Product Description

This thumb-sized cam has got to be in the running for title of the Smallest Video Camera in the World! Yet despite its dinky stature, it still packs a punch in the recording stakes! The Mini DV Camera records both audio and video in AVI files and saves them to a micro SD card for computer playback, giving you a maximum capacity of 16GB. Considering its size, the frame rate of 30fps and resolution of 720 x 480 pixels is pretty impressive. It features a sound-activated mode, takes pictures as well as video footage, and performs well under low light conditions! The Mini DV Camera is both wireless and lightweight - good for undercover surveillance - and has a range of clips and brackets provided to attach it to various objects for action footage! Just one charge gives up to 2 hours of record time and 250 hours of standby time.It's also really easy to operate - an ideal choice for both amateurs and experienced users alike. Product Description The Mini DV Camera records both audio and video in AVI files and saves them to a micro SD card (not included) for computer playback, giving you a maximum capacity of 16GB. Considering its size, the frame rate of 30fps and resolution of 720 x 480 pixels is pretty impressive. Not only that, it features a motion-activated mode, takes pictures as well as video footage, and performs well under low light conditions! Not bad for a device that's about the same size as a cigarette lighter! Mini DV Camera is both wireless and lightweight, it's a discreet solution to undercover surveillance - just pop it in an unobtrusive place (it's small enough to fit into a pack of chewing gum, so that shouldn't be hard!) and it'll record everything that's going on within its line of sight.

This "Mini DV" is not the Muvi branded one by any stretch of the imagination. And the included instructions are about as much good as a chocolate fire guard. But I'll do my best to help those struggling with it, you'll be surprised at it's capabilities.

Firstly - Charge it up! At a wall socket (not via USB) until the Red light (charging) stops flashing and you have a solid Blue light (charged). Once it has received a initial charge you can charge via USB later.

Secondly - SD card! Via your computer Format your chosen SD card to "FAT32" and NOT "NTFS", once that's done pop it into your camera brass contacts of the card facing the same way the lens does.

Thirdly - Install your drivers if you are having trouble with the driver disk as I did a quick google of "Mini DV D001" got me the drivers needed. Once installed connect your camera to the USB and it should find it as a removable drive.

Fourthly - Editing the time stamp. You will need to open a new document in "Note pad" and put in this.

[date]
2012/06/22
12:00:00=

Once you've edited the right time and date save it as TAG.txt and place the file on the SD card or save it to the SD card the choice is yours.

That should be the fiddly bit out of the way, now mount your camera where you want to. One press of the power switch should give you a Blue light indicating "ON" same thing to turn it off.

One press of the top button starts recording (be warned the lights go out when you do this :-/ so you don't realise it's recording) by pressing this button again stops recording. Simple really.

I purchased this camera to record my motorbike journeys and it did the job OK.
The video quality is good enough to film the traffic but it can be quite tedious when setting the camera in the correct position and angle. Without video preview, there's a lot of trial and error. I kept getting too much sky, too much pavement or too much dashboard in the car, 3/5 times I would get it right.

Video looks zoomed in. Filming someone who is sat 2 metres away looks as if you've got the camera right in their face. Also, riding behind a car in front of you looks as though your tailgating on the video. registration plates are readable though. No point filming at night on roads without lamp posts though or places without a light source.

Didn't really test audio that much to comment on it, it worked is all I can say.

For those having problems with the battery lasting, after a little researched I found charging it from a computer will take a long time. I charged using my Iphone USB AC charger and it fully charged within an hour.

Instruction booklet didn't really help as the colours for the lights were wrong. I got blue and red lights but the book says yellow and red?

When turning on you get a blue light.
When recording, you get a flashing red light which is hard to see when looking from an angle.
When charging, you get a blue light with a flashing red light - cannot record at same time.
When fully charged the light stays blue and no red flashing light.

Overall I think the camera is OK, not great but does the job. I think I'll keep it as an extra cam but I invested more money into the Contour Roam which I'm quite happy with and was worth the money for me.

You get exactly what you would expect. It's cheap so I was not expecting much and that is exactly what I got, not much. Locating and removing a micro SD card was difficult and after 3 uses it failed to lock in position. When charged it runs for about 2 hours but after 3 charges both lights came on a stayed on and it would no longer record, not sure if this was due to the micro SD card no longer locking in position properly or some other fault. At under £10 it's not worth the effort of returning it. Picture quality was also what you would expect, i.e. wouldn't amaze you with it's definition but considering the price I thought it was very good in decent light. Obviously not so good as the light got poorer. Would have been perfect for what I wanted it for had it kept working but it didn't. I may have been unlucky and got a dud but at under a tenner I reckon there would be quite a few duds knocking about. Wasn't expecting much, but thought it was worth a gamble at the price. I lost.

Addition - Matrix Discounts contacted me out of the blue and offered a replacement after reading my rating, this was without me requesting a replacement (I didn't think it was worth the bother at under £10). Obviously they have faith in the product and a first class customer relations ethic. With that in mind I have upper my rating from 1 to 3 stars - assuming you get it from Matrix Discounts.

The good things:
- arrived quickly and well packaged
- not bad picture quality for such a small and cheap thing

The bad things:
- worked for 8 minutes then stopped recording even though the recording light was flashing
- next time worked for 20 minutes then stopped and would not turn off
- resetting helped the turning off problem but only temporarily
- next day same problems: cutting off the recording, random switching on/off
- after few days of going through countless google searches on how to cure the problems I thought I was getting somewhere but then the power button got stuck inside the case and would not come out. I managed to get it out, then it happened again, and again, and 3rd time. That was the final straw that broke the camel's back. The whole thing landed in the bin. 8 pounds down the drain.
