Sony Handycam HDR-GW66VE

Smartphones and action cams attacked the old market of compact cameras on two fronts. The result? The segment loses some of its appeal after the first time but this does not stop Sony from continuing to evolve its Handycam line with a new model with very interesting features for those looking for a good compact camera. The new HDR-GW66VE incorporates an Exmor R CMOS sensor capable of recording Full HD 50p which in other words is equivalent to twice the fluidity of the classic film format in the Blu-ray from 25 frames per second. While smartphones and action cam offer convenient solutions but are full of compromises, here we have a pure device that offers everything you need in a small format.
