Hello Kitty camcorder

Japanese camera maker Exemode announced [JP] the Hello Kitty DV520KT today, a simple 5MP CMOS camcorder that only has one thing going for it: it features mega-popular cartoon cat Hello Kitty saying “Hi” on the hardware. That’s what it probably makes perfect for young girls though.

Technically, buyers get a camcorder that records video in either 640 × 320 or 480 × 240 resolution and at 30fps or 15fps (so don’t expect huge picture quality) on SD or SDHC cards (up to 8GB). There’s also a 2-inch TFT LCD screen, 32MB of built-in memory, LED light, and a USB 1.1 port. Users can upload pictures and videos from the camera directly to Flickr and YouTube.

The camera, which is powered by two AAA batteries, will come with a price tag of $90 when it comes out in Japan on June 25. Ask import/export specialist Geek Stuff 4 U if you live outside this country but want to make your little sister happy.
