You can probably process the footage from your video-capable camera or phone to mimic the 8mm home movies of yesteryear, but if you can pick up the 1.4-ounce Fuuvi Bee–which shoots for 100 minutes on a single charge–for just $80, it’s hard to see why you’d bother. Especially as the Bee is designed to spit out herky-jerky 8mm-style movies with no post-processing whatsoever.
As you’d expect, the Bee boasts an almost wilfully poor set of specs. The video–captured to microSD card–is recorded at 640 x 480 pixels and 30fps, and the 1.3MP sensor can also capture stills. Shutter speeds run from 1/6 – 1/2500 sec and the lens has a decent maximum aperture of ƒ2.8.n't been announced yet. The Bee is available now.
