Talk about weird innovations, Sony has just pulled the wraps off of its CyberShot DSC-KW1 camera that specializes in selfies while taking on the shape of a perfume bottle. It carries a rotating camera and is packed with an array of beautification features.
Sony CyberShot DSC-KW1 specs:
3.3-inch OLED display
19.2MP 180 degrees rotating camera
21mm F2.0 lens with LED flash
Colors: White, pink, purple, and green
So far that’s all that Sony revealed in terms of specs. Its features, however, somehow gets a rundown. In addition to its twisting camera that pretty much looks like a bottle cap, the KW1 has a self-timer with countdown function and a camera stand for hands-free shooting. As mentioned earlier, it’s filled with effects to enhance certain elements of the users’ face — they can enlarge their eyes, change the tone and smoothen their skin, or remove that oily look.
The CyberShot DSC-KW1 is currently exclusive to China with no news of its availability in other countries. It costs ¥5,199 (approx. Php37,000) as of its announcement which is pretty steep for budget-conscious people. We guess it costs to achieve that “perfect selfie” shot, but if your budget doesn’t allow it you can always download Camera 360 from your app store or include #nofilter on your next upload.
