Pics of you wearing them, comments on ease/difficulty of operation and a sample vid or two please!

$29 including the sunglasses, I am not expecting too much. But after trying to wedge a tripod tight into my car to hold a camera for driving vids, and STILL getting vibrations, I am intrigued by this option, even if it is a throwaway after a few uses.

I've got a Palm Pre, which takes pretty good video- I've thought about getting a glass-mount holder for it, which would make for a pretty simple and bad-ass video mount. Might get a little shakey, as every movement of the car would be transmitted to the video, but it would be super-simple.

Did the sunglass video camera get delivered? Have you had a chance to try them?

I was out again this weekend with my video cam setup in my SLK. My tripod gets very unhappy in tight corners that have a big bump too. I need video camera headwear or maybe a nice, reliable suction cup mount.

I did get them delivered.
They are defective. Only video for 6 seconds at a time and then turned off.
What can you expect for $30. LOL

I am sending them back for exchange.

The video quality was very good. I was surprised.

I'm hoping to get them back quickly.

Curious to see how it all turns out. Maybe post a sample video. Can the lenses be changed to prescription ones?

Nice stylish glasses. A little bulky on the sides where the battery is stored. Very light weight.
I do not think these lenses are replaceable. I didn't really check for that but I see some on ebay do show different colored replaceable lenses.

This model just has the camera in it. I see other models on ebay that have
MP3 players and FM radio and Bluetooth in them for about the same price.

Search on ebay for "Video spy Glasses"

I just ordered a suction cup mount for in car videos:

Panavise 809 Camera Window Suction Cup Mount only $23 on Amazon and fairly highly rated.

Still curious about the sunglasses video cam, especially if your replacements give you a reasonable length video.

Thanks again for the info!

Very nifty indeed. I'd totally feel like a spy with those.

I found them on sale everywhere however NONE of them actually state how long they will record for with the 2/4/or 8 GB card. hmmmm.

My buddy has a helmet camera he takes when he races his bikes. I think that might be a better idea. They're rechargeable and pretty sturdy.
