    Pivothead 1LD2 reviews

    Durango Bronze 1080p Video Recording Sunglasses is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little Gift = Big Surprise! That one extra little Christmas gift equaled one BIG surprise. I simply like taking and editing video...any time, any place with any camera. Got Durangos almost as a lark and have been really impressed. Right out of box, charged up and shooting. Driving car, impressed with clarity and focus. Sound excellent but, understandably, sensitive to wind.. Walking in variable light through shopping mall very good on move but, of course, bouncy due to my walking and movement. Standing on street corner, taking care to slowly move head in panning, excellent following moving objects, focus and definition. In low light walking through house OK but much better outside in daylight. Easy on/off switching without removing glasses. Simple download to computer for any editing. Still early and just scratching the surface on applications but, so far, this is a sweet little addition to my hands-free shooting flexibility particularly for that secondary frame or two when shooting with primary camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product , don't give up on set up well worth it These camera glasses work fantastic love them . When I wear them waliking , or in a car , or inside , they are amazing . When I ride my Harley Davidson with just the camera glasses it records all the wind sounds very loud , but when I use my helmet with a face shield its nice and quiet no wind sound . Just a heads up to know . But still I love theses camera glasses . Work great

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from pretty disapointed i'm not the kind of guy who says easily that he is disappointed, since i'm always searching for a solution. But i bought two different pairs of Pivothead's glasses, and it worked for a few times (quality of the video seemed pretty good). But now, it seems that the drivers don't respond, neither with the latest version of macosx, nor with the latest windows. So i couldn't load any of my latest vidos. What a shame for the price. In addition, sometimes the record mode is locked, i don't know why. I have to wait for the battery to fade... pretty boring. Last point, and not the least, don't try to take some of winter sports footages, like skiing. It's a waste of time. Go for a go pro. It's much more reliable.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Product! Turns off and on, sometimes won't even turn on, records 60% of the time and runs so hot it burns your face. Stay far away!!!
