Another stunning bargain from SCAN.CO.UK - they nearly giving em away - FREE delivery too

It's not a "stunning bargain" at all - image quality on these is appalling - ALOT worse than your phone's worst video.

Super cheap have some heat.

Do read the review which is poor until you read the follow up which explains how it works.

So am I right in thinking that this has micro SD and records 1080p so can be used to record like a gopro? Would be great for kids if so

is this locked to ee network

Yeah, not interested in broadcasting but would be good if you can record to SD card.

I looked at this the previous 4 times it was posted, each time trying to find a different review or hack advice to justify getting it. None. You still have to press the record button I believe, so useless as a cheap security cam.

But, maybe, just maybe, it could be hacked, so I might end up getting one.

Just a cool little gadget!!

I got one when these where 20 now they are giving them away. At this price super hot but be aware it needs to see an EE SIM to upgrade the firmware or you get annoying nag screen coming up on device. After that they are completely unlocked. And you use Facebook live for live casting

How noticeable is the recording light? Would I be able to sneak record my daughter's ballet performances without having to pay £50 (I kid you not) for the DVD?

Tempted to buy as love a gadget

Yes it has SD card to record

I just got one it has a ee s and when you put it updates and now can use non ee sim quality

Plus used a sd and paired the camera to WiFi and now can control from app from phone save to phone and sd card


Battery lasted ok for the size of it


Quality not bad for less than £15

Now going to try and steam live on Facebook live

Bargin

Just about to buy 5 mot for Xmas presents

I just don't understand this products design choices. I imagine it would have sold better if it didn't require a sim card to update the firmware or feature a streaming service that nobody uses.

I have one and would say stay WELL AWAY. the recording quality is worse than a £7 ebay cam. its grainy and looks like its interpolated.

I bought one of these for £20-ish last time it was on. Still in the box

Dilly dallied too long. They want payment for delivery now when I go to check out...

Sure but your lawyer may cost more than £50

This would perhaps make a good kite-cam, though I suppose nobody does that any more. I expect everybody just uses expensive drones these days. Anyway if you have to pay postage now, it's no longer a good deal.

Then I would counter sue them for child labour as they charge families £20 a ticket to watch their children who don't get paid a penny.

Cheapest postage is £4 if you're willing to wait a week for it.

Here's hoping someone has a bundle of HTC Re camera's that they want to mass sell on Cyber Monday!

That’s probably outfit/venue costs ? I was on about using a recording device in the company of children without consent, you will need a lawyer for police and crown action that may be taken, even as a parent in the company of other children permission should be sought, esp a concealed device, a mobile phone or camera is visually there, a small camera you are trying to conceal will raise suspicions, be safe and pay the ticket price

I'll leave it, at £13 it seems like a piece of frivolity that I could stick in a drawer and forget about if it didn't take off (forgive the pun) but at £17 I'm less inclined. It has got me thinking though. Back many, many, years ago I built a kite cam rig, and I think I bought a VGA wireless camera as well. But due to lack of enthusiasm from helpers I gave up on ever trying it. It is still somewhere around and I do now have children. Though managing to drag the little beggars away from their Roblox and Youtube screens to take an interest in the real world might be a challenge too far. One has to try I suppose. Heaven help their generation, and ours too I suppose, if we ever lost the interweb.

I works without SIM card

Just a feature you don’t need to use it’s just like a action cam but smaller and if people say quality is bad on restoring go buy a go pro that are £300 up £600


It’s £13 guys and girls

This is a better picture of the camera

Mine has come, I've updated and connected it to the phone...the video is pretty blocky...can you record to your phone without using sim / credit?

Apparently these are made by BenQ, I wonder if there is a generic firmware.

Mine came with a SIM card. Looks as if it comes with a 10 bundle says 30 days, cracking deal if the SIM cards work. I'll eventually pull the other side of my RN4 hot as the sun this one.

There's 2 options one to record on the memory card in the device or two to Facebook live to your SIM in the phone your phone just acts as the viewfinder. The original app to live stream doesn't work it's all Facebook now

Mine arrived yesterday with a "Grade A" sticker on the side, unwrapped accessories and a free Jakeman's sweet wrapper! This is the second time that Scan have failed to impress - and I'm still waiting for my returns label. Don't think that they'll be getting any more of my business any time soon.

On the positive side, the camera seem well built, it has GPS and could potentially be used as a 4G hotspot (yet to try). The photo/video quality is pretty poor, but if you were thinking of recording your next HD blockbuster movie on this you have chosen the wrong device. If Scan manage to send me out a new replacement I'm thinking that I'll probably use mine as an inspection camera (paired with a suitable light-source) or temporary security cam.

Thanks OP for posting the deal.
