Sony unveils compact HD handycam

Sony has unveiled the HDR-TG3E, which it claims is the world’s smallest and lightest 1920 HD camcorder available. Measuring 33 x 119 x 63mm it certainly compact, and the titanium body should help it to withstand scratching. The Memory Stick Pro Duo is as usual Sony’s storage medium of choice, and a 4GB stick is supplied. Four Megapixel stills are captured as well as the HD video, and it appears to use the AVCHD format including 5.1 surround sound. The 2.7in LCD touchscreen should make it easy to use, and an optional GPS unit will allow geotagging.

This stunner will be available Stateside from next month for around $900, with no word yet on the European launch date or price. I’m looking forward to the reviews to see how the low light performance compares to my sadly lacking Sanyo Xacti HD2.

    Look awesome. Been waiting for some decent HD camcorders to come around, I look forward to seeing review on this too! (Not hideously expensive either)
