Advances in sensor and flash memory technology have allowed both cameras and recorders to be built smaller and smaller. A micro video camera system has numerous uses in both security and non-security related applications. It can be used by security or law enforcement personnel in covert or portable surveillance applications, or mounted on a dashboard in a patrol car to record daily operations.
It can also be worn on a helmet, making it a sure hit with race car drivers, snowboarders, skydivers, mountain bikers or anybody else looking to record the action from their point of view. Accounts of supreme athletic feats that up until now have been met with skepticism can now be backed up with cold hard video images with the SUV-Cam II from Elmo.
