    and I don't think serenity used C270 for his ups video
    So you are saying that I can view the video live on a #16 over a wifi connection?
    So you are saying that the lens on a #16 can be aimed out the side of a shoe?
    So you are saying that I can have a #16 in my shoe and remotely start the recording process without having to physically touch the #16 itself?

    Again.... I'm not calling it the perfect covert camera. There are a lot of places where it is not as useful as a #16/#18/#26. But it does have its uses. And as a shoe cam hooked to an Android phone, it does a very good job.

    I'm just putting this info out there for others to consider. The fact that two different people have compared it to #16/#18/#26 keychain cameras makes me think people really don't understand what the C270 is and when it would be appropriate to use it. There are certain scenarios where it is a very good option. And there are other scenarios where the #16/#18/#26 or some other covert type of camera would be better.

    Haha. I lightened the pics with an editor. Definitely the C270 cam. I dont feel like arguing with dumb asses on the internet though.

    Thanks for the clarifying. I'm glad to see that you were able to be successful with your C270 setup.

    ok i stand corrected, no problem.

    All I'm saying is its much easier to use the keycams, you can take it apart, you can put it in your shoe, you can change the lens angle etc,

    it does have video out, and you can connect it to android phone if you must (but what for?)

    here is a tutorial for you:

    Sure.... and I can walk into my local Target/Walmart and buy a keycam with cash right? Right?

    I'm glad you like your keycam. I'm not bashing them. Just pointing out some other options that I think work better.

    Why would I attach it to an Android phone? So that I can remote view it live and start recording on demand. As I said, there are plenty of scenarios (beyond shoe cams) where having a small pinhole camera attached to a phone for remote viewing can be very helpful. Scenarios where your keycam would not work very well.

    "Never argue with Idiots - they will drag you down to their level & then they will beat you with experience"

    One of my teachers said that to me once - can't remember which one - but I've remembered it my entire life :-)
    I observe the Voyeur's Code:

    "I pledge to never, under any circumstances, share, post, trade or otherwise distribute any original content that I receive privately from another voyeur without his express permission, ever. I expect other voyeurs I trade with to abide by the same strict policy where my own original content is concerned. This agreement must hold forever, even years after the files have been traded and all contact has ceased."

    ...
    I've tried a few USB camera apps but most either FC (Force closed) instantly (i'm on Android 7.0.1) and with one that seemed to work (CameraFi) i can't find the video recording button :S (appears to be missing/hidden somehow)
