Roger Moore, Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig – they all have used spy cameras at one point of the movie or another. Have you ever watched a James Bond movie and thought to yourself that it would be so cool to have a gadget that does amazing stuff? Well, this is your chance to own a spy camera. For those of you who do not know what a spy camera is, it can defined as any camera which can be used for taking pictures or video of a scene or a person without their knowledge. If you have watched “Candid Camera”, you would know that people tend to be amusing when they are not aware that a camera is capturing their moves. History has it that the Second World War was the first time when people used spy devices to wander into enemy territory and take pictures of structures, plans and blueprints.
Nowadays, these cool gadgets are available to the consumers for their own use. It is impressive the way you see them are incorporated in normal objects that you use in your daily life. The cameras are camouflaged by regular objects like calculators, sticks of gum, cigarette packs, tie pins, pens and alarm clocks. James Bond always uses pens or tie pins or the bow to record conversations and scenes. Typically, anything that is big enough to house a small camera can be used as a camouflage for it. One look at the different types of spy cam-objects will reveal that there is no piece of household equipment into which the spy camera cannot be impregnated.
Ok, you’re a regular person, not a detective, and certainly not 007, what could you possibly need a spy device for? It doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re paranoid, but people have been known to set spy cameras on their property as an add-on to the burglar alarm. This especially helps if you live on a large property. The older huge security cameras that always keep moving are not really helpful because burglars have learnt to stay away from their moving line of sight, but with this, they don’t really know where the camera is, or even if there is a camera or not. It would also help in circumstances if you’re a concerned parent leaving your child under the care of a nanny. Yeah, but it is better not to let the nanny know about this because she is not going to feel right about somebody monitoring her activities especially if she is straight and honest.
Who hasn’t always wanted to be a paranormal investigator? If you have an idea that the paranormal entity might be getting smarter at not showing activity when a real camera is around, you could just go throw a pot of plant or a stick of gum in the room with cameras and maybe your video could go into the repository of true scary videos.
Have you seen “Law Abiding Citizen”… the interrogation scene? Remember when Jamie Foxx switches off the recorder and the camera to get Butler to confess? Well, policemen and spies could benefit from spy cameras and even solve a few cases by getting prisoners to confess in a fit of rage or remorse. If you have just opened a new office or even built a new house, these could serve as your immediate and cheapest security options till you install security cameras and sentry men. You could have your own prank-show with security cameras at your school or college or even your workplace. Some delicate applications of them are a test for your spouse’s fidelity and voyeurism. Make sure the latter is legal in your country before installing them in anybody’s private spots.
