A New York firm has developed the world’s smallest commercially-available camera that is around the size of a fingertip, but can take two megapixel images and can even shoot video.
Hammacher Schlememr insists that the 28-gram, one inch-squared device works perfectly well, despite being the size of a marble.
The gadget is set to hit the shelves for 100 dollars.
“Although The World’s Smallest Camera is only slightly larger than a marble, it takes still images and records video just like much larger cameras,” the Daily Mail quoted Schlemmer’s General Manager Fred Berns, as saying.
“It comes with a wrist lanyard that keeps it close to hand and enables ease of portability,” he added.
The camera can reportedly take JPEG images with a resolution of 1600×1200 and comes complete with autofocus.
Just like regular pieces of photography equipment, this camera also connects to a computer via a USB cable.
