Even though many of us are using smartphones with incredible cameras, able of capturing amazing photos and up to 4K videos, sometimes this is not the perfect tool for the job. This is where GoPro and similar action-cameras come in, able of recording that perfect moment.
In case you already lost those priceless moments in those few seconds until you take the camera out of your bag, continue reading this article as we are about to tell you of a new kind of camera.
TimeCap is a new kind of a wearable camera that is currently going through its Indiegogo crowdfunding phase. However, this camera already surpassed its crowdfunding goal by more than 500 percent, which means that we are only a couple of months away from the final product. Let’s see how this camera works, as well as what is unique about TimeCap.
TimeCap is a small and discreet camera that can be attached to any piece of clothing, which means that you can easily record all kinds of events. All you have to do is to press on the power button for three seconds to power on the device, and you are ready to record. There is also a small LED light, indicating that you can record, or if the camera is powered off.
Perhaps the bestselling aspect of this camera is that you can easily set it up, wear and use it wherever you go, while not thinking about storage limitations. The camera can be paired with your iOS or Android device using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, even though it can also work on its own since it packs 32GB of internal storage.
This is enough for up to 25,000 photos or 4 hours of HD video. Even though it comes with a 1,400 mAh battery, which should be more than enough for a whole day or recording, you should stick to Bluetooth 4.0 since it’s highly energy-efficient.
As you can see by now, this is a very simple product, even though it’s quite complex on the inside. It is powered by a 5-megapixel CMOS camera, and can record videos in H.264 5.1 format. Its functionally is also extended to its app, where you can change all kinds of settings (like video/audio format, compression rate, and resolution of the video), but you can also use it to directly upload your newly recorded video to a number of cloud storage solutions.
If you jump in and participate in TimeCap’s Indiegogo campaign, you will receive one camera, one clip mount, as well as 20GB of free lifetime cloud storage. Early adopters were able to secure their units for only $99, which seems like an amazing deal. The current price goes from $139, which still sounds tempting considering that the retail price will be $249.
