Sony HDR-GW77V/L Waterproof Camcorder

Sony-HDR-GW77VL

This rugged waterproof camcorder is ideal for users who like the outdoors and are interested in filming or taking photographs of extreme sports and all outdoor activities.

The Sony HDR-GW77V/L Waterproof Camcorder is a small, lightweight and extremely portable camera that is able to record full 1080p high definition footage. It comes with 16GB of internal memory, which can record up to 315 minutes of footage depending on the film quality selected. This is an extremely sturdy camcorder, waterproof down to a depth of five meters, and impact resistant when dropped from 1.5 meters or less. It also features dirt and dust resistant seals, so it can be used in mud, snow, and rain with no risk of damage. This is ideal for videographers who spend time in the outdoors and are into filming or taking photos of extreme sports and other extreme outdoor adventures where a waterproof camcorder would come in handy.

Features

The touchscreen display is 3 inches, large enough for you to easily see what you are filming and ensure that everything is in shot. The Sony HDR-GW77V/L Waterproof Camcorder can be used in low light levels due to the Exmor R CMOS sensor that is built-in, meaning your footage can be captured even when there is very little light. There are also a number of other features which help to make capturing high quality footage even easier, which include face detection and Optical Image Stabilisation, which means it is able to compensate for "camera shake", ensuring your images and footage are as smooth as possible.

This camcorder can be connected directly to your television, enabling you to view your footage on a large screen easily, but it also comes with editing software to turn your raw footage into a slick production, ideal for uploading to the internet, which can also be done simply and quickly using the software provided.

This is an easy to use piece of kit, ideal for someone who is not particularly experienced in filming, but who would still like to produce high quality videos.

I agree with quitter, the Nikon AW100 works amazing.But personally i believe that there is a better choice in the market- pentax WG-2.I have been using it for nearly 2 months, and both photo quality and waterproof funtion are awesome.Get more info here http://www.bestunderwatercamera.me .In addition,if you are looking for a cheap waterproof camera(under $200),Sony DSC-TX20 will definitely be your first choice.
