    Compact waterproof 60p HD Camcorder w/ 20.4MP still capture
    The Handycam HDR-GW77V camcorder is built to handle extreme environments, allowing you to concentrate on safety and composition while capturing Full HD videos and 20.4MP photos. The camcorder is waterproof down to 16 feet (IPX8), and its 3.0-inch touch-screen remains fully operational underwater. It also has a shock resistance rating for up to 5 foot drops plus dirt (MIL-STD 810F Method 516.5-Shock standards )and dust resistant seals (IP5X) that help make it nearly impervious to mud, snow, rain, and grime.

    Back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor for superb low-light video
    Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony’s back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor. Designed for compact cameras and camcorders, the Exmor R CMOS sensor relocates the photo diodes above the support circuitry, maximizing the light gathering area per pixel so you can shoot with better results in lower lighting conditions.

    Geotagging with built-in GPS receiver & NAVTEQ maps
    A built-in GPS receiver makes the HDR-GW77V an ideal choice for travelers. The receiver gives you the ability to view your current location on the LCD map display, as well as "tag" your shooting locations. Tagged videos and still images can be reviewed and played back using the Map Index function on the camcorder or once downloaded to your PC using the supplied PlayMemories Home software. Additionally, the receiver automatically adjusts your camcorder's clock to the proper time zone.

    Built-In Flash
    The built-in flash will assist in shedding light on your subject when shooting still photos.

    Event Browse groups video/stills by events automatically
    Event Browse conveniently groups your images and videos together for easier viewing. The date range that Event Browse groups your pictures and videos is easily adjusted to suit your needs. When used with the Highlight Playback feature, making and sharing a highlight reel from your event is easy and fun.

    Golf Shot
    Building on the slow-motion capture capabilities of Smooth Slow Record, Golf Shot captures a few seconds of motion as a sequence of up to 22 still images, which can be viewed/printed individually or as a composite 'sequence shot' image, perfect for analyzing the nuances of a golf swing, tennis serve, and other fast action.

    Up to 4 hours of recording with 16GB embedded Flash Memory
    The built-in 16GB3 embedded Flash memory can record and store up to 4 hours of high definition video footage (HD LP mode).

    Wide angle (29.8mm) G Lens to capture everything you want
    Experience the pinnacle of Sony lens technology with the professional-quality G Lens. Engineered for superior optical performance, Sony G lenses deliver brilliant, accurate color reproduction and sharp, amazingly detailed images. In addition, the 29.8mm focal length in Photo Mode and Video Modes offers a broader perspective for enhanced wide angle shooting.

    Memory Stick Micro and Micro SD/SDHC compatible
    Expandable memory with Memory Stick Micro and Micro SD/SDHC card slot.

    Tracking Focus follows selected subjects in/out of the frame
    Tracking Focus works as an extension of Face Detection to allow you to select an object with a touch of the LCD and have the focus follow the selected object, even if it leaves the frame and returns.

    Intelligent Auto (99 different scene combinations possible)
    Intelligent Auto mode goes a step beyond traditional auto modes by analyzing your shot and then automatically selecting the appropriate settings from ten distinct scene modes and wind noise reduction. There are 99 different combinations possible: Auto / Night Scene / Night Portrait(Photo Mode only) / Sunrise & Sunset / Fireworks / Landscape / Portrait / Spotlight / Beach / Snow / Underwater. With the added feature of ‘underwater mode’ the camera will even intelligently and automatically adjust white balance levels while underwater.

    Play Memories Home Lite built-in
    With the pre-installed Play Memories Home Lite software the HDR-GW77V makes it easy to pre-select videos and images in the camcorder and conveniently upload them from the camcorder to a compatible PC and popular internet sharing sites without the need for any additional software or install.

    17x Extended Zoom to get even closer to the action
    Extended Zoom works in conjunction with 10x optical zoom to get even closer to the action while maintaining HD image quality.

    Optical SteadyShot image stabilization w / Active Mode
    Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for greater degrees of camera shake to deliver stunningly smooth video from wide angle to full telephoto shooting. In addition, innovative 3-Way Shake-Canceling adds electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture.

    3.0" Xtra Fine LCD display (921K)
    The 3.0" (16:9) Xtra Fine LCD screen (921K) displays sharp, bright, vivid images, letting you compose a shot more easily -- even outdoors, while enabling you to change settings to best represent the scene. This intuitive touch-screen is fully operable under water for convenient use in even wet environments.

    Face detection with Smile Shutter technology
    Sony’s Face Detection technology can automatically distinguish between children and adults. Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts flash, focus, exposure, and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends. When engaged the camera also employees Smile Shutter technology to ensure you capture a smiling face each and every time.

    Highlight Playback creates movies with transitions for you
    Why spend hours editing your movies when you can let your camcorder do it for you? Highlight Playback identifies and compiles key scenes into a short, entertaining movie complete with music and transitions. You can even pinpoint the exact scene you want to include in the highlight reel.

    Intelligent Sweep Panorama mode
    Put your Handycam camcorder in still photo mode and capture expansive landscapes with a single press of a button. Intelligent Sweep Panorama mode reaches beyond the traditional wide angle lens to let you capture expansive, breathtaking shots of landscapes or cityscapes in incredibly detailed high resolution. Just press the shutter and pan the scene with a sweeping motion. The camera takes care of the rest.
