This tiny 'DSLR' won't replace your Canon 5D


We love our DSLR, but sometimes it feels like too much to carry around with us all day every day. So when we heard a pocket-sized DSLR had gone on sale we were pretty impressed.

However, our enthusiasm was short-lived when we realised the diminutive Chobio CamOne wasn't exactly going to replace our Canon 5D… but it's still worth a more detailed look.

The keyring-sized little plastic shooter measures 2.5cm x 2.5cm x 2.6cm and weights just 12g. It takes images at a resolution of 1600x1200 pixels and video at 640x480.

Files are stored on a microSD memory card and there's even a miniUSB port for transferring footage to your computer.

Multiple lenses can be fitted (via a magnet) for different shooting styles and include a X0.5 and X2 options. Though given the kit is selling for £117 online, I think we will pass.
