Product Description

The BU-18 is the higest resolution camera of it's kind available on the market. No other button camera can match this one for video quality and low light ability.

A covert camera kit with enough options to stay hidden in most environments. This BU18 button camera kit comes with 4 interchangeable lens surrounds. Two button types and 2 screw types. Camera is supplied with all connecting cables for use with any of our portable recording solutions. When used with the PV500 Lite 2, the PV500 EVO 2 or PV1000 Touch this camera can take it's power from the recording device so you don't need to carry an extra power supply.

If you match the buttons on your garment to the ones supplied with this camera then you'd never be able to tell what it is. Comes with spare buttons for your shirt. Fitted with a built-in high gain mic for monitoring audio.

The best thing about this covert camera is the high resolution rated at 550tvl. Unlike a lot of other cameras on the market at this size, the low light pick up is excellent and so is the colour representation. It's also worth noting that we have seen other suppliers selling this model for up to three times the price!

  • High performance 1/3 inch SONY SUPER HAD CCD series sensor, making the resolution of 550 TVlines
  • Miniature size achieved by the latest micro-sized PCB technology available, making the size even smaller than using a 1/4 CCD sensor
  • Featured with much better performance by adopting 1/3 CCD sensor in resolution, sensitivity & angle of field while enjoying the smaller sized form factor 1/4 CCD sensor, extend the conventional mini-sized pinhole CCD camera to a brand-new level
  • Sensitivity Improved drastically over regular pinhole CCD as low as 0.2 Lux F2.0 for true day & night and all weather conditions * Inter-changeable covert lens heads. The camera can be made to look like a button or a screw head.

  1. Button camera - Great piece of kit

    Posted by Jim on 24th Apr 2014

    I am a nightclub bouncer and compared to the covert cams used previously, it is the smallest camera my business owns, and from experience I would definatly say the best. It really is a brilliant piece of kit. The quality of filming and audio is excellent for such a covert and small device.

    Delivery was fast and efficient. The camera was sent out the day after placing the order and it arrived the next day and the best part, it was free.
