Sony introduces the NEX-VG10, the world’s first consumer camcorder with interchangeable lenses. The newest member of the NEX series, it is equipped with the same ExmorTM APS HD CMOS sensor used in Sony’s “NEX-5” and “NEX-3” digital cameras. Coupled with Sony’s BIONZTM processor, photographers will be able to capture full 1920×1080/60i high definition video at up to 24Mbps for true cinematic Blu-ray quality. The starting price for the NEX-VG10 is $1,999.99. For the complete specs and details check out Sony’s Blog.

Wait, I cannot fathom it being so starigtfhorward.

Mike, I’m waiting as well. When they get the optics in a prosumer body – with full audio integration – they’ll have a ground breaking system.

I don’t mean to try and sound like a prophet but I saw this coming the first day I saw a 5D. You know what I would like? A camera with the form similar to traditional movie camera with a real reflex optical viewfinder (yes I know that means a rotating mirror or solid state equivalent – maybe DSP based), a native Canon or Nikon or Pentax lens mount, an imager with similar size and quality of the 5D, pro-style audio inputs, and extended recording capability to cheap media like SD cards. I could forgo all the bells and whistles including auto-focus. Maybe, I’m just an old-fashioned guy but I would like a digital video camera version of my old Pentax K1000 SLR.

I am sure this is just the beginning of the next wave. I am really looking forward to the Panasonic with the micro four thirds mount that is supposed to be out this year.
