Still camera's are often overlooked in favor for camcorders. But remember that each piece of gear has its place. Camera's tend to have much higher resolution than camcorders and sometimes can reveal evidence not picked up by video recording. Just as with audio recorders the type of camera is a personal choice. Some people prefer film camera's and others want cameras that have been modified for IR or full spectrum. Some investigators also use IR trap cameras to try and capture evidence based on motion detection. Again, these are all things that are based on personal preference and budget.
