The 'Bonzart Lit' continues to revolutionize the term "pocket-sized camera."

Measuring three inches by two inches and only 0.5-inches thick, the truly tiny camera is small enough to be held between two fingers. The Bonzart Lit is a digital toy camera that has a resolution of up to 2,048 by 1,536 pixels, or three Megapixels -- the equivalent to an Apple iPad 3 retina screen. Priced at $40, the camera requires a microSD card.

The camera itself looks like a toy, but comes equipped with shot choices between spot, center or multiple metering modes, as well as Auto, Daylight, Cloudy, Fluorescent and Tungsten white balance settings, exposure control, a timer, a tripod mounting hole and burst mode. It also comes with B&W, Sepia and Negative filtering options, as well as red, green and blue tints.

While the camera quality is incomparable to some of high-end DSLRs on the market today, the Bonzart Lit, which comes in red, black, white, blue or pink, is perfect for those looking to take selfies discreetly or for those who are prone to losing expensive valuables.
