The M-icro Camera Combines Antiquated Allure with Experimental Design

The M-icro Camera by Thomas Sims looks like the child of a carabiner and a two-way radio microphone. The miniature camera has been remodeled to look as little like a contemporary camera as possible, an endeavor that is both daring and rewarding.

The M-icro Camera's functionality has been simplified in order to make it accessible to all those with an interest in photography but lack the technical skill and prowess to make use of all the complex features in modern digital cameras. The large zoom knob looks like it should be attached to some piece of industrial machinery, adding a rustic appeal to a normally sleek looking gadget.

The mixture between experimental design and antiquated appeal gives the M-icro Camera a borderline steampunk-like allure to it, making it the perfect accessory for one's next traveling adventure.
