CES 2009: The world’s first web-browsing camera

0 Comments »

Sony CEO Sir Howard Stringer mentioned it in his keynote, but I thought this deserved its own post.

The Sony Cybershot DSC-G3 is the world’s first Wi-Fi-enabled digital camera that can upload photos and videos via a built-in Web browser.

The intention is to help people share those photos and video clips as soon as you shoot. With Wi-Fi, all you need is a hotspot - no cord necessary.

The model comes with complimentary AT&T Wi-Fi access to Sony’s Easy Upload Home Page until Jan. 31, 2012. That includes Wi-Fi access at any AT&T hotspot. Pressing the WLAN button on the camera to upload and it will launch the browser.

Sony says:

"After connecting to the Internet via wireless access points, the camera automatically navigates to the Sony Easy Upload Home Page, which includes direct links to photo sharing sites like Shutterfly™ and Picasa™ Web Albums; video sharing sites like YouTube™ and Dailymotion™; and a photo and video sharing site, such as Photobucket™. Also, the DSC-G3 camera allows you to access other sharing sites for uploading photos and videos through its Web browser."

The camera has a 3.5-inch LCD screen and supports Digital Living Network Alliance guidelines (read: Sony BRAVIA TVs, VAIO PCs).

It’s a 10-megapixel camera that’s about three-fourths of an inch thin. It has a 4X optical zoom Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens, Intelligent Scene Recognition, Face Detection tech, anti-blink functionality, Smile Shutter tech, a Dynamic Range Optimizer that determines the best exposure and contrast settings in a shooting environment, and Optical SteadyShot image stabilization. It has 4GB of internal memory and the LCD screen is touchscreen.

The Cybershot G3 camera is available now in black for about $500 at Sony’s site.
