Sony has recently released their new HDR-XR500V HD camcorder. It features 1920 x 1080 HD video recording, GPS geo-tagging, and a pretty massive 120 GB hard disk drive (though not as impressive as Sony HDR-XR520V’s mammoth 240GB HDD). At the rate Sony is going, it’s not surprising that we’ll see Terabyte Handycams in the near future.

The new Sony HDR-XR500V’s geo-tagging enables you to nail down exactly where a certain video clip was taken on a global map. This feature looks enticing, and many people are jazzed about the fact that they can record anywhere and track the exact spot by using a set of coordinates. Sony also carried over the HDR-SR12’s Cam Control dial feature, loved by many users for its remarkable manual control navigation.

In addition to the Sony G lens, it also incorporates Exmor-R technology, which delivers excellent lowlight performance. What’s more, the new Sony HDR-XR500V lets you shoot 12.1 MP still images. Ancillary features include Face Detection, Smile Shutter, a built-in GPS receiver, and a stunning Optical Image Stabilization that can detect up to 8 faces at once. This camcorder is smaller than its predecessors, the HDR-SR11 and HDR-SR12. The HDR-XR500V HD costs $1,299.99.
