First 35mm Full-Frame Handycam Camcorder: NEX-VG900 from Sony SAN DIEGO, CA, USA -- Sony Electronics unveiled the new NEX-VG900 Handycam® camcorder, the first Handycam camcorder with a 35mm sensor and a resolution of 24.3 effective megapixels, around 40 times larger than its equivalent in standard consumer camcorders and more than twice the size of the APS-C sensor found in other interchangeable lens Handycam models,
the world's first consumer 35mm full-frame interchangeable lens camcorder,
according to the World Record Academy: www.worldrecordacademy.com/.
The Guinness world record for the Largest collection of film camera was set by Richard LaRiviere (USA), who owns 894 different film cameras.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the Largest collection of still cameras (still photography), set by Dilish Parekh of Mumbai, India, who has a collection of 4,425 antique cameras.
With a resolution of 24.3 effective megapixels, the camcorder's Exmor® CMOS sensor is around 40 times larger than its equivalent in standard consumer camcorders and more than twice the size of the APS-C sensor found in other interchangeable lens Handycam models.
It captures full-frame, 24 megapixel still photos, with RAW format support for all the post-processing flexibility and quality expected from a pro-class DSLR camera.
The sensor also allows the creation of distinctive 'bokeh' (defocus) effects; high sensitivity for extremely clear, low-noise images; and effortless reproduction of smooth, true tonal gradation.
Beautiful, film-like results can be achieved by shooting video in 24p progressive mode with CinemaTone Gamma™ and CinemaTone Color™ presets to precisely control cinematic grading effects. Additionally, AVCHD™ version 2.0 standard 60p recording maximizes the range of creative options for movie-makers to explore.
Even greater flexibility is provided by a choice of new Picture Effect modes, enabling easy creation of artistic 'in-camera' treatments.
Whether you're shooting HD video or stills, Picture Effects add a new level of expression to content.
Modes like Posterization, which creates a high contrast abstract look by heavily emphasizing primary colors or black and white; Retro Photo, which creates the look of an aged photo with sepia color tones and faded contrast; Pop Color, which produces a vivid look by emphasizing color tones; and Partial Color, which produces stunning monochrome photos containing a single designated color (red, green, blue or yellow) are just a few of the effects that make ordinary images and scenes come to life.
