  • Spy Pen camera can no way be useful to us unless we are a reporter of crime.(This is my opinion). And I can support that my answer is 100% correct. For example, if a teenager or a kid is given a Pen camera, what will he do with that. No doubt, me may misuse it. However, that depends on the character of the person using it.
    Journalists find these spy cameras more advantageous when they investigate some illegal and unethical practices. You might have seen in new that some MRO or some gazetted officer is caught taking bribes and that credit goes to these spy cameras. So, keeping those pen cameras away from false hands makes them more useful for you and also for the society.

  • The use of spy pen camera in your day to day life is more than you think if at all you are a journalist. For example;
    1)If you are a journalist it will help you in many ways for taking up a secret operation.
    2) Covering news on illegal govt officials and recording their crimes without their knowledge.
    Also, remember that there are many disadvantages when these spy cameras fall into wrong hands.

  • Spy pen camera can be used for stealthily taking videos of the people indulging in crimes like corruption and unlawful activities. But it can prove to be bane in the hands of teenagers who can misuse the camera taking pictures of some of their female friends without their knowledge and then send them to their other friends as a matter of fun. However, it will cause a lot embarrassment to the girls whose photos or videos the teenagers may stealthily shoot. So, the parents should ensure that they should not let their teenager children to get hold of such a spy pen camera.

  • Spy Camera can be used in the place where normally steal happens and no secure over there. For example, if you have shop and you trust your workers but still you feel that you are losing out some money and shop items - then you can use the Spy camera to keep in a secure place where your petty cash or material movement can be recorded. Later or after your arrival to shop, you may use it in your PC as it has USB port / memory then check it in your PC for the activities which took place recently in your shop when you absent. One can use it in a right way for security purpose.

    Spy pen camera size is just like normal pen but very little extra weight and it has in-built small camera near the pen/pocket holder on top, this device has memory system and USB port fixed which you can use it later or after recorded. Spy pen camera disadvantage is no durability and cost around Rs 1500.
