Top Spy Cameras

Postby diser on Thu Mar 06, 2008 11:47 pm

Most of the unusual camera designs were invented for miniature and spy cameras. And here is the short list of some interesting solutions.

Of course, every spy needs a gun:
Image
Doryu, Pistolet Camera

And the $1K watch. This is for the old-style spy:
Image
Houghton, Ticka

These ones are for the modern spy:
Image
Steineck, ABC Watch Camera

And these ones are for the hi-tech spy who follows a trend:
Image
Steinheil, Detective Camera

Pack of KGB cigarettes:
Image
Kiev Arsenal, John Player Spy Camera

And a small lighter for them:
Image
Suzuki Kogaku, Echo 8 CBS

A huge finger-ring wouldn't hurt. At least it's made from gold!
Image
Ferrogian Paulo, Ferro GF

Walking stick is a must:
Image
Lehmann, Ben Akiba Walking Stick

Compass instead of GPS:
Image
Compass Cameras (Lecoultre Schweiz), Compass

Block note-like camera:
Image
Vega, Vega

And the hi-tech guy can bring a radio-camera (tell me about iPhone, yeah):
Image
G.E.C., Transistomatic

Of course every spy should get a REAL spy camera to put it somewhere. In the ear for example:
Image
KGB, Microdot Camera (1mm diameter exposures)

Also there could be a need for underwater (technically, not a spy camera):
Image
Rollei, Rolleimarin 4 Hans Hass

Or aerial equipment:
Image
Linhof, Aero Technika 45

Get these items and you are all set for any spy job! :)

Note that there are 3 more links to information on the camera-wiki page.
Have a look at some of the cameras in my collection:
