Clicking to buy one doesn't work.

vote-for2vote-against

Yep...it will NOT let you buy! Hmmmmmmm?

vote-for2vote-against

Wow, I was gonna buy this too! Kinda stupid that they paid to have this deal sponsored on Deals.woot and then their site can't sell it to you.

vote-for4vote-against

IT WORKS
Just ordered one successfully, when you try to add it to your cart it crashes. Then just go to the main page as prompted and it is there in your shopping cart.

Think I'am getting through then asks for phone number and no place to enter. Wassssuppp!

Would this work for the following:

I've built my self a 20' long attachment that connects to my leaf blower and I can blow the leaves out of my gutters from below. I'd like to attach a small camera to the tip and be able to see, live, what I'm blowing via a small tv or something. It also needs to be CHEAP. Thanks in advance.

Try this:

When you add to cart and get to the bad link hit "check out the home page" link or go to www.caloby.com and you should see it in your cart and should be able to check out without anymore problems.

Is this for a black one, a white one, both, we get to choose? The first pictures all show a black device, and the specs say black, but the last picture shows a white device.

Also, just saw that this won't work with Windows 7 or 8, or at least they aren't listed under the supported operating systems, just an FYI.

@zappaman1999: Not sure why they would pay Woot to post their deal,most likely a bad link.
Anyone ever buy from this company before?

vote-for2vote-against

Check ebay for prices first. I found a lot of the products this daily deal site is offering are available on ebay for less.

@jdchristman - Since you obviously haven't actually tried your lead-blower modification, when you do, just observe the detritus blowing from the gutter. As soon as it stops expelling leaves, you're done! No camera or mini-TV necessary. Pretty cheap, huh? Plus you won't get convicted of wire fraud for recording others' voices without their knowledge.

We've got a message into the IT team about the add to cart error message. Sorry about that.

In the mean time, it appears to work better if you go off this link (at least it worked for us on a few tests).

@barts185: It is black. That one picture is with the protective dust cover on the camera. The dust cover/plastic case is white.

I got one of these some time ago when they were still a lot more expensive. I think the original quoted msrp was $80, I got mine for $35. I've seen them for sale all over the place since then, always at a lower price, they must have manufactured a boatload of them.

Mine did NOT come with the necessary micro sd card, make sure you have one, they're pretty cheap online if you just want a 4gb. Max 16gb.

They have no display and practically no buttons. Video quality is fair, audio quality is fair to low. (this despite the frame rate and video frame size being large..) The odd shape makes it a bit unstable when set down. It's also VERY light., It did come with a clip holder you could then use to hook it on something like the inside of a shirt pocket.

One interesting feature is it can be set to start recording when it hears noise. So I suppose it would make a cheap security / catch-a-theif stealing your lunch sort of camera.

@craig234: This is really weird but you can. I tried and when I hit the buy button I got the "oops" message that tells you the link can not be found. I did it a second time and the same thing happened. So I pretty much believed nope, can't buy this thing. Then for what ever reason I don't know why and even though my cart showed empty, I hit "my cart" and when it opened there it was, two in my cart and ready for check out. I did not buy because I really did not want the thing but any of you that do, just hit buy it and when it looks like you have a broken link, come back to the main page and then choose my cart. It will be there. Strange yes but it will be there.

vote-for2vote-against

@charliecarroll: Thanks, same thing we are seeing. I guess we could call it a "feature" but it really is a weird "issue" that we are trying to fix. That and we get to laugh at the IT director in the next staff meeting.

Just ordered one by going to my cart when the error page came up.

What's up with a warranty of only 20 days on a brand-new item???

vote-for1vote-against

@reginafilangee: I chuckled myself at that "warranty".

vote-for-2vote-against

does it work with Mac OX?

vote-for5vote-against

It's $13 for a video camera. I had a salad and iced tea last week that cost more than that, and it's warranty was shorter than 20 days too.

@jdchristman: i upvoted your comment due to: reading it 4 times and still not having a clue as to what the hell you're talking about. bravo.

vote-for2vote-against

I can't speak for the quality of the vendor on this sale, but the camera is probably worth the price. Cheap enough that you can attach it to a remote control toy and not worry if it gets destroyed.

Video quality is surprisingly good for a pinhole camera. Since there's no screen, it's difficult to tell exactly what you're pointing at when you record, and the indicator LED is not bright enough to tell if the device is actually on when you're in bright sunlight unless you hold it close to your eye. It is possible to use this as a webcam according to the directions, but I haven't tried it with mine.

Battery life is reasonable for the size of the unit. Charges via USB.

vote-for3vote-against

FFS DO NOT BUY THIS!!! I bought one of these about 9 months ago. The software is all Chinese and riddled with viruses. The camera itself would not record anything. And the battery died after 10 seconds of use.

These things have been plaguing discount sites for a year now because they made a ton and can't get rid of them fast enough.

Absolute garbage, completely worthless, do not buy.

@dyaballikl: My brother got one like this 6-8 mths ago and it works fine. I have a keychain type and it works fine as well. Records good video outside not so much indoors.

vote-for2vote-against

@jdchristman: Anything is possible.
I'd think some kind of "L" bracket would work. Pad from the blower tube to the "L", and from the "L" to the camera, to keep out vibration.

vote-for2vote-against

@dyaballikl: I've got a couple.
There were no indications of any virus. I always check.
I don't know of "250 hours" of standby, but my batteries will work for a couple days.
Yeah it's a cheap POS. Yeah there's no screen. Yeah you have to be in a very bright setting. Yeah you won't know if it works, or how good it worked, until afterwards. It's a short learning curve.
BUT for what it is, it ain't bad. Extra insurance- dashboard cam. Extra entertainment- helmet cam. Worried about the landlord/ neighbor/ kids in the house when you're not there- bookshelf cam. Someone put one on his dog's collar. Someone found the office lunch stealer. Someone found out what his cat really does during the day.
For the price, it's a fun little thing to have.

@jdchristman:
JD, they have those remote fishing rod fish viewers, complete with monitor for really dirt cheap. I guess as a product it didn't hold up well, but for your purposes it might be ideal.

Waterproof too.

They often sell for a LOT less than this.

What is the mods problem here???

I posted a link for the exact same item on a different website, for less than $9, and then the mod deletes the post????

vote-for2vote-against

@superninja: yeah that's cause they're maybe trying to protect their "sponsored" products! hmm but maybe not post a direct link but uhm U know be creative & give us a hint as to where we can find this for $9! That would be great! This kind of reminds me of that $39 spy pen I bought off here last year! It was for sure el cheapo made in china crap & the pen clip broke that controlled the off/on broke making it useless after a weeK! For $9 I might wanna try this but $12.99 I'll pass! Thanks!

@girlbytes: Just do a search for "Mini md80" at the "Buyincoins" website.
