    YOU just GOT to have the NIGHT OWL

    Comments about Night Owl CS-Mini-DVR Camcorder with 4GB Micro SD Card:

    Very light weight, easy to operate, good clarity on playback night and day. So simple to use just hold down button on the top for 2 seconds until light turns green then tap the button again for 1 second and you're recording. You can set this up in your home while away for a couple of hours are hide it in your for those low down valet guys.this item is a must have for sight and sound.

          Comments about Night Owl CS-Mini-DVR Camcorder with 4GB Micro SD Card:

          Nice little camera, good quality video, great price. The one thing that is annoying is the lights on top of the device - they are distracting and draw attention to itself. These lights, however helpful in knowing that it is on and recording, do not allow it to be "discreet" as advertised. A piece of gaff tape does the trick though.

          Comments about Night Owl CS-Mini-DVR Camcorder with 4GB Micro SD Card:

          I was looking for a discreet, portable video camera and found it in the Night Owl CS-Mini-DVR Camcorder. It's incredibly small, the size of a thumb, and records good video even in low light situations. Natural lighting works best. The 4GB of memory is more than enough for my needs and the various accessories that come with it are very useful.
          The only downside is you don't know if you captured what you wanted to record until you play it back on your computer since there is no viewfinder or video cable for connecting it directly to a monitor while recording. Therefore, if I want to be included in the video, I have to either have someone else hold the camera or I have to take several practice takes and play them on my computer to determine where my mark should be for the final take.
