stored on a built-in 8 GB flash memory. Pivothead eyewear can give
you true point-of-view life recording.

4-element, Largan glass lens with a 75° field-of-view. There are four focusing
options for video: Continuous Focus, Auto Focus (4" to infinity), Fixed Focus
(2.8' to infinity), and Macro Focus (4" to 28"). You can also choose between
Auto Focus and Macro Focus for shooting still images.

Pivothead cameras can shoot still images in 8MP, 5MP, and 3MP image sizes. You
can also shoot multiple image bursts of 16, 10, 5, or 3 shots. Exposure can be
set to Bright, Dim, or Automatic, with selectable ISO at Auto, 200, 800, or
1600. You can shoot color or black & white still images.

options: 1 shot every 1 second, 1 shot every 30 seconds, 4 shots every 8
seconds, 4 shots every 30 seconds, 10 shots every 30 seconds, or 5 shots every
