“NO MORE endless video files wasting your precious memories with footage empty rooms!”
Facebook advertiser Gadget Snob doesn’t reveal their location. I’m guessing, based on the charming and unique style of English, that it’s pretty far away. Contact information:

There may be nothing illegal or wrong with the following business practices. But they suggest that the seller is not to be trusted. I’m using my Scam-O-Meter scoring system; -1 means true (bad), +1 means false (good), and 0 means undetermined. I penalize the seller for statements made by shills.
Ridiculous claims: -1. Based on what I see on Amazon, the $65 discount offer is based on an inflated price.
Suspicious location: -1. Gadget Snob doesn’t reveal their location, earning my Carmen Sandiego award.
Onerous terms: 0. The website has no Terms of Service document. It advertises a 60-day 100% money-back guarantee. But where would you have to ship your returned camera, and how much would that cost?
Lying and deception: 0. None found.
Obfuscation: -1. Animated countdown timer, warning that very few cameras are still in stock, etc. give the impression that you don’t have time to make a careful decision.
Phony reviews: +1. I’m ignoring the on-site endorsements, since there’s no way I can check them. I found no “publisher” reviews.
Crummy product: +1. This Reddit thread is mostly pro, with a few loud exceptions.
Overpriced: +1. The Gadget Snob is asking $40 for one camera. Amazon has several offerings at about the same price.
Bad service: +1. Most commenters in this Reddit thread were happy with the service. I sent the company a “customer question;” they replied the same day.
Total score; 1.
Unauthorized charges: I found a few accusations of unresponsiveness. Because I don’t know the company’s location, I can’t find it at the Better Business Bureau.
Conclusion: Their mystery location is annoying, and they seem a bit flakey. You can get the same camera for the same price on Amazon.
