    I seem to recall DisneyDad trying out some video glasses which you can just wear and they'll record whatever you see! I'd love that for some Disney action if they're any good?

    Well since you asked so nicely... I did these last year and will do more this year....just have to practice with the glasses as they only see what you see...turn your head and so does the camera.

    I will be ...I keep them tucked away for my trips....I posted this video after getting them last year to see what they were capable of doing. The only draw back is once you have them on and push the button it takes a lot of peripheral vision to see if the light indicator is blinking (meaning its recording) or solid (meaning it's not). I messed up last year on Soar'n and had it off and didn't know it till I tried to see the video after...hopefully lesson learned.

    Yup...nice and clear....and they see what you see...so if you turn your head quickly the video will turn quickly as well.

    :brickwall::brickwall::brickwall: OK so the new ones charge up and the picture is great but there is no sound. Called HSN and ordered another pair....returning these for credit on the account and hoping that the next pair work fully as I won't have nay time to replace them again after they get here on Tuesday, :hissyfit: I don't need this stress.....I have enough with packing and making sure I have all my ducks in a row.

    :sparklyrainbow: :juggle: OK all better now....replacement glasses came...charged up and recorded with sound :wavehands: so now it's back to last minute planning and thinking about what to video and all. These have a sealed 40 min 8 GB built in SD card...so after 40 mins you have to download to a pc or storage space. I'm hoping to get some video of the resorts as well this trip...I'll try to post as I do them so things are in close to real time.

    Well the glasses I got are not the same model as the ones I had last year...and it shows. I will sort that out when I get home...but for now I did manage a somewhat decent video of Soarn' over the World. I'd turn the volume down low ... the picture is better then some of the others that I didn't post but it still has some streaking and fading.

    It doesn't move as far up as the upper rows....not sure how far off the ground you really are but it sure feels like your flying high .
