Sony's Party-Shot Camera Dock Takes Photos So You Don't Have To

Sony's Party-Shot Dock Plays Photographer For You

As much as I love playing photographer at a good soiree, I feel like I end up missing some good moments with a camera in front of my face. So imagine my curiosity when I learned about the Sony Party-shot camera dock. It literally takes the photos for you. Skeptical? I was too . . . at first. Until I learned how.

I've used a digital camera that incorporates face and smile detection technology, so I can attest to its ability to capture shots when I'm not really paying attention. It's this technology that makes the Party-shot camera dock so effective. Just set up the dock with your SC-WX1 or DSC-TX1 Cyber-shot camera and let the gadget do all the work. Great for candid and natural-looking shots, the Party-shot detects smiles and faces as it swivels and tilts 360 degrees to get the best shot around. The Party-shot hits stores in September for $150, but will you be in line?
