          The quality is pretty average, but what particularly did not work for me were the lights since I was trying to use it in a covert manner.

          The concept for taking video notes is good. But the video is not clear when your target is moving. The audio is not good too.

              Comments about Swann PenCam 4 GB:

              I was amazed at how well the video quality was. I have used it stationary, walking, as well as driving in a car. Only thing that is a bit suspicious, is the bright blue light that will shine on your shirt when using to video tape something or someone.
