Sony NEX 5N versus FS100 and VG20 – Quick comparison from Andrew Reid on Vimeo.

Andrew Reid over at EOS HD has posted some test footage between the Sony Nex 5N, Sony FS100 and Sony Nex VG20. Check out the article on EOS HD here for more details.

How does the NEX 5N compare to Sony’s higher end dedicated video cameras?

Well first of all let me tell you that the VG20 is an absolute piece of crap. This is a camera that is meant to sit below the FS100 and is a good $1700 more expensive than the NEX 5N and yet it has a plethora of disadvantages compared to the diminutive mirrorless camera. It brings so little to the party for that extra $1700 namely a top handle and better audio. But in adding those, it also brings massive operational and build quality frustrations to the hapless operator.
