Sony HDR-TG5 Handycam is world's smallest HD camcorder

Sony HDR-TG5 Handycam is world's smallest HD camcorder
Sony is now producing the smallest full High Definition (HD) camcorder yet with its new HDR–TG5 Handycam. The new model offers a high-definition camcorder combining performance and simple operation into a portable body that can fit into most pockets and bags.

The camera comes with 16GB internal memory and Memory Stick data storage options. The internal memory of the Handycam can store up to 6 hours and 30 minutes of HD movies and up to 13 hours of HD movies when the optional 16GB Memory Stick is also used.

The HDR-TG5 is compatible with an exclusive, optional wide-angle conversion lens that enables the capture of panoramic landscape shots. In addition, the camcorder can be switched on and off by simply opening and closing its LCD panel. This allows users to start shooting movies almost instantaneously once the LCD panel is in the open position, and helps to conserve battery power when the camcorder is not in use.

The camcorder’s built-in GPS antenna and NAVTEQ digital maps allow users to geo-tag videos and photos so they can document when and where they shot them.

New Smile Shutter technology automatically snaps quality photos of subjects when they smile, even while recording video at the same time. To make sure the subject stays in focus, Face Detection technology recognises and enhances faces by automatically correcting focus, exposure and colour control.

Other features include 4.0-megapixel still image recording, Dual Recording and Smooth Slow Recording. With Dual Recording, users are able to capture high-resolution 2.3-megapixel still images while recording videos. Smooth Slow Recording enables a three-second video to be recorded as a smooth, 12-second slow-motion video by filming at 240 fields per second, helping any amateur director easily simulate slow-motion effects used in movies.

The HDR-TG5 is made of pure, high quality titanium and sports an enhanced, streamlined design. Premium Hard Coating is applied on its body surface to enhance scratch resistance and minimise fingerprint smudge.

The Sony HDR-TG5 is available from 1st July 2009 exclusively in Sony Style Stores across New Zealand with an RRP of NZ$1499.
