Sony Handycam NEX-VG20 Camcorder Review$2,199.00
The interchangeable lens system on the VG20 is definitely the camcorder's greatest asset. But having this feature also exposes some weaknesses. For example, the camcorder has no zoom lever (you can only zoom with the lens ring), and some of the auto controls don't work as quickly as they do on more traditional camcorders. Still, we are impressed with the VG20's simple design and light (for an interchangeable lens model) package. The button layout is simple and uncluttered, the hand strap and right-side grip are more than adequate, and all of your most important features are accessible on the fly. Sure, there is room for improvement, and the VG20 isn't going to react and function in the same was as a single-lens prosumer camcorder would, but we think Sony is heading in the right direction with this design.
