CVS Camcorder

I recently bought a disposable camcorder from CVS.


Theoretically, users are supposed to buy these cameras, shoot about 20 minutes of video, then give them back to CVS. CVS keeps the camera and gives you a DVD with the videos you’ve shot.

However, some clever people have figured out how to pull the videos out themselves without having to pay CVS for processing or having to give CVS the camera. This makes the camera ideal for things like putting them into model rockets.

Unfortunately, the camera I bought has the newest firmware version. This new version can’t be hacked–yet. Eventually (hopefully sooner rather than later) someone will figure out how to hack this thing, and then I’m probably going to strap it to the front of my car and record my drive to work or something.
