Sony NEX-VG10/20/30 User Group Channel

  1. UPDATE: As I watched the footage more, around 1:12 as I zoomed in, the windows in the upper left seem to go from wide angle distortion to bowed very quickly and are distorted... maybe there is something else going on, no software fix? I don't know, this lens might not be the cure all, if there is such a thing, but the other options it offers might outweigh this one... I hope.

    After reading and seeing "pillow distortion" issues that people were having with this lens on the FS100 or 700, I found that those of us with the NEX VG10/20/30s were ok because of software in the cameras to handle this issue, so I decided to pull the trigger on the lens and see for myself.

    I see some distortion but nothing that will make this lens a problem for my shooting. It is clean and the zoom to me is very nice. On the VG20 there is NO zoom rocker, so you have to use either the side button or the zoom ring, but that is just the way it is. I would be cool if Sony would update the firmware so that we can use the zoom button on the IR remotes we have that have the zoom feature on it, but I won't hold my breath.

  4. It was one of those great summer days. Got the perfect weather, the great locations at Syvota and other sights of the Ionian sea, and a couple ready to have fun at the most important day of the beginning of their life together. So, here is a very short teaser, just a minimum preview of greater things to come.

    Filmed with Sony FS100, A77, VG20 and Canon 7D.

  5. Watch as Steve and Jens discuss the features of the Z-Drive, direct drive follow focus and the Tornado. The Z-Drive is a direct drive, no gear follow focus. When you pair the Tornado with the Z-Drive you get a mechanical handgrip follow focus.

Sony's new NEX-VG10/20/30 camcorder will revolutionize independent filmmaking, offering an incredibly low price point for its feature set. We've wanted a shalllow depth-of-field, interchangeable lens and larger sensor for low-budget filmmaking. And we've waited too long for RED to get its Scarlet to market (after incessant delays and price increases), so this will have to do. At this Channel associated with the User Group, we can share video samples from this exciting new camcorder.

Because the functionality and information is limited at Vimeo Channels like this, there's much more to see and do at the associated User Group, vimeo.com/groups/nexvg10 and videos added to the Channel should (and hopefully will) also always be added there.

For ease in keeping up with posted videos here, you can also follow updates offsite via the more ubiquitous social networking services of:

    I am an amateur film maker who owns an NEX-VG20EH, but I feel that I don't know my camera well enough. Can you think of any resources that may be of use to me to get my NEX-VG20EH black belt?

Heads up: the shoutbox will be retiring soon. It’s tired of working, and can’t wait to relax. You can still send a message to the channel owner, though!
