Tiny Camera Takes Big Pictures

Undoubtedly the camera of Derek Zoolander, the 'Mame-Cam DX' is a tiny multipurpose digital camera that fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. Created by Tokyo's Thanko, the Mame-Cam DX weighs as little as 14 grams and measures in at a tiny 1.8 x 1.1 x 0.4 inches. (That's 45 x 29 x 10 mm)

There are plenty of tiny cameras out there but the amazing thing about the Mame-Cam DX is that it takes massive 8-megapixel jpeg photos of up to 3264 x 2448 pixels. In addition, this tiny camera can pump out 30fps HD-video with a resolution of up to 1280 x 960p and can also be used as a voice recorder.

The camera uses a microSD/SDHC memory card and connects to your computer via USB 2.0. If you're interested in getting your hands on one of these tiny cameras, they are currently on sale for around 99 USD.
