EE launches wearable 4G camera


EE, one of the UK’s newest and fastest mobile networks, is always dabbling into a variety of tech hardware such as smartphones, tablets and even an action camera that competes directly with the GoPro. Now, the company has released the Capture Cam or “the world’s first 4G wearable streaming camera” if you want to get technical.

The square camera measures at 55mm on all sides, not counting the clip that you can use to attach it to your clothes or other equipment. Its 8MP sensor is capable of capturing videos and photos at 1080p as well as streaming at 720p. The device comes with 4GB of on-board storage with microSD card support for up to 64GB of additional storage. Shooting 1080p video means you will definitely have to get an extra card or be ready to constantly import videos from the camera to have some space free. Those who choose to stream instead will have to do so with EE’s Skeegle app which may well deter some people from it.

The camera has an Android and iOS companion app with the same name that allows users to control it remotely, check out their files and manage their data usage. As you have probably understood already, the camera is equipped with a 4G Sim card where all the streaming is happening for so you can buy new data plans on the go. I hope that EE does not require a payment plan for this camera, especially as it seems like the kind of thing you would use in special occasions only.
