Great performance, easy to use

Kimba, B&H Photo
9 April 2014
  • Excerpt: This is my first foray away from the all-in-one camcorders and I would rank it a great success! The camera is among the least expensive of the 'professional' camcorders, but definitely delivers professional performance. The large sensor size gives excellent quality in low-light conditions. The color reproduction is great. I found this to be very easy to use. I would strongly recommend it for the ametuer videographer looking to bring your videos to the next level.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality

Beautiful image. A great Camera.

Paulo Leite, Amazon

  • Summary: I just fell in love with this camera. It has this beautiful film-like picture - it fully matched my expectation. I was looking for a camera that was not so expensive like the professional ones costing more than $10.000, so I found this one after some research. Its full frame 24.3MP sensor is capable of giving you an image that feels like photography, with the possibility of the shallow depth of field that I love.

Very good image quality in daylight.

Jason Rosenfeld "Scenic Labs Guy", Amazon

  • Summary: I enjoyed shooting but this camera. My one minor quibble is that there is some moire distortion on very fine diagonal lines, a result of the antialiasing built in to the camera. This was really only noticeable on stationary shots, and mostly by me during editing. I was able to remove any annoyances in postproduction.

Loving it!

Elvis, B&H Photo
21 October 2013
  • Excerpt: I love this camera! It's perfect for someone like me who's looking for a great dslr quality video but requires the longevity recording time. The full-frame feature, plus the million lens you can interchange, is amazing when trying really experimenting with your movies image and feel. My only problem with this camera is that i wish the touchscreen was a little more resistant to force.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance

Expensive, but great for Prosumers

Ataraxic, B&H Photo
12 September 2013
  • Excerpt: I am an amateur documentarian, and thus far the NEX VG900 has been a dream to work with. Pros: -Full frame sensor allows me to capture rich details-Dedicated quick buttons on the side of the camera gives me quick access to change aperture, gain, and shutter speed-Quality HD viewing screen makes it easy to see what I am actually recording in terms of color, exposure, saturation, etc.Cons: -The build of the camera feels a little cheap, perhaps my bias is that with such...
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Highly Compatible

Moire / Aliasing and half-baked feature set ruin a brilliant idea

David Siegfried, Amazon
24 July 2013
  • Summary: This camera is wonderful and frustrating at the same time. It's the first and only dedicated full frame interchangable lens camcorder with a NEX e mount that can accept virtually any lens (via adapters), from Sony A mount to Canon, Nikon and even Leica M lenses. I wanted to dive in and immerse myself in all the full frame glory. But I can't fully do that and I'll explain why.

Great little video camera

Impulse Pro, B&H Photo
7 June 2013
  • Excerpt: I was searching for a lightweight, full frame video camera for personal use in place of my accessory requiring and resultantly heavy PMW-F3. The VG900 filled that role. While it does not replace the F3 in terms of dynamic range, codec and such, the weight and footprint factors, along with the ability to shoot in full manual mode, helped to make my choice.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance
  • Cons: Memory Slot

Expensive because of quality. Not a normal family video unit.

Felix, Amazon
19 May 2013
  • Summary: Because of the size and style of this little beauty, anyone could believe that it's a regular family video unit. It is not, because this one won't be focusing and changing in an automatic and permanent way the subject while you are filming. This unit looks nice and it's nice, but if you are looking for a regular family one, it is not for you and it is very expensive. And there is a reason: Quality, unless you want that in your videos.
