What are the benefits of a pen camera?
Disguised as an ordinary pen, this spy camera is perfect for discreet surveillance. When placed in your top pocket, or perhaps clipped to a newspaper, this simple writing tool becomes a lot more useful. You can use this pen camera to record conversations with people, as an audio bug, or as a covert security camera in your home if you pop out to the shop.

How do I use the pen camera?
Able to capture footage at a high definition resolution of 1280 x 720 at 30fps, and still images at a resolution of 1600 x 1200, this camera is incredibly versatile. A simple push of a button activates recording, and a switch is situated on the pen to capture still images.

How do I view my images and recordings?
Thanks to having a USB interface, your footage is extremely simple to retrieve. Simply plug your pen into any computer that is USB enabled and you’re good to go.
