As video recording devices get smaller, we’re getting to the point where we can easily record countless aspects of our lives. Think about skiing down a black diamond run and recording everything you experience from your point of view. Or maybe zip-lining through the jungles of Costa Rica or hiking through the Grand Canyon.
With the Pivothead HD recording sunglasses, capturing all of these experiences on video is not only possible but very easy. Just wear these stylish sunglasses or one of their other models and you’re on your way with effortless, hands-free video and audio recordings.
We tried out the Durango model pictured about and the videos turned out great. All of the controls are on the left side and are very easy to use, and as you can see the sunglasses look great so you’ll fit right in and look great as well.
The Pivothead unit we tested captures 1080p HD video @ 30 fps, along with 720p @ 60fps and 720p @ 30fps, and uses a 8MP Sony CMOS Image Sensor. You can use all sorts of settings to customize the type of videos or photos you’ll capture, including Auto, Continuous, Fixed, and Macro Focus Settings, and you can also get up to 16-shot rapid burst still photos and time lapse burst still shots at various intervals. Just experiment with the various settings and you’ll find what works best for different situations.
The sunglasses come with a handy protective carry case along with a USB 2.0 cable for easy transfer of your videos and photos. You’ll be packing it for all your vacations and we’re sure you’ll come up with all sorts of interesting ways to use these things.
