CamBall could be world’s smallest or roundest camera

by Mark R

I have no idea if the CamBall is the world’s smallest miniature digital video recorder, but seeing it next to the tiny pile of coins might actually convince me. Then again, I’ve seen spy cameras that are small enough to put them on pins. That is, I have seen them being used in movies. At least this one known as the CamBall is real.

The CamBall is able to record MPEG-4 video in 320 x 240 or 640 x 480 resolution. All data storage is possible via tiny SD card that is able to do about 8GB worth of memory, but I’m not sure what that translates to as far as the amount of time that is actually recorded.

You can even purchase another model that has an MP3 player built-in. The CamBall also comes with a case so it can be used underwater. I’m not certain if these balls mount on places, because I wouldn’t want them to roll over during an important surveillance operation.

Unfortunately, you can only get these CamBalls in Korea, and they will cost about $200. This just in. I have just discovered that the CamBall is actually the world’s largest camera, and that pile of coins that you see in front of it is actually a pile of silver manhole covers. Just kidding.

Got one for abseiling but didn’t order sportsband accessories – big mistake. OK resolution and long time recording. Did invest in 8Gb mini-SD card. Excellent – and can be got from and I’m waiting on restocking of 40m Waterproof and will test in diving!!

Yes, now they sell it as well in, as well as the sports pack accesories. They send to the UK as well.
