Video I shot with a 13$ micro dv bubble gam camera vol possibilities are endless

I got this cam off eBay after watching a video on Youtube (below) where dude mounted it to his bike. It is literally the size of a bubble gum wrapper and has a clip that you can latch it on to your shirt or whatever.

Resolution is 720 x 480 and sound pickup is way better than I expected. It has no internal memory (writes to MicroSD) and also takes photos and works as a webcam. I'm not saying it should be your best camera you own, but imagine some of the %!*$ you can do with a camera this small and discrete (reviews said the key remote fob one was better for stealthy use).

I was going to have somebody put it on their shirt or wear a headband and make a 1st person highlight film. My video sucks because I was holding the camera by the USB cable so it was dangling, but again no image stabilization so there is some of that Blair Witch feel.

For a better implementation of the same idea, there's the Veho Micro DV Camcorder for 70$ which shoots in HD and is only slightly bigger and does have native image stabilization and comes with a 2gig microsd. I'll probably buy that one too, but I'm going to put that video in a different post to avoid confusion.

Yea it's USB rechargable. I don't know how long they last, I think one review on Youtube said like 40 minutes. I don't think it'd last a long time though. ONe kind of downside, when recording there is a flashing red light so if you're using it for "spy" purposes in the dark you might have to cover that up, use electric tape I guess.

I guess this is the car remote looking one, much better for spy purpose I agree since it can just be laying there due to the better camera placement.
