KFE Hello Kitty camera
KFE's DC500 sports the ubiquitous face of Hello Kitty, one of Japan's most successful long-term brands. The camera itself is a modest 5MP model, limited to ISO 100 sensitivity and 4x digital zoom (as opposed to optical). Its 32MB of internal memory can only be supplemented by SD cards ranging to 1GB. It does however have four stops of exposure compensation (-2.0/+2.0), and it can record up to three minutes of video at 640x480, or four minutes at 320x240. A computer with Windows 98 SE or greater is required. The DC500 is selling online for 12,800 yen ($108).
