I saw they used the TF cards but I saw you mention having the wrong one so I wanted to check and make sure there was not more then one TF card before ordering.

i was mistaken that it was micro sd when its actually a m2 card. one on left is the good one. the one on right wont fit. im sure you all can tell the difference, just wanted to clarify the looks. they look similar.

yeah im a dummy. i just glanced at this sandisk m2 card and assumed it was right. i grabbed a 2 gig micro sd from work last night. id like to see if the card or the battery run out first. so far weather looks good. i should be able to get some out door shots a little later.

So I got mine yesterday, and yeah, they work pretty darn good for a $10 cam, especially considering it's a keychain!
I took one apart, and it uses a single LiPo cell. The camera itself attaches by a ribbon cable to the circuit board and would ease mounting out of case, as well better adjustment of the lens. It doesn't seem to point very straight out of the case. The buttons too look like they might be easy to remove the mechanical button and solder on some remote buttons for easier access while mounted.
Further, for power perhaps, a adjustable BEC could be tweaked down to 3v for a powersupply.
I'll post a couple pics later, I have some on my phone but had to use the SD card for the cam lol.

oh wow thats awesome. you made quick work of that haha. just tell me where to ship it for the modification haha. cant wait to see what you do with this, i just hope its in my league. you should drill a hole in the head of your scale driver and make it scale 1-1 view.

Hey fellas, I've got a few little DHK cameras (Direct from Hong Kong). This is THE source for info on these keychain cams:
http://www.chucklohr.com/808/

protip: the higher class your microSD card is the faster it can take data. I believe a class 4 or higher is recommended for video recording.

Has anyone fabricated an alternative housing for these cameras yet? Smething that can perhaps fit into a scale item, such as an emergency light bar or similar.

I'm tossing around some ideas right now, but I think I'd like to create something that's visible and identifiable as a camera rather than simply hide the camera within the chassis or body. Ideally something that isn't complicated to remove and reattach since it wouldn't necessarily always need to be on the vehicle.

This isn't the appropriate forum to continue to talk about such a build/integration, so if you've done anything like this, please feel free to provide a link to a thread in a more suitable forum.

I also saw a video of that one but for now I think I don't need it but I agree that it's really useful.
