Caution: DO NOT record towards the sun or it will damage the

camera. Eye-View1080HD is not waterproof. It will

resist sweat and humidity, but do not splash the

camera especially with salt water. Do not leave on

dash of a car. Treat as you would a normal camera.

Suggested uses for two resolutions:

These glasses have two resolutions with different viewing angles. Here are our recommendations. Generally you want to use 720 for anything that happens close to the camera because of the super wide angle. You would also want to use 720 for any action that you may want to slow down. You would use 1080 for any activity that happens farther from the camera or if you want that beauty shot. 1080 looks better than 720 on the big screen.

Note: Resolution can only be changed with the ‘eyeofmine_Setting.txt’ file.

A) To turn on, simply press the right side button for 2 seconds. You will see the blue LED light on the inside right turn on and then start blinking. **Note that you’ll need to wait about 10 seconds for the camera to turn on and start recording. Experiment before using at a real event. The left black side button does nothing. While recording, the rear LED should be solid green. If you see it blinking while recording that means the battery is low and it will shut off soon. We recommend checking to make sure the camera is still recording occasionally. Do this by pulling the glasses away from your eye about 1 inch and you will see the blinking blue LED in your peripheral vision. There is no way to see what resolution you are recording in. Check the eyeofmine_Setting.txt on a computer or smart phone.
B) To stop recording, press the same black side button on the right for about 2 seconds. This stops recording and turns off the camera. You’ll see the blue LED stop blinking.

C) If camera is not working properly, please the reset button with a sharp object for 3 seconds (see diagram).
D) Setting the Date/Time: See the Custom Settings section if you want to turn the date/time on-screen display.

1.On your computer, create a new text.txt file called settime.txt

2.Open the new blank Text document, input the local true time according to the following format: year, month, day, hour, min. sec. Here’s an example: December 31st, 2013 12:59AM, 59 seconds would be:

2013 12 31 23 59 59 (space needed between each number). Note this is military 24hr time.

3. Put file on the microSD card (not in any directory). Turn on the camera. It will automatically set the time and delete the txt file and start recording.
Changing Lenses

The sunglass lenses are held in place by two lips at the top of each lens. They are difficult to put back in so it’s best not to do this when you are in a hurry. To remove a lens, carefully bend the top frame up so the lenses come loose. Pull one side of the lens out and then the other. These lenses scratch easily. Also, the additional lenses have protective coatings that need to be peeled off.

SD Card Memory Storage

You must have a microSD card to record. There is no built-in memory.

A 16GB card will give you about 3 hrs. of video either 720 or 1080

A 32 GB card will give you about 6 hrs. of video either 720 or 1080

A) The memory card slot can support max 32GB TF card (not included). It can be class 4 or 10. Does not support a 64GB card.

B) When the microSD card is full or the card is not in the glasses, the blue & Bat LED light will blink rapidly.

C) It is recommended that you remove the microSD card in when the camera is being stored if you have files on the card.

File Sizes: 1 minute=110MB, max file size before camera automatically starts another file: 2.7GB = 25 minutes.

Approx. card times below:

4GB card=45min, 8GB card=1hr 30min, 16GB card=3hrs, 32GB=6hrs.

File Naming

The Eye-View1080HD automatically names the files sequentially. FILE0001.MOV, FILE0002.MOV, etc. Note that if you empty the microSD card, the file naming will start over.

Shooting Guidelines

When using this camera, move your head SLOWLY. Twice as slow as you would normally. You’ll be amazed how fast it looks in the camera – remember, if you move your eyes, the camera is not moving. So keep your eyes centered and move your head like an Owl. If you’re walking, glide while you walk because normal walking will look much jerkier in the camera than you would think. If walking use 720p for the wider angle. It will lessen the head movement.

The lenses are polarized, but the camera is not. So be aware that if your glasses are removing reflections/glare to your eyes with windows or with water, the camera probably will still see the reflections/glare.
If you want to confirm the camera is still recording, simply pull the camera away from your eyes about 1 inch and you will be able to see the blinking blue LED with your right eye.

If the glasses need to be pushed back onto your nose, don’t push in the center of the glasses. That will put a fingerprint right on the camera lens.
If you would like to take screenshots off your video, there are a couple great free programs that will do this - and they are great HD video players too:

GOM player: VLC media player:

These sunglasses can be subject to wind noise. We suggest keeping the factory clear tape over the small hold on the bottom side next to the SD Card. This will not affect the audio quality, but will drastically reduce wind noise.

These glasses do great in loud environments. Smart phones may cause interference. It will be heard as a burst of static (chirping) every few seconds. Only option is to move the phone away or turn it off. When in a quite environment for more than 10 seconds, the audio auto gain will go up increasing the background hiss.
Battery / Charging

A) If the camera fails to start or the blue light flashes quickly, usually the battery is drained and needs to be recharged. It is recommended that you charge the battery for about 8 hours for peak performance. Do not charge for more than 12 hours.

B) You can either charge the battery using a computer or charge it through AC adaptor provided (or optional USB power bank). Usually a full charge requires 3-4 hours.

C) When connected to computer, the LED lights on camera will turn red if it is fully drained, then turns yellow then and will turn green when battery is fully charged. For AC charger, IGNORE lights on camera, use charger lights instead.

D) If you haven’t used the camera for a long period of time, we recommend you recharge the battery first before use.

E) You have the ability to charge and record at the same time. It requires an optional 1000mAh USB battery pack and a right-angle USB cable to plug into the glasses. Wearing a neck restraint is a great way to run the cable down your neck to your belt. See USB power bank section.
Fogging (condensation): Fogging can happen when the glasses are suddenly in a humid environment, especially when coming out of an air conditioned car/building (lens will look white). You won’t know it’s fogging-up because you’re wearing the glasses. The best way to help the situation is to leave the glasses in the sun for about an hour until the fogging goes away. Blowing air on the glasses will help.


As with all polarized lenses, they scratch easily, so use the supplied soft microfiber cleaning cloth to clean the lenses.
PC/laptop connection
A)System Requirement

1.CPU must be at least 2.0Ghz Dual-core above

2.Oper. system: Win8/Win7/WinMe/WinXP/Win2000/Vista/Mac Os10.7

3.2.0 USB slot

4.CD-Rom/DVD Rom

5.Minimum 10GB free hard disk space

6.Minimum 1GB above memory
B) Connecting PC or Laptop

1.Insert the USB to the device and then connect to PC or Laptop through

USB slot. (It is generally faster to take card out and put in card reader)

2.The computer will recognize the newly insert disk and shall install the

driver if necessary.

3. After installation, a new window will pop up and you are able to see a folder named “DCIM” with the video files you have just recorded ready for downloading to local disk.

4. You can then copy or cut and save to your local hard drive.

Manual Controls:
This is the most exciting part of the Eye-View1080HD. You can have complete control of 10 camera settings. The settings are all stored in a text file called eyeofmine_Setting.txt on the microSD card. Note: if you format your card or delete everything on the card, the camera will AUTOMATICALLY create a new settings file on the card using the DEFAULT settings. So, if you make changes to the eyeofmine_Setting.txt file, we recommend making a copy of it to a subdirectory or on your computer so you don’t have to spend the time changing the file again should it get erased. Erasing the txt file causes no harm. Also a new camera has to write the file to the card the first time the camera is used. This is what it looks like:

The eyeofmine_Setting.txt file looks intimidating, but it really isn’t. Here’s a breakdown of what you are seeing:

This section is where you make the changes to the settings. DO NOT change anything in the file other than the numbers on the right

This section is simply a REPEAT of the above settings, explaining what they are. You do NOT change anything here.

This is extremely important! If you want to make any changes to the text file, you MUST change the ‘N’ to a ‘Y’. This is a flag for the camera to read the file. If you don’t, your changes will be lost and overwritten.
Note that ‘FORMAT’ has nothing to do with formatting the card. Just ignore that word.

In order to change the eyeofmine_Setting.txt file, you will need a computer. However, if you have an Android smart phone or tablet, you may be able to change the settings file using that. It’s extremely convenient at an event where you don’t have access to a laptop but you want to change the camera resolution, for example. We have tested a Razr and Samsung Galaxy. iPhones or iPads are more complicated. Some iPhones/iPads can read files from the external card but can’t transfer to the card. Please note we do not give any kind of support for this smartphones feature so you are on your own to see if it works with your phone. Here’s what you would need:
Smartphone USB External cable & iPhone 5 and iPad Ext. Card Reader.

USB microSD card reader. Note you cannot write to an external card.


Note: You CANNOT connect the Eye-View1080HD directly to your phone because the Eye-View will be expecting the phone to charge it and the phone will reject it (cannot have device-to-device connection). Also, make sure your card reader does not require power. Get a small inexpensive reader. The cards we sell for the Eye-View1080HD come with free USB readers.
If you have a fast enough phone and install a video player that plays MOV files, you can watch the Eye-View files on your phone! Works great on a Samsung Note ii with it’s big screen.

EXPLAINATION OF THE eyeofmine_Setting.txt FILE (default res. is 1080p)
EV:5 Exposure(EV)

1 ~ 12, def:6

EV stands for Exposure Value and it is the exposure of the camera. Generally you would never change this unless you are getting consistently overexposed or underexposed videos. If you are consistently shooting a subject that is surrounded by black areas (cockpit with small window) then you would want to turn the exposure down so it doesn’t overexposure your subject. If you are shooting a subject that is surrounded by very light areas such as snow, then you would want to increase the exposure because the automatic exposure will try and compensate for all the whiteness in the scene.

White Balance(AWB)

0 ~ 4, def:0, 0(auto), level 1~4

0 Auto 1.daylight 2.Cloudy 3.Tungsten 4.Incandescent

This setting generally would not need to be changed since the camera does a great job at autocorrecting the color balance. But if you find, say indoors your video is yellow with indoor lights, you may want to try one of these presets. From 1-4 the compensation goes towards blue (i.e. #4 adds the most amount of blue compensation to counteract the yellow hue).


1 ~ 200, def:100

This is one setting you may want to test with should you be in certain environments. For example, sometimes on cloudy days, the image can be lacking contrast and ‘pop’. INCREASE the contrast may bring the contrast and brighten the colors. On the other side, if you are shooting an evening concert with bright stage lighting with spotlights, you may want to LOWER the contrast so the bright areas don’t go completely white.


1 ~ 200, def:100

RAISING the number increases the brightness of the colors. LOWERING makes the colors more muted. Use this if you want to match to another camera colors that you are using. Note this has nothing to do with Hue.


1 ~ 200, def:100

This one is about personal preference. Some people like images razor sharp and crisp, other people like a more subtle, softer film-like appearance.

0 ~ 2, def:0, 0:High, 1:Middle, 2:Low

The purpose of this setting is to increase the video compression to make the file size smaller (see other section on file sizes). Surprisingly, we saw very little difference in visual quality when lowering the file size. So if you plan on shooting until the card is full, we suggest turning down the visual quality to LOW (turning up the compression).

0 ~ 2, def:1, 0:Max,1:Mid,2:Min,3:Off

Generally you want to keep this at 1 MID. For race cars / drag racing, concerts, turn down to 2 MIN. For nature walks, maybe turn up to 0 MAX. If you are having wind noise, turn down the volume. cont.


0 ~ 1, def:1, 0:60Hz 1:50Hz

This is a country specific setting for lighting. In USA, it would be the default 60Hz. In most other countries it would be the 50Hz setting. What happens if this setting is wrong is you will get very subtle horizontal bands that go from top to bottom on your videos. ONLY happens with fluorescent, LED or street lights because they have a quick refresh rate. Does not happen with standard indoor lighting. Although in the last few years more and more indoor lighting is becoming florescent lighting.
Time display:0

0 ~ 1, def:1, 0:Off, 1:On

1: time stamp , 0: without time stamp

This is for On-Screen display of date/time. See ‘operation’ section on how to set the time. The default is OFF.
VideoSwitch (resolution)

0 ~ 1, def:0, 0:1080P, 1:720P

This is the resolution setting you will spend a lot of your time changing if you find yourself in different environments. See the previous section ‘suggested uses for two resolutions’. Note: There is no visual indicator specifying 720 or 1080. Resolution can ONLY be changed with the eyeofmine_Setting.txt file.

0 ~ 1, def:3, 0:Off, 1:High, 2:Middle, 3:Low

You want this setting OFF OFF OFF! Who wants a beeping pair of sunglasses. It’s very loud and annoying. It’s purpose is to tell you when the camera has been started or stopped. But the LEDs work fine for that. If you find yourself in an environment where you can’t see the LEDs then you may want to try turning this feature on.

Rubber Piece to change vertical angle:

We have included a set of ELEVATED slip-on rubber pieces for the back of the glasses. The purpose of the elevated rubber piece is to help tilt the camera more towards the ground. This is helpful if your activity deals more with the lower half of you vision such as race driving, snowboarding, training video with your hands. If you are shooting an R/C helicopter/quadcopter, for example, you would not want to use these elevated rubber pieces because you want the camera to look more towards the sky. The factory rubber pieces simply slip off when pulled.

USB Power Bank

Using the optional USB Power Bank allows you to record for hours (up to 6 hrs with a 32GB card). Here’s the general setup:

Connect the retractable USB cable to the glasses. You can use the supplied ORings to keep the cable snug on the glasses. Extend the retractable USB cable so you can clip the USB Power Bank to your belt or similar. The USB power bank is an auto-on device. As soon as you connect a device it will start powering the device. You can also use any other USB power supply that is 1000mAh.
When connecting an external USB power supply, you can connect it while the camera is recording or you can simply connect it when the camera is off. You CANNOT use a computer to use this record/charge feature. The camera will sense it’s a computer and go into computer connect/charge mode.
We will try and notify our customers if there is a significant firmware update. Generally, that won’t be necessary. You can also check our website occasionally.
To install a new firmware ‘bin’ file: Put in an empty microSD card with just the firmware ‘bin’ file on the card in the root directory. Make sure you have a charged camera battery. Disconnect from the computer or external USB power. Simply press the rec button on the camera as normal for 2 seconds. You will see the blue LED turn on for ABOUT 1 MINUTE. That means it is loading the new firmware into the on-board permanent memory. When the update is complete, the blue LED will go away.
The camera AUTOMATICALLY deletes the bin file. So you can start shooting. Please note that it will go back to the default settings with a new firmware.

You may have to install the free Quicktime Player available on Apple’s website in order to install the proper MOV codec. Most modern PC /Macs can play MOV files (h.264 codec)
