In an impressive feat of optical rhinoplasty, Minolta has created a shirt-pocket-size 2-megapixel digital camera, complete with a 3X zoom lens that fits entirely inside the camera's body. With no movable external lens to add weight or depth, the wafer-thin DiMage X measures 3.3 by 2.8 by 0.8 inches and weighs just 4.9 ounces. Price: $500.
