The WriteShot is an unassuming, sleek pen that twists to write flawlessly, while a simple click of the top button allows you to capture a snapshot, or start an audio or video recording. Pictures captured by this covert writing utensil are as clear as most top-of-the-line smartphones with over 12 megapixel resolution and video can be captured at TV quality 720p HD resolution.
The long-lasting battery provides up to 75 minutes of video capture on a single charge and even the smallest microSD card option of 8GB is enough to store up to 40 hours of audio recording! Your recordings can be set to include a time and date stamp, making later review when plugged into your computer via USB even easier. The WriteShot HD proves once again that the pen truly is mightier than the sword.

Frequently Asked Questions about the WriteShot HD Hidden Camera Pen
How long will the battery last?
The battery provides up to 60 minutes of recording.
Why is my pen not charging or being recognized by my PC?
When you plug the pen into your USB port, make sure that the plug is not upside-down. Make sure that the four gold contacts on the pen plug are touching the gold contacts in the USB port. If you are using a USB extension cable and the pen is plugged into it correctly and still not being seen by the PC, remove it from the cable and plug it directly into the PC USB port.
How do I play the files back?
We suggest that you try to use VLC Media Player to play the video files back. You can easily download it for free online in only a few minutes. Please visit our help site for more information.
