I’ve always been intrigued by Sony’s Smile Shutter technology which takes the picture when you smile, without ever having to press a button. “The Party-shot camera accessory uses the camera’s BIONZ image processor with its Face Detection and Smile Shutter features to take photos without the user needing to snap the shutter button. This device makes it easy to capture more natural expressions and fun, candid moments of you, your family and friends without having to hire a photographer.”
It’s a dock that pans 360 degrees and tilts 24 degrees, automatically detects faces, adjusts composition and takes photos for you. What more could you ask for?
Pre-orders will begin on August 6, 2009, at www.sonystyle.com/retail and at selected retailers nationwide. The Party-shot camera accessory will be available for about $150 in September at Sony Style retail stores and authorized dealers.
