The PSP Camera (model PSP-300) is a digital camera peripheral by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation Portable handheld video game system. In Japan, it was released as the Chotto Shot (ちょっとショット "Quick Shot") on November 2, 2006. In Singapore, the PSP Camera released on the same year. For PAL territories, it is named the Go!Cam, and was released May 25, 2007. At CES 2008 Sony Computer Entertainment America stated that the PSP Camera and PSP GPS will be released sometime 2008.
The camera mounts atop the Sony PSP via the USB connection slot, and a screw. It is a 1.3 megapixel camera, meaning it takes photographs with a resolution of 1280 x 960 (5” x 7” printed), similar to cameras found in cellular phones. The camera is able to record video with audio. On August 22, 2007, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe announced at the 2007 Leipzig Games Convention that instant messaging software (branded Go!Messenger) (released February 29, 2008) allows the Go!Cam to be used for video conferencing and voice chat.
The Go!Cam camera does not come with a UMD but instead has an available download for it called Go!Edit. Go!Edit is a program that enables extended usage of the Go!Cam and includes features that enable pictures and videos to be edited. Go!Edit requires PSP system firmware of 3.40 or above to be used. The Go!Edit download and manual is available at: http://www.yourpsp.com/goedit/download-en_gb.html.
The PSP camera can use firmware version 3.00 or higher to take photographs or videos with English on-screen instructions. Users can do so by selecting "CAMERA" under the "PHOTO" menu. Once taken, the photo or video will then be saved to the user’s Memory Stick. Saved videos can be uploaded to the Internet from any wireless connection.
