Sony HDR-TG5V Review

29 June 2009
  • Conclusion: Sony is positioning this particular camcorder as a traveler’s friend; a device for people on the move who want to be able to slip their video camera in their pocket as easily as they might a still camera—and without obvious sacrifice to image quality. The GPS geotagging feature is the icing on the cake, and ought to prove particularly enticing for folks who spend a lot of time on the road.
  • Pros: Great quality HD video; advanced functions usually found only in full-sized camcorders; clever minimalist design
  • Cons: Expensive; average bundled software; touchscreen controls for exposure and manual focus, are slower to access than physical buttons.

  • Summary: The Sony HDR-TG5 is a minor evolution of the TG1 that adds some useful features but addresses none of its predecessor’s faults. Nevertheless, if you can get used to the unconventional shape it won’t disappoint.
  • Pros: Beautiful titanium casing, highly compact, intelligent Easy mode, inbuilt GPS
  • Cons: Below average low-light performance, too similar to HDR-TG1, unconventional shape won’t please everyone
