Two megapixel mini-camera measures in at under a cubic inch, weighs under an ounce

22 Sep

Remember that one-inch Chobi Cam One spotted in Japan earlier this year? Well, its tiny self has now reappeared on US shores, ready to be lost in a sofa or coat pocket near you. Unimaginatively titled “The World’s Smallest Camera,” it’s priced at $99.95 and packs a petite, two megapixel autofocus sensor capable of recording VGA video. Resembling a Lego Man’s DSLR, storage is done on a microSD card, though you’re more likely to run out of battery juice than space — the battery will give a maximum of 30 minutes use from one hour’s charge. “The world’s smallest” are words we hear a lot at Engadget, and we’re inclined to agree with CNET that JTT’s previous camera, the Chobi Cam, is actually smaller by volume. The Chobi Cam One arrived with extra detachable lenses, but there’s no word yet on whether these add-ons will appear in Hammacher Sclemmer’s online store — not that we really want to be lugging around a whole bunch of tiny lenses with us.
