Sony introduces a stylish and compact digital video camcorder optimized for web video publishing on Youtube and other video services.
The Sony Net-sharing CAM GC1 features web-ready MPEG-4 recording format with selectable picture qualities ranging from QVGA/15 frames per second to VGA/30 frames per second, 5MP still photo resolution, built-in flash, 4x digital zoom and a 2.4-inch color LCD screen.
You can record about 5 hours of web-ready video footage on a 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo media card, when recording with the default settings.With the sharemark button you can easily tag or select video and photos you want to upload with the integrated Picture Motion Browser (PMB) Portable software. The PMB software has pre-programmed menu buttons for direct publishing to web sharing sites, such as Crackle and Youtube.
Sony did not integrate Wi-Fi into the GC1. You have to connect the camcorder to a PC via USB to upload video to the net. This makes the GC1 a lot less attractive. For real cool and streamlined Youtube video reporting, the new Samsung Youtube phone is a way better solution.
The weight of the Sony GC1 is just about 5 ounces. Measurements of the Youtube cam are 1 3/16-inches wide by 4 1/8-inches tall by 2 1/4-inches deep).
The Sony Net-sharing CAM GC 1will be available in September for about $200.
