Firebox has started selling yet another low-cost digital camcorder designed for festivalgoers and holidaymakers who want to be able to record their exploits without worrying about losing an expensive piece of kit.
The £34 Busbi Video is a similar size to the Flip video camera we looked at a few weeks ago and echoes its simple record and playback approach. However, the £34 Busbi video camera differs from that device in that it has no zoom facility.
The Busbi runs off a pair of AA batteries and records video footage to either a Compact Flash or Secure Digital card. A 1GB SD card is supplied with the device and should be able to store up to an hour of video footage.
There's a speaker at the back of the camera below the 42x32mm (2in) LCD preview screen. Aside from a big red record button, there’s a power button and options to play video you’ve recorded and to delete any you don’t want.
The Busbi has a USB connector so footage can be downloaded to a PC. For full details see Firebox.
