    Act like you are talking to someone while putting the phone direcy in front of your mouth while secretly filming.

    I was thinking about something hands free. So I can use both hands to play.

    When you say "Unwanted attention," Do you mean from Casino Staff or other Gamblers? Because with other Gamblers/People begging for money you can "Excitedly" say,"Now I'm only down $1500 with this win!" Many people will hesitate a lot to ask someone for money who won a big win but claimed they are still down a lot of money. Casino staff might be lenient if you promise to only film YOUR machine and nothing else. I remember a complaint being made about gamblers filming other people in casinos without their permission and putting the videos in Youtube. "I'd be so pissed if someone filmed me without my permission and put it on Youtube!"

    As I said in my original post I want to video MY OWN play. I would like to do it hands free with out any unwanted attention from anyone. End of the day I want to review my play to see if there is any room for improvement, and maybe post jackpots on this site or Twitter.

    they have many good HD 720p-1080p with audio spy pens on the market for under $100 and I think the average is about $50. it fits in your top pocket and you can't tell it a camera pen. it's only a bit fatter than a normal cross pen.

    Personaly I think you need two, because of battery issues. they claim xy and z time however that's just not the truth when it comes to normal conditions. Don't ever purchase one at a spy shop no matter what they tell you. they sell the exact same product for 6 times the amount you can get it online for. If you are in Vegas you can get one at the indoor swap meet on Oakey and Decatur. They always get new products in, so its hit or miss getting the one you really want. They charge a bit more than online, but the guy will make you a deal, and you don't have you wait. I think they are only open Fri, Sat, and Sun.

    I'm not sure if it's just me or they need to be handled with care when extracting the SD and charging because both of mine i had the guts pulled out when I was doing whatever. they can repair them easily by yourself, but it's still a pain in the ass. te make nice looking camera watches that are no bigger than a normal watch. I have one but it is still in the box. that's probably best for a situation where you are not all that interested in getting a great video angle,(like if you were pulled over by the cops or you were getting backroom) they battery like is short as well.

    p.s. I think they go up to 64 gigs on the SD card if you get one where you can remove it.

    Without concerning myself about the ethics of covert recording...

    I've experience of watch-cams, keyring-cams, miniature enclosed cams and pen cams and one other sort.

    Watch-cams: Generally hard to look natural when using one. Shakey. Poor battery life.
    Keyring cams: OK if you want to leave it lying around to record activity in a room, but generally hard to get a good angle without it being conspicuous. Poor battery life.
    Miniature enclosed cams: Better, but can be conspicuous: Poor battery life.
    Pen cams: Good for discretion and angle. Poor battery life.

    And my favourite. A camera where the 'eye' is like a tiny button on a 6" cable and the recording and battery elements can be in an inner pocket. Incredibly discrete if fitted to a shirt. Unlimited battery life.

    Here's a bare bones one. Easy to fit in a plastic matchbox sized box.

    I wear prescription Glasses so I would have to get a special made pair. The more research I do, the more I'm leaning towards button cameras or baseball cap cameras. My research has shown short battery life on pen and eye glass cameras. I have seen baseball cap cameras and button cameras where you can have a usb charger wired to them and they work while they are charging. Does anyone have any thoughts on which one is best. Again, this is for my own play. I want to review later to possibly find improvements, and/or post highlights here or on Instagram.

    You don't have to keep mentioning your own play. It's your business what you want to use it for.

    I have taken videos on my $50 Wally World tablet- also my Tracfone that I keep on hand just in case. Just a matter of adjusting it in my fanny pack or whatever you can dream up.
