New Kenko camera with two shutter buttons in Japan

Kenko Tokina of Japan has announced a new camera that is a very basic camera, but has one interesting feature: two shutter buttons! Details computer-translated from Japan at Kenko-Tokina and digitalcamera.jp. Check the pictures at the Kenko website to see where the two shutter buttons are placed.

From what we can tell, its name might be OGOB-01. The other interesting feature is a 3.6" LCD. Other than that, it has a 5mp 1/2.5" CMOS sensor, a fixed lens (no optical zoom), SD memory card support, small size, LiIon battery NP-60, and weight of 140g but without battery and memory card.

The last part is something I always find funny with specifications from various camera manufacturers. Why do they give weight measurements without a battery and memory card? Perhaps because you can use the camera without a battery and without a memory card? ;-)

the weight minus battery and memory card i think is for shipping purposes. but you're right, they should also publish camera weight with battery and memory card in for the information of consumers.

Good point! Then again, the retailers are usually listing the weight of the camera box with all the accessories and such, or even the shipping weight.
