Sony intros a cute rugged and waterproof Handycam, the HDR-GW77V

Sony often brings us some incredible products. The new waterproof Handycam from the Japanese tech firm is in the center of attraction now. The camcorder dubbed the Sony HDR-GW77V is impermeable enough that you can take it into a depth up to 16 feet in water. The gadget can withstand the 16 feet water pressure for almost an hour without any damage. The new HDR-GW77V has a nice look as well. It comes with a decent 3-inch fold-out LCD viewing panel with great image clarity.

With the fold-out screen, you can venture to capture images and videos out of your sight also. The rich Sony camera features the dimensions of 1.2 x 4.15 inches. Besides being a waterproof camcorder, it is also a rugged device that it will survive a 5-foot drop with no harms. Going by specs also, the Sony HDR-GW77V is a breathtaking camcorder.

The device packs a lot of special things inside its relatively smaller form factor. The new Sony Handycam comes with a huge 20.4-megapixel sensor that can capture video at full 1080p (60fps). It also can shoot video up to 28Mbps with 10x optical zoom. Notable other features of the waterproof Handycam include 16GB on-board memory, built-in GPS for geo-tagging capability and panoramic photos.

For memory storage, apart from the built-in 16GB, the Sony Handycam features an SDHC or Memory Stick Micro, which can help users expand the memory. Sony is to sell the waterproof Handycam for 70,000 Yen (approx. $862). However, the company hasn't yet revealed anything of its release date both in domestic and international markets.
