Mini DV Camera

Click to enlarge

This thumb-sized cam has got to be in the running for title of the Smallest Video Camera in the World! Yet despite its dinky stature, it still packs a punch in the recording stakes!

The Mini DV Camera records both audio and video in AVI files and saves them to a micro SD card for computer playback, giving you a maximum capacity of 16GB. Considering its size, the frame rate of 30fps and resolution of 720 x 480 pixels is pretty impressive. It features a sound-activated mode, takes video footage and performs well under low light conditions!

The Mini DV Camera is both wireless and lightweight - good for undercover surveillance - and has a range of clips and brackets provided to attach it to various objects for action footage!  Just one charge gives up to 2 hours of record time and 250 hours of standby time and it's also really easy to operate - an ideal choice for both amateurs and experienced users alike.

 

>> An absolutely tiny digital video camera
>> Perfect for discreet surveillance or as an action cam
>> Records video and audio; supports PC cameras
>> Supports AVI format
>> HD image recording in low light
>> Sound-activated record function
>> Maximum capacity of 16GB with micro SD card (not included)
>> 30 frames per second
>> 720 x 480 pixel resolution; 320 x 240 output
>> Charges via USB connection (cable included, USB 1.1, 2.0)
>> Built-in rechargeable lithium battery for up to 2 hours recording time and 250 hours standby time
>> Suitable for ages 12 years +

I have just bought mini DV Camera. i have followed the instructions but it seen not working. I went back to shop and i ws told to download driver compatible with my mac. Could you please let me know how can i make it work (charge and record video)?

I have emailed you over the driver. Many thanks

i have no disc-drive so i need to download the installation disc which is not on your list of drivers

my e-mail: greenlag12@gmail.com

thank you.

You're email appears to have bounced back?

Acting very strangely - where is the reset button ?

To reset the device please simply turn off and on again. Thanks

Hi there,

Connected up the device, installed the drivers and it's working great, but the AVI playback is failing across all media players because I'm missing codecs. Have tried re-installing a few times and it has made no difference.

Can you disclose which codecs I need, so I can go hunt them down?

Cheers,
Matt

Hi Matt, I'm currently looking into this for you. Apologies for the delay. Many thanks

i am using windows 7 32 bit and the camera is not being recognised by the computer. the drivers do not appear to work and they are not on the page you have linked to many of the other users, how can i go about fixing solving the problem. thank you for your time.

I've emailed you over the updated driver today. Thanks

I have tried turning it on, both before and after connecting to the computer, with and without the sd card in. With the sd card in, I get the auto-play box which allows me to view the files on the card. With no sd card nothing happens, and either way, it is not running as a web cam. (Have tried checking it with skype, no feed coming in) What else can I do? Or is the camera faulty?

The Mini DV Camera can be used as a PC webcam. When you connect the Mini DV Camera as a webcam for the first time, please use the CD provided and install. Connect it to the computer and press the record button, the U disk will disappear and then a standard webcam device will appear. You can now use the Mini DV Camera as a webcam. Note:please turn the device on before you connect it to your computer.

I assume that you DO/HAVE NOT supplied the SAD card with the camera ...why is this ???... as it is seen that the camera will NOT function without it....if this is the case where can I get one from and what do I ask for, what spec and what size

It requires a Micro SD card which is readily available online in a variety of memory sizes.

I'm trying to use the camera as a webcam, and the instructions are very unclear, although it's obviously something the camera should do. Can you help please? N

Hi! Simply turn the Mini DV Camera ON and connect it to your computer. It is a plug and play device so should be recognised instantly.

Hi

I've bought one of these cameras and got a mini CD for installing the driver. Problem is my laptop does not accept mini CD... Is there any other possibility to get the drivers/software ?

Hi.
I have had this camera for a few months but not used it. Now I cannot find the operating instructions.Also is there a software update available. Can you help?
Regards
Kevin

Hi Kevin, I have emailed you the instructions this morning. Thanks

I recently purchased a mini DV Camera off play.com although it appears to have been original from yourselves (as all packaging states thumbsupworld.co.uk). I received the camera and a driver disk, however as I have a notebook laptop there is no CD drive, therefore I cannot use the disk.

Is there anywhere I can download the driver softwear for the camera as it wont work otherwise.

Thanks

John

The CD only includes the software to view the videos which can be downloaded from here: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ simply plug the camera into your computers USB and it'll run like a USB flash drive.

Can you turn off the leds lights?

Hi, When the device is charging a green light will remain illuminated, while a yellow light will constantly flash. Once the Mini DV is fully charged the yellow light will remain illuminated. When recording, once the video has been saved the green and yellow light will both illuminate again.

Supplied 'Driver' mini-CD is empty

Hi, could you email support@thumbsupuk.com and i'll get a replacement for you. Thanks

Camera Lens Cup - Black

The camera lens cup is a very unique. Product. I had never seen anything like it until I got one as a present. The design makes it look exactly like a camera lens and everyone says how cool it is. The lid stops the hot drink from getting cold or you could use it to hold biscuits. Overall I think that the cup was a very good idea.

I bought this wallet because I am a big fan of Pulp Fiction and have been for a number of years! I just thought I'd buy a piece of merchandise to show it! Plus the fact that I needed a new wallet. It has a nice, real leather finish with enough slots for all my cards and a see through pocket for my provisional driving license. Very happy with my purchase.

I've been pretty impressed with the overall quality and usefulness of this little gadget. Use at the beach (personally though I HATE sand!) or around the pool (but that might be rude?) so to be honest I've been using this to play my iTunes; song and movie collections! Extremely handy when I was decorating my daughters room and even while doing the washing up (Aha! Another place with water!!!)

Dual Power Bank
23-06-14
Small compact portable power pack, capable of charging mobile phones, iPods iPads etc 2/3 times or a couple do devices at the same time via the dual USB output ports, on a single charge. Massive internal battery of 6600mAh & led display to show the remaining charge in this tiny pack. The pack itself can be full recharged in around 3 hours. Comes with USB lead and several attachments to connect to many devices. I don't know if you can charge via the USB of your computer, but you most definitely can with a USB charging plug, like supplied with iPhones/iPads. So far very happy with this purchase & paid 30 on a Easyjet flight rrp 40

Space Coaster

Great product! As part of my University course I converted to of your space coasters into midi sequencers. I put to metal contacts on either rail and when the marble rolled over them it completed a circuit. This completing of the circuit sent data to the computer. They work in exactly the same way as a keyboard but it's sporadic and pretty gnarly to be honest! Awesome and thank you Michael Payne Nottingham Trent'
