    That is so cool…it beats the ole “pop them over your shoulder” bit. I’m amazed at how small and compact these things are getting yet I want this ‘new’ technology so bad…

    I’d be afraid someone would sneak up behind me and be able to unclip it without me noticing.

    Meh – doesn’t appear to be MAC compatible!

    I wanted one.

    What a huge bummer it isn’t Mac compatible. Any similar cameras that are?

      I’m pretty sure that these cameras (at least the 3.2 and 5MP versions) have an SD card slot. So you would just need a card reader to offload the pix to your Mac.

    Oh cool!

    I only saw Windows required in the specs.

    Looks like it’s got a Mass Storage Device mode. Don’t quote me on it, but that would indicate that it *should* let you copy pictures off of it via a Mac. Webcam mode might be a bit tricky, though.

    I have one but I am still in the learning curve stage. Outdoor shots I am doing fine indoor it is hard to get the light settings right. Its to light or too dark no happy medium (yet)
