The PAL version of Sony's NEX-VG900E Full-Frame Interchangeable Lens Camcorder is the first Handycam camcorder with a full frame, 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. The NEX-VG900E 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.
Besides the new 35mm sensor, the NEX-VG900E also offers you even more creative control with numerous options to help you create the image the way you envision it. 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, Full HD 1080/50p video in AVCHD version 2.0 at 28 Mbps 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-VG900E 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.
