Social networking is all the rage with Sony’s new stylish cameras that make it easy to capture and upload MP4 video and still photos directly to the Web. The Sony MHS-CM1 and MHS-PM1 Webbie HD cameras capture daily events in high definition video (1440x1080/30p) and 5 megapixel still photos. Embedded software makes it possible to quickly upload content online in a few simple clicks. Two portable designs in three stylish colors - eggplant, orange and silver - reflect your personal style while capturing every wish-you-were-here moment.
