transition from DSLR to Camcorder. The interchangeable lenses make this great for interviews and short videos.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: No XLR, Poor Sound

Great Cam, I love the additions

  • Summary: I had the VG10 and it was very limited in its range and ability to fine tune your shoot. I find this camera has really hit a sweet spot on affordability and manual operation choices when in the field. I recommend this camera to anyone looking for a cropped sensor interchangeable lens camera, with camcorder form factor and wont murder your wallet!

Good camera

David Lundberg-kenrick, Amazon

  • Summary: Really great camera, after filming with DSLRs, it's so nice not to have to worry about overheating or short battery life. Two weird things- the camera drops about a second of audio when it hits the 2 gig file size limit, so if you film events, you'll need to record audio separately. Also, it has a different interface from the NEX still cameras, and lacks the ability to adjust sharpness, saturation, and contrast. Still, the pros out way the cons.

  • Summary: It works great! Image quality is very good. The only bummer is that is does not have hi-speed recording for slow motion. Other than that it is an awesome little camera with a big punch.

Sony NEX-VG30 Impressions

Amazon Customer, Amazon
27 April 2013
  • Summary: OK, I'll go first... I've been looking for a replacement for my hdr-fx1000 that does 1080p60 for sports video (hdr-fx1000 is 1080i60). The nex-vg30 seems to have a lot going for it so I ordered one. Here are my limited (so far), impressions of the product after messing around a few hours at home. The nex-vg30 feels wonderful to hold. It's solid and well balanced in shooting position. It's a little front heavy when you hold it with one hand when not shooting.

Great picture, but it's not a perfect camera

Cris Fair, Amazon

  • Summary: I make cooking and travel videos, and have been looking at replacing my Sony AX2000 for a camera with a more vivid picture that can reproduce bright colors and has a shallow depth of field. So... I went out and got a Sony NEX VG30h. Here is my review. PRO's - Beautiful, bright, sharp, vivid (did I mention beautiful?) picture.

Great camcorder

FunnyTrueStories, B&H Photo
8 April 2013
  • Excerpt: I use this camera mostly for interviews. I love the shallow depth of field (like a DSLR) AND the ability to shoot for long periods of time without worrying about over-heating. It also takes great photos. It's a bit awkward to use hand-held, but I'm sure I can get used to it. I've only had the camera about 2 weeks.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality
  • Cons: No External Mic Input
