The Sony Full HD, water-resistant pocket camcorder is the first of its kind. Watertight even when taken up to 5 metres deep, this handy little camera is also resistant to dust, shocks, and falls from up to 1.5 metres.
The idea of a durable camera resistant to the hazards of extreme sports isn't new - as can be seen by Easyvoyage's review of the GoPro HD Hero sports camera. However, what makes the Sony model unique is its compactness.
Even the clumsiest user would struggle to break this device, and as such, there is no need to worry about it falling in the pool or on the sand. Moreover, as there is no need to be too careful with this camera, you can film your rougher sporting adventures such as rock climbing or mountain biking, as well as underwater expeditions.
Very resistant, the Sony Full HD camcorder also proves very impressive on the technical front. 10x optical zoom, 29.8mm wide angle and LCD touchpanel are just some of the features it has to offer. The built-in memory is 16MB and as with most cameras, you can increase this by using an additional memory stick or card.
Compact and light (214 grams), this little camcorder also has an inbuilt GPS system to locate and tag all your photos and videos. Available in black and white, the Sony Handycam GW55VE really is the best of its kind and will be a welcome guest on all your travels!
