Those who have been hitting up Consumer Electronics Show for the past years may have noticed a big brand in Central Hall, LVCC, that hadn’t been there for the last four years or so.

Remember the Singapore-based startup, TinyMOS, that made the world’s smallest astronomy camera? Well, they have just wiped their own world’s smallest astronomy camera title with another even tinier astronomy camera called NANO1. And as the product name suggests, it is really, really, small.

Russia Camera Maker Zenit Lives Again, Unveiled Its First Leica-based Camera

I am not a photography buff myself, but I have sure seen and read about Zenit, the famed USSR-era Russian camera brand, in my younger days (don’t ask how). So what about it?
