Summary: We love this camera. The result is so good we can't explain. Three things one little heavier second battery come with camera is so so. We had to buy extra battery. Third we have to remember all options.Some time hard to because it has touch screen.Other then we love it.We bought flash light for it...
Excerpt: I have this camera and an EA50 and an a6000 still camera. I am fortunate to have a good number of lenses including 4 by Zeiss. All cameras get the same result so it is which form factor you want to use. I keep reaching for the VG30 because it is great on a tripod and a wonderful hand held tool.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality
Summary: Awesome Camera! Power lens is great for long shot and super close-ups. Remote mic jack comes in handy but is easy to clip/overload if plugged in to a mixer. It is heavy for a hand held but most of my video is shot from a tripod. Bottom line I really like it. And would recommend it highly.
Summary: Not much to say about this other than it's great. If you are just starting with video, then the vg30 is a great place to start. If you are a pro, you may be disappointed at the lack of control over things like saturation, but it does what it needs to do at it's price point.
Excerpt: This camera was purchased to take video of radio controlled model airplanes. There is a lot of motion and lighting changes. It has worked marvelously right out of the box. The video quality is amazing for both the video and stills. I love the telephoto lens.
Pros: Awesome video, Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Telephoto Is Great For My, Zoom range/performance
Summary: This awesome camcorder is basically an NEX-6 shaped for video. The same sensor as the NEX-6 coupled with the right lenses provides excellent Bokeh. It's great for anyone who has invested in the E-mount lens series or who wants to get an adaptor and use Canon, Nikon, Leica, etc glass.
Summary: Great movies also takes excellent stills that are on par with my Canon 70D. Motorized 10x zoom noise is my only gripe, but I generally prefer to zoom manually. In a noisy room such as a family event you won't hear it. 2x digital zoom does not result in a noticeable quality loss.
Excerpt: As an old news guy who always tried to make my footage look more like film, this little gem is a blessing. I can produce an image that has that nice warm filmlike look with shallow depth of field in a size that I can carry anywhere, even on planes.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance
