    The performance of modern cameras is pretty impressive these days but I personally don't like the "box on a pole" types. I think they look ridiculous and they get in the way. My own choice is the Stealth by Drift Innovation. Good video camera with about 3 hours recording life, USB rechargeable and still, burst, delay, video and tagging modes. Useful Bluetooth facility to view pics via your mobile phone. Biggest advantage in my book is its very low profile.

    Edit: they have discontinued the Stealth and now only do the Ghost, it's a higher spec model but still much more discreet and streamlined than the box cameras.

    Or use this?
