A 43-year-old man has been jailed for 10 months after admitting voyeurism and making indecent images of a child.
Tony Faiers, formerly of Bacton, near Stowmarket, was sentenced at Ipswich Crown Court after previously pleading guilty to the offences.
The court heard a movie filmed secretly of a child was found on his iPad.
The same indecent moving image was also found on other devices belonging to Faiers.

The image was made sometime on or before April last year.
Jo Eley, mitigating for Faiers, said her client was remorseful.

She told the court: “He’s coming to terms with what he has done. He regrets his actions.”
Miss Eley said the images were downloaded onto a computer and then onto an iPad.
It was stressed that it was one set of images rather than downloading separate images on separate dates.
Faiers has no previous convictions and was described as a “hard-working man”.
Miss Eley said: “He has sought help for himself and has been seeking help from a psychologist to address all the issues he has in life.”
Judge John Devaux told Faiers he was aware the moving image lasted no more than 10 minutes and that three offences of making indecent images all related to the same footage.
However, he described Faiers explanation to probation officers during the compilation of a pre-sentence report as “humbug”, adding: “The explanation was absurd.”
In addition to his jail term Faiers was made the subject of a 10-year sexual harm prevention order and will have to register as a sex offender for the same length of time.
Faiers must also pay £600 costs.
