This ‘Paper’ Camera is Just 6mm Thin and Shoots Both Photos and Videos

Comment

If the only things you care about in a digital camera are novelty and thinness, then the “Paper Like a Digital Camera” is for you. It’s a retro-styled toy camera that measures just 6mm thick thanks to its barebones construction — it’s essentially a set of tiny camera components sandwiched between paper parts.

The front and back of the 6.8x2x0.6cm camera are held together by a pair of plastic nuts and screws. There’s an LED light for indicating battery level and shooting mode, an on/off button (hold 3 seconds to turn on), a mode button for toggling between photo/video/voice, a microSD card slot for storage (up to 16GB), and a USB terminal for transferring your images.

Included in the camera kit is a strap for hanging the 43g (1.5oz) camera around your neck.

Photos from the camera measure 1280×1024 (1.3 megapixels), videos are 720×480 at 30fps, and voice is recorded in MP3 format.

Here are some sample photos and a video captured with the camera (yeah, image quality isn’t something you’ll want to show off):
