[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Brian Tong here at CES 2010 with the Sony Handycam HDr-Xr550V. This is a 1080i camera. For stills, it'll get you a 12-megapixel picture. It has a wide-angle lens with a 10X zoom. Also, you'll see here this nice, big, 3.5-inch LCD, and it's also a touchscreen display so you can do some controls on here. Also, another unique thing, it's loaded with a 240 gig hard drive to store all those videos. It also has a GPS chip in here, so you can geotag your videos, and you can find out later where you actually took those videos. Now, another trend that we've seen in Sony's really trying to support not only its memory stick format, but also the mini-SD card format, and this is something that's gonna make these products a lot more lucrative and universal because people were kind of complaining about just being locked into memory sticks. Now, this device is going to be $1399.00 and available sometime around -- in February of 2010. But there you have it, the Sony Handycam HDr-Xr550V. ^M00:00:55 [ Music ]
