Sony Handycam HDR-CX105E


Check out the Sony HDR-CX105E if you want a portable camcorder that shoots high quality HD video.

The Sony HDR-CX105E doesn't have the gobsmacking excitement of the HDR-TG3. It's not quite so small and although light, its form factor will mean it doesn't slip so easily into the pocket, unless you're wearing Barbour. But it does offer even better...

Full HD (1080i) Flash memory camcorder with 8GB of storage and a Memory Stick Duo slot. The 10x Carl Zeiss lens is optically stabilised and a zoom mic records sounds in stereo. It measures 107x60x55mm and weighs around 300g with a battery. The good...

Small is beautiful when it comes to ladies’ bathing costumes and gadgets, and the CX105’s impressive vital statistics are sure to sweep the awards in any technological swimsuit contest. But remember high maintenance honeys rarely come cheap... Sony...
