In the late 1990s Warren Ellis wrote a comic book called Transmetropolitan. It was a gonzo journalist “denouncing the abuse of power and corruption of two consecutive presidents of the United States. Seeking to counter the social injustices around which there is a media silence by its resounding articles.” One of its particularity was the wearing of a pair of fake Oakley sunglasses with integrated camera: The left lens of high quality fake Oakleys is red and round, the right rectangular and green, allowing to manage the video recording and take pictures as soon as he wanted it.
Despite these omissions, this pair of fake Oakley sunglasses sold at $18. Which is one of the devices that will prove extremely useful, since even if it is not expensive. The quality offered by the camera embedded in these replica Oakleys glasses offers an excellent resolution of 5 megapixels.
The fake Oakley sunglasses come in black with buttons that happen to be silver decorations on the outside of the branches. Just press it to run your new camera. Unfortunately, it is not possible to change the knockoff Oakley sunglasses, which may cause problems for some people.
The plastic is thick, but we feel the lightness of the branches. Which is nothing like the style or quality of manufacture of best fake Oakley sunglasses. The glasses come with a soft cloth case, and a micro USB to USB cable is provided for charging and transferring files. Another negative point, the pair does not come with a memory card. But it supports micro SD memory cards up to a size of 32 GB, about 8 hours of continuous video recording.
Thus, you will find the camera on the front of the glasses between the two lenses:
On the right branch, we will find the microphone, a button to reset the device. Another to start recording, an indicator for the status of the recording. The location to insert the micro SD card or still a mini USB port to recharge the glasses
The glasses provide an almost perfect point of view for a first-person view, thanks to the central position of the camera between your eyes. They record exactly what you are looking at, from the angle you are facing.
Since the sensor and lens are so small, the video quality of the glasses is closer to the capabilities of a smartphone camera than a dedicated camera or camcorder. It can record videos in 1080p and 720p or. And can capture photos up to 5 megapixels while recording by pressing the button.
But even at the highest quality setting, recorded video is not particularly outstanding. Regarding the photos, example below, these look surprisingly interesting. But you’ll get better results from a compact camera with a lens and a decent sensor. The audio quality is not of excellent quality.
The foakleys lenses offer an impressive 75 degree angle of life with little or no distortion. A boon when similar action cameras rely on wide lenses at the expense of having a fisheye effect. This is an action camera and its ability to record 720p video is useful for sports or other activities that are suitable for a first-person view.
By having a camera in the middle of a pair of replica Oakley sunglasses. It offers a better view in the first person than any other action camera that I have tested so far.
Even though the design seems to provide a somewhat solid device for its price. If you want to record the video you see at a moment t. This is one of the best options available.
