First , plug the camera into the USB port with the supplied USB cable , and let it charge , you will know its charging as the little light flashes , and goes solid when it is fully charged . Now how to use the camera !
This is relatively easy , look a the picture nearest , and on the left front are two buttons , the rear most is the on and off button . Hold the button till the light flashes [ little hole at the right front ] , its the same procedure to turn the camera on and off . Now to take video , hold the front button down until the light flashes , same again to stop video . To take a picture , you don't hold the button down , you press and release and it should take a picture . Now I tried it and the picture quality indoors was poor to say the least . This really is more for outdoors or well lit conditions .
    The first video is hand held :  and I'm sure I did not pan as quickly as the video shows , I tried to be as slow and deliberate as I could be ,  
   This video has the keychain camera onboard one of my 450 helicopters .  And it really looks to suffer for it . I'm thinking the recording speed may be a little slow with a standard Mini SD card , so I have ordered a Class 10 SD card , which is as fast as it gets [ recording speed ] .

 Now the color is a little out , but that's ok , 2 minutes of video = 157MB , so even a 2GB SD card should offer plenty of recording for such a small device .

  Now this is a cheap [ I paid $6.38 shipped ] little video camera , and its not going to give superb video , but for
so little money , and the fact that it works , can be stuck on a RC vehicle of almost any sort , your bike , your   car  , almost anywhere in fact . Its simply a fantastic little toy , and I call it a toy because its not top of the line [  mini cameras ] , but its a hell of a toy . And I really look forward to trying it with a Class 10 micro SD card to see if the recording quality can be increased , because I really like this camera , and hope to use it for some aerial photography in the future .

 The camera is recharged VIA USB , and extracting video is as easy as plugging the camera to the USB port , then entering as if a external drive to the folder containing the footage . It really is plug and play , no need to turn the camera on , just plug it into the USB .  My only complaint is regarding the instructions , very very tiny print . If you have aging eyes , you may find it a little hard to read without a magnifying glass .
