We aren’t entirely convinced why anyone would want to buy one but for lottery winners everywhere the world’s smallest, and quite possibly most expensive, digital camera has gone on sale in the US. Just 69.1×16.8×24mm Sony’s Qualia 016 nevertheless can take two mega pixel images, features a 4x digital zoom and stores images on Memory Stick Duo card.
The camera is accompanied by a range of accessories including a snap-On flash that is almost the same size as the camera itself. To ensure images are steady and counteract the movement of the hand the 016 takes up to 4 pictures in very rapid succession and then combines them into one image. The Qualia is available for $3,980.00. from here. No news yet on a UK launch
