I don't know how practical having to use your fingers to frame a photo would be, but I have to give credit to the people at the Institute of Advanced Media Arts and Sciences for coming up with something that takes so little space and still works as a regular digital camera.

"When you draw a picture or take a photo, you sometimes form a rectangle with your hands to decide the composition. With this camera, you can take a photo using the exact same motion. You attach this device to your index finger, and form a rectangle with your finger like this. You take the photo by using the rectangle as the viewfinder, like this. When you push hard with your thumb, the shutter is pressed."
