What kind of digital camera do master spies choose? We're not sure about current CIA procedure but the JB1 gets the nod from spies of the celluloid variety, having claimed the title of official James Bond 007 digital camera. Set-up for clandestine use and covert surveillance, the JB1 looks like a cigarette lighter and has the ability take shots immediately by flicking the top or to record images at preset time intervals for up to 19 days.
The JB1 holds up to 150 pictures at high-resolution (640x480 pixels) on its internal memory, records 30-second videos with sound or up to 12 minutes of audio and can act as a portable data storage drive.
A Web Camera function makes it possible to transmit live video across the Internet and for the Bond touch, you can insert your image into a "007" scene.
