SonySony Handycam HDR-TG3E camcorder : Now there’s no excuse for leaving your camcorder behind when you could catch the moment in sparkling HD. Sony’s sensationally styled Handycam HDR-TG3E is your perfect partner for nights out or weekends away. What’s more, it’s tough enough to keep up with today’s active lifestyles - whether you’re on the piste or paragliding. Great for city breaks when you don’t want to be weighed down, the TG3E slips effortlessly into a purse, bag or jacket pocket. Little bigger than your mobile phone, it’s the smallest, slimmest, lightest camcorder ever to feature 1920x1080 Full HD recording with crisp 5.1ch surround sound. It’s also the world’s first camcorder that features a body using pure titanium.
Sony TG3

Sony Handycam TG3 Titanium body
The titanium body of the Sony TG3 is 40% lighter than steel and twice as strong as aluminium. The tough titanium shell is finished with a Premium Hard Coating. This extra-strong protective layer shrugs off everyday scratches - from active sports or hectic holidays - ensuring the Sony HDR-TG3E keeps its high-fashion looks for longer. The stylish new Handycam has been created around the design concept of ‘My HD to Go’ - a pocket-sized Full HD camcorder that’s small enough to carry at all times for capturing great movie moments. Its ultra-compact size, chic looks and tough finish makes the TG3E ideal for any situation, from family breaks to the smartest party.

Touchscreen LCD display
The camcorder’s elegant, pared down lines are complemented by easy, intuitive operation via the LCD touchscreen. Record, Movie / photo mode and zoom can all be accessed via a conveniently-placed thumb lever and buttons. With ‘Quick On’ mode activated, the Sony TG3E is ready for action within a second of flipping open the bright, clear 2.7-inch Clear Photo LCD Plus touch panel.

Recording videos on a Memory Stick Pro Duo
Recording on Memory Stick PRO Duo media (4GB Memory Stick supplied) means there’s no need to carry bulky tapes or discs if you’re out for the evening or spending a weekend away and want to capture your favourite moments. An optional 16GB Memory Stick records up to 5 hours 55min of
full HD movies (LP mode).

Sony TG3E

Record full HD images with the Sony TG3E
Despite its tiny dimensions, the Sony Handycam TG3 makes no compromises on recording beautiful, detail-packed Full HD images. Sensitivity and lownoise performance are assured by the ClearVid CMOS Sensor that features Exmor derived from technology found in Sony professional camcorders and a digital SLR cameras.

Sony camcorder with BIONZ image processor
The Sony TG3 is complemented by the powerful BIONZ image processing engine that maintains superlative image quality for video and stills shooting alike. Thanks to the speed and responsiveness of the BIONZ processor, highresolution 4.0 megapixel still picture can be taken with photo mode, and 2.3 megapixel still pictures can even be taken during HD video recording.

Intelligent Face Detection technology
Intelligent Face Detection automatically adjusts focus, exposure, colour balance for clear, beautifully realistic videos and still pictures of friends and family. It recognises up to 8 faces in one scene, making it easier to shoot people in different situations. For even better ‘people pictures’, advanced compression technology automatically allocates more data to human subjects for more detailed faces with greater detail and lower noise.

Also powered by the responsive BIONZ processor, D-Range Optimiser technology adjusts dynamic range for more natural reproduction of high contrast and backlit scenes with strong highlights and shadows. Sound quality is just as important as great pictures. 5.1ch digital surround sound quality is enhanced with an automatic Zoom microphone function that focuses on foreground subjects for crisper dialogue. After shooting, Visual Index, Film Roll Index and Face Index make it easier to track down your favourite scenes on the large, easy-view touchscreen LCD.
