Clothespin snaps on camera

You can hold it in the second crepe on a swivel hinge. Judging by the pair of holes - it needs to be fixed with a constant screw somewhere with self-tapping screws.

Charging cable, you can also connect the camera to the TV

The camera can be used as a webcam. This view is because the cable is short, only 60 cm. With an usb extension cable, you can use it

Well, actually tests. Everything was recorded on a 16GB 10 class seller's sent flash drive (camera price only: $ 9.33, camera + flash drive: $ 13.59).

On this, in principle, everything. The quality is so-so, it’s not worth the other. Chip in size. Plus there is multitasking - it can just shoot, work like a regular webcam, shoot in complete darkness, you can connect to TV (by the way, the camera can write on the motion sensor). What for? Considering the size - for inconspicuous shooting, I think. Such a camera, like the law, is not prohibited and is not a means of secretly obtaining information, not camouflaged for any left object. This is a camera, just a little one. I have a similar mini-camera in the form of the well-known mp3 player-clothespins (see photo below). A small inconspicuous hole the size of the needle's eye and the body of the player - such a shooting would certainly be illegal, as well as the purchase.
