(NOTE: The greenish flickering in the video sample from the pen showed up after encoding in Final Cut and uploading to Youtube, this normally will not show up on video taken from the pen. ALSO, if you want to view the video above in HD you will need to adjust the quality setting on the video (click settings button in lower right hand corner of video))
Take video in true HD with the HD720P recording lens with NO interpolation. Many camera pens you see on the market are not a true HD and use a process called interpolation to artificially "upscale" a lower resolution video to make it look closer to HD quality. With the OmniVision CMOS sensor chip (website: www.ovt.com) video is recorded in a TRUE HD without any upscaling.
You will never have to worry about running out of space with the Micro SD card slot which makes the memory expandable, you can buy the pen buy itself or add an 8GB or 16GB card to your order (it will support up to a 32GB card). When you fill up the memory you can easily erase and start over, or you can just put another one in! You won't need any cables or software to view your recordings on your computer, this pen has a USB connector built-in so you can plug it in directly, just like a flash drive. This pen is a "plug-n-play" device and works with MAC and Windows computers.
The pen has a sleek durable metal casing and is not too thick so it fits comfortably in your hand. You can start recording video with the touch of the button on the top of the pen. The indicator light on the pen will flash a few times to show you recording has started but then turns off while recording.
|TRUE 720P Wide screen High Definition Video (AVI Format)
We are truly impressed with the video quality of this pen. It records at a resolution of 1280x720 at 30 frames per second!
|NO Flashing Light
Most "spy pens" on the market have a bright LED light flashes while it records, doesn't seem too "spy like" to me. This pen has NO flashing light while recording.
Sleek, durable, and professional design. No markings or brand names printed on the pen.
|Micro SD Card Slot
HD Videos files take up alot of memory. Expandable memory is an important feature of this pen because you will never be limited by memory size. You can add an 8GB or 16GB card to your order.
With the ability to stamp the date and time on your videos, you can keep track of when each was recorded.
Pictures are taken at resolution of 1600x1200 with surprising clarity and are in the JPEG format.

The pen seems a fair deal for the price. The video is decent for a pinhole camera. I have used it several times and find its operation straightforward. No frills and no unnecessary functions. The body/barrel is of solid construction, well balanced and a comfortable weight that makes it seem unlike a cheap plastic office pen. For me, the wall charger was a good addition; I don't have the pen hanging out of a USB port while I charge. The only significant drawback (so far) is the date/time stamp. Instructions came with the pen explaining how to load a date/time stmp, but it does not work as advertised after many efforts. For me, this is an important feature, and unless the seller can resolve, it might be going back.

I have been using this pen recorder for about two weeks on duty as a police officer. It has help up really well. The video quality is top notch in the day light. For night te recording I would suggest some type of light be present. The audio is clear almost all of the time, unless the person is a good ways away. Really not a problem because lost of the conversations are in front of you. It has saved my butt a few times on bogus complaints. Would highly recommend. The pen quality is also very good and the writing portion of the pen is really good as well. You can trust this company not sell you crap like on eBay for $20.00

Buying a spy pen from these guys is not like buying one on ebay or amazon (which I have found usually don't work).
I have used this pen almost every day for a year now and have never had any trouble with it. Works perfect everytime, very user friendly and has good picture and sound.

Pen works perfectly smooth, and I have to make a special mention for customer support: simply the best I ever met. They're quick, nice and honest.

Rating anything is not very easy. When you pay $15 dollars for something that sells between $10 and $400 you will generally get what you paid for. (not always true) anyway this works great and is well worth $100 I would recommend it to anyone it has worked far beyond what you can expect for $100.

I have used it 5 times now and it has worked flawlessly. Picture & Sound are very good. I would say it is worth the money, it is medal and seems to be solid. I would recommend it to my friends.

If you want to take video indoors or in low light you should think about something else. Does very well in good light and calms video shake.

I love this pen. Simple to use and it works!I wanted a pen cam and first tried one of those eBay specials for about $20. That pen worked well 1 out of every 20 tries, at best. Then I got one an HD90 and love it. It works EVERY time! I use it at work for my protection. I'm a police officer. Other cops are seeing it, and they want one! It takes great video and good sound. Only grumble would be in low light, it's very poor. One day there will be a pen-cam that works as well as this one, with great low light/auto light adjustment and a wide angle lens to get more in. Then it will be perfect. But rest assured, this one is close!

Pen works a advertised. Picture quality for Photgraphs and Video recording is great. I got a 32 GB card just so I never will run out of space. It is easy to use and there are no blinking lights is audio recording or video recording mode. The video recording mode will break the recording into 20 minute files FYI but this doesn't bother me. I had contacted customer service a couple times and they have been wonderfully helpful. Tom is great. Thanks
