Sony waterproof Handycam identical to European

Sony has outed a water- and dust-proof Handycam in Japan, similar to another video camera bound for Europe soon. The company suggests the HDR-GW77V can be left underwater for up to an hour at a depth of 16 feet, resists dust, and can survive up to a five-foot drop.

The camcorder features 10x optical zoom and uses an Exmor R CMOS sensor capable of 1080p video capture. A built-in GPS allows for geotagging shoots, while an underwater mode alters the colors when used in shallow water.

The HDR-GW77V appears to be identical to the European GW55VE in almost all respects except by name and the choice of colors available, and will be released in Japan on May 25 for 70,000 Yen (~$862 USD). The GW55VE is due in Europe during May, but it is unknown if it will be released in the US.
