Thanko Spy Button Camera Adds Sound Recording

Thanko Spy Button Digital Camera

USB gadget manufacturer Thanko updated its video camera button with new features such as sound recording.  Now, not only your can disguise a spy camera as a shirt button, you can be assured that the conversation between you and the drug dealer is recorded-just in case you volunteer as a police informer.

The spy camera can shoot videos in AVI format with 720 x 480 resolution at 30 frames per second, as well as still photos in JPEG form measuring 1,280 x 1,024 resolution.  It weighs a mere 20 grams and runs on lithium-ion battery that can last for up to 70 minutes video footages.  You can simply push a button, and pretend you are fixing your shirt, to start recording.  However, it does not have internal memory, so you need a hand microSD card (up to 16GB) to save your spy files.

All files can be transferred to PC with the help of a USB cord, but so far this spy camera only supports Windows XP, Vista, and 7.

The Thanko Spy Button Camera is only available in Japan for 4,980 yen (about US$55).  International buyers may want to try importer sites, but expect a higher price due to shipping and taxes.
