Sony introduced a Party-shot (paRty, not paNty, ya perverts ;-) cradle that pans 360 degrees, tilts 24 degrees, automatically detects faces (if not fully covered in latex), adjusts composition and takes photos for you.
nrty-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 with his or her tightly lashed hands and “mittenned” fingers. This device makes it easy to candid moments of you pulling the cinch rope, your family and friends inadvertently appearing in your playground without having to hire an understanding and reliable photographer (OTOH, you can use the photographer as a safety person ;-).
Compatible with the DSC-WX1 and DSC-TX1 Cyber-shot® digital cameras, the Party-shot camera accessory is mountable on nearly any tripod, so you can set it up in a convenient location in your home, garage or woods. With two AA batteries, the Party-shot camera accessory captures photos for up to 11 hours (WOW! ELEVEN hours in self-bondage!!) and is portable, so you can enjoy taking pictures outdoors (wink-wink, nudge-nudge). You can also use an AC adapter.
The Party-shot camera accessory will be available for about $150 in September at Sony Style® retail stores and at authorized dealers.
