Sony NEX-VG900 Full-Frame Interchangeable Lens Camcorder
Key Features
  • 24.3MP Full Frame 35mm Exmor CMOS Sensor
  • E-Mount Lens Compatibility
  • A-Mount Lens Compatibility via Adapter
  • Quad Capsule Microphone & 5.1 Sound
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.

question

Does the 3.5mm mic input provide phantom power to an external microphone?
Asked by: John C.
While the 3.5mm mic input of the NEX-VG900 provides 3.5VDC of Electret power, it cannot provide the 48DCV needed by phantom power microphones. If you were to connect a phantom power mic via a XLR to 3.5mm adapter to the camera, nothing will happen because there is not enough voltage.

question

I have a nex-vg900 I love it best camera I ever owned I recently purchased a FE-PZ 28-135mm Lenz and I'm worriedabout the lenz breaking off is there some kind of like lens to camera mount I can buy cuz I like to sling it
Asked by: Andre M.
I would suggest the Cavision RS-15IIM(250) Rod Support System for Mini DV Camcorders B&H # CARS15IIM. That may be enough. However, I would also suggest this lens support that should screw into the tripod support of the lens. Lanparte Double 15mm Rod Clamp with 1/4 -20 Screw B&H # LADRC02. These two pieces should have enough adjustability in order to work. Unfortunately, we are not able to test these all together.

question

The Sony NEX-VG900 has a zoom rocker on the body. What zoom lenses will zoom by this control? The PZ series? Other zoom lenses?
Asked by: John L.
I found that when you put your camera in cinema mode the toggle above the on-off switch makes the zoom go in and out for the lens

question

The description says there is an audio input but doesn't specify what type. I know it doesn't have XLR inputs so am I correct to assume it has 1/8 inputs? And how many channels of audio can it record?
Asked by: Anonymous
Your assumption is correct, the included audio connection is 1/8 . It can record 2 channel audio as well. Sony also makes the XLR-K1M Adapter and Microphone Kit. This will connect to the NEX-VG900's Multi-Interface Shoe and give you 2 XLR inputs for more professional audio options.

question

Dose Sony 35mm f/1.4G Wide Angle Prime Lens work with NEX-VG900 in auto focus Like E-mount lenses or it has focus noise like A-mount lenses with A-mount adapter?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Sony 35mm f/1.4G Wide Angle Prime Lens has a A mount and therefore there must be an A mount to E mount adapter in place like the included A-Mount Adapter (LA-EA3). Therefore if you have had noise with this adapter before, it would be there again most likely. I suspect however that in video mode any noise is somewhat mitigated.

question

I have Nikon F mount Zeiss lenses (50 and 18) -- will this give me full frame on the VG900?
Asked by: Nick M.
Yes, your Nikon F mount Zeiss lenses will be full frame on the Nex VG900, but no Auto Focus, you use Manual Focus only. Please check with BH video department the special adapter.
