The Muvi Micro Camcorder is small enough to carry with you everywhere to ensure you’re always ready to capture those unexpected video capture-worthy moments. Measuring just 5.5 x 2 x 2 cm and weighing 50 grams the Muvi is small and light enough to hang around your neck ready to capture VGA (640 x 480) quality video, which is stored on a Micro SD card.
The diminutive camera claims the title of "world’s smallest camcorder", and being so small there’s not a lot of room for button controls so one record button does the lot.
There’s also a VOX mode that lets users start/stop recording using their voice. The unit is charged via USB and uploaded movies, which are recorded in AVI format, can be fiddled with using the included software.
The Muvi features an aluminum casing and the built-in rechargeable Li-ion battery provides up to two hours of recording on a single charge.
It comes with a 2GB Micro SD card, but the unit is compatible with cards up to 8GB.
It can be used as a webcam, but for the more active among us there is an optional Extreme Sports Pack, which includes a mounting bracket for a bike/helmet, a magnetic wall mounting bracket, a head/helmet strap and a silicon protective sleeve.
The Muvi Micro Camcorder is available through Firebox.com for UKP£79.95 (approx. USD$128 at time of publication), while the optional Extreme Sports Pack goes for UKP£19.95 (approx. USD$32).
