Product overview

• Clear and crisp picture quality relative to the size of the camera with 420 TVL
• Analogue CCTV technology provides you with picture quality that experiences little distortion
• Record with a field of vision of 62 degrees giving you an adequate recording area for discreet recording
• Compact and light, perfect for covert surveillance
• Record audio with the built in microphones on the DVR and camera
• All in one security recording kit with monitor and camera included

The 420 TVL micro DVR spy camera is a portable recording system with both the camera and DVR included. With a field of vision of 62 degrees a good area is captured by this camera. Any footage is recorded in an AVI format and can be played back through the attached monitor. Dummy buttons that can be affixed to the camera are also included, making this standalone kit perfect for covert monitoring.

Additional features of the 420 TVL micro DVR spy camera kit
Thanks to the camera kit being an all in one unit you can record straight away, with charging being the only thing you need to do when using it for the first time. The DVR monitor has 256 MB of built in memory, which is expandable with up to a 32 GB SD card (not included); providing you with approximately 17 hours of extra footage.

The kit is powered by a 1400 mAh rechargeable lithium battery, allowing you to record continuously for around two and a half hours. Alternatively you can enable the motion detected recording feature, improving the battery life and conserving valuable memory space for when it is needed. In addition you can record audio, with both the camera and the DVR having built in microphones or you can add your own.

What kind of accessories does this kit come with?
The kit includes a remote that you wire into the monitor for one touch recording and an AV cable for displaying footage onto a larger screen. Also supplied are dummy buttons and screw lens covers for disguising the camera, making it perfect for discreet recording.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Purchased one of these and had to take it back as the lens kept unscrewing and as such it couldnt be focused. The replacement one is even worse. You cant set the date stamp and when you try and turn it off using the main power switch it crashes. Longest vid it will record in 10 minutes and then it over-writes and previous vids irregardless of what system settings you use. Had a quick look for some kind of firmware upgrade or driver support but with no manufactures information i cant find any so I'm taking this back first this tomorrow and I'll be getting a refund.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Purchased one of these. Quality of pictures and video fine but the remote switch only works when it wants to making it very difficult to film covertly without having the camera run continuously.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adequate I'm used to using GoPro's, which have a very wide field of vision, and are crystal clear. But they're also relatively bulky and don't have a viewing screen unless you buy a separate one to attach to the rear. I thought this might therefore work for me in terms of portability and ability to monitor what was being recorded. My main disappointment is the absence of any wide angle. Clearly it wasn't designed to have a wide angle of vision, but I think it could have done with being wider than it is. You have to be quite accurate with the 'aim' in order to capture anything which is relatively close. The other disappointment is the menu system and controls. They're just not particularly intuitive, but perhaps I just need to read the minimalist manual a bit more and practice with it. I'm not sure it will do what I wanted it to, but as I've destroyed the packaging already, I guess I'll persist a little longer with it.
