  1. Excellent Quality Video - Great Product

    Posted by jb on 14th Aug 2016

    I purchased the Durango Glasses in order to capture video while I'm out and about. They do a great job!

    Do not confuse these with some of the cheaply made glasses cams on the market. The pivothead product is built with quality in mind. The switches/buttons are sturdy. The flashing red light is on the inside of the left side of the frame, not visible to anyone but me.

    I also love the way the pivothead Desktop software allows me to easily change settings on the glasses from my computer. I can turn the mic on or off, change video recording resolution and more with a few quick mouse clicks.

    These glasses allow you to take "semi-covert" video. Yes, you can see the lens on the front of the glasses; however, there's no way for anyone you encounter to know whether or not the camera is recording. Throw on a hat and some work clothes and they look a lot like a pair of Safety Glasses.

    The ONLY issue I've had with these glasses is that they don't keep very good time. If the tame/date stamp is critical for you, these may not be the glasses for you. On the other hand, the Desktop software makes it easy to turn the time/date stamp off - as I have.

    If I could make 1 suggestion, it would be to include a slot for external storage. The 8 GB of internal storage is very good, but I still prefer to save to a Micro SD card.

    I gave these video glasses 5 Stars because they are the best I've tried, and I've tried quite a few. They do a great job at a very reasonable price!

  2. Very satisfied!

    Posted by Ben on 3rd Aug 2016

    So far it's been a great product. Durable, great picture and sound quality, and easy to use with simple instructions. My only complaint is the camera sits every so slightly above eye level so you record ever so slightly above eye level. Other than that it's a fantastic product! Good job pivothead!

  3. Very Good Camera glasses

    Posted by Mark Lewis on 1st Jun 2016

    I purchased this product about a month ago for the primary (but not only use) to video my daughter's soccer games. First - This is a great product:

    1. Easy to use. Camera follows exactly what you are seeing.
    2. Picture and Video quality is excellent at 1080 p HD
    3. The recording sound is super high quality
    4. The software for firmware updates and configuration setting is easy to use.
    5. Glasses were unnoticable as a camera by others so looked natural instead of wearing goggles.

    Disadvantages or wish list items:
    1. Wish camera had a zoom capability as standing far away shows the same as you are seeing. It would be great to have a zoom in/out function switch.
    2. Battery lasts about 1 hour. Would be nice if it could go longer like 2 hours.
    3. Waterproofing would be nice and hear it is coming to wear and video water sports

  4. Exactly what I needed

    Posted by Unknown on 23rd Apr 2015

    The Pivotheads have given me capability that the GoPro never did. I needed a discreet method of filming training videos for an industry that deals with high profile clients who don't always feel comfortable seeing a camera being waived around or mounted on the person serving them. We do not include celebrities or sports figures in our training videos but the methods we use to service them are crucial to our training programs success. Pivotheads have allowed us to create discreet but comprehensive hands-on training for a very sensitive set of clientele without sacrificing their sense of privacy and security.

  5. Kool Camera Glasses

    Posted by Unknown on 14th Jan 2015

    The Durango Glasses are kool looking and they actually record video and pics in HD. The buttons are very easy to use and there is very little to not understand about there operation. The mic picks up sounds very well, which is a nice added touch for sound quality with the video. They are comfortable to wear and for the price are an awesome purchase. Shipping was next day and packaging was done right.

    This is way better than having to wear some kind of mount on top of your head to record your point of view.......Thanks Pivothead!

    The App for Iphone for the glasses is easy to use, free, and I am able to transfer vid's and pics via Wifi directly to my phone using the Air Sync. I can clear the 8Gb memory each time I transfer the vid's to my Iphone, which is great!

    Great Product with a Great Price.......
