As if the announcement of the CyberShot DSC-WX1 and DSC-TX1 wasn’t enough for Sony today, they went and announced an interesting accessory for both aforementioned models with the Sony Party-shot. The Party-shot is a dock for only those two models of digital cameras, and is designed to pan 360 degrees, and can tilt at up to a 24-degree angle for all sorts of random shots at your next par-tay. It features face detection, and can adjust composition on those embarrassing, and possibly incriminating, photos on the fly. It can run for up to 11 hours, and is powered by 2 AA batteries. The Party-shot will be available in September for a price of $150.
