The Sony NEX-VG20 is a good update of the VG10 that's not too far from perfect. Image quality is excellent and sound has been upped to 5.1. Although the depth of field is no match for the Canon 5D/7D, the VG20 is a great stand-alone camcorder with...

De VG-20 is niet de eerste camera van Sony die zich op de grens tussen beter fototoestel en kwalitatieve videocamera nestelt. Ongeveer twee jaar geleden verschijnt de VG-10 , die ook in FWD besproken werd. Nu is er dus dit toestel, dat je kunt...

International Review By Les Numériques on 80

Le NEX-VG20 est une bonne amélioration face à l'ancienne version au point d'être presque parfait. La qualité d'image est très bonne et l'audio passe au 5.1. Certes, la profondeur de champ n'égale pas...

Die Sony-NEX-VG20 sieht auf den ersten Blick ziemlich vielversprechend aus: Großer Filmsensor mit manueller Kontrolle beim Filmen, gepaart mit dem Handling eines klassichen Camcorders. So etwas findet man bei keinem anderen Hersteller in dieser...
