Sony’s new HDR-GW77V Handycam ably dispels the notion that waterproof camcorders produce subpar quality video. Instead, the powerful 20.4 megapixel pocket camcorder positions itself as a rugged camera you can take anywhere. Sony’s clever design includes waterproofing for up to 16 submerged feet, dustproof housing, and shock absorption sturdy enough to withstand a five-foot high fall.
The HDR-GW77V is capable of capturing 1080p video through its 29.8mm lens, with 10x optical zoom and SteadyShot technology allowing you to amp the quality of your footage. Data is stored in almost 16GB worth of internal memory; like all Sony products, storage is expandable via memory stick and mirco SD. Travelers in particular will enjoy the built-in GPS module and maps loaded directly into the device’s drive.
Able to capture dazzling images and videos while taking a hit, the HDR-GW77V Handycam is a top product for casual users and adventurers alike.
