I watched A LOT of detective shows as a kid. I loved to see things like all the hidden gadgets and passages ways in Batman and Nancy Drew books. I remember seeing things like this in “spy shops” and wishing I could afford the hundreds of dollars they cost.
This is a working pen and it does come with two ink refills, which I thought was awesome. Video quality is amazing to me, but please remember I am comparing this pen to 1990.
*Do not really use this to record people in public. It most states, it’s probably a crime.
I bought this in case I need to record something in my car urgently.
From what I have tested, the video quality is good and runs smoothly on VLC player. The pen is quite inconspicuous enough to be hidden well, and the pen actually does write quite smoothly.
You will never know what might happen when you are behind the wheel (video proof speaks more volume than someone's word when you need it), and I think this spy pen is a perfect item for the situation.
Of course I am considering getting a webcam as well, but one step at a time for me.
One thing to note is that this item does not come with a memory card. Many people have few lying around but many also don't. So make sure you purchase a memory card as well when you purchase this product.
