Full Review

In most ways, the Sony HDR-TG5V ($999 MSRP) is a very minor upgrade over last year's HDR-TG1. It has the same sensor and lens, but has been outfitted with a new menu system, a redesigned LCD touchscreen, and includes 16GB of internal flash memory. Sony also changed the color scheme a bit and made the new TG5V slightly more compact than the HDR-TG1.

The HDR-TG5V is not a top-of-the-line camcorder when it comes to performance.
