Sony has released a hi-def video camera, claiming that it is the smallest and lightest on the planet. Available in Japan later this month, the HDR-TG1 measures 1.3 x 4.7 x 2.5-inches and weighs a mere 10.6 oz. With storage of 55 minutes, the camcorder has a 2.7-inch touch LCD and resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. The cam comes with a start-up 4GB Pro Duo Mark2 media card.
