The Sony NEX-VG900 Full-Frame Interchangeable Lens Camcorder is the first Handycam camcorder with a 35mm sensor to fully exploit the artistic potential of interchangeable lenses. With a resolution of 24.3 effective megapixels, the camcorder's Exmor CMOS sensor is around 40 times larger than its equivalent in standard consumer camcorders and more than twice the size of the APS-C sensor found in other interchangeable lens Handycam models. With a wider view, surprising low-light sensitivity and robust defocusing capabilities thanks to an ultra-shallow depth of field, you can tell your story in dramatic fashion. The NEX-VG900 also captures full-frame, 24 megapixel still photos, with RAW format support for all the post-processing flexibility and quality expected from a pro-class type camera. The sensor also allows the creation of distinctive bokeh (attractive defocus) effects; high sensitivity for extremely clear, low-noise images; and effortless reproduction of smooth, true tonal gradation.
Besides the new 35mm sensor, the NEX-VG900 also offers you even more creative control with numerous options to help you create the image the way you envision it. Beautiful, film-like results can be achieved by shooting video in 24p progressive mode with CinemaTone Gamma and CinemaTone Color presets to precisely control cinematic grading effects. Additionally, AVCHD version 2.0 standard 60p recording maximizes the range of creative options for movie-makers to explore. Even greater flexibility is provided by a choice of new Picture Effect modes, enabling easy creation of artistic in-camera treatments.
The NEX-VG900 also provides you even more flexibility and creative options by including a LA-EA3 adapter to utilize A-Mount lenses. When it comes to lenses having more options and flexibility is always advantageous. With the LA-EA3 you can use A-mount lenses and take full advantage of wide-angle shooting at the lens's designed focal length with no cropping.
Please note: When using A-Mount lenses with the LA-EA3 adapter, there may be limitations in some features and functionality - including autofocus support. Please visit Sony's support website for detailed lens compatibility charts.
