Canon EOS dSLR thumbdrive won't take pictures

The acclaimed camera has been miniaturized to fit a USB plug into the lens rear, which can be screwed into the faux camera body to protect the contact points.

Over here at CNET Asia, we've seen some quirky thumbdrives, but this might hit the sweet spot for some photographers. The acclaimed Canon EOS 5D Mark II has been miniaturized to fit a USB plug into the lens rear, which can be screwed into the faux camera body to protect the contact points.

We're guessing this USB peripheral is as petite as the Glico-issued Nikon collectible, though the difference is that the Canon thumbdrive actually works and is available in only 4GB capacity. It can be found on eBay for $95. I wonder if we will ever see an 8GB version built to replicate the higher-end EOS 1Ds Mark III .
