Which spy pen is the best choice to buy?
Question by mark.deguia: Which spy pen is the best choice to buy?
Can someone please give me a good opinion on which is best because I’m very ignorant on technical stuff like this. I dont really know much about this. I want to be able to take good quality video in secret.
They all have the same format whih is AVI so i dont need to worry about that.
They all use the same video encoding so I dont need to worry about that.
The 2nd & 3rd seem to have a higher video resolution and FPS so I’m assuming that the video quality on them is better than the first one.
Someone needs to tell me which is better for image ratio. I want to be able to watch this on my computer or LED HD TV. Mostly the computer but thats good if its also great on a widescreen tv. The first one is 16:9 and the 2nd & 3rd ones are 4:3. I think 4:3 is letter box so it has those black lines at the sides. And 16:9 doesnt which is better. I think the 1st one is better for image ratio. But i’m just making an educated guess on what I know which isnt a lot.
The audio format I have little interest in because I am only focused on video quality.
What the heck is interface supposed to mean? It says that they are all USB. But the 2nd one is Mini 5 pin USB.
So storage is how much video it can hold. I think the 2nd one is best for storage. The 2nd one uses a micro SD card and it can hold up to 16 gb which sounds good. The 1st and 3rd both use 4gb Nand Flash which to me translates to “it can hold 4gb worth of video”. I dont really think thats really important because I can save video from the pen into the computer cant I?
They all use the same battery type.
I’m guessing that they all have the same working time which is about 90 min. I dont know what working time is. Does that mean how long it will stay on before running out of power?
Time/date stamp sounds like it can record the time and date when it is recording video. I think only the 1st one can do that.
I use a PC and they all support it.
So um after I record my video with any of these pens how would I view it on my computer? Would it have a USB connector or something that I use to connect the pen to the computer then watch the video?
After reviewing the technical info my 1st choice would be the 1st pen because even though its video resolution is lower than the other 2 its not by that much and its still HD quality. And after looking at 2 youtube videos comparing the 2 spy pens I couldnt really tell a difference between the quality of the videos from the 2 different pens. It has I think a better Image ratio then the other 2. I want to be able to watch it on TV but mostly on my computer and be ahppy with what I’m seeing( I dont want black lines). Again the video resolution between the cameras is 1280 by 720 and the others 1280 by 960. So only a difference of 240 um…. pixels. They are called pixels right?
So anyway thats my question my comparison and my initial first choice of the 3 pens. My 1st choice is the 1st pen. 2nd choice is the 2nd pen. and 3rd choice is the 3rd pen. I’m open to people’s ideas though on which I should get because I’m no technology expert. Please tell me which you would recommend and why. I will be interested in reading all of your answers comments and ideas. the person with the best answer will get 10 points.
Oh and the 2 youtube videos I watched were here
