Swann DVR-421 PenCam Mini Video Camera & Recorder

The Swann PenCam DVR Mini Video Camera & Recorder is living proof the pen is mightier than the sword! The stylish-looking casing with metallic gold trim and pocket clip holds an executive-quality black ballpoint pen with hidden talents, as it contains a pinhole video camera so small you almost can’t see that it’s there. Use the PenCam to shoot AVI video files at 640 x 480 pixel resolution or JPEG still images at 1280 x 1024 photo resolution, all at the push of a button. PenCam’s intelligent design includes 2GB of built-in internal memory that can store over an hour of video footage.

Viewing or copying recorded files is easy, just unscrew the top of the pen to reveal a USB plug that can connect straight into your computer’s USB port. No special cables, no adapters, no drivers, no worries! Transferring files is easy as the PenCam can be used as an everyday USB thumb drive, able to store a myriad of file formats without fuss. PenCam’s 2GB capacity avoids the trappings of 4GB and 8GB models by providing the optimal mix of recording capacity, battery life, and operating speed. What’s more, you can use the USB port to recharge the pen’s lithium-ion battery to give up to 90 minutes of video recording time before needing recharging again.

PenCam is fully compatible with Windows XP, Vista and 7 and, once recorded, files can be played back on all the popular video playing software formats including Windows Media Player, Quick Time, Real Player, VLC, WinDVD and PowerDVD. Once you have backed-up your video and photo files you can email them to friends or upload them to your favorite content sharing or social networking websites including YouTube, Facebook, MySpace and more.
