You are sure to be the first one with the prizing winning photo of all the activities going on around your town.

Then these images can be downloaded to your computer. All you need is a USB cable to connect the lighter camera to your computer. Another great feature is that you can hold a video conference over the internet with your lighter camera and sell those embarrassing images that you just captured.
