Hidden spy cameras have come along way it even in the last five years in terms of technological advances and price competition. They are more affordable than ever before and easier to use than ever before. It used to be that only government agencies could afford them. Nowadays you can get several hidden spy cameras for under $150.00 some for less than $100.00. Spy cameras are board cameras hidden inside objects that people are used to seeing everyday. Those products are usually working products to keep the deception at a high level. Usually hidden cameras require a power outlet to power the product which means that they can only be used in that location. There is a line of hidden spy cameras that includes not only the camera and DVR but also a mini microphone-making them the ultimate spy tool. They are called “body worn” cameras and are the only cameras that can legally have a microphone inside them. The added dimension that they bring to the spy game is that they are portable and require no outside power source. Now it is true that the capabilities of these are not like their powered brothers but they do have their place-a very specialized place in the world of covert spy cameras.
