Digital video camera in a new form factor: as small as a passport. Features a flexible 2.5-inch LCD monitor. Developed to be even smaller than a Handycam, this model was the world's smallest and lightest when it was launched to much acclaim. For a design that was compact yet practical, the developers sought usability backed by ergonomics. Die-cast magnesium was chosen as the body material, enabling a unit that is both small and durable.
