Sony Readies Camcorder, With Interchangeable Lens


Sony Wednesday announced the planned release of the NEX-VG10, which the company calls its first interchangeable lens HD camcorder. Its release, the company, is meant to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the Handycam brand.

“The NEX-VG10 takes Sony's Handycam line to the next level by allowing unprecedented artistic expression that isn't possible with conventional consumer video cameras,” Andy Bubala, director of Sony's camcorder business, said as part of the announcement.  “With this camcorder, video enthusiasts and photographers can now capture cinematic full HD movies and premium stereo sound.”

The camera can capture full 1920×1080 high definition video at up to 24Mbps.

The NEX-VG10 will arrive in September for around $2,000.
