Photography has always been one of those art forms that truly astonishes me. It can produce some truly beautiful images that capture a solitary moment of fun, sadness or passion, ready to be shared to friends or printed on glossy paper. A camera in the hands of someone who knows how to use it is a powerful tool indeed. Unless, that is, the camera is handled by someone whom is, themselves, a powerful tool. My name’s Troy and I’m to photography as Lara Bingle is to Australian TV.

Pretty soon we'll find ourselves paying for 14 different 3G data contracts across all our various gadgets and appliances. Before that happens though, we might see a Sony CyberShot camera with built-in 3G that allows for limited free uploads, according to gdgt's sources. Supposedly users would be able to spring for more data if needed.
Look at this pleasant tableau: two square-jawed gentlemen and one of their attractive lady friends enjoying a brand new Sony point-and-shoot. And so beautifully photographed! (By a Canon 5D Mark II.)
Sony's other new camera is the H55, which goes for the "stuffing a fat zoom lens into a tiny body" party trick (like Nikon's S8000). It's a 10x zoom, starting at a 25mm wide-angle. (I'm curious to see what kind of lens distortion we might get here, if any.)
Sony introduced a whopping 17 new cameras and camcorders today, in the Handycam and Cyber-shot lines, and as was hinted, they support SD and microSD cards. Even better, the new TransferJet lets you share photos between cameras, wirelessly.
So here's what you're supposed to do: Nestle your Cybershot point-and-shoot atop the Party Shot motorised monopod, set a few parameters, and party hard. In theory, when you wake up, you'll have a memory card full of semi-candid, Facebook-ready pictures.
