Well . . . since nobody else bit, I just ordered it. Wish it were all black, but that's what Krylon spray paint is for, right?

Funny you mention that. Mine was going in a black entertainment system cabinet and I wanted it to blend in. Easy to take apart, paint, and reassemble.

Because it's not the same cam that the OP asked about, but it's the same housing. I was responding to Frog's comment about painting it black. That OK with you??

Nice job! I did this with the original Annke I61DR cube camera, but that old 2 MP camera has seen a lot of abuse and the paint tended to scratch/flake off. How's yours holding up?

Mine's holding up just fine, but I don't really fool with it much. It just sits there.

Ok, confession time. After painting it I had no nighttime vision. I thought I damaged the IR light. Turns out I painted over the black lens cover at the bottom with the logo, lol. Had to clean it with mineral spirits and then it worked just fine.

I used blue painters masking tape to cover all the delicate spots on mine. Had to go back with a cotton swab to touch up the missed spots.

And they cancelled my order. Refunded my $$$, so that's okay. It appears these are out of stock everywhere. :( I really wanted to review that camera.
