Minox, a camera manufacturer famous for its miniaturized digital cameras, has just unveiled the Retro DCC 14.0. This new micro camera is designed on a scale of 1:3 and is small enough to hide in the palm of your hand.
The DCC 14.0 features a 14MP CMOS image sensor and when combined with the fixed 7.4mm lens, the camera has an effective focal length of around 45mm, which is slightly wider than a human's natural vision. The lens features an f-stop of 2.0, which will means the camera should perform well in low light situations.
The camera features no manual settings and is fixed to a fully automatic mode. Images are compressed into the JPEG format with video being encoded as AVI files at a resolution of 640x480. The camera is capable of about 4X zoom and has a close focusing distance of 50cm. Available in silver and black, the Minox DCC 14.0 will retail for $240.
