Camera’s are an integral part of today’s society. Whether we want to admit it or not we are always being watched from a security camera or a friend recording. This is not creating the ‘big brother’ society that people fear. Instead, we are moving to a point where life is documented as it is happening. No false histories or second hand accounts. We are able to see the world live.

Events happen in an instant and are done. Hidden cameras allow us to quickly capture these events and keep them in perpetuity. Reporters have embraced this for the search for truth in events. Events can’t be negated when documented on film.

Documentary filmmakers have also made a career of documenting ‘real life’. Some have even gone further with hidden cameras. Recently, filmmaker Rob Spence installed a prosthetic hidden camera eye in order to capture life as we really perceive it.

Now it is getting easier and easier for everyone to be their own news crew. With sites like Youtube we can show our videos to others and invite them to view what we have captured from our world. The integration of cameras everywhere has opened our sights to both the good and the ugly, but allows us to choose which we want to view and how we act in response.

“Duct Tape Bandit” Kasey Kazee barged in to Shamrock Liquors in Ashland, Kentucky with duct tape wrapped around his head to conceal his face. While proceeding with this preposterous crime Kazee was met by store manager Bill Steele who had some duct tape of his own. Steele grabbed a wooden club wrapped in duct tape and proceeded to chase the masked moron outside into the store’s parking lot.

Hidden cameras can be hidden virtually everywhere and secretly record the actions of unsuspecting parties. They can capture co-workers slacking off, perverts soliciting prostitutes, drug addicts purchasing from dealers, criminals breaking the law, or a cheating spouse, well, cheating. Perhaps the most popular use of a hidden camera is to keep a watchful eye on your babysitter. Many safety conscious parents secretly tape caretakers, sometimes with horrifying results.
