Can't afford a GoPro? Pick this up for $14

I just ordered one of these a couple days ago, it's called an MD80 Spycam, should be here soon. They go for around $14 shipped on ebay, just go here

http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=md8...286.m270.l1313

It's a chinese replica of one made by a different company and sold on amazon for around $80

The Good:
- Super tiny, mount it anywhere with some double sided tape
- 2 hour battery life
- Records onto MicroSD card (I think around 30 minutes per gigabyte)
- Pretty decent audio/video quality if mounted in the right spot
- Charges with a standard usb cable with built in rechargeable battery
- Can be used as a webcam if you download the drivers for it

The Bad
- Has a permanent date stamp at the bottom that you can't remove unless you crop it
- Directions are in engrish so they really make no sense, but there's several youtube videos documenting how to use it
- If you mount it somewhere that gets tons of vibration, the video gets all wavy looking, so it's recommended sticking it on your helmet or inside.
- Night time recording like many small cameras sucks
- Ships from Hong Kong, takes a couple weeks to get here

Sample videos:

This one was clipped to the guys baseball cap


Mounted inside the helmet


Mounted inside the intake duct (these are the vibrations I was talking about)


I'm not endorsing this product in any way.. just thought for $14 you can't really go wrong lol.

It's not bad but remember...........$14 dollars. I paid and received it 4 days later from NY.
