Hit the beach, reef or pool this summer with the brand-new pocket camcorder from Sony that’s ready for anything life throws your way.

Waterproof to a depth of 10 metres, the slim new Handycam HDR-GW66VE also shrugs off dust, dirt, freezing temperatures to -10C and accidental drops or knocks. So if you’re swimming, sunbathing – or even skiing – there’s no excuse for leaving your camcorder behind.

Perfect for capturing all those family moments, the easy to use Handycam HDR-GW66VE makes it deliciously simple to shoot smooth, steady Full HD 50p video. Thanks to the high-quality G Lens and Exmor R CMOS sensor, you’ll capture sparkling Full HD video footage and detail-packed still photos – even indoors, on gloomy days or at dusk.

Even when you’re zoomed in, shots look clear and blur-free thanks to SteadyShot Active Mode that corrects for wobbly hands. You’ll see the difference with smoother, more professional results that aren’t a headache to watch.

Great-looking self-portraits have never been simpler. A conveniently-positioned extra record button on the camcorder’s front allows fumble-free self-shooting of movies and still photos with Handycam held at arm’s length.

If you’ve got seriously cinematic ambitions, the Handycam HDR-GW66VE records video in the top-quality AVCHD format for enjoying or your Full HD TV or burning to Blu-ray Disc. And if you can’t wait to share the holiday memories, choose web-friendly MP4 recording for no-fuss uploads to your favourite social networking sites. It’s easy to manage, edit and share clips and photos shot on Handycam with free PlayMemories Home software for your PC from

You’ll get extra-impressive results if you’re viewing footage and photos back home on your compatible BRAVIA TV. Support for Triluminos Colour gives a vivid palette of supremely natural colours, from clear summer skies and lush grass to vibrant tropical fish.

A range of co-ordinating accessories for your Handycam includes the LCM-GWA semi-hard carrying case. Even if you’ve just climbed out of the pool, clever water-tight styling lets you store the damp camcorder safely without getting the contents of your travel bag wet.

The waterproof, dust-proof, shock-proof and chill-resistant new Handycam HDR-GW66VE Full HD pocket camcorder by Sony will be available from June 2013.
