The Swann PenCam Mini Video Camera & Recorder is the coolest security gadget I've seen in a while. It's a functional pen, video camera and still camera all-in-one. It also performs very well for it's size and is affordable. So if you have any covert plans, you'll definitely need one of these!
I like the idea, but they could have done better with audio. You should review the Livescribe Pulse or Echo smartpens as well. Those are similar to this, but only record audio HOWEVER, the tradeoff is audio quality. The pulse and Echo i believe can record in 44.1khz, 48khz, and 96khz in low, med. and high quality settings, respectively. There is also a mic sensitivity setting, which is by default automatic. The model I have has two mics on it, but the models today have only one. As well, the pulse and echo have 96x18 OLED sisplays, can run apps, and they are designed for a similar purpose as this, but can link writing to audio, via a 72 fps infrared camera at the tip and a unique micro dot pattern on the needed paper. It writes on any paper, but its functions require dot paper. I'll leave the rest to a review.
i have buy it on some hong kong site for 20$ not smae model but do the job dealextre.com !!!
I'd rather be honest and not buy that pen cam..
Plus, the audio quality is ugly.
I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised by these tiny pen sized cameras!
My usual attitude towards these types of gadgets is "meh", but when I saw the type of resolution and low light sensitivity... I think I won't be able to stop myself to buy one.
I lol'd at the photos at the end
...annnnnnnnnnnnd a light switch!
just hangin out i see. nice
More food and a light switch.. :)
So does it record cam or pictures while not plugged into a USB port?
Answered my own question.. It uses the USB to recharge a built in battery. Now all you need to do is remove those warning stickers and cover the standby light for some sneaky cam fun...(Don't do it, probably illegal.) lol
Internet fun lol
Can you use it to bypass a place where camera is not allowed? I have been to several areas where the securities checks everyone's bag for camera (and no, they don't use x-ray).
