Spy cams Review:
- Filming quality under low light conditions (indoor)
- Sound quality to understand conversations
- Battery autonomy
- Recording time and perhaps loop recording feature
- It should have no blinking lights, no displayed USB ports.
Keychains are expected to be mobile so that you can position it several times to film a situation. From what we have seen it is required to be quite close to the person you talk to in order to have a good audio and understand the conversation. Most of the time, if the person is 6 foot from you, you may not hear this person. That’s why you should check the audio quality of the keychain you buy. The Keychain spycams are usually the spycams with the lowest audio and video quality.
Spy pen cameras:
Spy Pen cams are also a good solution because it’s an object of everyday’s life. Nevertheless, we noticed that all the spy cam pens have a major downside. Most of them come with a status light. It is obvious somebody is recording. If you put a black tape on it is going to be obvious as well. Many of them have a poor sound recording quality. Whatever the brand of the pen, the issues are always the same: limited autonomy and poor sound quality. Spycam pens can be useful but don’t expect too much of it. The pen below has a 60 minutes recording autonomy.
Spycam alarm clocks:
The Spycam alarm clocks are the most efficient way to record any situations. Usually they microphones can peak a conversation in a whole room. For sure, the only downside related to an alarm clock is that it is not expected to be mobile. If you move, your interlocutor will see it your intent. Some of those alarm clocks have a loop recorder which is really useful because you don’t need to start the recording. You just need to extract the recording when you think you caught something important “on tape”. Unfortunately, it is a static object.
Spy Eyeglasses cameras:
Eyeglasses are really good if you wear some because usually when you talk to a woman, she is not far away from you. Wearing eyeglasses with spy cam is great to record a conversation and also film the behavior of the woman in front of you. The downside of spy sunglasses is the thickness of the spectacle frames. The one I bought (Joycam see below) looked too thick.
USB charger camera:
This one is also good. It looks like a smartphone charger and features motion detection. The little pinhole is the camera lens. You can plug it into the wall and also plug your smartphone into it just like it would be a regular smartphone charger. Then, if someone moves in front of it, it will start recording the scene. The 32Gb storage is quite useful in this case.
