HD Sunglasses

Hey folks. Has there been any kind of a discussion comparing glasses that you can film with. I'm thinking about getting a pair to film street scenes (i've been working on a documentary about folks homeless for 6 years). I recently saw a video where someone was wearing a pair of glasses like that walking down the street (i emailed the filmmaker and that's how I found out) and it was so much more authentic then when you walk down the street holding a camera that effects everybody as they become aware of it. And obviously there's a whole discussion about the morals/ethics of it.

But anyway, has anybody used any of these kinds of cameras? It needs to be 1920 to cut with the rest of the film (shot of GH2-GH4, but its ok that the quality will be totally different.

Btw, here's the link to the aforementioned video. Shot in San Francisco's Tenderloin District. A heavily impoverished area but one with an often understated and misunderstood vibrancy that goes deeper that one might now upon first examination. I work in the "TL" fairly often on my documentary "The Invisible Class" (www.invisibleclass.com) and while I've had permission to shoot many places the POV look and unflinching naturalness of this walk through with video sunglasses is arresting. it's what I think we'd like to emulate.
