How about a camera you can carry – so small you can easily hide it in the palm of your hand? Thanko’s micro camera might appeal a certain British secret agent.
The new MAME-CAM DX is a micro HD camera. It has a sensor with 8 MegaPixels and can record HD (1280 X 960) videos at 30 frames per second, and only weighs a measly 14 grams. Through some sort of miniaturization miracle, Thanko was able to place inside the camera a microSD and a USB 2.0 port. You can even use it as a dedicated voice recorder.
As for the price, the MAME-CAM DX will set you back around $100 and you can find more info about it on the Thanko website.
