The Ball Camera Camball now takes up to 16GB memory, and has improved motion detection.
The CamBall allows you to record your life as it happens, and upload YouTube quality videos in something the size of a golf ball. Never again miss any of lifes precious moments, knowing you have the Camball mini video recorder with you.
We charged up the CamBall ball camera, and with an 8 GB SD card, it took about 100 minutes, or over 1.5 hours of straight video. On motion activation, you can get hours of video with light movement.
The SecureShot MicroEyes CamBall is a powerful 30 frames per second (FPS), High Resolution, Color, Motion Activated, Time/Date Stamped, self contained SD card recording camera. Whew!
Be gentle with the Camball, and it will give you years of service. Just remember to not push the buttons too hard.
The manufacturers of the CamBall have discontinued the older SC-20 & SC-21 models, and has introduced two new models:
We will no longer carry the CamBall SC-30, only the CamBall SC-31
The Camball video camera requires you to read the quick start guide, and the manual (link below, or on the disc) to set up the motion detection. It's not difficult to operate, however, it does require you to read the manual.
The difference is the Camball SC-30 does not have motion detection, and the CamBall SC-31 has really improved motion detection. Before, just subtle shifts in the room color wold trigger the motion detection. In tests we are currently conducting, the CamBall is recording when we move in front of it, and it appears to just make one video of all the motion, not 100 two minutes movies. We have to say the motion detection is improved over older versions. Check out two videos below of the Camball with the motion detection.
Updated CamBall Contents
The CamBall works with a PC or a Mac, however, on the Mac, it won't run the CamBall Manager Software, which allows you to change all the settins, however, just hook the cable up to the input on a TV, and you can run it that way because it's built in. Otherwise, you will have to remove the SD card and use an SD card reader to see the video on a Mac. You can't adjust any of the settings on the Mac
The Secure Shot MicroEye CamBall has an internal Li-polymer battery that you can recharge through the USB port of any computer. Records 6 hours of video on a 2GB SD card. When the Micro Eye is fully charged, work in the motion detection mode for up to 24 hours. You can buy an optional AC adapter for continuous operation.
The Camball just got better because it is now YouTube compatible and you can upload your video directly from the Camball. The Cam Ball does not come with the metal stand anymore, or any of the accessories in the first YouTube video.
About the size of a ping pong ball, The SecureShot MicroEyes BallCam is a totally self contained digital video recorder and high resolution camera that records beautiful and clear color video and audio to either 128MB of internal memory, or you can add a tiny MicroSD cards (sold separately), up to 16GB for up to 72 hours of high quality video @ 30fps, longer with lower quality and lower fps.
The CamBall has improved motion detection, so you can only record when there is movement, if you want to watch a home or business, and it works decent in low light.
You can plug the camball with the included multi-media video cable and connect the Micro Eye right to a TV, Monitor, or VCR to set it up if you don't have a computer, or if you have a PC, the CamBall manager will also set up the device.
On an Apple computer, the camball manager software won't work; it's only for PC's. You will either have to change the set-up with a TV/VCR connection, or if you are running Windows in any way on your Mac, it will work fine there.
If you have a PC, you can open the free CamBall Manager software to make adjustments like changing the recording frame rate, turning off or on the audio and night vision, and letting the camera record to the micro SD cards.
You can watch the video on a Mac or a PC, as it shows up as a drive, and if you have an added micro SD card, that will show up also on both. You can also remove the SD Card and use a SD card reader to download the video to your computer, though why bother if you can access the video from the multi-media cable.
The uses for the Micro Eye Camball are endless. You can put it on your dashboard and you can record your travels. You can set it up in your home or car to catch the punk that is ripping you off. You can add a sports armband and pop the camball in to record you mountain biking, snow boarding, skate boarding, bronco bull busting, or any other action sport.
You can't just open it and push an on and off button like the PI Camstick, you have to take the time to read the manual in order to learn how to operate all the many feautres of the Camball Ball Camera. This is your warning; don't buy this if you won't take the time to read the instruction manual, buy the PI Camstick for an easy to use 1 button recording.
You can set the CamBall up on a shelf and it will record video of whatever walks in front of it because it has a Motion Detection feature that will only record when there is movement. It also has a low light feature for night recording, and with the new firmware upgrade, you have access to the Camball Manager software.

I purchased the CamBall late last year, after a neighbor with two loud dogs became a problem for myself and my family. The dogs woke us up numerous times at night and disrupted our peace and quiet during the day. After talking with the owner several times and explaining to them how the barking was affecting us, they did nothing to permanently resolve it. I could see that I wasn't going to get anywhere by reasoning with them and decided to make a formal complaint, which involved going to trial.
At first, I didn't know whether I would be given a trial because I wasn't able to get any other neighbors as witnesses. Fearing that I wouldn't get a chance to resolve this in court, I decided to purchase the spy-camera to try obtaining some video evidence of the dogs barking. They were right next door and we had a clear view of them through the window. After setting up the camera with the A/C adaptor (motion sensor didn't work through the glass window), I managed to get some very clear recordings of the dogs, along with their loud barking. The night vision didn't work because there wasn't enough ambient light to record a picture, but the audio worked fine, and with the date stamp, it would show when the dogs were barking quite clearly.
I ended up being awarded a trial, without needing to produce the recordings. Nonetheless, I burning a DVD of the dogs, and sent it in to the Prosecutor as further evidence. It ended up not being used or needed in court, and I did win my trial, but it definitely helped me a lot to have the recordings, as I was more confident, knowing that even if I were to lose the trial, I would be able to produce admissible video evidence in the future if need be. I wish I hadn't needed to resort to using a spy-camera, but I'm grateful that there was something relatively affordable out there that I was able to use.
Thanks, I'm glad I could provide this testimonial - having the camera for this really did help ease some worries for me. I'd prefer to remain anonymous if you end up using this.

Recently, we purchased the Camball sg-31 to monitor our summer cabin. We had some activity going on and needed to monitor the situation. The Camball was the solution to our problem. This little device worked extremely well. We also purchased the survillance pack and we did not have to worry about the battery running down on the Camball. Chris from eyespypro.com answered our questions very quickly. Chris was always available and easy to reach both before and after the purchase. It is so nice to call a company and be able to talk with a real person and not get an automated service. Chris has gone above and beyond with our purchase. Thanks again. Wonderful little device.
We purchased the Camball from you and have been monitoring our lake cabin. as we believe a nasty neighbor was trespassing on our property when we were not around. Well, guess what!! The Camball caught him, driving his van, bold as you please around our U shaped driveway!! Now we have the proof. We burned it to a DVD, however, the DVD does not play in our DVD player. How can I present the evidence to the authorities? I want to press charges against this guy with the proof. We are using the computer to review our files and find the KMP player compatible with Camballs files. Any help is appreciated. Also is there anyway to zoom in on a face or person in a picture as 2 other people are utilizing our property when we are not around and are unable to see them clearly d/t distance. Camball was a success. We can not be more pleased with the little device as this guy is weird and confirmed all along what he is up to!!
