This is quite thick but it is useable as a pen.

The flashing light needs to be covered by a small label if you want to use it in 'spy' mode.

Flashing light on the front??

The light is on the back and it is the size of a pin head - you just put a microscopic bit of bluetac over it and its gone.

It is a decent enough picture and there is sound too..... a great little camera and total bargain for this price.

I have broken the clip off mine and put a label around the body to disguise it. I intend to try and get the actual camera out of the casing but not sure if it is possible without a pair of bolt cutters. The top comes off and inside is a tiny curcuit board. The USB appears to be welded in, hence why I can't remove the casing.

Where is the camera located on the pen?

Looks pretty hot to me

i guess if the lens isn't on a tip then it has an orientation.

does anyone know how good the quality of sound is? thanks

The usb aspect of this is shockingly slow. I tried putting a 700mb movie on it, and it took around 20 minutes. Usually its a matter of around 10-15 seconds. Dont know how it can be so slow, being a usb 2.0 apparantly.

Sometimes its fine, sometimes its this eerie, ghoulie kind of sound.

Can it easily be fitted above a couple's bed?

Up to the point it gets stuck!

You sad voyeurs!

What would you use it for though?

I got one of these, they not that good in my opinion. flashing bright led light when recording, sound is not good although you can hear what is being said if you are close enough. I would not bother.

if anyone does get one be careful,
it comes with a disc to load into your computer which is all in japaenese the disc also contains a virus (trojan horse). make sure you have a good virus protection installed. :!:

Got one of these last time they were a "hot deal".

About the size of the old fountain pens (ink dipping type).

Good video, tho sound can be a bit choppy at times.

Didn't get one with the AC adaptor so i can only charge mine via USB 2.0, and it takes a whopping 3+ days to fully charge (mine may be faulty).

Its a great gadget and i recommend it.

I have ordered one which broke actually. The quality of the pen is not really that good (the glue they use inside to hold the pieces together is poor). The pen does work and whilst I have said the above the actual footage they record is good quality, far better than I expected. Sound also is fine.

Regarding hiding the recording - you can do that easily. You put the pen in your top pocket on a jacket. The light shines on the reverse side of the camera hold. Obviously the camera hole points outwards with the light pointing inwards.

I'll be buying another.

also - do NOT USE THE SOFTWARE it comes with - it has a VIRUS! You don't actually NEED to install it anyway to use it.

So don't

usb2 is the interface, has nothing to do with speed of the actual memory.

Yes, if you covertly suspend yourself from their ceiling first.:)

I want one. No idea what for - but I want one. Voted HOT.

I agree, just got to have one ...

How are these in room light conditions?

Do these heat up? If so, does the video quality degrade over time, say after half and hour - or does it remain a constant quality?

Doesn't sound very likely to me - 15 secs for 700MB is about 50MB per sec - from a USB stick? That's the theoretical maximum for USB.

Worst company ive ever had to misfortune of dealing with.

I ordered one and it was obviously a previous return cos 1) it didnt work and 2) it already had files on from a previous user and 3) the clip was broken....nightmare!! - took about 3 weeks to arrive too...comes from Japan or China or similar.

Why would anyone need this rubbish , apart from pervs.

I cant stand things like this or even camera phones , i just dont get why , i think its shameful to spy on people

If you are being harassed at work and the person doesn't do it in front of other colleagues this would work wonders in your case against them. Even if it means they just get moved to another department.

I believe you wouldnt be allowed to use the evidence in a court of law as you first have to have the person permission who you are filming.

Also i wouldnt trust someone in my work place if they went around doing spy filming , dont think women would be too impressed either , knowing someone goes around with spy cams

If i dont get on with someone at work or they offend me , i let them know , i dont go around filming them or telling tails

Also is it not illegal to film people without prior permission? as you are not doing it in your own home , you are going in public and filming people , sure there is some law preventing people doing this? as what stops some bloke from placing it on a seat to look up a womans skirt?

Hence i hate these sort of things and would like them withdrawn , nobody needed spy cams before and nobody needs them now , youre not in the SAS or MI5

Exactly if you are in a public place you can expect to be filmed just like I can take my camera to the park and take pictures, and no the police can't confiscate the camera under the terrorism act because I'm not a terrorist :w00t:

btw I don't do this, only at the beach with the ladies 8-) I joke I'm gay! as if, I'm really homophobic its okay I'm gay no I'm not I'm straight my girlfriend loves me

Totally different , they are not spying on in secret are they?

You chose to walk passed the camera , you would have a right to ask for your face to not be shown but that would be silly.

Its not like they were filming you and only you to either find something about you or to view you without any clothes on

When you go in shopping centre they have warning signs to inform you that you are being filmed you you then give them permission by walking in.

Who said this would be used for that?

People don't buy laser pens to bring down aircraft, but they can.......

What about all the hidden CCTV everybody is caught on daily?

EDIT: The use of an item is down to the maturity and sensibility of the user, not the product. It's illegal to burn buildings down, yet every smoker carries a lighter.

Well how comes them when you have cctv camera on your home that it cant have the view off a public path in , if a member of the public complains the Police will ask you to either remove it or change the angle to exclude the view off the public path

True, but the front is the side that you clip it to your shirt (the place where the clip is)..... the light is on the opposite side, meaning the light is hidden as it is pressed against your shirt!
