I am trying to use camera glasses for documenting benchwork.

Most of available models allow 1 to max 2h hours of recording for as long as the battery lasts and only allow next recording after the battery is recharged (3h).

I need either to continuously stream or to make long recordings with low frame rate (5/second). I don't mind walking around with a bunch of wires or having a power supply connected continuously to the glasses.

Can somebody recommened a model of camera glasses or perhaps a clipon camera which allows to adjust frame rate, allows streaming (that is optional) but most importantly allows recording while connected to power source.

Thanks so much in advance!!


A GoPro camera can be connected to a power source and can record for a long time. There are numerous ways to attach one to your head (or safety goggles).

  • Thanks so much for responding. I'll consider using the GoPro. I was thoughtthinking of something less bulky. Besides I need to record what a technitian is doing literally with his hands. I assume the GoPro would provide more of a "from top" type of view. – ein_io Jan 8 '17 at 20:33
  • n.b. The best way to express thanks is by actually up-voting a useful answer. Merely saying thanks is actually a good way to get your comment deleted (across all of stackexchange, not just the video group). – Michael Tiemann Jan 8 '17 at 21:13
  • I tried voting your asnwer up a couple of times – it says " Votes cast with less then 15 reputation are recorded but do not change publicly displayed score ". Sorry about that. Despite what you say I still believe in the eternal power of good old " thank you " :) – ein_io Jan 9 '17 at 8:58
