Was the Sanyo Xacti‘s SD resolution recording capability and feminine design not up your alley? Check out the pint-sized Sony HDR-TG3E that boasts full HD quality (1920×1080) video and 5.1 sound recordings.
Design-wise, while it may be “cute”, Sony isn’t playing games. The HDR-TG3E sports a full titanium body making it 40% lighter than steel camcorders. The video camera is coated with a “Premium Hard Coating” that is resistant to scratches. A flip-out 2.7-inch LCD display, BIONZ processor (for superior image quality), face detection for up to 8 faces, and Sony’s D-Range Optimiser technology (for automatic adjusted contrast) rounds out its features list. An optional GPS unit will be available to allow geo-tagging of photos. The HDR-TG3E records videos directly onto Sony’s Memory Stick PRO Duo cards with support for 16GB cards; a 4GB card is included in the package. If you have an HDTV, the video camera supports TV-out via an HDMI cable.
The Sony HDR-TG3E will be available in May 2008 with an undisclosed (yet) price tag.
