The famous “starblogger” Ken Rockwell stopped at Sony and tested the NEX-VG10 (Click here to read the full review). He usually reviews Nikon or Canon stuff so let’s see what he thinks about the VG10: “It’s about time someone made a large-sensor video camera dedicated for the video market, and it’s about time that Canon and Nikon SLRs got put to bed for video. SLRs were never made for video, and Sony knows video cameras better than anyone.“…”For those of you looking mostly to make video, I consider this a much smarter buy than a DSLR, and the NEX-VG10 includes a great lens for video; no need to use the interchangeable lens feature.”
Thanks Ken for posting a Sony review!

Imaging Resource (Click here) tested the Sony A580: “The only major fault we’d bring to the fore is the over-aggressive noise suppression in JPEG images, which strangely get worse in the red channel when you switch to Weak Noise Reduction mode. But there’s no arguing with our printed results, which show the Sony A580 able to produce good quality 20×30-inch prints from Large Fine JPEG images from ISO 100 to 400, and even the highest setting of 12,800 produces a good quality 5×7-inch print. ”
