Overview
  • 1Description

Sony's HDR-TG5V High Definition Handycam Camcorder is a pocket sized powerhouse where true 1920 x 1080 video meets a rugged, yet sleek titanium body. Just like its predecessor, the TG1, this camera records to optional Memory Stick PRO Duo media, while giving you the added flexibility of recording to the 16GB built-in flash memory.

However, unlike its big brother, the TG5V features Geotagging. The built-in GPS receiver lets you tag your shots for storage and easy retrieval from the camera's Map Index. The GPS receiver also automatically sets the camcorder's clock to the correct time zone and shows your current location.

Other features of the TG5V include the 2.7" LCD with a touch panel screen for intuitive menu navigation and a 1/5" CMOS sensor for capturing brilliant 2.3MP video and 4MP stills. The professional Vario-Tessar lens features 10x optical zoom and SteadyShot image stabilization. In addition to these standard features, the TG5V also features Face Detection for automatic exposure and focus adjustment on up to 8 faces and Smile Shutter for capturing the best smiles in all your still images.

Hybrid High Definition Recording
Record all your memories in true 1920 x 1080 HD to either the 16GB embedded flash memory or to optional Memory Stick Pro Duo media.
1/5" Exmor Cmos Image Sensor
Sony's 1/5" Exmor CMOS sensor with ClearVid array captures brilliant 2.3MP videos and 4MP stills. The BIONZ image processor works together with the sensor to reduce image noise and improve response time.
Geotagging with Built-In GPS Receiver
Geotagging gives you the ability to tag your shooting locations. You can then play back your video and still images using the camera's Map Index function. Geotagging also automatically sets your camcorder's clock to the correct time zone and allows you to see your current location.
Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar Lens with 10x Optical Zoom
The professional quality Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens features precision ground optics for sharp, true-to-life image capture. The 10x optical zoom captures far off subjects with virtually no loss in image quality.
