Exmor APS HD CMOS
Sensor Central to the NEX-VG30H’s outstanding image quality and creative flexibility is the Exmor APS HD CMOS Sensor. Designed for use in video as well as stills, this APS-C sized sensor is able to record clear, high-quality video for hours on end without overheating. Like all Exmor sensors, the Exmor APS HD CMOS Sensor uses per-column noise reduction and A/D conversion for high-speed readout and outstanding noise characteristics.
Adjustable Frame Rates/ CinemaTone technology – Film-like Recording
For superior control over image expression, the NEX-VG30H features adjustable frame rates (24p, 25p/50i/50p) as well as CinemaTone technology, which is used to deepen colours and recreate film-like colour tones. When combined with 24p mode, you’ll have the required tools at your fingertips to create professional-looking video footage.
All-new E-mount 18-200 Power Zoom lens and XGA OLED Tru-Finder
The NEX-VG30H includes a brand new 18-200mm E-mount Power Zoom lens, allowing smooth, silent zooming whilst shooting. The camera also has a built-in zoom rocker with an 8-step zoom speed adjustment to ensure you always have the ultimate control. NEX-VG30H also features an XGA OLED Tru-Finder, offering quicker focus response, higher contrast and higher resolution when compared with standard EVF viewfinders.
5.1 Channel Quad Capsule Spatial Array Microphone
High quality audio on your recordings can take your finished footage from a simple recording to an immersive experience. The 5.1ch Quad Capsule Spatial Array Microphone uses four omni-directional capsule microphones to provide surround sound. Working in concert to eliminate extraneous noise, these microphones provide clear, crisp and directional surround sound with truly remarkable fidelity, so your movies will sound as good as they look.
3″ Xtra Fine Touchscreen LCD display (921k pixels)
The 3” Xtra Fine LCD touchscreen featured in the NEX-VG30H offers remarkably high contrast and brightness, delivering more natural, realistic colours and easier viewing in bright conditions by reducing glare. The 270 degree swivel display also allows for easy viewing of the LCD in different shooting positions.
The NEX-VG30H delivers the manual control that advanced videographers have been looking for in a large-sensor video camera. Users have full control of Iris, gain and shutter speed both before and during shooting, while white balance and creative styles are fully customisable. Combined with a broad range of lenses for the E and A mount systems, these controls give NEX-VG30H users complete creative freedom.
