    OK, so this might be the wrong section, but a colleague came in to work today, plonked his laptop down and showed me the (boring) drive into work. . . taken with these beauties!!

    99p + 12£ postage from China. How epic is that?? Now we can film Tim's races!

    No idea how a mate found them, presume he was searching for track day cameras for his kit car.

    JD i'm guessing that your mates glasses have onboard memory? Can you find out how much it has because I might have to buy a 2gb SD version to get a few laps worth of footage on.

    No worries pal. Answer is he's not at his desk! But will ask, unless you've found it? His drive to work was 25 mins which wasn't bad!

    He can't mate, unfortunately. Put it this way, we had it on full screen on WMP ona 15" screen and it looked good. Not one of these ***** iPhone Real1 player videos where you can just make out mountains.

    We had a kick about earlier in the sun and you can see the writing on the ball regardless of distance (tennis ball sized novelty stress ball).

    Not sure i'd like to wear glasses like that :jester: the one i linked weight nothing and are the size of a lighter. Can strap them to the front of your car with abit of tape or hide them in the grille.

    they car record for ~7hours and the quality really is good for what they are.

    make sure you buy a 'class 6' memory card (amazon £15ish for 8GB) as there record 30FPS straight to them, ebay ones are often fakes and will lower quality.

    and

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlmoB5tlx-M

    (youtube does lower quality when you upload so...)

    I;ve got one and never used it, but for what it is the quality is damn good.

    Lol.

    Had a thought yesterday; mate of mine is coming back from the 'Stan for two weeks R&R this weekend. If I buy them now, could get them across here in a week or two and be a perfect pressie for him as he loves mountain biking and skiing!

    Lol.

    We were talking at work yesterday late on about these and the guy that found them mentioned that they do watches and key fob cameras as well. How much fun could you have with these, seriously!

    Agreed pal. Think, you can use it for so many things, not just driving; sports, perving, days out on the piss AKA Sundays etc

    Thought of that already.... "My hayfever is playing up really badly today - I need to wear these special prescription sunglasses....."

    "But it's night time"

    "I have a rare condition - night hayfever, not to be confused with night fever....."

    Yeah you're not allowed them but if the camera is concealed within glasses they will never notice. It beats asking your passenger to hide the camera under their top then start filming once you're through the barrier!
