Sony to please travelers

Sony has unveiled what it calls the world's smallest 'Full HD' camcorder, priced at $900 suggested retail.

The camcorder, which will be available at retail in May, weighs just 10 ounces and measures just 1.3 inches wide by 4.7 inches tall by 2.5 inches deep.

The Sony HDR-TG1 Handycam, which can record 1920 x 1080 HD video, is targeted to vacationers looking to "travel light."

The camera can also save 4-megapixel digital photos directly to Sony Memory Stick PRO Duo(TM) or PRO Duo Mark2 media cards. (A 4GB PRO Duo Mark2 media card comes with the camera.)

Sony says the camcorder includes a new technology called "face detection," which can identify up to eight faces in the camcorder's 2.7-inch touch panel LCD screen, and automatically adjust focus, exposure, color control for natural-looking skin tones, and when photos are taken, flash control.
