Step 3: Prep the Camera...

First trim back the molding on the camera to reveal the wiring. My camera had 4 wires. 1 for Video, Audio, Power and ground. That came together at 3 connectors. (The ground was connected to the ground wires on the video, audio and power line). I tehn cut the wireing about 4 inches from the camera leaving enough wiring on the other end.
So cool
Do you have video of some footage or a couple pics or something?
<p>does the tint of the glasses affect the video footage?</p>
I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would love a pair of those <a href="http://mcleodoptometryclinic.ca" rel="nofollow">glasses ottawa</a>. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for posting this! I found a <a href="http://mcleodoptometryclinic.ca" rel="nofollow">glasses store in Ottawa</a> that sold these but they were too expensive. Glad a found this page. Thanks again.
So cool! I found these sunglasses: http://www.walgreens.com/store/c/solar-shield-fits-over-plastic-sunglasses/ID=prod6015959-product?V=G&amp;ext=frgl_Google_Personal_Care . Do you think it is fine if they are not mirrored on the other side?
And do you know it it is possible to connect it to a Flip camcorder?
AAAAAAHHHH!!! I just bought the mini pinhole camera when I found out my Canon camera only has an output. I'm trying to find a way now to hook it up to my PSP, which has an input for a camera.
would the SONY HANDYCAM DCR-DVD308 camera work? I found one pretty well priced. I just cant tell if it has A/V.
every handycam has a/v out i think that the oldest models of the HDD ones didnt have but the dcr-dvd308 HAS A A/V OUT (i know becouse my father has it.. i have Sony HandyCam DCR-DVD109 and it has A/V out too ...
a/v out won't record to the camera though, it will let you connect to a tv and watch previously recorded video. am i correct?
Yeah you're correct.<br>P.S Sorry that I haven't responded since 2 years or so, but I have been busy dealing with those million problems life has to offer (school, got sick and went to hospital stuff like that) and forgot about the spirit of DYI, but I'm here again.<br>
I think my Sony DCR-DVD109 has only a/v output wright? :S
Any camcorder that has audio/video inputs via RCA connectors will work.
hay, Can I used a (computer-camera) pleas........ ¢;☼↕$∙σ
just on bridel568's comment you could desgise the cord as one of those things you attach to your glasses so that they can hang around your neck.
These are awsome! NOw just to make a small enought TV to put in the toe of my shoe...<br />
can we just use and extension cord for av (one side female other side male)?<br /> and what would i need to record with? my camcorder isnt capable of the mode. for cheap?
Is there any way to get a camera like that without buying it on ebay? I'm 13 and I'm limited to what my parents will(and won't) let me do.
Yes, there is you can go in some "spy" websites (write in google telephone silencer) and you will see some spy sites the order is mailed to you or ppl delivers it to your door you just pay him and sign a document i'm 13 too (i buyed my Sony HandyCam DCR-DVD109 with my mom from a tech magazine :D )
You're thirteen, and that's why you wrote buyed. It's bought. :P I'm joking, I'm thirteen as well.
aren't we all?
no, we are not all 13 maybe a vast majority of you are but, I am 14 big difference
I had no idea there were so many younglings. I'm 22. <br />
12<br />
I wrote buyed, because english is my 2'nd language :)
11 but have a very high iq
With the ability to use capitals and full stops.
on your door bell dog alarm there where those audio video sender reciever could you use those in stead of carrying the camcorder (are they battery powered)
wait, so the red wire is for power? how do you connect it to a 9v battery clip? doesn't the power need 2 wires?
The way some composite cables can work is by having the shield - and the middle is +
I'm not sure about the 9v battery, is that for the camcorder or do you connect it to the power cable?
The 9v battery is to power the spy camera, as it needs a source of power to produce an image. The camcorder itself should already have it's own power supply.
I see, I'm getting my mini camera in a week. Can't wait, I'm mounting it in a pair of sunglasses so I don't have to take a picture every second second.
thanks, that explains it
2 wires, positive and negative
or you could disguise the wire as a ear bud headphone because what would happen if someone asked "why do you have a random wire connected to your glasses? and why does it run down your shirt?" with the headphone idea the wire wont be so suspicious and you would be less likely to get caught.
My reply: "Just my mp3 player, I modded out the earbuds so they're connected to my sunglasses."
Ok, hopefully im not the only one with this problem. I like to go to a lot of concerts, but indoor venues are pretty against the "no video policy". I will still do this since in my area, people wear sunglasses outside. But is there a smaller camcorder you would reccomend? They dont check pockets but that thing is kinda chunkey and the slimmer it is the better. Also, since your recording to a dv/dvd, is it possible to start/stop it to make seperate tracks or am i better off slicing it into tracks?
meant to say inside.. everyone wears sunglasses outside
You could mount it in a hat, a tie or a general piece of clothing, or just hold it in the general direction of the stage.
I don't know about specific models of camcorders but if you go down to you JB HiFi or similar and ask around, just make sure it's got video/audio input. To stop and start you would just have to press the record button.
I want to make a paintball gun-cam out of one of these, but keeping a big camcorder safe will be hard
use a smaller, cheaper one or just find a video/audio inputtable memory device. then epoxy putty the crap out of it except the USB connector port. epoxy putty'll make just about anything indestructible.
