Sony Handycam TG5V With GPS

Here is a successor to the Sony Handycam TG1. The new TG5V (or TG7 in Europe) is now lighter and smaller than its predecessor. Weighing at 230 grams and measuring 30mm x 117mm x 62mm, the camera has 16GB of Internal memory (or 6hours of video recoding), a 30mm wide angle, a new BIONZ and Exemor image processor for low light recording, and new coating for the Camera body to prevent scratches. What makes this camcorder special is that it has an integrated GPS antenna and NAVTEQ maps that can be used to automatically geo-tag videos or images to keep a record of the exact shooting location. The Sony Handycam TG5V will be available in Japan from April 20 onward.
