Japan camera-maker Cerevo has started a 24-hour live Ustream feed from Akihabara, in cooperation with a company in the area, Aisan Electronic. Recently Cerevo has been capitalizing on the growing popularity of Ustream live-streaming in Japan since Softbank's investment in the web service. By creating their 'networked camera', the Cerevo Camera Live, which is especially tailored for live-streaming, the company rides the coattails of a public increasingly interested in broadcasting on the web.

Released back in May, the Cerevo Camera Live can be purchased for 19,999 yen (or about US$230), while the Ustream kit with pocket Wi-Fi, a wide conversion lens, a 4GB microSD card, and a tripod is available for 21,999 yen (US$254). Available only in Japan for now, the camera comes in both black and white colors, and can be purchased via the company's online store or Rakuten and Amazon online shops.

Other camera specs:
  • Streaming video is in CIF format, 352 x 288 resolution
  • Supports HD video, 1,280 x 720 resolution
  • Wi-Fi 802.11n (b/g/n)
  • 2.4-inch LCD display
  • 9MP CMOS sensor
  • MicroSD card slot
  • USB port

Wow...that's *VERY* expensive! Especially when you can get the Ricoh Wifi cam for about the same price as both of these two items together! And don't forget that you can get a WiFi SD card that will turn almost *ANY* digital camera into a WiFi camera!
