Gadget Pr0n: Sony Net-Sharing Cam GC1

Alright, put that Hi8 camcorder away, stop listening to those cassette tapes and for the love of Blu-ray, hide that Betamax player!

There’s no reason to hang on to technology from the 80’s (or the 90’s for that matter). We understand, years ago, before AOTS, there was no way you could know that laser discs weren’t going to make a comeback.

Now, there are people here to help you sort that kind of stuff out. Please, accept their help. You don’t want your friends and family to perform a gadget intervention, do you?

Today, we'll review the Sony Net-Sharing Cam GC1.

Sony Net-Sharing Cam GC1

  • Polished form factor
  • 2.4” LCD Screen
  • Simple point and shoot for pics or video
  • Not much bigger than a phone and fits in a pocket
  • Not intuitive
  • Thumb joystick and buttons are hard to press
  • Holding it is awkward if you’re trying to use the flash because you’re finger blocks it
  • Video quality is good enough to put on YouTube, but barely
  • The highest resolution is 640
  • The audio is very sensitive and overloads easily
  • Digital zoom is only 4x and incredibly jerky
  • No optical zoom
  • You can use a computer to stream live video over the internet via USB
  • It feels sort of flimsy, like it could have been designed smaller
  • It costs $200
  • You have to spend more money on a memory stick, because there is no built-in memory
  • You could buy a comparable digital still camera with video and higher megapixel stills for a little more
