It had to happen. It seems that when Sony hears of an idea, in this case a small and inexpensive still/video camera designed to upload on the Internet like Flipvideo, they develop one, too. The Net Sharing GC-1 is only 1 3/16 x 4 1/8 x 2 1/4-inches, and weighs only about 5 ounces. It takes 5-megapixel still photos and shoots video in MPEG-4 with your choice of QVGA/15 fps or VGA/ 30fps and can hold up to 5 hours of footage with a 2 GB Sony Memory Stick PRO Duo media card (for an additional $59.99.)
With a built-in flash, a 4x digital zoom, and a 2.4 inch color LCD screen, the GC-1 has around a rechargeable 90 minute battery life span and will be arriving in September for ~$200.00 in retail stores or you can preorder now at Sony Style. We suspect that other companies will also be coming out with their own versions of inexpensive cams so that everyone can become part of the YouTube Generation.
