Yes I know this is a dealextreme post but I think it may interest some people. I was looking for a spy camera last month and they have just dropped in price to about £20 from about £50 inc delivery. I have just bought one using Paypal.

Advice from other buyers is to ot use the disc supplied, just bin it if you order

I buy tons of stuff from dealextreme, their customer service is poor but they are mega cheap and resonably quick to deliver.

edit - $5 price drop since original posting - now $33.83

Edit - It arrived on Friday - 6 days from ordering, came in black and has 4gb of memory so it is better than advertised. Haven't used it yet though

Setting date and time for video stamp
1. Edit a .TXT file, as: 2008-05-18 10:08:28 (set this to the current time, check carefully to use the correct format.
2. Rename the txt file as userconfig.txt
3. Insert the pen to your computer, copy userconfig.txt to the root of the U_DISK of the pen.
4. Remove the pen from your computer, power off the pen, then power on, now the time will be set.
5. When complete, the time will be saved forever.
b) Operating
Press button once (shortly): LED turns yellow = standby.
Press again (shortly), LED turns blue (after about 1 sec) = recording.
Press again (shortly) = turns yellow again (standby).
Press and hold for about 4 secs: LED goes off (turn of from standby).
c) Charging
while connected to usb, LED flashes yellow = charging. When LED stops flashing and is yellow continiously = fully charged.

Looks real easy.

Start practising.

Found this while studying pics taken with this camera (drifted as we all do!!). Looks very good and def good VFM.

looks like it can be used as a pen drive too so has other uses.

Heat Added.
Thx

Best price seen

If you buy with a UK credit card - do they just convert it?

Yes they (Paypal) do, at their uncompetitive exchange rate. Best way to do it is in dollars with a Nationwide credit/debit card, because this doesn't load foreign transactions with a 2.75% conversion fee.

Well as i've already posted once might aswell add some more info based on mine.

Got my camera pen from DX about a week ago so have had some time to mess about with it.
Battery life is around 1 hour 45 mins on my unit, the videos recorded in this time take up about 170MB of the 2GB drive. The pen can only record for a maximum of 1 hour 30 mins, it will then save the video and start another, there is a delay about 12 seconds while this happens where the camera is not recording.

Other than that, both the video and audio are better than i expected and overall i'm happy with it ^_^

hen someone recieves this, can u be kind enough to take a video and upload it so that we can see the quality of the video? Also, how long can u record for? Or how long does the battery life last. If they had one in night vision camera, i would buy it straight away. Also how well/bad does it pick up on colours with poor lighting?

Just bear in mind that you may get hit for customs duty as it is over the £18 import limit. A while back I bought something for £22 pounds from the States (playusa.com) and the Post Office charged me £12 duty and admin charge :x

There's actually a sample video in the DealExtreme comments, here's the link;

You're not going to be picking up much detail, but its on a par with an average mobile phone video. I would be tempted to strip it down and use it on my bike though.

DealExtreme tend to 'mislabel' their packages, most items I've bought have just had 45HKD as the value, regardless of what I paid for them! And I've never had to pay customs charges yet.

Nice deal....
#21
how long does delivery usually take?

according to the reviews on the site.. people were being sent a totally black pen.. and not the silver one as shown in the photos. so i hope we get the black one too!

Have some rep for that comment. One of my pet hates is people posting questions without reading the previous posts.

I've ordered quite a few things from DX and they always mark it as a gift worth 35-45HKD (about £3) so no customs!

Do you just add it to the order - the link gives some instructions about changing delivery address - do you have to do that or just add it to your delivery

Thanks by the way!

This one as a clock is about the same price as well http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.1221

That one is different in that it transmits a live picture wirelessly rather than recording it to internal memory.

DX marks everything as a gift anyway so SKU 1888 won't make any difference to that. All SKU 1888 does is remove DealExtreme logos from the packaging and replaces them with LiveShipping logos.

The clock you linked to uses a wireless camera and receiver so you need to hook it up to a DVD Recorder/VCR/PC with TV card to record, it is also has much worse quality due to being wireless (if you have ever used those tiny wireless cams from ebay etc. it's as bad as those).

Yes just add it to the order. :)

No it is not illegal to have an order that is a gift, to be marked as a gift.

looks cool !!!

I like this review :
"Pros: Ok. You can read the rest reviews,
I'm going to tell you about some special use of the cam.
I put it on pets (e.g. on a cat)
Then you may watch closely its habbits and secret places.
You have to attach the head of the pet to the cats collar with a bit of wire 8)
I guaranty you a lot of fun"

Lol that seems a well cool idea, putting it on your cats to see where they go and see there journey lol. Amazing.
Don't know exactly how you would fit it tho, also what happens if it comes off :O, you wont know where it is lol.

Thats no excuse. You just clutter up the thread by repeatedly asking questions that have been repeatedly answered. How dare you.
