It broke after a few months and the seller wouldn't honor the warranty. The quality of video was decent but who cares when it breaks that quickly. You get what you pay for.
A good value for Surveillance Camera5/4/2011
For the price, this camera seems to be a pretty great value. I had a little difficulty setting up the time/date stamp; but when I called Unilution, the customer service was very friendly, she emailed me a new text file and walked me through setting it up (and it's working fine now). I haven't used it a great deal yet; but my friend has used his for months (PI work) and loves it.
Revised review after testing further1/6/2011
After running this through a few more tests I have found that it is Mac OSX compatible, but not Windows 7 compatible. The Windows machine will not recognize the disk in the camera. The setting for sound activated video does not work, it crashes the camera and it then has to be reset. There is a way to set a clock to date the videos, but it involves writing a mini code and saving the file to the camera disk through the computer. So putzy I didn't try to do it. Low light videos seem pretty good. Sound gets muffled if camera isn't aimed directly at a person and they are several feet away. I still like it and I will work around the issues.
Seems to work so far1/3/2011
I just purchased a week ago and have not run it through all of the hoops but it seems to work. The video quality can be pretty good, depending on how much the camera is moving around. Seems to get in up to 18" and still takes a clear shot. The instructions are on a mini cd-rom. They are poorly interpreted from Chinese. You have to be a little creative to understand them. It comes with some parts that are not described in the manual, such as what appears to be a backup battery charger...a tube that holds batteries of some type with a mini usb cable. Not sure I want to mess with this without instructions. The computer was not able to recognize the camera unless it is set on the photo (not video) setting, which is not explained in the manual. Took a bit to figure this out. So far so good for the money.
I bought this with the intention of using it for undercover surveillance work. Based on the Buy.com price ($45.96 including shipping), I really did not expect the quality to be good enough to be used professionally. I am truly amazed at the quality of the video and sound this device takes! I have taken some very good video standing at the “position of interview”. But any significant movement of the pen while taking video kills the quality. The one real disappointment is the lack of instructions or any type of software. The video files are created in AVI format so you’ll need a player that will handle it. Also even though I found the instructions online to change the date/time stamp, it isn’t taking the changes. I have a feeling it’s simply a word translation issue from Chinese to English. Eventually I’ll figure it out. The instructions are located on this site: http://shop.omejo.com/newshow.php?id=15
I am sorry to say that the order has been very disappointing. Out of the box it hasn't worked yet. Buy.com does not handle this directly and passed me on to the vendor that sells the pen. I have been working with the vendor over the last week and nothing they have recommended has worked yet. I tried using the AC charger and it never charged the battery. At the advice of the seller I then tried the USB port and the pen started to blink. After a couple of hours I again tried to get the pen working but no luck. Waiting on my email to the vendor as to what they want me to try next. After all the high recommendations I read about this product, I had higher expectations of the product than what I have so far. Hoping things work out in the end.
Worth every penny.8/12/2010
I got this camera expecting the quality to be pretty mediocre considering it's only $45 shipping included. However I was pleasantly surprised to find it suits my needs quite well. If you have extra money try to find a wide angled one but if it doesn't worry you this is the camera you want. Here's a sample video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRXtcKj4kBw
Great Pen Camerea5/1/2010
This is an excellent Pen Camera. If your a Police Officer this is a great camera. I have had a lot of success with this. It provides clear audio and decent video. 8gb is a good amount of space. I just start it before interacting with someone and end it after. My shift is 10 hours and rarely go over the 8gb limit. Again I don't record the whole day. It probably provides 4 hours of video or so. The transfer of files takes awhile but I just do it when I sleep. I then take all the files and burn them onto a DVD for the day or sometimes week if not much is going on and file the DVD. Great investment!
Great pen camera.1/17/2010
Overall an acceptable recording device for it's price and recording capabilities. While the video is not the greatest I think it's acceptable depending on what is being recorded. The instructions provided too were not the easiest to make sense of however it wasn't that hard to figure out how to use this pen eventually. Finally, I also have found that transferring my video recordings from the pen with my laptop to be fairly easy.
iSave customer service-Best!1/14/2010
I had the best customer service I had since very long time, from a reseller called " isave.com". I had to return the product for some reason. I called in the isave.com customer service, and a gentleman called Mark who was my customer service representative gladly refunded my purchase price in full. The customer service gets a 5 STAR!
Great little camera12/7/2009
Can't beat the price. I was amazed with the quality of the video and audio recording. It also works with Vista home premium. You'll have fun reading the instructions, obviously the person that wrote them has a very limited command of the English language. Luckily you don't need them. You only have one button to turn it on or off and to control still or motion pictures. It shows up in "My Computer" as an additional drive (just like a USB drive.)Where you can delete the images. It doesn't appear that you can change the rechargeable battery if necessary. But, again who cares. If I get 6 months out of this camera I would be more than satisfied. I plan on keeping it in the car. It would be great to have in the event of an accident or any issues with other drivers.
The video quality is not that good, but for a pen recorder it is acceptable.
