Want to see what the guy in the apartment across the street is up to? This digital spy camera has a ridiculously long telescopic lens that lets you zoom in on the action from afar.
The Avatar digital camera has a 21x analog zoom lens which should make long-distance observation and photography a snap. While the extra-long lens isn’t exactly inconspicuous, I suppose it’s better than trying to duct tape your digicam to the back of a telescope.
It’s capable of capturing images at a 2-megapixel resolution (yawn), and in addition to the analog zoom, has a 40x digital zoom mode too. You can also shoot full-motion video at 640×480 resolution at 25fps, or at 320×240 at 30fps. When you’re not using it to capture surveillance shots, the camera also functions as a portable media player.
Normally, I’d tell you guys you could find these over at ChinaVasion, but they’re currently sold out. But with a little looking over on eBay, I was able to turn up a whole bunch for about $190 (USD). Please do not use this to videotape your neighbors without their clothes on. That would just be wrong.
