Great Low Price
- Record on the go
You can record videos on the go without having to hold an expensive camera.
- Sports Uses
Sports coaches who are often outdoors and need to be able to film plays for review can benefit greatly from these glasses. Wearing them as one would normally wear glasses, sporting coaches can record plays on the field or court, then review them with the team immediately after. This allows for improved coaching and better techniques for players. Referees can refer back to plays to check for violations.
Photographers can use these glasses to capture images that they would not normally be able to get. Things that you might see at random, unexpectedly while on a walk, are now things that can be captured with the camera. While the settings are not anywhere close to as vast as an SLR camera, it is still something, better than nothing.
Parents can use the glasses as a way to keep tabs on their children while playing, but also take some candid photos. Candid photos are what parents love most about children’s photography but capturing them can be challenging especially if children see the camera in your hands. In fact, when children are playing in public places, making videos of your children with a phone means you run the risk of someone passing by and stealing your phone. You do not run that risk here, because people do not know you are recording.
Travelers who see something beautiful but want to be reverent, such as visiting a church, can now take video of a scene without holding up a camera.
- Be Careful Where You Record
In very few situations where one might use the sunglasses with a camera, is it acceptable to film. Most consumers who have such glasses use them for recording in places where recording is not allowed, or frowned upon. Some parents have mentioned using them as a way to record events without having to take their eyes off their children, such as recitals. However, with these being sunglasses and not clear glasses, any indoor events would not work well.
- Small Memory Provided
The SD card provided is not very big in terms of storage capacity so you might consider buying another one to replace it once you start using the glasses. What’s more, you will not really be able to record hours and hours of content given that you are recording in HD. HD quality means bigger files. Bigger files means reduced time you can record. This is just something to bear in mind while using the glasses.
- Obey the Law
What most people fail to realize is that getting audio recording of someone else without their explicit consent is illegal. It does not matter if you are playing around or if you are purposefully spying. This is still against the law. For this reason, all closed caption and security cameras lack any audio. Security feed can only legally record the scene, not the sound. Citizens are held to that same law, but with modern cell phone recordings most people do not realize that they are violating the law.
Since people who are illegally recorded might not ever know it, or are not familiar with the law, those who record illegally are almost never brought to court on charges. However, you are still liable and at risk if you record audio from anyone else without their permission. These glasses do not have an option to alleviate audio and only record video. You must be very careful about who/what you record while wearing them.
How It Works
Said glasses function as normal sunglasses, protecting your eyes from UV rays. Additionally, they double as a camera that you can use to capture images from your point of view. Snap Vision glasses are wire free with an undetectable camera that records 1080 p HD video and audio. Its camera is lightweight, discreet, and perfect for conducting covert surveillance. The glasses are indistinguishable from other sunglasses, with the micro SD card slot hidden in the side of the frames.
When you order the set you can a carrying case, the glasses, a rag with which to keep the lens clean, in addition to an SD chip with converter cable. The cable allows you to transfer the video material you record to your computer. .
How it's Different from Competitors
Snap Vision glasses are different from most glasses with cameras because they are sporty sunglasses. The most popular camera glasses with recording devices are almost exclusively clear lens frames, like normal glasses. It is very hard to find other sun glass versions on the market. Like other glasses though, the recording devices are built into the sides, which is why the sides of the frames are so bulky compared to the sleek, thinner frames of normal sunglasses. However, they are not so large that they look out of place.
