Daniel Bell has a look at the Harinezumi 2+++... "My first thought was that it looked like a Ghetto Blaster Boombox which I had many years ago. With a mere four buttons and a sliding switch the camera was really easy to use. The camera has a screen on the back, but also has a viewfinder which you can manually pop up when needed. Personally I didn't use this as I preferred viewing through the screen on the rear."

The camera has a few creative options. Firstly you can shoot macro pictures with a minimum focus distance of 3cm. You can also set the colour from: Normal, Vivid 1, Vivid 2, Colour Old (Nostalgic), Colour Old 2 (washed out colours), Monochrome Normal, Monochrome Hard, Monochrome Soft, Colour Blue and Colour Red. Videos are 640 x 480 in avi format, at 30fps.

Shooting pictures of pets is quite easy as the camera is much more discrete than an DSLR or compact.

The camera can be purchased for around £130. This is a touch expensive condsidering the quality of compact camera available these days, but it's certainly a novelty item!
