Mini Spy Camera with Trigger for Photo or Video

This Mini Spy Camera is smaller than a thumbnail with a high enough resolution to see people, or ghosts, or whatever it is you're looking for. It's fairly high resolution (480p video and 1280x720 photo) module, with a driver board that is about 1 square inch in size, with a microSD card holder.

Connect the red wire to 3.7V-5VDC and the black wire to ground. Then use the white wire to control the camera. When touched to ground for under half a second, the camera will take a photo and stick it in a PHOTO folder on the SD card, numbered from PIC000.jpg up to PIC999.jpg. The red LED will blink briefly. When the trigger wire is touched for over a half second, it will start taking a video clip with audio from the mini microphone. The LED will stay on during the entire recording. Touch it again for half a second+ to stop.

It's really easy to make a micro-timelapse device or make little videos from the point of view of your robot! Note that there is a microphone but the audio quality is a little buzzy. A microSD slot on the board allows video recording to either a microSD or microSDHC memory card - make sure its formatted FAT32 and not exFAT or anything funky. Comes with a USB cable for power and data transfer (plug it in and it will show up as a disk drive).
