We’re always looking for a new perspective in catching the action when videoing a Babes with Bullets™ camp. One of the perspectives we’ve captured is by using a head cam when the Babe runs a stage.
In walks the eye cam from Sportsman Eyewear, kind of new in the industry, but looks to answer “our” needs. It happens to be a pair of sunglasses with a built-in camera. As you can see with this video, it works the same as a head cam but easier to attach to your head, more natural. Deb Ferns is wearing the glasses in the video.
The glasses come in a couple of different colors, three different colored lenses, uses an SD card, films in HD, drag and drop files onto your computer for easy editing … way simple. It takes video/audio as well as stills with just a press of a button. These glasses have put a smile on both Deb’s and my faces.

Marilyn Vogel has been an Arizonian since 1961. She spent the first 30 years of her adult life in the banking and accounting business. In 2002 she was introduced to USPSA action pistol shooting by Deb Ferns (Babes with Bullets) and became a big fan of the new sport. She also found that she loved being behind a camera, starting out with still photos back in the ’70s and then graduating to video in the ’90s. When video editing became available on the Apple computer in 2003, she was hooked and haven’t lost any of the passion since. Since 2005, she has had the privilege of partnering and being mentored by ProVideos 4U, a Tucson-based full video production company owned and operated by her brother, Bob Martin. She adds, “I’ve enjoyed traveling with the Babes with Bullets camps, filming and editing the wonderful stories that come from these camps.” You can see Marilyn’s work at http://babeswithbullets.com/
