Little guy

William P., Newegg
5 February 2008
  • Summary: buy 2+, and a RCA video switcher, and you got a nice little set up.
  • Pros: For under 20$ it is an amazing little dude. read the tech specs,. this camera has only 370 lines of resolution.. that is bacially a 320x240 based camera. so if you view this on TV, it will be slightly lower quality. great for a home or business looking for a spy cam to hook up to a DVD recorder, ...
  • Cons: The LEDs on the front are cosmetic. they do nothing, and this camera has little to no low light sensitivity. this camera needs at least 4 lux. which is a 12x14 room lit with 2 or 3 75 watt bulbs. great for a home or business looking for a spy cam to hook up to a DVD recorder, dvr, or VCR,.

Nice quality

  • Summary: Focus is easy to bump, but some thick lube fixes that.
  • Pros: Excellent vid quality for the size. IR lamps are bright for size. Accepts voltages from 6 through 12, at 200 ma. Adjustable focus. Signal is strong enough to run through 200+ ft of RG-59 cable.
  • Cons: Somwhat fuzzy even if focus is adjusted.

  • Summary: I bought it for a co-worker and he said it works but is fuzzy. I gave it 3 eggs because it works but I have a feeling it's not that great of a camera. I build computers so I'm kind of out of my relm here.
  • Pros: It works.
  • Cons: I don't know.

Great little camera!

Anonymous, Newegg
15 November 2006
  • Summary: The camera mounted perfectly under the visor of my HJC offroad helmet. Paired it with a portable DVR and I have a great little helmet cam with audio.
  • Pros: The camera works beautifully. Image quality is as clear as a 380 line camera 5 times it's size and twice the price. Audio works, and so do the IRs. The camera has a very small footprint, suprised me when I recieved it. Powers off of a 9volt battery for at least a few hours so far.
  • Cons: The dc adapter did not work, but that didn't matter to me since I was not using it. The IR's only range about 5-10 feet, which is expected for their size and power.

Poor video quality

Steven R., Newegg
20 October 2006
  • Summary: Spend just five dollars more here for a tiny, all-weather bullet cam with very good image quality.
  • Pros: Low cost, has a built-in microphone, narrower view angle than most.
  • Cons: Low-quality CMOS sensor and electronics cause rolling picture and terrible video quality. Worse than watching a show on a old TV with RABBIT EAR antennas during a thunderstorm.
