Sony to Launch Camcorders with Built In GPS/Maps

Sony is launching what I think is the first camcorder with a built in GPS chip and mapset (NAVTEQ) - no it isn't supposed to navigate you to the photoshoot! The full line of camcorders (Sony HDR-XR520V, HDR-XR500V, HDR-XR200V) offer full HD vieo and a 12-megapixel still shot capability for the HDR-XR520V and XR550V, with a 4 MP capability on the XR200V.

Major differences:

  • HDR-XR520V - 12 MP still shot, with a 240 GB hard drive; list $1,500
  • HDR-XR500V - 12 MP Still shot with a 120 GB hard drive; list $1,300
  • HDR-XR200V - 4 MP Still shot with a 120GB hard drive; list $1,000

Photos can obviously be geotagged, and you can browse through the map for finding locaitons of those shots. Expect these to hit the market in late Q1 2009.
