Pencil Sharpener Camera

Keep your eyes sharp and your pencils sharper. The Wired Pencil Sharpener hidden camera combines a useful, everyday product with the efficiency of a hidden camera. It’s always nice to find a hidden camera that can move effortlessly between two different functions, but this covert camera is lacking simple features. It stands to reason that most pencil sharpeners are big, so if you are looking for a more compact version of a hidden camera, then this may not suit your needs. If you are looking for a stationary desk device to record good video, day or night, go ahead and read on.


The best thing about this hidden camera is that it will help you keep your pencils ready to write while recording anything going on around the room. It is a wired camera so you won’t need to replace any batteries. However, you can upgrade to a wireless version, which will run off a battery. Unfortunately, there is no internal memory included with this device. Any footage you get must be recorded through an external DVR, which you need to buy separately. It is inconvenient, but even with the wireless version, you still need a wireless DVR.

The resolution is low (720 x 480 pixels) on this camera, and the camera is only 1 megapixel. This means you won’t be getting high-resolution footage, but it will be clear, even if you run the camera during the nighttime hours. The camera does need some ambient light from a TV, computer or even a larger alarm clock, but you will be able to see any culprits who are snooping around your space. It has a broad field of view at 80 degrees, so even if you do set it on your desk to face the door or window, you will be able to see a wide range of activity that is happening in the rest of the room. Should you choose to upgrade, you can get a model with higher resolution and more megapixels.

You do get motion detection with this device, so you can avoid recording a bunch of blank video of the bookshelf across the room. It has a 3.6 mm fixed lens focal length, so you get a broad view of the room. Audio is available, but you have to be in law enforcement to get this customized feature.

This product comes with a one-year warranty, and the help and support offered by Super Circuits is very good and efficient. They have a knowledgeable staff who can help you find the right product and troubleshoot any problems you may have. They have a link for a live chat window, but we could never get it to work. It’s possible it was functional at one time and they just haven’t removed it from the site. You can email or call them and refer to the FAQs section of the site.


The Wired Pencil Sharpener provides good recording options while being virtually undetectable. You will need an external DVR to record video and will only be able to get audio with your video if you are in law enforcement. But, while it is lacking in some specifications, this hidden camera makes up for it with a modern design that will fit into any environment.
