Incredible quality and very compact,

This review is from: Sony GW55VE Waterproof Full HD Flash Memory Camcorder and Case - White (Electronics)
I do a lot of walking, many walks on long distance trails, and I like to take both still photographs and video to record the trips. I already owned a Sony camcorder, however when walking on multi-day trips with a full rucksack, it added considerably to the weight.
This camcorder is perfect. Lightweight, waterproof, rugged, and takes superb quality photos and video... At least as good as the larger camcorder, possibly better.
It comes with a waterproof semi- hard case, with options to hang round the neck or attach to a belt or rucksack strap.
Full of features, this is a sophisticated bit of kit. The only downside is that the zoom control is a little stiff, and I have a tendency to take two photos in quick succession, as the photo shutter button is also a little hard to get used to - both probably because of the waterproof nature of the controls.
All in all, highly recommended.
