Sony Handycam NEX-VG20 Camcorder Review$2,199.00
Here's what you need to know about the NEX-VG20: it's got an interchangeable lens system that works with Sony's E-mount lenses (or with A-mount lenses if you purchase an adapter), and it uses a large APS-C CMOS sensor similar to what Sony put in its NEX-5N digital camera. So, in a sense, the VG20 is a camcorder with the guts of a compact system camera—large image sensor, interchangeable lens system, and access to a full set of manual exposure controls. The body feels strong and durable, and the its right-side grip is just as snug as any handheld prosumer or professional camcorder we've reviewed in recent memory. We reviewed the VG20 with its kit lens, an 18-200mm f/3.5 E-mount lens with built-in optical image stabilization.
