A Nationwide Review of the Pet's Eye View Camera

A Nationwide Review of the Pet's Eye View Camera

Every year, the Pet's Eye View Camera ends up in pet roundups everywhere. Each year we've wondered what kind of photos your dog or cat could possibly snap with this thing hanging around its neck? This year, Friskies went out and found out.

In what's obviously a gimmick, the cat food company gave the Pet's Eye View Camera to 50 domestic cats around the country. The camera, which hangs off your dog or cat's collar, automatically snaps 640 x 480 images at intervals you determine -- every one, five, of 15 minutes.

What has served as a publicity stunt has also served as a massive product review for all of us to enjoy. Looking through the 760 images showcased on the Friskie's Flickr page you see just how this thing works in low light, bright light, on the move and close-up. We've picked some of the prize shots from the photo stream in the collection above. For the most part it looks like you'll get a ton of garbage shots (carpets, blurry walls, etc.) but for every 10 crap shots there may be a gem like those above.

What we found interesting looking through the photo stream is just how often pets spend their time facing each other. Many of the cats got photos of the other pets in the house -- including one tattling on their sibling on the kitchen counter.
