      Comments about 1080p Video Recording Sunglasses (Durango Glacier Blue):

      Frankly, I'm an adult video producer,and bought these glasses to give us another perspective in our shooting.The video is not only crisp, it POPS, and the mic's quality was an added surprise. We also like that you can fine tune their shooting capabilities by pluging them into your computer.Just wish they were able to accept SD cards.

          Comments about 1080p Video Recording Sunglasses (Recon Black Jet):

          I bought this for the purpose of recording class lectures, and also my son's basketball and soccer games in the weekends. It's so easy to use, and easy to retrieve data from. Most people also do not suspect it's anything other than just a normal piece of eyewear.
          Once, I was at a game recording with my eyewear and a friend next to me began unloading private matters to me and had no idea I was in the middle of recording, and so of course I touched the side button to turn it off.

          Also, I've used this in class to record lectures a couple of times now, and what I find is, I need to figure out how to zoom in and out. I haven't had the chance to look at the instructions thoroughly, but hopefully that's an option because I need to zoom in somehow to just focus on the lecture board or projection because right now it's far away on the videos and I could really benefit from being able to zoom in.

          About the video quality, it's really not bad. It's pretty good mostly, but a couple of the videos were too dark. If there was an auto white balance setting that would be awesome so that the videos come out bright enough and also to prevent any unsightly color casts on the videos.

          Regarding the style, well, when I have on the clear lenses (when I'm indoors), I feel I look like I'm wearing safety glasses because of the style and it's also a tad too big on my face. It's not as bad with the tinted lenses on, which kind of camouflage the bulky nose rubber part and the bulky sides of the glasses. In the end, it does the job of recording.

          A closer look on the glasses shows that it's made in China, although the product seems to be durable. It's rubberized and bendable. All in all, I'm glad of this purchase.

            Comments about 1080p Video Recording Sunglasses (Durango Chameleon):

            I have no hesitation giving these glasses five stars. They work great. I have a couple of suggestions. First, you can extend their operating battery time, about one hour with the internal battery, by replacing the included USB cord, that contains a choke, with one that does not and long enough to connect the glasses to a USB device charger battery that you carry in a pocket. This will also prevent the glasses from turning off after a few minutes when not recording. Also it helps to carry and shoot a white card so you can better set white balance in post. Also includes a sturdy case with clip and belt loop.
