At CES PMA 2012, Bruce from Minox shows me the DDC 5.1 Digital Camera. The novelty piece is more than just good looks, it actually shoots photos and video.
The DCC 5.1 Digital Camera is a miniscule (2.9 x 1.8 x 1.7″), flyweight (under 4 oz) digital camera that looks like a classic German rangefinder camera–with the optional added cachet of being 24K gold-plated.
It has a detachable shoe-mounted metal design viewfinder designed to give the look and feel of the classic tradition.
On the inside, it’s a thoroughly modern digital camera–a 5.1MP CMOS sensor, 2″ LCD display screen, 9mm (43mm equivalent) glass f/2.0 lens, and QVGA (320 x 240 pixels) video capability. It has 128MB of internal memory, accepts SD cards up to 16GB for external memory, and operates on 1 rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
This Minox DDC 5.1 comes in assorted colors and even has an optional flash.
