Default what do you all think of these?

hey there, i came across some people using these small key chain cams. 720x480 res. they are about the size of a car alarm key chain. the video from people using this looked good from what i could see. anyone else use these? and what do you think of them.

I've seen video using these and it was surprisingly good. Made me think I needed one.

Is TF for Tiny F'ing Card?
If it does sound, might be cool for mounting in rig, nice and small.
For capturing though my phone does stills and vid, don't need more crap to lug around.

I ended up doing the Buy it now and got two for $20 bucks shipped. The ones with 16GB were bidding starting at $.99. I like the slot better, then you can just take the card out instead of the whole thing and if the cards get bigger you can easily swap up to more than 16GB. Plus I already have an 8GB card from my phone that I don't use after getting an iPod.
I'm really curious how much vid a gig will hold since there's no mention of it.

i read that at 640x480 you could get roughly 40 minutes per gig so about 6 ish hours per 8 gig. i think we will be at the mercy of the battery though honestly. it was advertised at 1-2 hour batt life, so a 2-4 gig will probably be fine. i have a 8 gig laying around also due to an iphone upgrade haha.

I bought two, so I'm sure one will come apart for checking out connecting to the running battery. I'd really rather not have something else to charge lol.

Wow I might get one of these. Perfect for crawling, just mount it on the mirror and your good to go And 5USD is nothing for a 30FPS camera!

micro sd/tf. ebay search of either micro sd or micro tf produce same results. i think the card i have was for a cell phone or something. reason its got an extra flap? itll take up to 8 gig. though with battery life, 2-4 gig is probably more than enough. im going to nab a card from work tomorrow and hopefully not be to tired after a 14 hour day to post some vid of the cam.

if your looking at getting one they make them with on board memory also. cost is about the same.
