This is a really useful and practical little product. The fact that the pen looks like a pen and indeed works perfectly as a pen means that it is fully acceptable in meetings and everyday use. It is not intrusive nor offensive. But helpful and conveniently sized and well designed.

This pencam is superb, two modes to take still photos or video with sound. The Picture and sound quality is very good and can be easily exported to you computer (PC or Mac). The camera is totally discreet and I would defy anyone to pick it out as a pencam unless they have one too! Protect yourself from the lies others may try to tell, it is a great security device for your everyday use.

Can't hear anything except a bunch of blurb blap, any loud noise sounds even worse.. Lots of echo indoors making it hard to make out what is being said. Video isn't too bad for the size of the lens.

Agree sound is terrible especially if you have the pen in your shirt pocket and you talk from being behind the pen, sound is too loud and distorted, no option to adjust microphone. On days when its windy, the wind cuts out the sound of your voice. The video mode: bad a night time, you need to use a torch or be in a lit area to be able to pick up a good video. you have to move slowly to stop videos from the blur factor. In saying this. I use this Pencam at work on Security Patrol, it's a lot better than no footage and sound.

Poor design. Good picture - if you hold it perfectly still.

Very shaky image if you move even the slightest bit. It is pretty much worthless as a shirt-pocket covert cam. The unit I received would turn on but wouldn't go into record unless you turned the unit off and on a few times. Not practical. Very difficult to aim. The lens should be more wide angle. It seems like I'm recording either someone's chest or the top of their head from four feet away. I couldn't load the included software CD because my MacBook Pro has no CD reader. I'm disappointed you can't just download the utilities from their website. Overall, you could stick this in your pen/pencil cup on your desk and try your best to aim it. But it is really a big disappointment for a hidden camera while you're walking.
