World’s smallest camera

It may look barely big enough to cover a picture-taking fingertip and it’s so small you could lose it in a snap.


But the makers of this microscopic device clearly believe good things come in tiny packages, after inventing the world’s smallest commercially-available camera.

The miniature one inch-squared camera can amazingly take two megapixel images and can even shoot video.

Its makers in New York insist the 28-gram device works perfectly well, despite being the size of a marble and no bigger than a fingertip.

American firm Hammacher Schlemmer created the gadget, which is set to hit the shelves for $99.95 (£63.79).

Hammacher Schlemmer’s General Manager, Fred Berns, said: ‘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.

‘It is a remarkable piece of kit, and is expected to prove very popular with the public.

‘It comes with a wrist lanyard that keeps it close to hand and enables ease of portability.’

The World’s Smallest Camera, as boasted by its makers, can take JPEG images with a resolution of 1600 x 1200 and comes complete with autofocus.

The camera also connects to a computer via a USB cable, just like regular pieces of photography equipment.
