Lomo cameras are known to produce quirky effects such as oversaturated hues, out-of-focus shots, and vignetting, which are some of the trademarks of a shot taken with the shooter. However, all of these point-and-shoots are film-based, and this may not appeal to those who are more savvy with digital cameras.

Now there is the Minimo. Do note that this snapper isn't made by the Lomography Society. According to Netizens, this is the brainchild of a Japanese company that thought it might be interesting to make a matchbox-size digital camera that produces Lomo-ish shots.

The Minimo has a 2-megapixel sensor, fixed 9.3mm F2.8 lens, two focusing modes, and an SD card memory expansion slot. The shooter runs off an AAA battery and has only ISO 80 sensitivity.

We were not able to find the official site of the Minimo to see how much it is retailing for. However, there are a couple of blogs that are selling the camera, so you shouldn't have problems finding it online.
