To say that the L’Espion XS is cool, is rather like saying, oh? Rowan Atkinson is mildly amusing. Its’ not, and is not meant to be, a top notch high res camera. It is however an achingly slick looking and very clever spy-camera with an infra-red and surveillance mode. When closed it looks remarkably like a slightly over-sized Zippo lighter, you simply slide it out from its case (that’s so shiny you can check your hair in it) to take your snaps.
|It uses Lite-sync technology to enhance low lighting conditions, in IR mode it will take a snap when it detects body heat up to 5 metres away, and in surveillance mode you can set it up to take pics every 1, 2, 5, 10 and up to 90 minutes, and it’ll store up to six days of surveillance. You can use it as a conventional low res camera, a video camera (10 secs) and a webcam, but this little style monster is all about spying. Admittedly not may of us are international spies, but a lot of us quite fancy looking like one, and this L’Espion XS does the job beautifully.|
