        What do James Bond, The Saint, Milk Tray Man and Derek Flint all have in common? No, not a strange penchant for black polo necks, nylon-esque hairdos and ill-fitting leisure suits. They all simply love playing with ultra-compact, do-everything, state-of-the-art cameras. And now, thanks to the amazingly versatile Blink Digital Camera you can too. Of course, unlike the aforementioned super-spies' pics, your snaps should be far more entertaining, as the Blink's tiny dimensions make it ideal for party animals, sports freaks and clubbers alike. And because it's digital you'll never have to explain yourself to those pesky processing people! What would 'M' say? Not much in all probability, because at just 5.5cmx5.5cm the Blink is small enough to secrete from any boss, no matter how perceptive.

        In fact, anyone with a passing interest in espionage should get their mitts on this little baby. Taking quick pics while nobody's looking is simple and infinitely less conspicuous than sticking small mirrors to your shoes or wearing soppy X-ray specs. (Take it from us, they don't work).

        But it's not all about size; the tiny Blink is crammed with so many features even 'Q' would be lost for words. It's a digital camera, streaming video camera, USB video camera and video conferencing camera all in one. Now pay attention 007 because each Blink features Streaming Snapshot® mode, which means 100 images can be rapidly captured and 'streamed' to create your own AVI clips. All the software is included so sharing vid clips via email or on the web is a doddle.

        The Blink's 8MB memory means it can save up to 300 photos (at 320x240), and its 640x480 resolution is just right for capturing every single moment of drunken mayhem on holidays and nights out. Complete with handy neck strap and swivel belt clip, the Blink is also great for sporty-types who like their cameras sleek, small and overloaded with nifty functions.

        The Blink really is the business when it comes to transferring snaps and clips onto your PC. It comes complete with a powerful but user-friendly software package that makes editing, enhancing, retouching, printing and montaging a total doddle. Which, in plain English, means grafting a pigeon's head and J-Lo's bottom half onto a snapshot of the boss is a piece of cake. Of course, whether you actually send it or not is up to you. The Blink's software also allows you to place photos in calendars, frames and greetings cards. The possibilities are endless.

        If the buzz around Firebox HQ is anything to go by this ingenious little gizmo is going to be a real bestseller. So don't think, Blink!
