The Vid-Shield Police body video camera not only records in High Definition but it also shoots 12 mega pixels still images, equivalent to the best digital cameras in the world.
Now there has often been a large downside for the police departments wearing the video cameras. This will be the fairest interpretation you will find on the web.
Here are the pros and cons for police body cameras:
- The police body camera, is activated by the officer and it is up to them to choose when to hit record.
- The camera body has only the ability to see what the officers are looking directly at when it is in the record mode.
- Most cameras have a very limited battery life and can not record more than 8 hours.
- The field of view is often limited to 90 degrees or at most 130 degrees, so clipping off the edges of the video might have missed the evidence everybody needed to see.
- Recharging the cameras take 4-6 hours before it can record a full shift.
- The best police body cameras record in high definition or HD 1080P. This gives you a larger field of view.
- The intelligent body cameras can shoot still images as well as videos and can do both at the same time.
- Evidence gathered on these cameras often reflect the entire situation and can give both sides of the argument without a lawyer's intervention.
- The video protects both the citizen and the police agency.
- If the police department has a body worn written policy, it goes a long way in setting the code of ethics for the law enforcement agency.
- The body worn cameras can be deployed into houses and bars were in the past, no video could travel. This is the one advantage that personal body cameras have over police in-car cameras.

I have done my research concerning police cameras that are worn on the uniform. Most the cameras I have seen have some type of drawback. The 3 things you should be looking for are the following. 1. Does the police body camera record in 1080P a must. 2. Does the body worn camera have night vision to see incidents in the dark. 3. The last and final thing to look for is that the camera have a changeable battery pack. Ok what does this mean.
