Superheadz has unveiled the world’s first self-generating camera, called “Sun & Cloud”, which can generate its own power through a solar panel or mechanical means.
Digital retro photography is becoming a trend. As with all trends, some like it, while others are not interested in it. However, Sun & Cloud cannot go unnoticed on the digital camera market thanks to the fact that it can generate its own power.
Sun & Cloud self-generating camera is a world’s first
Superheardz Japan will amaze photographers with the help of its self-generating camera. It consists of a tiny black or white box, which can capture digital photos and videos.
The device is dubbed as the first self-generating camera in the world. It gathers its own power from a tiny solar panel placed on its top.
Cloudy days and dark rooms will not pose a huge threat to this camera because it comes packed with a hand crank, which can be used by photographers to generate kinetic energy.
Superheadz Japan thought of it all, as the Sun & Cloud combines the best of both worlds. However, it can also be recharged through a USB port. However, environmentally-friendly users will most likely choose the other two alternatives for recharging their cameras.
But wait, there’s more about the Sun & Cloud than solar power
Speaking of the camera, it captures photos with the help of a 3-megapixel CMOS image sensor. It can also shoot movies at 30 frames per second or at 8fps.
The multimedia content is stored on SD and SDHC memory cards with capacities of 2GB and 16GB respectively.
There are three shooting modes available for photographers, such as normal from 150 centimeters, portrait from distances between 60 and 150cm, and macro for photographing subjects from distances between 25 and 35cm.
Shooting in low-light conditions is possible, as ISO sensitivity can be ramped up to 800, while a high-power LED flash is located above the 3MP sensor to brighten the surrounding areas.
Superheadz Japan is already selling this eco-friendly camera
The Sun & Cloud self-generating camera is a very interesting product, which measures only 6 x 6 x 8-inches and weighs 200 grams.
Superheadz Japan has begun selling this camera for a price of just below $200 through select retailers. You can find it on Amazon too.
