What are the latest and greatest developments surrounding spy pen cameras for the month of March, 2012? Well, for both Canada, USA, Europe, Australia and the rest of the world, the answer is: not much. The best reviewed pen cameras still offer 720P resolution with variable expandable memory including 2GB, 8GB and the most popular 32GB options. These devices are powered via a battery or external source depending on the make and model. Some plug directly into the wall via a USB outlet, this is also used to transfer data from the spy pen to your PC or Mac computer. Speaking of which, the best spy pen models are compatible with the major operating systems (windows and Mac osX). Most professional offices these days use both systems, not to mention the prevalence of apple related portable device. So do to the fragmentation of the market in terms of operating systems, it is impotent to purchase a spy pen that has dual compatibility.
As stated in previous articles, major components of the spy pen include the lens, wich is usually a fish-eye. This allows for a wider viewing angle of the subject you wish to covertly capture on film. In addition, memory is the next major component, the higher, the better, and added to this; expandable memory is better than permanent internal as it provides you with a significantly larger number of options. The sensor on the pen cam is also of importance. Sensors with a low lux level fair far better in dim lighting conditions and this is an ideal feature for a hidden spy camera as one can imagine, A motion activated spypen is an equally useful device if you wish to establish a permanent surveillance solution. These can be placed in your home or at work, just remember that from a legal perspective, no device can be placed in an area that has a reasonable expectation of privacy such as an employee change room or a bathroom. Software is also key for the best spy pens, what we mean by this is transferring data is a quick and seamless process. Video editing of the footage can be done via a variety of 3rd party software already on the market. Currently, the larget user of hidden spy cams are security, law enforcement, and private investigators, HOWEVER and very large and growing every-day citizen body is beginning to utilize these devices for their own purposes. Also important is to ensure that there is no flashing light on any of these devices. If there is, then you will risk being observed when it is your prerogative to go undetected. For this month, spy pens market value remains roughly the same, with the top end models coming in at well over $250 each and the typical cheap Chinese knockoff remaining on the bottom end of the spectrum with low quality specs for around $25.
