Chobi Cam One HD:
When I was kid, I was mesmerized with the stories of dwarfs, elves, fairies and tiny people like the Liliputians in Gulliver’s Travels, Thumbelina, Tinkerbelle and Snow White’s seven dwarfs.
I often thought of how small their world could be. I actually, asked my mom how small is Thumbelina’s stockings, if she’s as tiny as a thumb? Well, that’s all childish thoughts, but mind you the Chobi Cam One actually have launched the world’s smallest camera, the Chobi Cam One HD.
It seems like the world is getting smaller and smaller with this newly released tiny HD camera.
Apparently, this is known as the worldwide micro replica of a DSLR. It is now improved with changeable lenses and enhanced with better sensor and resolution.
The image quality is great with the magnetic conversion lens, wide angle and telephoto. Although it can take an HD Video with 1280x 720 resolution at 30 fps (frames per second), we can’t see the object we want to take for it lacks the viewfinder, due to its very tiny size.
However, the camera is very ideal in discreet capturing and taking images from those close small areas where a normal sized camera can’t capture.
On the other hand, this Chobi Cam One HD camera specifically measures 3.4 x 2.8 x 3.1 cm with a weight of 18 grams.
Its memory is expandable up to 32GB with its microSDHC cards. It supports the JPEG and AVI formats for pictures and videos. It has a battery life of about 25 minutes recording with 1-hour charging time. This also runs in Windows 7, Vista, XP, Mac OS X 10.4. This device is available at $184.76 with a one month warranty.
I commend the Japanese geeks for making my childhood fantasies come true. This tiniest camera is so cool. I hope they can make a way for a viewfinder next time.
