You know how there's one friend in a group that's always the one taking pictures? They're ready for anything —a road trip, a birthday dinner, a late night bar hop—with their point-and-shoot in hand. You'll know who it is, because 90 percent of pictures tagged of you on Facebook are from the same chick. Well what happens when it's her party and she's taking the time to enjoy herself and lay off the shutter button? A memory-less soiree? We don't think so...

Sony announced that theu're releasing the Party-shot personal photographer, which will be compatible with their popular Cybershot cameras.

It's not just a dock that incessantly snaps, either. This thing is kind of smart: It pans all around 360 degrees and tils up and down 24 degrees to capture the best compositions. It then uses it's face detection and smile shutter features to know exactly when to snap the button.

You get candid, real shots of friends and family without having to enjoy the party through the viewfinder screen.

It's tripod-mountable and powered by AA batteries or a sold-separately AC adapter, so you can pop the thing anywhere to get the best shots. Expect it to be available very soon for $150.

It sounds like a great product, but we really want to see what the resulting shots look like!
