Ever smaller underwater cameras: Chobi Cam
At ScubaDiverInfo.com we've been reviewing ever-smaller digital and video cameras, but none nearly as small as the Chobi Cam that's smaller than an eraser and even with its 70-foot housing easily fits into the palm of your hand. It can only do 640 x 480 pixel VGA video and take 1.2mp pics, but it's probably just a matter of time until we see 1080p video in such tiny packages. US$227 including waterproof housing.
