It's a little tricky to judge your shot, but practice makes perfect. This clever little key fob camera is very simple to use, with just a power button and a shutter button. The micro SD card pops in and out of the side and the whole unit is rechargeable through a micro USB port that can also pipe the pics straight to your computer. The pics end up looking like basic, low-end cell phone shots with a date stamp on them. That stamp can't be turned off though, and resetting it to the proper date and time is a bit tricky as well. In fact, I couldn't get it to change at all. Overall it's a fun little gadget with a few limitations that might make it a hard sell at its $100 MSRP. But if you need to shoot surreptitiously, there aren't many options out there this side of ringing up Q.
Street price is around $70 and the RemoteCam makes a perfect companion to Swann's other 007 spy cam, the Pencam.
