• Minox unveils its 24 karat Gold Plated Camera

    February 25, 2012 | Posted by

    Its a miniature digital camera which we would recommend if only for its cuteness factor. Of course a 24 karat gold plating doesn’t hurt either. Keep in mind though that the tiny Minox special edition camera is far from state of the art. The small size means you compromise on mega pixels (though it has more to do with keeping the price affordable rather then the size of the camera).

    Specifications include a 5.1-megapixel CMOS sensor with a 2-inch color LCD. Also present on the camera is a detachable optical viewfinder. The camera also makes possible a 4x digital zoom. If you do lots of video’s then this one is definitely not the right choice since all it does is small clips of 60 seconds at a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels.

    The best part of this camera (aside from its 24k gold plating) is the diminutive size which means dimensions of 2.9 inches by 1.8 inches by 1.7 inches and a weight of a mere 4 ounces.
