- Video Sharpness
The Sony NEX-VG20 didn't do a terrible job in our sharpness test, but its performance wasn't as good as we hoped it would be. In its highest-quality recording mode, the 1080/60p option, the VG20's video showed a horizontal sharpness of 700 lw/ph and a vertical sharpness of 650 lw/ph. Like we said, these numbers aren't bad, but they are still worse than the top consumer camcorders we've run through this test.
Shooting with its 60i video setting, the VG20 managed a horizontal sharpness of 650 lw/ph and a vertical sharpness of 550 lw/ph—results that are a notch below the camcorder's 60p sharpness numbers. Again, these numbers are good, but they aren't close to being great. More on how we test video sharpness.
