Sony Unveils Compact, GPS-Enabled HD Camcorder

PCWorld
Earlier this year, Sony unveiled three hard-drive-based high-definition camcorders that also offered built-in GPS tagging and sorting of clips. Today, the company announced the Sony HDR-TG5V Handycam, a more compact high-definition camcorder that offers those mapping capabilities in a very slim, all-titanium frame.

Billed as a travel-friendly camcorder due to its GPS capabilities, durability, and compact size, the HDR-TG5V uses Navteq mapping software to sort and display recorded footage on a digital map interface.
Slightly beefier than a pocket camcorder, the titanium-framed HDR-TG5V Handycam offers 16GB of flash storage (plus a MemoryStick Duo slot) and records full HD video (1920 by 1080 resolution) to AVCHD format.
