Well, OK, I don't actually have one, but I wouldn't mind if I did. Take a look at this CNN.com story about Kyocera's new digital camera. It measures 3.74 x 2.64 x 1.5 inches and weighs less than half a pound. Even better, it's in the 3 megapixel club with a top resolution of 2048 by 1536. Cool.
Despite its tiny size, the thing supports IBM's Microdrives; good thing, too, since uncompressed TIFFs at the highest resolution weigh in at around 9.5 MB each. It even has a video mode. Yeah, I know, so does every other digicam, but this one actually sounds useful; 15 frames per second for 15 seconds at 320 by 240.
All this can be yours for the low low price of $735. You just have to (A) wait about a month and (B) fly to Japan to get one. No word on when it'll be released here. If you're in Japan and have an extra $735 burning a hole in your pocket, feel free to buy one and send it to me. I'll be your friend or something.
