and to achieve such high quality, the NEX-VG10 utilizes an Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor that measures 23.4 x 15.6mm, approximately 19.5 times larger than those used in conventional camcorders."
But even if they did record and are saying something valid, picture quality isn't a very important attribute of a camcorder based on earlier threads...
You didn't get the thrust of my statement I see and I guess you don't subscribe to Videomaker. If you did, you'd immediately have been in agreement with me. Often they have one line on PQ (if any) and spend 90% of the review discussing the location of buttons. Their comments on "full 1920X1080 HD....." can be obtained by visiting the Sony site. C'mon, really. How was this footage 'stunning'? How was the low light, how was the noise, how were the artifacts...need I go on?
Again, I have no idea if they actually recorded any footage with this camera. For a 'breakthrough' camera, don't you think more than one line is called for when describing PQ in a review? Better reviews will go on and on and on about PQ, describing every aspect of it.
But I guess it's more important to play 'gotcha'.
