Chobi Cam One Toy DSLR: Big Price for Small Size

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  January 21, 2011

We’ve seen our fair share of hidden cameras, but this is one camera that seems to hide in plain sight. The Chobi Cam One camera is so small, you’ll hardly believe that it actually takes pictures and videos too.

Measuring about 1 in. x 1 in. x 1 in., the camera shoots pictures with a 1600 x 1200 resolution, and shoots videos up to 30 fps at 640 x 480. It also supports microSD and microSDHC cards up to 32GB and can transfer data via USB.

What’s more, the lenses you saw in the first picture are actually functional – there’s a telephoto lens and a fish-eye lens sold separately. The Chobi Cam One is currently available in Japan only. JTT is selling it for ¥9,800 (appx. $118 USD), while the lenses can cost up to $60 each. Pretty expensive for a crappy camera. It’s really tiny though.
