    Jase do yours just work as described in the instructions? Basically mine turn on ok and I have the solid blue light but when I press and hold the record button the blue light doesn't start to flash and then the glasses switch off after about 30 seconds.

    Haha yeah I've charged them for over 12 hours and I have tried 2 different memory cards and formatted them incase that made any difference.

    I'm an IT engineer so don't worry about getting a bit more technical ;-)

    The one supplied is a 2gb one but I had a spare 1gb card laying about and it wouldn't work with that either. The glasses turn on they just won't go into record mode when I press and hold the camera button!

    D'oh.... I had Dell delivera PC the other day to a place in Gloucester which is a bit 'dodgy' shall we say...

    They delivered it there by mistake, god knows how. We'll never see that again.

    Whoever took delivery must of thought is was Christmas.

    They basically wont go into record mode. The instructions say press and hold the camera button until the blue light starts flashing but that doesn't happen :(

    I've emailed the seller and awaiting their reply.

    Got mine yesterday n had the same problem at first, think there is just a knack to it as I eventually got it to record as well as take photos. I'll post a video in a bit as the picture quality is pretty good. You don't look very cool in them though lol.

    I want some! Purely for the above reasons of midnight movie making!!! Oh, and Welly...I actually laughed at the night fever comment and got the office stare-down's again! :busted_cop:

    The quality is impressive, I must admit. My mate has a similar style jobbie for his bike helmet as he's sick of getting knocked off. I'd say the quality was a little better, but it cost him £70, so you'd expect that. Thanks for uploading the video.
