If there’s one thing iPhone photography has taught us, it’s that anything can be passed off as art. Oh, there’s a bunch of backlight? Yeah, it’s supposed to look like that. Blurred image? Totes on purpose. Cut of someone’s head, blurred the photo, added a technicolour flash and obscured half the frame with your finger? Vogue is on the line – they want you to shoot the September cover…. Seems the crappier the photo, the more you can claim ‘art outsider’ status.

Speaking of crappy photos – the Chobi Cam One has set a new benchmark for both size and shoddy photo quality. Only slightly larger than the SD cards it saves to, this engineering miracle can shoot photos at 1600 x 1200 pixels (almost 2MP! Whoa). It also records rubbish quality movies (30fps 640 × 480) in an obscure video format.

Still not convinced? Maybe the interchangeable lenses will sway you. You can go with a wide angle lens, a fish eye, or a teleconverter. Also, you can use your Chobi Cam One as an actual keychain.

Retailing for approximately $120 (with additional lenses $30), the Chobi Cam One is a brave new frontier in very bad photography. Except the requisite art shows in about 12 months.

Buy the Chobi Cam One from jtt.ne.jp .
