Sony NEX-VG10E review


Sony's NEX-VG10E is tear-inducingly expensive and laden with cinematic quality results and high quality stills. It's bulkier than most but when you have results as incredible as these it's hard to complain

Versatility ; Ease of use ; Solid and attractive body

Price ; Extra bulk over other cams ; Fiddly battery
