Sony's YouTube-friendly NSC-GC1 pocket camcorder
Some people don’t want the full high-def, all-singing, all-dancing £1,000+ camcorder, they just want to be able to capture friends doing something stupid to stick up on YouTube. And one device to do that is the Sony NSC-GC1.
It’s a net-sharing camcorder, offering quality from QVGA at 15 frames per second to VGA at 30 frames per second, recorded to Sony’s Memory Stick Dup storage (a 2GB card offers up to five hours filming) and with on-board software to make uploading easy. Additionally, if you want still images, it offers five megapixel shots with flash and 4x digital zoom.
There’s also a 2.4-inch screen and a rechargeable battery offering 90 minutes of shooting per charge. It’s expected in the US in September for $200, European price and shelf date still to be confirmed.
