How to Wire Pinhole Cameras


A pinhole camera is roughly defined as a camera with a lens opening around one to two millimeters in diameter. These cameras are typically very small, with some no larger than quarters, and are often used in surveillance operations or nanny cams because of their versatility and ease of concealment. Pinhole cameras do not record video (with the exception of some models which may record on MicroSD cards) and instead are wired to a monitor, where the images can be observed. This can either be done with hardware, in the case of a nanny cam, or wirelessly when you need the camera to be mobile. Either way, wiring up these little spy cameras is a breeze.
