Carabiner Camera


Wait a minute, I thought it was his bowtie — shows how out of it I am.

No matter.


From websites:

5MP Carabiner Camera


Cool things happen all the time but sometimes you only have a moment to capture them.

You won't miss the moment if you have a Carabiner Camera.


This water-resistant 5MP camera with a 1.5" LCD screen clips to your key ring, pack or belt loop, giving you immediate access.

And with a built-in flash and webcam/video streaming capability, you can shoot photos or video.


So, when you're out on your latest adventure and see an exotic animal or a breathtaking sunset view you won't waste time digging through your pack.

Includes rechargeable Li-Ion battery and USB cable for easy transfer to your computer.


Looking at the camera, it occurs to me that the manufacturer could offer a cut-rate version that uses the hole as the viewfinder, sans LCD screen.

I'm just saying.


Red: $59.13.

Blue: $52.88.

Green: $59.13.

Hmm... I might have to put this on my list. A reviewer on Amazon noted that it took up to a 2 gig SD card, so it looks like this thing is good to go.

It is 5MP but 16MB...does it take memory cards because this is only like 5 pictures worth?

Having said that, I threw my cheap ($120) HD Camcorder on a carabiner for climbing. Had to wire some aircraft quality cable through the loop to make certain it wasn't going to break off, but I tested the loop and was able to get about 3KN out of it...I could definitely clip onto this camera if my life depended on it (if it didn't? I'd be stupid to try! My standard clips are about 32KN...pretty much lift a large pickup with one of these). I have a 4GB card for that (and a few to spare).

Beyond this, I threw a gorillapod onto the bottom of this and it can wrap around just about any feature I needed to capture the climb. Well, not my climb...I'm still at an advanced beginner stage because of the arthritis -- but my friends love it.

I will, however, say this looks a LOT more rugged. If it took memory cards, I wouldn't mind carrying one of these with me as opposed to the other device. I wouldn't mind banging that around a bit outdoors.
