Cameras are getting smaller by the day. The latest to have triggered that statement isn’t a stand alone camera. Meet Fuuvi, a colourful flash drive-cum-camera that has been raising a lot of eyebrows of late.
Colorful, but all that good?
To look at, Fuuvi may just be a little more colorful than a regular flash drive but what’s more intriguing about this little tech is the tiny lens bobbing out of the flash drive’s upper surface. Here’s a quick look at what you can expect out of this small package
- Image type: JPEG/AVI Still resolution: 1280 × 1024
- Video Resolution: 720 × 480/30fps
- Number of pixels: 2 mega pixel Lens 200: F2.8 f = 3.2mm • ISO: 100
- Power: Built-in lithium-ion battery (charging when plugged into the computer)
- Recording Media: Micro SD (up to 16GB supported)
- Size: 35 × 70 × 15mm / Weight: 24g
- Interface: USB2.0/1.1
However, the camera we’re talking about it is a very basic 3.1 megapixel camera, with no view finder, which means you’re solely relying on your photography skills to get the desired shot. It doesn’t come with a memory card, but accommodates a Micro SD with up to 16 GB of memory support.
Yet another painful limitation is the pricing of the Fuuvi; at $59.99 it seems to be a little over our expectations, since a cell phone priced lower than Fuuvi could assure better picture quality.
