First Reasonably Priced Covert Video Sunglasses
There was a major price breakthrough got covert video sunglasses in the mid 1990's and people could actually start to afford them other that the CIA and the KGB. These glasses sold for about $2995.00 when they first came out and believe it or not, that was really something as prior to that, stuff like this was $9,000 to $15,000 if you could find anyone who could make them. Here is the original ad copy:

The Absolute Ultimate In Covert Video Surveillance

Here is the same covert video sunglasses that were used in the movie Mission Impossible. The full color super micro mini camera is built into the noise frame portion of the sunglasses and shoots through a tiny pinhole. This top quality camera is completely self contained built into the nose frame and features high full color resolution and low light ability. A cord that looks like a sunglass safety cord carries the video signal to a unique and small black box that can be easily concealed in one's back or pocket. By using our featured wireless video link, you'll have a completely self contained full color video recording system. Come with self contained rechargeable ni-Cd batteries built into the small black box.

In every way, these sunglasses look like ordinary high quality sunglasses. Only you will know that you are taking high quality color video and audio footage of whatever you see. Recently, the KJB purchased a large lot of these same glasses for over $9,000 each.
