IT seems that Hongkong employers do not trust their staff. China Sun Industries has received more than 350 enquiries since it launched its range of miniature spy video cameras in Hongkong a few weeks ago. ''Most demand has come from bosses worried that their staff might be pilfering from their companies,'' said China Sun sales manager Lee Scharpf. ''It is said that more is stolen worldwide from companies by their own staff than by outsiders.'' The ''invisible'' closed-circuit television cameras, with miniature five milli_metre lenses, come built into a variety of cheeky disguises - a walk clock, a mirror, even a fire detector. ''We could build cameras into radios, filing cabinets, even perhaps a flower pot. You name it, we could probably do it,'' said Mr Scharpf. Customers can dream up their own innovative housing designs, but like many enjoyable things in life, it costs. China Sun is marketing its quartz wall-clock cameras at $2,492 each, but a one-off personal design could cost up to 20 times that much. All need to be linked to video recorders and television monitors for viewing, which costs extra. They can also come with a secret infra-red lighting box for use in the dark - which adds another $2,691 to the price. China Sun has been exporting its products from Hongkong for a year, but it only recently dawned on the management to sell the cameras locally. ''We never thought about selling them here until someone pointed out to us there would probably be a lot of demand,'' said Mr Scharpf. ''Demand has been excellent. Evidently there's as much suspected stealing going on among staff here as there is, say, in Frankfurt or New York.''
