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.
