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!
