Eyetop glasses are unique because only one eye is presented with a video image, and even that is slightly off to the side, such that you can look up and focus your attention on the airplane with both eyes, and then sneak a peek at the video by glancing to the right. Notice I say "sneak a peek". You would not want to remotely pilot a plane with the Eyetops for any extended period of time, because glancing to the side is surprisingly tiring. Also, the flicker I mention in my review could get tiring after a while.
So which is best? It depends on what you want to accomplish. I do a lot of low level aerial video, and I'm going to be getting more into aerial photography. In each of these cases I need to see where the plane is at the same time that I see what is being captured on video (or by the digital camera). The Eyetops win hands down for this purpose. Other users can chime in and say why they find the Sony, Canon, et. al. more useful for their purpose.
