    Jay---I totally agree. The I Kam Extreme is a great tool for the price. I'm sure there are better ones out there--just a lot more expensive.

    I bought my son the I kam sunglasses, used for upland hunt and the quality was good. You need to keep your head up as some of the video gets cut off if you are looking down to your dog or watching you step. We had on flush that was interesting and I could go back and watch it in reply. I missed and waffled the pheasent, thought it was coming down so I held off on my second shot. the dam thing got wings again and flow off. All on video. I will post the vid if possible. ................

    Well that did not work. PM with email and I will send it to you.

    Overall I've like mine. As Jay mentioned, you have to adjust if you want to see your dog in certain spots. I used mine while shooting hogs out of a helo and got good footage but it's all up in one corner of the screen because of how I was sighting on my rifle. Next time I'll do better. And to watch marks they aren't too great because all you see is a black speck on the horizon. Good for drills and close in stuff though.

    Thanks guys,

    I ended up buy some of the iKam Xtreme glasses from Roger's. They ran a sell on them and for the price I couldn't pass. I have used them a couple of times and for the $ have been pleased. I knew what I was getting when I bought them...I wasn't expecting Hollywood quality HD video for $90.

    I had the same problem--It is usually one of 2 things.
    1---If you have an additional memory card installed, you need to copy the small file that is on the root directory of the glasses to the memory card.
    2---Make sure you have not exceeded the memory of the glasses. It is a little over 3 gig. It gets used up fast.

    The other possibility is you erased that file that is supposed to stay on it.

    You can re-create that file yourself. Hook sunglasses up to you computer, open I-Kam program, click on "Set I-Kam Device Time". It will then tell you to disconnect the glasses, take a short video with them and check the time and date. That should do it.
