Las Vegas (NV) - Sony's new DSC-G1 is the company's first Cyber-shot camera to incorporate wireless sharing technology.  The 6 megapixel camera will be available next month.

The G1 is equipped with Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) capabilities, which allows users to send pictures from the camera wirelessly to another camera or computer.

It has a 3.5" LCD screen with a 921,000 pixel resolution.  According to Sony, this is about four times more than most other Cyber-shots.  It also has a much higher internal memory than most cameras, with a built-in 2 GB capacity.  External storage is possible through Memory Stick Duo cards.

 

DLNA is supported by all of the main computer manufacturers, including IBM, Sony, HP, and Samsung.  It is also compatible with a handful of set-top digital media boxes and cell phones.

The G1 will begin shipping in April and carries a suggested retail price of $600.
