Thanko explores more 720p pocket shooting with Kogata HD cam

by Gareth Mankoo

There aren’t any of us who wouldn’t stop imagining what you would possibly do with a spy camera. Stalk someone and have it on record, capture some candid moments and surprise your subject later, trap some corruption in the Third World country, and just about anything innovative and secretive. The Kogata HD camera by Thanko is a HD recorder that can capture up to 720p worth of images. It packs a 5-megapixel camera, 4x digital zoom and AVI recording format for the HD grabs.

Images will be shot in JPEG format, and at 4000×3000 pixels, but it’s evident that this won’t be the most used feature anyway. 10,000 Yen (~$122).
