A mini spy camera needs certain features to be worthwhile, and KJB Security Products understands those features. The manufacturer has been making security cameras, hidden cameras and self-contained spy cameras for more than 20 years. The company offers the Mini Camcorder that’s a good choice for anyone conducting covert operations or someone who simply wants to record extreme sports in action.
The small spy camera weighs less than 2 ounces and measures about 2 inches long, which means it can easily fit in your pocket, the palm of your hand or your purse. It’s also inconspicuous enough to hide among other items and likely not be detected. It records color video at a decent resolution and with 30 frames per second, so you can identify people in the recorded footage, which is especially important when you use this spy camera for security.
This mini spy cam stamps footage with a time and date, so you can easily find a specific time period of video that you want to view. This mini DVR spy cam comes with a 4GB microSD memory card, but it can support up to a 16GB memory card. The lower resolution means you can store about 30 minutes of footage per 1GB of recording time, so you could theoretically store up to eight hours of footage.
The built-in lithium-ion battery is rechargeable by USB cable, which is included in the box. One charge lasts about two hours. You also get a carrying case and neck strap for this camera, which is helpful when you use it as a mini camcorder. A mounting clip is useful if you plan to use this as a mini spy cam. It has sound-activated recording as an option, so if you prefer to set this camera up for security purposes, it won’t record a bunch of useless video – it only starts recording when sound triggers it.
When you’re ready to view the footage, you simply plug the included USB cable into the mini spy camera and your computer. You can transfer the footage while your camera’s battery charges. The fixed lens has a 62-degree viewing angle, which is enough to see what’s directly in front of the camera.
KJB Security Products made the Mini Camcorder for a variety of uses. As a personal camera, it’s a good choice for recording short, fun outings and not have to lug around a larger camera. As a spy cam, it’s small enough to be undetectable, and you can set it up to record only when voices can be picked up by the camera.
