American company Hammacher Schlemmer has announced last month that the ‘World’s Smallest Camera” is now for sale at $99.95. This teeny tiny digital camera has a 2.0 mega-pixel lens and a USB port connection. Although reviews have stated that the battery life is not very long and that the World’s Smallest Camera may not actually be the world’s smallest, as there are others which are slightly a bit smaller. And there’s the teeny risk of you losing the camera behind the sofa or down a sink drain (not sure what it’s doing there in the first place, but still). But as you can see in the image below, the camera is supercute and actually crafted quite well.
Which brings me to quickly point out these cuties too, made by Japanese retailer JTT. The Chobi-Cam-One is a DSLR for a tiny Lego man, complete with removable lens. This has been measured as being slightly smaller than the above ‘World’s Smallest camera’ although it costs a little more too (around $118). There appears to be a whole market for novelty digicams like these, although I’m not sure how many of us would want to me walking around with a bag of tiny camera lens and accessories!
