I have a hefty Canon 7D with battery pack and a Canon 24-70mm f2.8L that’s totally heavy without a speedlight, so when I stumble upon this claimed world’s smallest camera –in terms of size and being almost weightless I have to shake my head. Hammacher Schlemmer‘s world’s smallest camera boasts dimensions 1 1/8″ L x 1″ W x 1 1/16″ and weighing half an ounce but ultimately capable of taking pictures at a 2MP resolution (1600 x 1200), and video at 30 fps and 640 x 480. The tiny camera also features a 2 GB microSD card but supports up to 32 GB.
Hammacher Schlemmer’s world’s smallest camera:
This is the world’s smallest digital camera, measuring just over one inch in all dimensions and weighing only half an ounce. Reminiscent of devices employed by Cold War-era operatives for intelligence gathering, the camera appears to require Lilliputian agility, yet its one-button operation provides easy picture taking. Providing automatic focus, it uses a 2 MP image sensor that takes still images at 1600 x 1200 resolution and captures video at 30 fps at 640 x 480 resolution. Images are taken as JPEGs and videos as AVIs, both saved onto an included 2 GB microSD card (supports up to 32 GB cards). Images and video can be viewed when connecting it to a computer running Windows 7, XP, or Vista using the included USB 2.0 cable. Rechargeable battery provides up to 30 minutes of operation from a one-hour charge via USB. Includes wrist lanyard. 1 1/8″ L x 1″ W x 1 1/16″ D. (1/2 oz.)
