The CyberShot DSC-KW1 perfume-bottle camera.

http://www.gizmag.com/sony-kw1-perfume-selfie/33484/

"The newly announced Sony KW1 is about as quirky as cameras get. Not only is the selfie-centric shooter designed to look like a perfume bottle, but it also comes loaded with features to make its users look more attractive in their photographs. There's also a 180 degree rotating lens and built-in Wi-Fi for the instant sharing of those digitally enhanced selfies."

"In terms of specifications, the KW1 features a 19.2-megapixel sensor and a 21-mm equivalent F2 lens, which can rotate 180 degrees depending on whether you're using it as a traditional camera or to shoot a selfie. Wi-Fi and NFC are on hand for instant sharing and remote control with compatible smartphones, while on the rear (or front depending on how you are using it) there's a 3.3-inch OLED touchscreen"

"The CyberShot DSC-KW1 is probably best seen as Sony's response to the Casio EX-TR35, a decidedly mediocre camera which has found a surprising level of demand among the well-heeled selfie-loving crowd in Asia."

It is unknown whether this camera has video or panorama modes.

Call this progress?
