This camera is going to be pretty BAD. Easily take a photo of yourself right now, connect to your school/home/starbucks/neighbor’s Wi-Fi and upload your photo to your Myspace, Facebook, or even take videos and upload them onto Youtube! All this will be coming to your hands for just about $500 so look out piggy bank!
This bad boy will come with AT&T WiFi access to Sony’s Easy upload Home page until January 31st of 2012. It will include access at thousands of AT&T hotspots across the U.S…so that means most Starbucks, check! The Camera will have built in Wireless so that means without connecting to your PC with USB, you can upload your photos onto the internet through the camera. In addition to that, you get to share to sites like Shutterfly, Picasa, Photobucket, Dailymotion and Youtube….
Through the Sony Easy Upload Home Page, you can send e-mail notifications from the sharing Web sites to let friends and family know that you have posted new images and videos for viewing. This is perfect for sharing with loved ones that were not with you when you took the pictures or shot the videos.
When friends and family are nearby, you can use the camera to access photos you may have already uploaded to sharing sites and display them on its high resolution 3.5-inch LCD screen.
The camera supports DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) guidelines. By connecting to such DLNA-compatible devices as Sony BRAVIA® televisions via access points, photos in the camera can be played back with high-definition quality. In addition to BRAVIA TVs, the camera can connect to other DLNA-compatible devices, such as Sony VAIO® PCs. [Gizmodo]
Back to the real reasons why you would buy this product, its a 10-Mega camera, includes 4x zoom Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar lens (I love the Carl Zeiss lens). It also has Face Detection technology that detects faces in a scene and adjusts auto focus (AF), auto exposure (AE), flash and white balance accordingly (supposedly this distinguishes between kids and adults!). The camera also has features to help make closed-eye photos a thing of the past…it automatically takes two shots and then determines whether you closed your eyes and records the open eyed image. Anyway, too much talking check out the gallery:
