Sony Waterproof Handycam® Camcorder

SAN DIEGO, June 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Sony today unveiled a first for its lineup of Handycam® camcorders – a waterproof model that makes capturing your precious memories in high-quality video or still photography easy and worry-free in almost any environment.

The new HDR-GW77V camcorder can capture full HD video and 20.4-megapixel photos in extreme conditions, so that indoors or out, this stylish compact camcorder can keep up with any family’s active lifestyle.  Waterproof down to 16 feet, the camcorder’s 3.0″ (16:9) Xtra Fine LCD™ touch screen (921K) remains fully operational when submerged and it also has an “Underwater Mode” which adjusts the white balance for underwater conditions to make colors appear natural.

The HDR-GW77V Waterproof Handycam camcorder will be available later this month for about $700, at, Sony retail stores and other authorized retailers nationwide.
