I’ve been passing by the Sony outlet store at Prime Outlets for several times now because I saw a lot of items below standard retail rates, discounts of about 15% or more! I held on my Benjamins tightly because I knew something worthwhile would be available this spring… well, it seems like a good idea after all.
The Sony HDR-TG5V is one definitely to crave for. I like how 6-hours of video can fit into this small “toy”. Oh I could almost imagine the comfort of not having to download to my Macbook every time I needed more space. And the comfort of slipping it into my jacket, or even my pant’s sidepockets too. It beats those clunky and huge handicams by several shots.
There is no firm word on pricing yet and I’m not even sure if this would be available at Prime Outlets too (though I’m keeping my fingers crossed for that). There are rumors that it will sell well around the US$1,000 mark.
Anyway, check out the Sony website for more details.
