This is a review from a LEO for other LEO's. I'm not assigned to the streets anymore but I do still work OT on holidays and STEP DWI's.

I know bodycams in law enforcement have vocal detractors, but this is a product review. There are plenty of hotly debated threads on forums elsewhere.

The model I have used is the Recon Jet Black, which comes with clear, yellow, and smoke interchangeable lenses.

Pivotheads are, by far, the best bodycam available for LEO's if you can adapt to its important limitations (discussed later). I bought them because they were, and are as of this writing are, the only glasses capable of 1080 or 720 at 60fps. I've tried all settings, and I just leave them on 1080 now.

THE RAVE- These glasses make POV videos that make prosecutors' mouths drop open. I cant say what juror's reactions are yet because Ive yet to have a case with PH video make it beyond a quick plea. Have problems getting a jury visualize what HGN is, or what distinct and sustained looks like? Ever testified about other aspects of SFSTs that occurred but you cant see on the car video? Ever took an hour or more articulating factors that lead you to your decision in a use-of-force report or IAD investigation? Ever wasted hours of everyone's time on the stand with an attorney trying to convince a jury that you didn't or couldn't see what you did?

Dear friend, as The Raven quoth, "Nevermore."

It is hard for me to contain the superlatives of how well these glasses work.

Glasses lasted for about 6 months before they stopped working. They were never dropped or bounced around, only used while walking or standing. Seemed to be some bad internal connection as at first they continued to work but only when the glasses were closed (and could not be worn). Soon after they stopped even working under these conditions. I contacted Pivothead support twice but no response besides the auto-response saying they had placed a support ticket. Never heard from them again so i guess i wasted my money.

I would've given this more stars, but for $300 I expect something to work very well and consistently. When I got these out of the box and used them for the first few times, it worked beautifully. It comes with software so you can adjust all kinds of settings (and there are a lot of options!).

I have found these glasses to be especially useful for doing youtube tutorials where I need to show people what I'm doing with my hands. For example, I recently did a knitting tutorial. It's also great because it's hands free. I originally got these so I could record conversations with Mormon and Jehovah's Witness missionaries and possibly for recording public pranks. I haven't had the opportunity to do that yet, but I have worn them out in public a few times, and people don't seem to notice that there's a camera in there, which is good.

They suck for biking, though, for a couple of reasons. First, because if you road bike like I do, it just records the front of your tire and the road. When you're bent over like that, your head is down, and your eyes are up, but the camera doesn't follow your eyes; it only follows your head. Another reason it sucks for bike riding is that any wind at all creates a lot of noise in the microphone. I've heard that could be fixed by gluing a small piece of foam over the microphone, but I haven't tried it. Don't put glue in the microphone hole! Just put it around it.

The first problem I had with these glasses is that I thought I was recording video, but it stopped without me knowing it. The reason it stopped was because my memory was full. That was quite a shock because I had deleted all my video clips. I couldn't understand why it was still showing full. After some searching around, I discovered what the problem was.

Color: Recon Black Jet Verified Purchase

I purchased these after a short stint as a Google Glass Explorer. I found the ability to record video from my head to be very useful and wanted a less expensive way to do it after returning my Glass to Google. These fit the bill, and you can buy five of them for what one pair of Google Glass costs.

Video quality is good and the autofocus is responsive. Pivothead doesn't provide much feedback, so I often find myself taking them off to ensure that the recording is actually happening (there's an LED indicator inside the right temple). There is no viewfinder but with the camera situated just above the nose whatever is being looked at will be recorded.

Battery charging can also be confusing. I've found the glasses don't charge when plugged into my computer. I have to use a separate AC adapter (not included) to get mine charging.

Pivothead provides a software download to resolve another annoyance: configuration. You can try to configure them using the three blinking lights inside the right temple, but it's much easier to just download their free utility and configure things that way when the glasses are plugged in.

Overall these are a great way to record decent quality video from your head. I would like future versions to provide a little more feedback as to when they are recording, but otherwise I'm quite pleased with them.
