NCS Product Synopsis
Update: November 2, 2006
«©NCSX» Way back in the day when proverbial dinosaurs roamed the land and life moved at a slower pace than today, Nintendo gave birth to the Gameboy Camera. Primitive and yet strangely popular, the camera gave gamers the ability to snap grainy 128 x 112 resolution photos and print them on the aptly named Gameboy Printer. Other than the Sega DreamEye camera which was released for the Dreamcast a few years ago, no other game-hardware-related cameras have made it to market.
Until now.
   Translated as "a little shot," Chotto Shot is the name of Sony's 1.3 megapixel digital camera accessory for the PSP which plugs into the USB port on top of the unit. The camera takes photos at a resolution of 480×272 and 640×480 with quality that's acceptable for everyday shots of squirrels, blue skies, stormy clouds, or donut eaters. For movie makers, the camera spools in video with a resolution of 480 x 272 at 30 fps. The camera can take macro photos at a distance of 7cm or standard photos at a range of 40cm to infinity focus. A built-in mic also picks up audio when taking home movies or gathering evidence.
   Sony bundles Chotto Edit software with the camera which may be used to create photo albums and slide shows. Chotto Edit also allows users to add 47 effects and filters as well as text to photos. Prospective consumers may check out some videos made with the Chotto Shot on the software developer's website, including this unfortunate video of a Japanese bloke and a helpless banana.
