PenCam Trio VGA

Aiptek’s new PenCam Trio literally has a trio of attractive options that give you more convenience and versatility than ever before.  Plug it into your home computer and you have all the convenience of a USB PC camera.  Unplug it, and it’s also a fully functional digital camera!  But the PenCam Trio doesn’t just stop there.  As the name hints, the Trio is three great cameras, all in one compact package.  In addition to a PC camera and digital camera, you get another exciting function that really makes this product stand out from the rest.  The PenCam Trio also gives you the ability to record live video, completely independent of your PC!  No other device in its price range can boast so many exciting options!
