Hidden camera in "Chicken Soup for the Soul"

chicken%20soup%20for%20soul.jpgI'm having a hard time picturing this tech set-up. What kind of video camera was this guy using in order to pull this off? And was he shooting in HD?

Via The Los Angeles Times:

A Carpinteria man has been arrested for allegedly spying on a woman with a video camera secretly tucked into a copy of "Chicken Soup for the Soul.’"

The 30-year-old woman found the camera trained on her bed through a hole cut near the inspirational volume’s spine.

Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s detectives arrested Donald Lee Bedford, 54, Thursday and seized computers and other items from his home.

They also found recordings in the camera of the woman and her boyfriend "in various states of undress,’’ according to a Sheriff’s Department spokesman.

Bedford is a friend of one of the victim's relatives, authorities said.
