Looking to do more with your digital camera?

Here are some cool camera accessories that you might want to check out.

I’m hooked on Instagram. It’s lame to say that, to admit you actually adore some mass-market social media service. But I love to see snapshots of my friends’ lives–candids and composed photos alike. So the question becomes, would I be interested in seeing and sharing even more … much, much more? Memoto is a wearable lifecam that’s banking on us all answering “yes.” Recently featured on Kickstarter, the Memoto is like a Microsoft Sensecam for the post-iPod era. It’s a mere 1.4-inch square that clips to your shirt to automatically take photos all day every day. It exudes smart industrial design. When you want to take photos, you clip it on. When you want privacy, you just take it off or stick it in your pocket. And despite being uber tiny, the Memoto manages to convey its purpose as a mini cam that’s aimed at who you’re talking to.
