Muvi Spy Cam

Okay, here is the next piece of kit we have... the MUVI Spy Cam. The quality of the picture is pretty poor, but there are certainly some effects it can be used for. It has a clip on it, so perhaps it might be good for chase scenes. The ol' "Shaky Cam" (a la Blair Witch Project) can be used to create a disoriented effect, and is useful for first person "Point of View" shots.
Check out this vid of Mr Egan beating me up. This is not a fake video... I just happened to have the camera running when he attacked me.
