A very cool friend of mine does undercover work for Animal Rights Organizations and is looking for a tiny, user-friendly, and good quality camera.

Does anyone know of any gear, use any cameras they like, or hear of anything that is good? User-friendly and NLE-friendly are important in the decision as well. He needs to be able to walk around in the middle of nowhere-type places, far from his car, and be able to operate the equipment himself while working and interacting with others 'undercover'.

Any links or info that I could pass along or any is much appreciated!

Thanks so much and Happy Holidays to all.

Apparently continuing the trend of phones shooting video, you can now buy binoculars that
record video (AVI files -PC compatible.) These are designed I believe for birdwatchers and
may not be great for in tight undercover work but possibly could expose turkey and pigeon
shoots which are sick.

Even real hunters dislike pigeon and turkey shoots. What happens is a bunch of birds are
released into a pen and then people, including kids, line up and blow them away. The pigeons
have (barely) more of a chance but the turkeys don't get away.

I'm not a hunter but I think that there's a big difference between tracking an animal in the bush
for food and shooting one in a pen for fun.
