New Sony NEX-VG20 APS-C camcorder (replaces NEX-VG10)

Sony has this new Sony NEX-VG20 camcorder, which is an evolution of last year's NEX-VG10.

Press releases: Product pages: 3rd party coverage: Improvements seem to include:
  • Upgraded sensor
  • New framerates: 24p / 60p / 60i (US - no 30p), 25p / 50p (EU)
  • Ability to capture RAW
  • 5.1 channel surround audio
Availability expected in November. There are 2 flavors of it: NEX-VG20 is body only, NEX-VG20H comes with the 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 stock lens which - I recall - wasn't so well received (too slow).

friend of mine used a VG-10 for a week or two. He liked it a lot, great image, big sensor. A bit lacking in manual controls and very much (from that aspect) a consumer cam, but really nice image.
