Currently, most phones in the smartphone market come with large displays, but still, there are some manufacturers who are making and launching compact smartphones. However, the same cannot be said for DSLR cameras. In the past few years, there have been several improvements in camera technology, but there hasn’t been much difference in body size. Now, a Japanese startup has created a DSLR camera that the company claims to be the smallest and lightest camera in the world. Its name is MiniCa, which has been introduced under crowdfunding for now. The weight of this camera is only 17 grams, but it still has a digital display.
MiniCa is being called the smallest and lightest camera in the world, weighing 17 grams and measuring 40x47x36 millimeters. However, its compact design doesn’t mean that taking photos with it will be difficult or that it will have useless specifications. MiniCa features a 0.96-inch display. Yes, you read it right, the world’s smallest camera weighing 17 grams comes with a digital display. The size of this display is 0.96 inches, which is approximately 1 inch.
To capture good quality photos and videos, it has a good lens that can capture videos at 1920×1080 pixels and photos at a resolution of 3760×2128 pixels. The MiniCa camera comes with a 180mAh battery that claims to last up to 60 minutes on a single charge. Not only that, it also has a microSD card reader.
Perhaps reading all this also surprises you that despite being the smallest and lightest camera in the world, MiniCa comes with all those features that are present in a larger traditional DSLR.
Currently, this camera is not available for purchase. The product can be backed through green funding. This is a crowdfunding platform similar to Indiegogo and Kickstarter, where you can support the project. As of the time of writing this news, there were 25 days left to back this project. The startup behind the project had set a target of 1 million yen (approximately 5.72 lakh rupees) for it, but the project has already raised 1,440,244 yen (approximately 8.25 lakh rupees).
