Sony introduced what it calls the world's first WiFi-enabled digital camera that uses a built-in Web browser to upload photos and videos to Web sites.
The DSC-G3 camera can wirelessly connect to any public hotspot, including hotels, restaurants, coffee shops and airports much like a computer. The camera comes with complimentary AT&T WiFi access to Sony's Easy Upload Home Page until Jan. 31, 2012.
By pressing the WLAN button on the camera, users can open its embedded Web browser. After connecting to the Internet via wireless access points, the camera automatically navigates to the Sony Easy Upload Home Page, which includes direct links to photo sharing sites like Shutterfly and Picasa Web Albums; video sharing sites like YouTube and Dailymotion; and a photo and video sharing site, such as Photobucket. Also, the DSC-G3 camera allows users to access other sharing sites for uploading photos and videos through its Web browser.
