Micro SD card slot
and voice control switch
Remember when camcorders were bigger than Volvo estates and heavier than anvils? No, neither do we. We chose to forget about the humungous contraptions the day digital camcorders hit the scene. And looking, nay squinting, at the Muvi Atom Digital Video Camera
, who can blame us?
Impossibly titchy (we're talking biro top here, folks), this ludicrously peasy movie cam is set to redefine the genre. One button does the lot. Moreover, at only 4cm x 2cm x 2cm, it's the smallest camcorder in the world
. You can even wear it around your neck and use it as a webcam. Try doing that with your old tape-munching camcorder. Actually, don't. You'll hurt yourself and break your computer.
2GB Micro SD Card
Despite its eye-rubbing weeny-ness the Muvi Atom records in VGA quality (640x480) equivalent to the best selling (and comparatively enormous) Mino and Ultra by Flip. Incredible! Videos are stored on the included 2GB Micro SD card
, but for those of you who prefer real epics the Muvi Atom can handle cards up to 8GB.
Wannabe movie moguls with a penchant for boxing gloves (well you never know) can rest easy because the Muvi Atom has a special VOX mode
that lets you start/stop recording using your voice (or any other noise over 65 decibels). "Annnnd….action!" It's ideal for those moments when your hands aren't to…erm, hand, or you feel like going on a Christian Bale style rant.
Speaking of action, this sleek miracle of miniaturisation is encased in a tough metal shell, so you can video that bloke out of Kings of Leon's lower legs from the mosh pit without having to refer to the guarantee.
As you've undoubtedly guessed, the Muvi Atom is charged via USB
while uploaded movies can be fiddled with using the included software. In fact the only thing not included is a bunch of imbecilic friends who'll pass out, trip over and drop their pants for your movie making amusement. That's a wrap!
