HD in the palm of your hand - Sony Handycam HDR-TG1
I'm a huge, huge Flip camera fan, but if I had money to spend and a really serendipitous life where there was good stuff to record more often than not, I'd invest in Sony's Handycam camcorder, HDR-TG1. This hot little device will be available on May 30, 2008, in time for summer fun, the wedding season, vacations, and all your sun-filled adventures.
The HDR-TG1 is a small and slim titanium encased camcorder that delivers full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution video recording. In spite of this device being enormously sexy, expensive, and seemingly fragile, it's actually built for taking everywhere and for the fumble fingers in all of us. The titanium body is protected with Premium Hard Coating to provide resistance to even the smallest scratches.
List o' sexy perks:
* Records to Memory Stick PRO Duo media
* Sony’s ClearVid CMOS Sensor (with Exmor derived technology)
* BIONZ image processor
* 4.0 MP still images
* Sony Face Detection technology
High Definition - FH = up to 25 min., HQ = up to 55 min. SP = up to 65 min., LP = up to 85 min.
Standard Definition - HQ = up to 55 min., SP = up to 80 min., LP = up to 160 min.
This is a feat of design and functionality and it makes me excited to see where we're going next. My wallet isn't ready for the future, so I'll Flip for now.
Price: $899 at Amazon. (Pre-order for May 30, 2008 release.)
