Hey they're very good quality pictures for a micro cam. Out of interest, what did you use to stick it to the car?

I bought one for 1p on ebay last week...............

(postage was £6.50 though )

I plan to tape it to my rc glider which can fly up to 2,500ft high so should give me some good aerial shots of the surrounding countryside.

One word of caution though..........

My mate also bought one of these cameras and when he connected it to his pc, his internet security found a trojan horse in the camera's root directory. So be careful when you connect up these mini cams to your pc, might be a good idea to run a scan on it first.

Really doubt it was any sort of virus, sometimes anti virus scanners mistake memory key software for a virus and flag them as containing trojans.

The camera doesn't have any storage, it needs an SD card.

I was there when he plugged it into the usb port on his laptop and Norton internet flashed up that it had found a trojan horse on the "mass media storage device", i.e. usb camera. His keychain camera came with a 2GB SD card.

My camera appears to be ok. Brilliant little gadget btw. I left it running on my desk in work when I went to lunch and it picked up on the "ladies" in my office picking their noses when they thought they were alone and unobserved .
