Sony Korea to release its ultra-light premium full HD handycam

SEOUL, Korea (AVING) — <Visual News> Sony Korea releases its ultra-light premium full HD handy camcorder ‘HDR-TG5’ in Korea market, which combines powerful performance and simple operation into a sleek, portable body.

The camcorder’s built-in GPS antenna and NAVTEQ digital maps geo-tag your videos and photos so you can document your destinations on a map.

For added clarity and detail, a built-in flash reduces shadows and improves still images in low-light situations.
