  • The sound is great and clear but the picture is so noisy with a clicking sound

  • Easy to set up but in order to find which of the 4 channels the camera was linked to I set the receiver to loop mode between all 4 channels until the picture was shown on the tv. Turned out the picture was on channel 3. Can't get the battery clip to work though. However, it's a good picture for a little camera.

  • Great little camera for the price. The lens is a little fuzzy at the edges, but is OK especially considering the size. It was easy to set up and does what it says.

  • James Crawford said:

    Could you use the camera to "read" a normal book and display it onto a tv screen? If displayed on a 28" 100hz screen would the filmed text be displayed on the tv magnified and clear enough for a visually-impaired person to read.

    That should be absolutely fine.
