When Sony launched the NEX-VG10 I could not believe how amazing this camera was, sure there were a few drawbacks using this new Handycam, but videos shot with this camera were truly stunning… The NEX-VG20 was a nice update and today VG30 is still pretty nice, but being able to stuck all the bells and whistles of an A99 into a NEX-VG like Handycam is pure Geek pornography! Sony, if you were a woman I will beg you to marry me right now!

So yes you just figured it out but the NEX-VG900 is just a A99 with its amazing Full Frame 24.3Mpix sensor (making it the world’s first 35mm Full Frame Handycam), its stunning ISO handling, 14-Bit RAW capture and 1080/60p video capture…. Sony… I LOVE YOU !

Photokina 2012: Sony Stand Report on NEX-VG900

QuoteQuote:
Finally there are opportunities to explore the NEX-VG900 full frame video camera. All the cameras are fitted with A-mount adapters, given there are no full-frame E-mount lenses. The use of E-mount gives plenty of room to use adapters for other mount lenses, though.

While we were there, a delegation from Carl Zeiss arrived to see whether its E-mount Cine lenses would work without vignetting on the VG900. Since its designs are essentially full frame lenses with a long throat to extend the lens away from the mount, it seemed likely that they'd work, so long as the throat wasn't too narrow (which it might have been, given the expectation that it would only be used with APS-C/Super 35mm sensors). Sure enough, the CP2 50mm T2.1 Macro could be racked through its focus range without any shading appearing in the preview image.

Q&A with Sony’s Mark Weir: Will full-frame go mirrorless

QuoteQuote:
DE: Does a full frame mirrorless interchangeable lens camera make sense?

MW: Well actually, we just introduced one. It’s called the NEX-VG900. Most think of it in the context of a camcorder, but it is also an admirable still camera as well, and it does have an E-mount and it does have a full-frame image sensor, and you can use E-mount lenses on it. Needless to say with an APS-C crop, or it’s also supplied with the LA-EA3 mount adapter, so it also offers an A-mount as well. But the idea of a full frame E-mount camera, yeah, we already announced it, it’s called the NEX-VG900.

DE: Well, obviously very different form factors. I guess the question is does a rangefinder-style full-frame interchangeable lens mirrorless makes sense?

MW: Well, I think everyone understands that if we can make the VG900, we could make a still camera variant of that. But what’s really on everyone’s mind, I would imagine, is an E-mount interchangeable lens camera together with E-mount full frame interchangeable lenses, and that’s a different discussion. But can the camera be made and can it use full frame A-mount lenses? Yes, the product in the context of the VG900 was already announced. We have them on display here. But I think what those who are suggesting that a full-frame E-mount camera be developed is a full frame E-mount camera together with E-mount lenses that would operate with it and offer full frame coverage. And all one has to do is to look at the RX1 disassembled model and see the optical challenge that would represent.
