DVR Pen Camera Recorder Captures Audio & Video

By Andrew Liszewski

While it appears to be considerably larger than most pens, I think if you were discreet enough you could probably get away with using this DVR Pen Recorder. It comes with either 2GB or 4GB of flash memory that allows it to capture up to 30 hours of audio and video. (With the 4GB model.) The resolution is just 352×288, which is what you’d expect from a spy pen that wasn’t created by the CIA, NSA or MI6. But since those organizations don’t sell their custom gear in their gift shops, or even have gift shops for that matter, this is as good as you’re going to find online.

The DVR Pen Recorder also pulls apart to reveal a standard USB 2 connection which allows you to transfer the videos to your PC, and charge the internal battery. And while it can capture about 30 hours of video, the battery will actually only last for about 2 hours. The 2GB model will set you back $199.95 while the 4GB is $249.95, and both are available from BrickHouseSecurity.com.

    Too bad the batteries only last 2 hours…

    True, the battery may only last 2 hours, but who is going to be recording with this for more than2 hours anyways. It should be long enough for what you’ll need to do.

    can I see a demo video recorded by this Pen DVR?

  • Dave

    I’ve been playing with this for a couple of days now. First of all, the longest record time I gotten is 56 minutes before the battery gave out. The On/Off button is very delicate and tends to not work reliably.

    That said, for a “Fat Pen” it does a pretty good job as an audio/video recorder. The frame rate is only 15 frames per second, so the best results are obtained by setting the pen in a stationary holder. Wearing it generates a lot of blur motion.

    Warts aside, it does work, and the quality is acceptable.

    does anyone know how to download media from the pen?

  • Deekay

    How is your experience of its sound quality?

    The manufacturer's wholesaler price is $USD 32.99. If you order 10 pieces and sell the others to your friends you'll get it for free.

    Have pancam for 6 months now, video quality is OK, needs a lot of light to have a clear image. Audio is very bad… Battery died on me this morning, cam won't even turn on :-( Still works as a memory stick… I don't think a replacement battery can be found…

    Wow! this is unique gadget. I'm interested in this with cool features. I'm looking also for a 3ccd Camcorder. I'm a bit interested in this. Thanks for sharing this post.

    Vidoe is clear and nice but the audio is no use. Don't work at all, just noise.
    Kazushi, I think you can buy replacement batteries on radioshack or some similar shop.
