Click a Cool Selfie with this Sony Cyber-shot DSC-KW1 Perfume Bottle Cam

August 27, 2014, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

A glimpse at the new product from Sony could make you stand bewildered. It sports the looks of a perfume bottle, but we know the multinational electronic brand may not have thought of switching over to cosmetics as yet.

The new perfume bottle look alike is a handy camera for the masses, actually  a charmer that can floor any selfie addict.

Sony has confirmed recent leaks that spoke much about the perfume bottle look alike camera and has officially unveiled the device, christened DSC-KW1. The new camera that falls under the Cyber-shot series will be released exclusively within the mainland of China, probably that’s where Sony might have found the selfie fanatics and perfume fiends in masses.

The KW1 features a 19.2 megapixel camera with a 21mm F 2.0 lens. The 180-degree spin of the lens can prove to be the hall mark. Swivel the lens facing you for self portraits or swivel it back for any normal photographs.

Either way, you could hold on to the KW1 in the portrait orientation, like that you do with the smartphones. It might sound weird to many, but that’s one way Sony has decided to throw away the conventional ideas.

The 3.3-inch LCD touch display takes up major space in the front, apart from the swiveling lens portion. KW1 also offers connectivity to smartphones and other devices by means of the built-in Wi-Fi and NFC technology.

The LED flash on the back is surrounded by Swarovski crystals on either side. That does add sense, considering the target audience.

The in-built features that the camera provides are alluring, to say the least.

The various face correction features that get packed inside include tone correction, skin smoothening, eye enlargement and other properties. Who would want to skip such features while clicking selfies to be posted on to social media?

The KW1 would be made available in four colors: white, pink, purple and green.

Sales are expected to commence next month with the KW1 priced around $845. Do you want one?
