Les Shaw and Deb Cormier, from The Computer Mechanics, demonstrated several special interest cameras (a robot cam, a hat cam, two mini cams.. and glasses spy cam) at the general meeting of the Durham Personal Computer Users' Club.
The many surveillance cameras at their store have aided police on several occasions. On-the-scene recordings (usually of accidents) and a CNN podcast, using some of these digital camcorders, have brought fame and a modicum of fortune to Les. All cameras, even the small spy cameras, have become inexpensive, and they deliver pretty good images. ThinkGeek is a good place to look for hardware. Most cell phones, purchased within the last year, have the ability to take video and high resolution still shots.
