good catch!

of course there is a sensor of some type that knows when the lcd is closed. typically a tiny magnet in the door gets close to a Hall sensor. On the jvc folks simply stuck a tiny magnet at the right spot.

you guys with a sony camcorder could try a magnet now!

I just don't understand the NEX-VG10. Why not just buy a Canon 7D?

Because one wants a VIDEO camera optimized for video rather than a STILL camera with video features... it's a new and unexplored niche, one that may well turn out to be lucrative for Sony. They've also just released new SLT (another new category of camera) cameras using Alpha mount lenses, also more video oriented, although they are still cameras.

I'm still slightly undecided, as I like the looks of the new a55 and have some nice Alpha lenses already, plus the old DSLR is overdue for upgrading, and the DLSR versions of the new cameras have suddenly and mysteriously been "delayed", pre-orders cancelled, and pulled from the Sony site... yet the VG10 is quite the looker...

In another part of DVInfo there was a poster asking about using a Canon 60D / 7D / 5D Mark 2.
He wanted to use it for shooting weddings unattended from the back of a church.
Needless to say, the 4 GB / 12 minute limit was a major no-go for him.

Furthurmore, there is a well known issue with most of the above Canon HDSLRs overheating
if used continuously for protracted lengths of time. Using a video camera avoids both of
the above issues.

For my part, looking at the date B&H gives for this camera, it should be available in less than 2 weeks.
I am looking forward to reviews and demo footage.

Regarding the Bali footage...

I'm not sure if anyone commented on the fact that some of the long shots with blurred backgrounds had an odd look to the blur. They were more like blurred circles, not a smooth continuous blur. Anybody else see that?

...maybe they were using one of those telephoto lens with the mirror inside...doesn't that give such circular blurs? I saw from the credits that they had used a number of lenses beside the one supplied.

That would be the lens bokeh?

So what is the LCD/VF button do?

No one seems to have noticed it!

Where's the LCD/VF button? Did they rename the Finder/LCD button, or is it another button?

Finder is VF and LCD is LCD. Right?

Twixtor is the program creates 23.98 from 29,97. You use it on your movie.

This has been the killer for me as well. I would otherwise love to pick up a 60D, maybe even 2, but that time limit issue ...

When will Canon have a VG10 competitor?
