The Sony E-mount f/3.5-6.3 18-200mm OSS zoom lens features an 11x zoom ratio for superior versatility. With six selectable zoom speeds, you'll find the perfect option for every production. Designed to shoot video, this lens features a smooth and silent AF system coupled with Optical Steadyshot™ image stabilization with Active Mode, giving you the flexibility of a removable lens coupled with the ergonomics and ease-of-use of a Handycam® camcorder.
The NEX-VG30 camcorder features the same sensor format that Sony builds into its standard size DSLR cameras. With approximately 19.5 times the surface area of conventional camcorder sensors, the 16.1MP Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor makes capturing high-quality, cinematic video with a shallow depth of field a breeze.
Take advantage of direct power zoom with variable zoom speed control. Featuring an all-new powered zoom seesaw lever for variable and constant speed electronic zooming, you'll experience expanded freedom and flexibility when composing your shots. The easy-to-access lever support 2x digital zoom that can be used with both variable and fixed focal length lenses.
There's never been anything like the high-contrast Tru-Finder OLED electronic viewfinder. For size, speed and brightness even after sunset, it's truly a gem. Boasting 2359K dots for ultra-high resolution, images pop with richness, clarity and detail. A high contrast ratio lends superb depth, while motion blur is reduced to a minimum. You can even see the results of camera adjustments in real time through the viewfinder.
High-quality video demands high-quality audio. The Quad Capsule Spatial Array Surround stereo microphone contains four precision-placed microphone capsules that are perfectly angled at 45 degrees to provide exceptional front-side directivity and stereo separation.
Complete the picture with precision sound. Dedicated mic and headphone inputs allow you to attach external microphones—like shotgun mics for pinpoint audio recording—and headphones to monitor sound.
