Gavyn is 11 asking for essentials this holiday season. You know a tablet, PS3 games, Nerf, GI Joe figures, remote control car and a few other things. If he didn’t give me a list, I’d have no clue what to get him.
So if you are in the same position, check out the Spy Gear Panosphere 360 Spy Cam by Spin Master.
The Spy Gear Panosphere 360 Spy Cam is an innovative camera where children can position the camera in numerous ways to capture videos or photos. This arrives with everything needed to take pictures or videos.
You’ll receive the camera, storage disk, camera holder, suction cup bracket and Velcro strap.
Before use, the camera will need to be charged, this is done by plugging the Panosphere 360 Spy Cam into the computer with the included USB cable. Charging did not take long at all. Once charged, kids can choose to stick it, slide it or strap it to capture photos or videos.
With the suction cup bracket, the camera can stick to anywhere you wish to capture. Stick to windows, walls, RC cars or on the bike helmet.
To slide it, the camera will be positioned in the storage disc, and kids can slide it on the floor to see what it captures! Gavyn is really enjoying strapping it through. The wrist band will go into the camera holder, the camera on the holder and then strapped to a bike, body part or whatever else you can think of.
The Panosphere 360 Spy Cam has 2 gig of storage, so kids can take 2000 photos or up to 15 minutes of video up to 720p! The memory can also be expanded with a microSD card up to 32GB!
So simple to use. On the camera is a 3-position switch. Up position will take photos, down will take video and the middle is to turn the cam off.
Gavyn just walked around our area with it since we are snow covered and here is what he captured.
I realized he captured upside down, but it’s pretty awesome huh? He wanted to go spy on his sister and dad, but I said not for the review. Trust me, the camera has been placed in our bedrooms. So, yeah kids need to know there is a time and place for the Spy Cam!
Indoor photos weren’t the best with our awful lighting, and quite pixelated but I thought some of the images were cool.
This will shoot 1 photo per second, so when you upload it looks like a slide-show, or those flip books. It’s neat!
To get the images/videos off the spy cam, you’ll plug the camera in to the computer via USB to upload. You can also use the Spy Panosphere software though I haven’t quite figured out how to use this yet. It is very confusing.
Easy peasy and fun!
Gavyn cannot wait until we have clear sidewalks to get outdoors with this on his bike. He thinks it is really cool how it captures.
We love the Spy Gear Panosphere 360 Spy Cam and would highly recommend as a gift to boys age 8+.
