Sony unveiled the new HD Camcorder HDR-TG5V with integrated GPS for automatic geotagging.
At the same time Sony announces in Europe the HDR-TG7VE. I hate when companies use different model numbers for the same product in different regions. It just plain sucks.

The features of the new highly compact HDR-TG5V include full HD recording, 16GB memory, embedded GPS, NAVTEQ digital maps geo-tag, 2.7 inch touchscreen, Smile Shutter technology, Face Detection and Carl Zeiss Vaio-Tessar lens with 10X optical zoom.
The Sony HDR-TG5V camcorder will ship in May for about $1,000. An optional travel kit (Sony ACC-TCH5) with a battery, travel charger and pouch will be available for about $100. There is also a wide angle conversion lens (Sony VCL-HGE07TB) accessory for about $100.
