Sony Announces Party-Shot Automatic Photo Dock

Sony Party-Shot Automatic Photo Dock

The Sony Party-shot accessory takes photos automatically by detecting people’s faces and their smiles. Heard of face detection and smile detection? That’s what’s being utilized here; the camera’s BIONZ image processor detects those and communicates it to the Party-shot, which in turn triggers the shutter. Each time the camera detects smiling faces, it takes a picture. The user just leaves it in one spot and it takes photos without a person having to press the shutter button. It searches and tilts to follow subjects and take photos.

But first, you have to have a camera mounted on the device, a camera dock, really. The Party-shot is compatible with the recently announced Sony DSC-WX1 and DSC-TX1 Cyber-shot digital cameras.

Sony says the Party-shot makes it easy to capture more natural expressions and fun, candid moments of you, your family and friends without having to hire a photographer.

The Party-shot device will be available in September for $150. Pre-orders are now being accepted at Sony Style retail stores.
