real life 007 spy cameras


So today I’m going to be telling you guys about these really cool miniature spy cameras known as the 808. Here’s the best website on them: http://chucklohr.com/808/ . This site has pretty much everything you need to know on these cameras and more. There’s not much that I can say about the cameras that’s not on that site so I’m going to show you a teardown of mine which is a spy cam variant of the #9 808 keychain cam.

So let’s have a quick look at the insides of my camera shall we?

I’m only going to tak off the back cover and not bother messing around inside as I usually do as I don’t want to break it because I like it quite a lot.

The low capacity battery. I'll probably just use my own 1000mah batteries if I want to do anything like time lapses with it.

I know that I didn’t show you guys much then but my computer’s keyboard is pretty much stuffed so I can’t really write much without getting frustrated. I’ll have to fix it. I might be building a weather balloon near space project soon though so keep posted.
