How Do You Use a Pen Video Camera?

Pen video cameras are a great way to capture footage without drawing attention. These cameras are small and discreet, making them perfect for capturing footage in public places or recording personal events without disturbing the flow of events.

If you have recently acquired a pen video camera, you might be wondering how to use it. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of using your pen video camera.

Charging Your Pen Video Camera

Before using your pen video camera, it is essential to ensure that it is fully charged. To charge your pen video camera, connect it to a USB port on your computer or use a USB wall adapter. When charging, the LED light on the pen will turn red and then turn off when fully charged.

Turning On Your Pen Video Camera

Once your pen video camera is fully charged, you can turn it on by pressing the power button located on the top of the pen. The LED light will flash blue several times before turning off, indicating that the camera is ready for use.

Recording Videos with Your Pen Video Camera

To start recording videos with your pen video camera, press and hold down the power button for three seconds until the LED light turns blue. The LED light will continue flashing blue while recording is in progress.

To stop recording, press and hold down the power button again for three seconds until the LED light turns red and then turns off.

Using Audio Recording Functionality

Pen video cameras come with built-in audio recording functionality that allows you to record audio along with your videos. To enable audio recording, simply switch the toggle switch located on top of your pen from “Video” to “Audio.”

When you want to start recording audio only, press and hold down the power button until the LED light turns green. To stop recording audio only, press and hold down the power button again until the LED light turns red and then turns off.

Saving Your Videos

Your pen video camera saves videos to a microSD card. To save your videos, remove the microSD card from the pen video camera and insert it into a microSD card reader connected to your computer. Copy the video files from the microSD card onto your computer’s hard drive or external storage device.
