Sony waterproof Handycam
It’s your perfect poolside partner. Great for trips to the beach, snorkelling expeditions and fun-packed family days out, the new Handycam GW55VE camcorder is waterproof to depths of 5m. It also resists dust and shocks from a height of up to 1.5m – so there’s no need to worry about a sudden shower of rain, or accidental drops by the pool or on the beach.
Made for everyday adventures, waterproof Handycam comes packed with advanced technology for clear, stable Full HD video and stills in any situation.
Image quality is everything you’d expect from Handycam. The Exmor R CMOS Sensor captures beautifully detailed, low-noise video footage and photos, even in low-light conditions where other camcorders struggle.
It’s teamed with a high-quality G Lens by Sony, capable of capturing everything from wide-angle scenes to dramatic close-ups. Extended Zoom boosts 10x optical zoom range to a powerful 17x maximum magnification: By Pixel Super Resolution processing ensures clear, ultra-detailed high-zoom shots.
Even when you’re zoomed in close or walking along, video footage looks clearer thanks to Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode that corrects hand-shake for stable results.
In a Handycam first, Intelligent Sweep Panorama lets you capture extra-wide scenes with a huge field of view. Just press the shutter button and sweep the HD camcorder to take in the biggest scenes. Using Face and Motion detection, Handycam makes sure that even moving people and objects are reproduced naturally as you sweep the camera.
Also new to Handycam, Self Portrait Timer ensures properly framed, clearly focused arms-length photos of you and your friends. Thanks to Face Detection, the GW55VE ensures beautiful self-portraits with no cut-off heads.
Not sure how to get the best out of any shooting situation? Intelligent AUTO recognizes up to 99 scene types, adjusting camcorder settings for best results. There’s even a special Underwater mode so those under-sea videos look better with rich, natural colours.
An ideal travel partner, waterproof Handycam also features on-board GPS that logs where all your clips and photos have been taken. See your current position onscreen, or view all those GPS-logged memories back home on your laptop with exciting online maps.
The new Handycam GW55VE waterproof camcorder from Sony is available in Europe from mid-May 2012.
