I bought this POV Camera Eyewear for my Android Applications and product video reviewing, hoping they would allow me to get free of trying to frame product shots and freely use my tablet without having to deal with a stand. Unfortunately, the focal distance is far too great with these, even snugged down on my nose. The focal distance seems to be about 14″ from where my eyes are actually looking straight ahead. In my video demonstration, I was actually staring at the base of my laptop, my laptop screen being about 32″ away.

Picture, as you can see for yourself, is really good. The audio does leave a lot to be desired, however. The audio is not quite as warbly as my video makes it out to be, but in it’s natural, uncompressed AVI file state, it’s much clearer yet just as loud with muffled distortion. The file size restriction Amazon has on video reviews forced me to compress the file a bit, causing the audio to lose a bit of definition. Unfortunately, between the audio and the far too distant focal point, I simply can’t use this camera. Nevertheless, I can certainly see how these would be phenomenal for distance recording although the camera does pick up every little tilt of the head (I really was concentrating on keeping my head still during the demonstration).

The included instructions are rather poor (and as far as I can tell, a bit inaccurate), but the actual operation of these glasses are indeed easy. One long press of the PLAY button, you turn them on, and the blue light comes on, a steady light. This is STANDBY. Press PLAY once, and the blue light will start flashing, and about after a pause of a couple seconds, actual recording begins. Press the Play button again, and it goes into STANDBY.

Then when ready, you can simply plug the glasses into a USB port with the included cable with either the camera completely off or the solid blue light showing (STANDBY), and blam! There are the files! It did take me a few tries to get my laptop to recognize the camera, but once done, it’s pretty simple, so simple that I still feel disappointed I can’t use them. 🙁

They come in a rather mediocre quality hardshell case with interchangeable lenses, a cleaning cloth, the USB cord that is used both for file transfers and the included wall charger. I have to admit I was initially surprised by the millimeter Auxiliary style of plugin used for the camera itself, doing double duty for both file transfers as well as charging, but it worked flawlessly for both.

All in all, a nifty camera that just didn’t work out for me.
