Tiny video cameras mount almost anywhere

Four new video cameras from Toshiba redefine the term microminiature. The IK-M43H camera's head is 7 mm in diameter--about that of a standard No. 2 pencil. It is the length of a paper clip (42 mm) and has a lens the size of a corn kernel. Other members of this microminiature camera line are the IK-M41A, which boasts a 0.5-inch, 410,000-pixel CCD image sensor; the IK-41A, a high-resolution monochrome camera optimized for pattern recognition; and the IK-TU40A, an ice-cube-size point-of-view camera that can work with a wireless transmitter. Possible applications include: space-sensitive machine vision, medical research, and broadcast equipment. Toshiba America Information Systems: Product Code 4206
