Attach this secret spy camera to your shirt and no one will be any the wiser! Continuing JTT's great series of miniature cams, the Chobi Cam Smile is a smiley pin badge, or is it? In fact it's a mini camera in disguise! The camouflaged gadget will be able to capture happy family moments when you least expect it, as well as at moments that call for a more, well, subtle approach to your movie directing.
It really is just the size of an average pin badge, plus it comes with a useful flexible "arm" that you can use to position the camera around your home, or even in your car. Here are some sample still photos taken with the camera. Also check out the sample videos at the bottom of the page!
Despite its tiny size you can take up to 60 minutes of video with this camera, plus stills and even use it as a voice recorder. The internal battery charges up via USB and then you are ready to go.
