The first Handycam with a 35mm full frame sensor from Sony, the NEX-VG900 packs a 24.3-megapixel Sony-developed full frame Exmor CMOS sensor approximately 40 times larger than the equivalent in ordinary consumer camcorders. It's also more than twice the size of the APS-C sized sensor found in other interchangeable lens Handycam models.
At 482g light (including battery and memory card), the 24.3-megapixel RX1 packs a 35mm full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor and wide aperture F2 fixed-focal lens into a body compact enough to fit easily into the palm of your hand.
