Sony NEX-VG30




What do you think about this video?

Soldier1287: how would it preform with FE lens? I cannot find videos anywhere of it with FE lenses

Jesse Lee: one more question, what is the flatest profile I can shoot with this camcorder? slog2 or 3? if not, can I switch it to portrait or neutral like alpha mirrorless cameras? thanks again.

Jesse Lee: does anyone know about its auto focusing capability compared with a6000?

Toba Media: can we use all flash light on this camera? or only Nikon speedlight sb-910

Electronic Methods: It's a decent camera, but compared to the NS700 it is A LOT darker. I have to increase the gain to twice as high in order to let in the same amount of light. Which kind of defeats it's low light performance selling point...

AzovPort: Спасибо!

nil1230: theres no slow mo in this one r u serious sony!?

gearheadflicks: Just bought the VG30... IT DOES NOT SUPPORT VIDEO DATA info (battery info and Record on etc, ) to an external monitor via HDMI. I'm on the phone right now with Sony trying to downgrade our VG30 to a VG20. (Sony confirms this fail) We use jibs and glide rigs... so not knowing if you're recording or the battery is about to die is very important. Seems like a firmware update could fix this?

Yuriy K: For everyday use you would still want 18-200 instead of 18-55 (unless you're on a tight budget) which comes in a VG30H kit, because of better zoom level, plus you might want something for low light, like 35mm F/1.8 prime lens. If you're not going to buy more than one lens, then what's the point to have this camcorder - you could get an PJ790 and be happy with it. Also, for better image quality look for lenses with white on blue logo, but they are expensive.

0&FF: You forgot to tell them what are your requirements, what are you going to shoot mostly. It's like "what car would you recommend for me?". Are you going to race, to deliver cargo, to repair appliances, to tow?

B and H: The Redrock Micro microShoulderMount Deluxe Bundle is a good choice that features standard 15mm rods for universal compatability (B&H # RE80030023). You can pair it with the Tilta 4 x 4" Lightweight Matte Box from ikan which easily mounts onto 15mm rods via its rod adapter - (B&H # IKMBT05). Please contact us via e-mail if you have additional questions: askbh{at}bandh{dot}com. Mark S.

B and H: Yes - this camera and lens combination offers manual focus and zoom along with the automatic functions. Please contact us via e-mail if you have additional questions: askbh{at}bandh{dot}com. Mark S.

Pedro Ramos: What about a compatible rig, for a matte box, etc? Any recommendations? And what about a tripods?

Pedro Ramos: Does this lenses allow manual focus and zoom?

B and H: The E-Mount SEL 1855 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Zoom Lens for Alpha NEX Cameras (Silver) from Sony is designed for use on Alpha NEX digital cameras. This standard zoom lens has a 35mm format equivalent to a 27-82.5mm lens. This lens will offer manual zoom and focus when coupled with the SONY NEX-VG30 camcorder. B&H# SO1855Q.

guitarheadization: Hey B&H guys! I will be purchasing the body only version of this camcorder from your website shortly. Any recommendation for a good lens? as long as i can manually adjust focus and zoom (: thanks!

New Perspective Pictures: Hi! I bought the Sony NEX VG30H. I personally think that this is a great option. You get what you pay for and it has a pretty good sensor size for this price. I've used this a lot and this camera has a lot of nice features! I recommend it!

B and H: Yes, the LCD screen will flip over to view from the front. Dana G. askbh{at}bandh{dot}com

Steven Rankin: seriously considering getting the vg30 in a few months as it's just at the perfect price range right now but I do have some questions that I've yet to find answers too, just little things like. How flexible is the led screen? Does it flip all the way round so a person on camera can see what the shot is?

LimitsEdits: PLEASE HELP ME! I want to invest in a good camera for making short movies, documentaries etc.. but im not sure what to get, i was looking at dslrs such as the 7d or any other ones, but i could also get a pro camcorder such as the sony nex vg30 which i saw in Best buy. Can somebody help me decide what to get for a filmmaker? I really cant choose, some saw dslrs have a more movie like video because of the sensor but idk. Please help!
