When you happen to find favorite scenery, the accessory attached to your keys and bags will become a digital camera, and you can take photos and movies whenever you want to by this world’s smallest class Key-chain style Digital Camera.
Not only the minimum size, but we persisted to the quality of the photos and movies.
The image quality is slightly low compared to the modern high quality, which makes the pictures taken brighter, with less noise and with soft image.
The photo size is different from the normal rectangular size, instead, it is in a square shape (1200pix x 1200pix).
For movies, we applied the 8fps video (8 frames per second), while the regular videos are 25-30 frames per second, which makes it possible to record nostalgic images like 8 mm films.
For both photo and video, you can choose and enjoy from 4 various color-types (normal, monochrome, noise, vivid).
There are two types of lens to switch, and it is possible to focus by macro lens up to approximately 15cm, which makes it possible to purposely blur the background of the image.
Also, we have adopted chargeable lithium-ion battery, so there is no need to change battery.
The concept of this camera is very different from the mainstream digital cameras but these unusual features would be fresh and fun for you.
We really look forward to the photos and movies that would be taken by you by Pocket Digital Camera.

SQ30m doesn't have a viewfinder or liquid crystal display when taking pictures.Please focus on the line at the upper part of the camera to take a photo.
■Slow shutter speed
It takes a few seconds to save the photo after pressing the shutter button, and it is not possible to take pictures continuously.Please wait with patience, and take your time.

All information above is based on our condition of measurement, so there is a possibility we may change the figures without notice due to certain reasons.
※1 Part of the memory is used for system, so please be noted that not all internal memory is not usable for storage. The pictures you take would be saved in SDRAM memory while power delivery. The pictures you take would be deleted if the power gets turned off by either pushing the power button or by power loss. If you store the pictures in a micro SD memory card they would not be deleted.
※2 Depending on the make or brand, you may not be able to use a particular type micro SD card.
At present, safe use can be confirmed by "Panasonic" "Trancend" "BUFFALO" etc. including "SILICON POWER".
※3 Depending on the usage, battery life may be shorter than indicated.
●maximum amount of photos / movie time (internal memory in use)
Photo: approximately 10 photos / Movie: approximately 37 seconds
※Depending on the usage situation and object, the file size is nonconstant, so the capacity changes. The above is a rough idea. It depends on the remaining amount of internal memory and the micro SD card, when you use this by multiple functions.
