After spotting this designer cam over in Japan we've been banging on at Sony for weeks to let us know when it’ll be arriving here, but suddenly it's turned up unannounced.Tech house, PurelyGadgets, is the place. It's got its mitts on a batch of the svelte YouTube shooters before anyone else.It's not exactly HD but the pocket masterpiece should be perfect for capturing all those, er, magical drunken moments for you to share with the world online. It shoots MPEG-4 format to Memory Stick PRO Duo cards and it'll also do 5MP snaps if you forget your camera.SteadyShot is on board to handle any wobble and it gets a 2.4in swivel screen for framing your victim. Once snared, a quick press of the 'sharemark' button tags it for automatic upload to your favourite video-sharing site the next time the cam’s hooked up to a PC.With 30fps, 640x480 resolution and no optical zoom, your sis won't thank you for shooting her wedding on it, but for YouTube tomfoolery – or Youbery, as we like to call it – it's just dandy.EssentialsSony NSC-GC1 Net Sharing CamcorderPrice: £175On sale: TBAContact: PurelyGadgetsRelated stories:New Casio Exilims shoot straight to YouTubeSamsung SGH-L760 gets in bed with YouTubeLG uploads the YouTube phone
