CES 2009: Upload photos straight from Sony's new camera

Get on the web from your computer. From your phone. From your car. And now, thanks to Sony, from your camera. They’ve launched the first camera with a web browser, which will allow you to upload your photos straight to your favourite photo sharing site, in the style previously only covered by the Eye-Fi card. You have to go via Sony’s own photo sharing site, but they promise that this only makes the process easier.

The camera itself packs 10 megapixels, as well as a not-to-be-sniffed-at 4GB of internal memory. Being Sony, you’re also bound to see Smile Shutter, Scene Selection and the like.

And now the bad news – there currently aren’t any plans to bring this to the UK, which is somewhat disappointing. It seems we’re still destined to be tethered to card readers and USB wires.
