Thanko Announces Super Slim Video Pen 2 Spy-Friendly Thanko Super Slim Video Pen 2 Shoots HD Video On The Sly
pens to now capture HD-
quality video.ย Today, Tokyo-based Thanko revealed the Thanko Super
Slim Video Pen 2, a hidden camera system that fits an HD-capable camera
and a mini-USB connection into the non-business end of a traditional pen.
The Thanko Super Slim Video Pen 2 is a logical follow-up to the popular
(and creepy) Super Slim Video Pen, a device with a tiny hidden camera
above the clip.ย The pen features a working ball point, but when the
button atop the pen is held, the camera becomes active.ย In contrast to
the original spy cam pen, the new Super Slim Video Pen 2 shoots higher
quality video, 1,280ร—960 HD at 30fps.ย In addition to video, this pen
also snaps JPEGs at the same 1,280ร—960 resolution.
The new Thanko Super Slim Video Pen 2 has a mini-USB connection and
internal drive capable of storing up to 1.5 hours of video.ย The pen
will also accept microSD cards, and an 8GB unit will supposedly record 6
hours of video.ย Secret agents, spies and perverts can get their hands
on the Super Slim Video Pen 2 for $65.
