    Check out the "It's Love, It's Pen" toy/cellphone strap, apparently being given away as part of an Olympus promotion in Hong Kong:

    The images above are from Micgadget.com, which has a hands-on featuring more images, and is selling the toy in very limited quantities. At the time of this writing, they have 5 black and 7 white left in stock (limit 2 per customer) for $6.90 plus shipping. I just ordered two, and it came to $20.40 total shipped to the U.S.

    [Thanks Chris]

    I think I may have got the last one, now to find an adapter and some legacy glass.

    You'd need to use your fingernails to mount it!

    Low light performance must stink with a sensor so small...

    Its probably still too big for some!

    Is this the camera equivalent of the Zoolander phone?

    I am sure it captures that photon quite well!

    My question is how one of these doesn't make it into every single camera box!

    Also, would it be as upsetting to lose one of those lenses as the real thing? Probably.

    I (supposedly) got two BLACK ones! They were in stock briefly right after this initial post, then gone, then back. On the second round, I grabbed two. Let's see if they show up before I decide on what to do with the second one.

    Me too, I set it to notify me when they became available and it happened later today. So I bought one of each (and apparently took the last white one).
