Simtec USB and Advantage Six to the rescueSTD, sorry, Advantage Six has announced the availability of tiny unbranded USB cameras that are compatible with RISC OS and the Simtec USB solution. The cameras are less than 10 cm long (that's less than 4 inches), feature a 2.1MegaPixel sensor, and are capable of storing an average of 41 pictures at 1600x1200 or 87 pictures at 1024x768.
Each camera also a features tiny flatscreen for previewing shots and managing the camera itself. Avantage Six admits that the cameras aren't for high end photographers, who should really go for something more suitably expensive and able. Instead, the mininature cameras fit in with A6's other mini-gadget range like their USB MP3 player.
Contact STD for more info, or check their website when the product section updates.
