First Pager Camera Covert Video
As microchip video cameras became the thing to use for covert video, placing them in things one could wear become a great way to capture covert video. During this time period, almost all business people carried pagers. You have to remember that that was before the age of cell phones. Covert video micro cameras were placed in empty pager boxes investigators could wear on their belt and these become highly popular methods to obtain covert video for a while. These units sold for about $495.00 when they first came out. Here is original ad copy for them:
