(Sunday, November 21, 2010 - 15:39 EST)

Sony Electronics Inc. has released a firmware updates for its NEX-VG10 E-mount Full HD camcorder, mirroring the recent updates for its Sony NEX-3 and NEX-5 single lens direct view digital cameras.

As with those updates, the new Sony VG10 firmware version 02 allows autofocusing when using a variety of Sony's Alpha-mount lenses via the LA-EA1 mount adapter, and this change also requires that the adapter firmware itself is updated to firmware version 02. No other changes are described in the new Sony NEX-VG10 firmware, which is available on both the Windows and Macintosh platforms. Customers using Windows XP, Vista, or 7 in either 32-bit or 64-bit flavors can find the VG10 firmware update here, while customers with Macintosh OS X v10.5 or 10.6 can find the update here. The mount adapter update is likewise available for Windows users, and for Macintosh users.

The full list of Alpha-mount lenses supporting AF on the NEX-VG10 is the same as that for the Sony NEX-5 and NEX-3 digital cameras, as follows. Note that AF speeds will vary depending on the specific lens model in use, and may be significantly slower than with an E-mount lens:
