Does Wearing a Baseball Hat Defeat Video Surveillance?

In our previous thread, we discussed why video surveillance is necessary. From that discussion, we concluded that video cameras are normally mounted high up off the ground, to prevent tempering. That means a burglar could wear a baseball cap to avoid the face being captured on video. Theoretically, that's possible, but has anyone captured a burglar with a baseball cap on video?

Even if you don't capture the burglar's face, due to the baseball cap, you do capture his/her profile. That includes the baseball cap and the other characteristics of the outfit. They are all valuable evidence.

In addition to the security cams that are mounted high, mount a hidden camera low to capture the face. A hidden camera generally solves the tempering problem.

Thoughts? Real experiences?
