Personal Electronics buzz
11 August 2009
  • Excerpt: The Sony 4.0 MP HD Handycam HDR-TG1 has big features packed into an 8-ounce package. The Sony HDR-TG1 is only 4.7-inch H x 1.3-inch W x 2.5-inch D. The scratch resistant coating on the lightweight titanium body of the camcorder gives a professional appearance. The biggest feature is the handycam's ability to record 1920 x 1080 full HD resolution video. The images are crisp and intense in color. The 2.7-inch TFT LCD display can be rotated for easy viewing.

Sony Handycam HDR-TG1 Review

Akihabara News
27 February 2009
  • Summary: Compact, Stylish and providing good video once turned in 720p, Sony with the TG1 will definitively attract a lot of potential buyer, but unfortunately for us the TG1 is not mature yet, several UI flaws combined with poor photo quality and a poorly design companion software make us wonder why spending SO much money when the HD1000 form Sanyo offers as good as video as the TG1 for half its price (In Japan)
  • Pros: Compact and Stylish, Good video, once converted in 720p, Good AF even in Low Light, Great IS
  • Cons: Horrible UI, Horrible Photo Mode, Needs Sony proprietary SOftware to edit video on your PC, No optional Wide angle lenses

  • Pros: Highly portable, arresting design, performed well in bright lighting
  • Cons: Below average low-light performance, unconventional shape takes some getting used to
