Hand-held spy cameras are a relatively new addition to the hidden security camera field. Because they are hand-held or as some call them “body worn” they can have microphones inside so you have the ability to record audio and video. The most common hand-held spy cameras are sunglasses, ball point pens, wristwatches, car key fobs and many more.\nWhat makes them more effective than regular hidden security cameras or hidden spy cameras is the fact that they are mobile-you can move them around from place to place in an instant. This gives you amazing flexibility that you can’t get any other way.\nThe purpose of all hidden cameras is to capture images and audio of people saying or doing things that they shouldn’t be doing. They are very effective at doing that which is why they have become so popular in the last decade, especially.\nTwo of the most popular hand-held cameras are the car flip key camera with DVR and a BIC lighter spy camera with DVR.\n1. The Car Flip Key Spy Camera looks just like a remote car key with a pop out key. But inside is a hidden camera that records video. It also has a tiny microphone for recording audio and the DVR. It is so realistic it will fit into any situation that you’re in. The fake pop out key aides in the illusion.\nIt features motion activated recording for video and will record still pictures as well. This unique product can also be used as a Web Cam. The images are stored on a 4 GB micro SD card. The device will handle up to a 16 GB SD card. This device recharges every time you plug it into a computer and a built-in lithium-ion battery has a working time of approximately 90 minutes.\n2. The second unique hand-held spy camera is the BIC lighter hidden security camera with DVR. It looks just like a BIC lighter but is a sound activated DVR. It records audio and video on a SD card. It has an effective radius of 50 feet and produces excellent video resolution. The sound activation level is 65 dB or about the sound level of a normal conversation.\nThese two hand held spy cameras are unique in their own way and one of them may be perfect for your situation.
