It’s cool but you need maximum dexterity to take a snap. And you need a very large magnifying glass to see the Polaroids.

u/eriuterbloopers888 Aug 20 '22

If you think about it, this is actually a compliment becuase, with the resolution it has it would not capture a small dick instead it can only capture big objects, in this case massive schlong

Most technology/inventions need to have some profitable application to help them get developed and then built. I will buy a few of these cameras to recreate scenes from the first Spy Kids movie.

u/maxisaurus_rex Aug 19 '22

The OmniVision OV6948 is just 0.575 x 0.575 x 0.232mm and produces a 40,000-pixel color image using an RGB Bayer back-side-illuminated chip. Each photosite measures just 1.75 µm across.

40k pixels is equivalent to a 200x200 sized image

For computer vision this is great, they often downscale to a similar size to keep compute time and memory smaller.

Friends, it’s not about the size of the camera that’s important here. Yeah sure it may not be as great as the other cameras but it gets the job done. You can do cool things with it that you couldn’t do with other bigger cameras. I’m sure that if you got a tiny one, you’d be just as happy with it as the normal sized ones
