The Sony Cybershot G1 looks like an ultracompact, but it's a little bigger than you might first expect (or ever want). That's because they have to cram 1.86GB (yes, gigabytes) of internal memory into this camera, not to mention a Wi-Fi adapter for wireless photo transfers. Oh, and there's a 3.5-inch LCD screen. Yes, that extra bulk is there for a reason, and it might be a good enough reason to pick up the G1. With the G1, you can even ignore buying a Memory Stick card to store your photos, as the ample internal memory can hold 600 best-quality photos at a time.
For the $600 price tag, we wish they had buffed up the actual camera specs a little. 6 megapixels, 3x optical zoom... it's pretty run-of-the-mill at this point. We're not sure that the extra use as a portable photo album is worth an extra money, especially when you can pick up an arguably better digital camera with higher specs for about half that.
