Hammacher Sells Keychain Camera

keychain cameraBy David Ponce

It’s interesting to think that we’ve reached an age where we very well might be stuffing some stockings with 3MP digital cameras; 3MP digital cameras which then will most likely dangle from a keychain. Yeah, that’s right: everyone’s favorite store, Hammacher Schlemmer is selling a keychain camera that takes pictures of 2560 x 2048 resolution in still mode, does 320 x 240 video and even triples as a 640 x 480 webcam. It comes with a slide out LCD of unspecified size, though the entire unit is impossibly small at 1.5″ H x 2.5″ W x 0.75″ D., which does indeed make it a good keychain candidate. On-board memory is a paltry 8MB, so you’re going to want to boost that up with an SD card. Transferring of data is then done via USB.

It’s $70, and should be shipping by the end of the week.

    Is that the hand of a midget? I compared my hand to it and either the image is shrunken or my hand is simply enormous. Go to the HS website and view a large image of the hand. I swear they used a too-small hand to make the camera appear smaller.

    nothing in the ad says that it has an lcd viewfinder. It says that it has a viewfinder… and and easy-to-read lcd. To me, that means an optical viewfinder and a tiny lcd readout of number of shots, battery status, etc.

    wouldn’t a “too-small hand” cause the camera to look larger????
