This tiny camera may fit in the palm of your hand, but it looks like a little DSLR, and claims to shoot images at 12 megapixel resolution. Loosely translated the name of this digital camera is the “Kun” One-Eye. While it’s certainly bigger than the Chobi Cam One HD, the diminutive camera still measures just over 2-inches wide, and weighs just over 5 ounces, which means you’re less likely to lose it between the sofa cushions, I suppose.

According to its specs, the “One Eye” can capture high quality still images, as well as HD video – albeit only at 720p/30fps resolution, but a few years ago that would have been good enough to satisfy most of us. Of course with a lens this small, there’s no optical zoom, just a 4x digital mode. On the back of the camera is a tiny 1.5″ TFT viewfinder with 480×240 resolution you can use for framing shots. Images are stored on a microSD card (up to 64GB).

In addition to working as a pocket-sized point-and-shoot, the camera can be used as one of those vehicle recorder cameras, and even comes with a suction cup mounting bracket and cigarette socket adapter for your car. It’s also got a motion-detection mode which will trigger only when someone passes in front of its tiny lens.

The Kun “One Eye” pocket camera is available from Japanese gadget shop Thanko, and sells for ¥9,980 (~$120 USD).
