Sony Developing Interchangeable Lens Camcorder for 2010
Hot on the heals of today’s NEX-5 and NEX-3, Sony has announced the development of an interchangeable lens HD camcorder. While specs have yet to be released, Sony confirms that the cam will sport an APS-C CMOS sensor and full compatibility with the latest E-mount lenses. Sony A-series and Minolta glass will work via an adapter.
This is Sony’s first camcorder to use dedicated SLR lenses. Following Panasonic’s AG-AF100, it will be interesting to see how the larger CMOS chip effects low-light performance and video performance. The product name and price are TBD, but Sony is slated to begin production in the fall or winter of 2010.
Audio inputs? A proper viewfinder? What are the things you really want from an SLR lens camcorder?
