SiPix have done the unthinkable and improved on (almost) perfection. The new Snap is the successor to the best-selling Blink
, and now features a Super Capacitor (which protects your photos if the battery dies), faster photo registration and TRUE video. It can store a huge 400 shots on its 8MB onboard memory, and is powered by just one AAA battery.
Available in metallic silver, this sleek camera is destined to be the must have gift for many a Christmas stocking this year.
Perfect for taking pictures to email friends, the SNAP measures an
incredibly small 55x50x13mm. The SNAP is so unbelievably compact, weighing in at just under 30g, that you may even forget you have it in your pocket!
In addition to looking great, its massive storage facility and its amazingly low price, the SNAP doubles as a web cam when connected to a PC via the USB interface, letting the user "talk" to friends virtually face-to-face.
The SNAP is able to capture over 160 seconds of consecutive snaps in
"streaming snapshot" mode, which can be merged together into a video file
using ArcSoft, the extensive software package provided with the SNAP.
