As a training provider wanting to shoot support video films for all my training products, I was faced with having to hire a professional video camera or hire the services of a professional video cameraman.  The costs of both proved to be prohibitive.  With Sony, I was able to purchase a digital video camera that produced broadcast quality video films anytime I wanted and at a fraction of the cost charged by professionals!

Sony professional digital video camera lens Sony DCRVX2100 semi professional video camera features precision made Aspherical Ground Glass 58mm Lens.  The quality of the lens is critical in all photographic equipment--more so in semi professional video cameras.  The quality of each frame has to be of the highest integrity. 

Larger diameter allows more light to strike the Advanced HAD™ CCD imagers for greater detail and clarity, while the Aspherical lens reduces optical distortion, and provide better corner-to-corner focus.

Sony is one of the first manufacturer of semi professional video imaging equipment to invest in high quality lens.  Indeed this is true even in some of the less expensive cameras and digital video cameras in the Sony range.
