Sony Handycam NEX-VG10 (photo samples)

Here are my first image samples from the <a href="http://reviews.cnet.com/digital-camcorders/sony-handycam-nex-vg10/4505-6500_7-34137491.html">Sony Handycam NEX-VG10</a>. Unfortunately, I'm on the road and my laptop is unsuited to any image or video analysis, but I'll update this slideshow next week with more information. I'll also write a hands-on preview. The NEX-VG10 is generally great, but it has some really awkward operations quirks, which will be annoying especially for EVF devotees.

Kit lens, Auto HDR

Here you can see much the Auto HDR improves on photos shot in very high-contrast light. The inset photo is just an example to show how harsh the lighting was.

Kit lens, fringing

As far as I can tell, the kit lens displays no fringing. The edge softness may be from the relatively slow shutter speed.

Kit lens, bokeh

The 18-200mm lens has some very nice out-of-focus rendering characteristics.
