Shooting Video

Shooting Video in Glass is interesting in part because the default expectation is that each clip will be 10 seconds. I imagine this is partly to preserve power and memory, and perhaps also to assuage fears that people will sneak Glass into the movie theater or something. One can extend the recording time beyond the initial 10 seconds with a strategically timed tap.

My experience with video thus far has been that, as for images, the video itself is by default very high contrast and somewhat surreal looking because of the way the focus seems to be relatively undifferentiated on the screen. Extracting video masterpieces from the device is a bit of a challenge in that you need to download all your media elements in a special process in order to get to the files outside of the google plus environment.

As I’ve said to friends before, Glass could be seen in some ways as an elaborate justification for using google plus, which is something I really haven’t dug into thus far. Which is probably good, since I don’t necessarily want all my experiments being published out to a huge number of users.
