Press release   •   Sep 02, 2009 17:30 CEST

The stylish MHS-PM1 Mobile HD Snap Camera from Sony makes it easy to capture and upload high quality videos quickly to the web. The PM1 captures life’s moments in 1080/30p High Definition MP4 video (1440x1080/30p) and features CMOS Sensor technology to produce crisp 5-megapixel still photos. Embedded PMB Portable view-and-share software makes it possible to quickly check and directly upload content in a few simple clicks on Windows/Mac OS*1.
The compact, lightweight camera fits naturally in the palm and can be taken virtually anywhere. A 270 degree rotating swivel lens, with 4x digital zoom, flips over so you can see yourself while shooting video and taking photos.

Five scene selection modes – sports, landscape, low light, and backlight – help you capture the best picture possible in any situation, and dedicated record and photo capture buttons means that there is no need to switch between modes. Images are recorded directly to Memory Stick PRO Duo™ media (optional).

After shooting, you can mark your favourite photo or videos by using the Sharemark button to pre-select for web upload. By just connecting the camera to your computer via the supplied USB cable, the inbuilt PMB Portable software quickly transfers content to video and photosharing websites (compatible with both Windows/Mac OS*1). It includes direct upload to Picasa™ Web Albums photo sharing site, YouTube™ and Dailymotion™ video sharing sites. You can also simply drag and drop video and still images files to your personal computer folders.

The PM1 will be sold at Sony Style retail stores, online at www.sonystyle.com and through authorised European dealers.
