1-inch camera shoots 2 megapixels and is smaller than the charger

Japan Trust Technology’s new Chobi Cam One camera may not sound like much if you’re looking at its 2 Megapixel resolution, or 30 fps non-HD video capture. But this truly is a remarkable (albeit ridiculous) DSLR-style camera. At roughly one inch tall, one inch wide and one inch deep, it may just be the smallest commercially-available camera with swappable lenses.

That’s right. On top of the $120 you pay for the camera itself, you can add on a 0/5x wide-angle or 2x teleconverter lens for $30, or a fisheye lens for $60.

The tiny, screen-less One records onto a MicroSD card, with support up to 32GB. It’s already available in Japan for ¥9,800, so for the time being, you’ll have to order from a .jp website if you want one.
