Cyclops Gear CGLife 2 glasses good for fast hands-free video
I'm Josh Goldman, with CNET.
And if you're interested in shooting hands-free video, but don't feel like dealing with housings and mounts, you can pick up a pair of these, the Cyclops Gear CGLife 2 HD video glasses.
And this tiny protruding camera in front, right between the eyes, is capable of capturing video at up to 1920 by 1080, at 25 frames per second, and snapping 15-megapixel
Though that's an interpolating resolution as its CMOS sensor is 5-megapixels.
Still you need only press this button, on the left, to start recording video in AVI format to a microSD card.
The default recorded resolution is 1440 by 1080, at 30 frames per second.
And the results are okay.
Nothing you'd wanna look too closely at, but possible for viewing on mobile devices in its small sizes.
It's not great in low light, so you'll definitely want to have light as much as possible too.
And quite possibly, keep your head tilted to the left, as all of my video was slightly slighted down to the right.
You can record at 720p, or full HD.
But to change settings, you have to connect them to a computer, and save a text document to a microSD card.
Also, while it has a micro USB port, it's not the kind use by most mobile devices.
They are lightweight though, and the polarized lenses are easily removed, if you wanna record when you have less light.
Cyclops Gears sells these for about $150 on its site.
But if you can do without the branding quick eBay search for HD video sunglasses turns up a generic pair for around $90 bucks.
Regardless of where you get them, for no fuss, hands-free video, they'll do the trick.
