Photography/USB Flash Drive Camera


Dear Pat

Is it possible to integrate Camera electronics (Lens and Camera integrated Circuits), Battery cells for powering in USB Flash Drive ?.

There will be a Button on the USB Flash Drive to take photos. The Inbuilt memory on the flash drive will capture and store the Photos.

Later on the USB Flash Drive will be integrated with Wi-Fi / Bluetooth technology to transfer Camera images to other Cameras, Smartphones etc.

The Limitations could be the smaller Width and not the Length  
of the Flash Drive.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Hello, Prashant,

Why would anyone WANT to use a USB Flash Drive in that way? You have a memory card INSIDE the camera. This means it isnít vulnerable, and it doesnít get in the way. As for transferring images to another camera, I am not aware that any camera can RECEIVE images from another device. You have a camera, you download the images you have taken onto, say, a PC, and then use them there.

Whether or not itís possible isnít really the question. Obviously, itís possible, if someone chooses to design it. But as far as I know, there is no demand for such a capability, and nobody has designed it.

Please keep in mind that I am not the expert you need to help you develop a new product of some kind. If you come up with a product, see if you can get someone to manufacture it. All of that is totally outside my expertise. I find your questions perplexing, and canít figure out why you want to know these kinds of things. It simply doesnít make sense to me. I donít know if there is anyone else in this group who can answer these types of questions, but it wouldnít be me.

I can answer questions about the artistic aspects of photography, and tricks for shooting landscape, scenic, macro, and animal photography. I am familiar with Pentax SLR cameras, both film and digital. I have also done work in urban photography and creative photography, and I am familiar with creative uses of filters and lenses. I am familiar with composition and color theory, and know how to make use of light. I can answer questions about things like lightning photography and moon photography. I spend time studying the techniques of the well known photographers. I work exclusively in color. Although I travel anywhere and everywhere in pursuit of landscape and scenic photography, my main area of expertise is the American southwest, and I am familiar with many scenic areas. I also have familiarity with the plants of the Sonoran Desert, having studied not only their appearance but also their uses, including ethnobotany. See my educational credentials for other art that I do.


I have spent the last ten years as a semi-professional photographer, selling my work on the internet, and having won international honors. The gallery of my most recent work, where I usually post frequently is I will take questions about how I did various photographs.

The first prize I won for my art was when I was in third grade. I have a bachelor's degree in art from Ohio Dominican University, where I learned mainly ceramics and glaze calculation. I have also done various kinds of fiber arts. In addition, I do digital landscapes, abstracts, and fractal art.
