Sony Unveils Smallest Full HD Camcorder

HDR-TG1At just 4.7 x 2.5 x 1.3 inches and weighing 8 ounces without the battery, Sony’s HDR-TG1 Handycam ($899) is the world’s smallest full HD camcorder. In addition to 1920 x 1080 video, it records 4-megapixel photos directly to MS Pro Duo or Pro Duo Mark2 cards (it comes bundled with a 4GB PRO Duo Mark2). Don’t think you have to handle this tiny camcorder with kid gloves, though: Its titanium chassis is durable and scratch resistant (not to mention classy looking). The TG1’s other specs include face detection for up to eight faces, 10X optical zoom, 11 scene modes, Sony’s SteadyShot image stabilization, one-touch disc burning, and a 2.7-inch LCD. Sony claims that it can record continuously for 95 minutes on a single charge. Expect to see it in May.
