Ces derniers jours, plusieurs tests du caméscope à objectifs interchangeables de Sony le VG10 sont apparus sur le web.
« The Sony VG10 is an enigmatic product. It has features, such as a large sensor and interchangeable lenses that are clearly aimed at the high-end user, and a price to match. It has a terrific sensor, a 24Mbps codec, a fantastic bundled lens, and great built-in audio. It has an interchangeable mount that allows the use of Sony Alpha lenses as well as Leica M, Zeiss M, Voigtlander M and PL mount glass. It is also a fine 14MP stills camera. A killer product, right?
But then Sony cripples it with serious firmware omissions such as the lack of Zebras, no focus confirmation, no 24P mode, and no raw mode. These aren’t minor omissions. Name me a camcorder at even half the price that doesn’t have most of these operational features, or even a $500 DSLR (let alone a $2,000 one) that doesn’t have raw mode. The VG10 is also built around the flawed user interface of the NEX5, which has been roundly criticized for its opaqueness and unfriendliness not just by me but almost every other reviewer thus far. »
« Preliminary Conclusion
Shooting with the VG10 is a new experience for me. The form factor was slightly off-putting, but after an hour or so spent familiarizing myself with the controls and experimenting with different shooting methods, I grew accustomed to its unique design and shot some fun video.
Of course, my positive impressions of the VG10 could be influenced by the absolutely gorgeous Wyoming countryside, which makes for an ideal subject. Check back soon for the full DCR Sony VG10 full review to find out for sure. »
« AV Watch found the NEX-VG10 to offer smoother video than the NEX cameras, and the omnidirectional microphone (with four mic capsules) seemed to have more than double the recording ability/power of the microphone in the HDR-CX550V. »
