For the Photography Fan
These days, digital cameras come in all shapes and sizes, and they’re even on your phone and tablet. But photography buffs will totally geek out over the Sun & Cloud Solar-Powered Self-Generating Digital Camera. The retro style incorporates a solar panel that keeps this camera automatically charged. And, if you’re coming up short on sunlight, there’s a hand crank to power it up. (It also can be charged via its USB port.) The camera’s 3-megapixel lens shoots in normal, portrait and macro modes, and there’s a high-power LED flash for low-light settings. More into video than still photography? No sweat — it does that, too!
