It may be a bit too late for a Christmas present for a relative or a friend, but it’s never too late to make yourselves ready in case you have to take video footage on the go.
If during your New Year party with friends, or your Christmas lunch with your family, you thought even for a second that you wished you had a video camera on hand to save memories of a particularly funny or special moment, you really might have used a miniature digital video recorder.
Thanks to their extremely small size, they are perfectly suitable for being comfortably placed in the front pocket of your jacket, and can be concealed inside key holders, cigarette lighters, pens and so on, in order not to arise suspicion and take candid or covert recordings.
Generally, the high definition video footage is captured by a microscopic high sensitivity viewer, and stored on an embedded memory card which, depending on the model, can have a capacity of up to 8 Gb, that is, several hours of recordings in the most common video formats, which can easily be downloaded on your computer thanks to a USB cable.
Besides leisurely use, some models of micro video recorders hidden inside everyday objects, are suitable for covert gathering of images and evidence during surveillance operations or corporate counterespionage, and are therefore recommended for use by law enforcement agencies or professionals in the surveillance field.
Not only to shoot quick videos from your holidays or parties, but also to gather evidence of marital infidelity or of any crime that you may be witnessing, usage of a pocket video recorder can help you solve a wide range of problems, at home or at work, and even help keep our cities secure!
