No matter how small video recording devices (camcorders, digital cameras and mobile telephones) get, they have a major disadvantage. When you put them to work, you draw the attention of those around you. While, they are useful when recording normal happenings, they will not be effective when it comes to recording video or sound for surveillance or evidence-gathering purposes.
For these purposes, the video camera needs to be small and most importantly should not draw attention. Size seems not to be a major issue though, but the shape of the video recording device is crucial. The device must be in a shape that must be mistaken for a harmless, every day object.
Such a small video recording device is called a micro video camera. A micro video could then be defined as a small video recording device that’s not easily noticeable or if it is, does not give the impression of being one.
So, if you’re in law enforcement or simply want to monitor the security or safety of your property and close ones, you would want to consider acquiring a micro video camera.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at micro video camera types out there which may suit your requirements.
