... this would not have to be a "Flip" type device, however it would have to be some type of recorder/camera combination small enough to be attached to my work vest or- carried in a pocket, and the camera would have to be mounted "hands-free" to my clothing or to a cap (I wear a "baseball style" cap) to keep dust and debris out of my hair.

I'm home inspector, and currently record inspection information by using a combination of a digital voice recorder and a conventional digital still camera.
Recently I've found myself wondering if there is a way to use a continuously recording "FLIP" style camcorder in place of my digital voice recorder (I would still take high-resolution still pictures of individual defects for inclusion in reports) - the idea would be that I would be able to "replay" any portion of the inspection required to extract additional detail.
For this to work however I would need a way to "mark" events for which I was taking audio notes, and then some way to "fast forward" to these marks within whatever software I was using on my PC to review the recording - and this marking operation would have to be straightforward (preferably, something I could do in a second or two) and preferably something I could do with one hand as I often have flashlights or tools and the other.
I know this is a lot to ask of a simple consumer device, but it occurred to me that it might be a capability built into one or more of them - it seems like a thing that people would logically want to do.
Any suggestions would be appreciated,
