Penguins and the Sony NEX-VG20 Camcorder

Kings of South Georgia by cotton coulson

Here's a nice video shot with the Sony NEX-VG20 Camcorder in South Georgia Island with National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions by Cotton Coulson. Here is what he has to say about the VG20:

Using the Sony NEX VG-20, demonstrating what can be shot with this camera in remote regions. All taken with standard Sony lenses, edited with Final Cut X, no grading, wanted to show how the camera performs right out of the box. Remember also that this camera takes beautiful stills.

The form factor is impressive. It's like shooting video with a Leica rangefinder camera. Only negative feedback is managing some of the controls off the LCD screen, especially in harsh weather conditions, but on the flip side, the camera is so portable, making video something fun to do again.
