Looxcie HD: Product Spotlight

Hands-Free POV Video Master

The Looxcie HD, introduced a few months ago, is rapidly becoming the go-to camcorder for point-of-view sports and action videos. Here's why—and some mighty cool videos showing it in use.


The Looxcie HD is finally here! A bluetooth- and Wi-Fi-enabled video streaming device, it's the first Looxcie to record 1080p HD video at 30fps while simultaneously streaming videos to the Internet at 420p. The secret sauce is Looxcie's wireless connectivity to iOS and Android-based smart phones and tablets via a free companion app.

Looxcie HD Key Features:

  • Action Camcorder
  • Live Video Streaming Direct to Facebook (at 420p)
  • 1080p Video Recording
  • Simultaneous streaming & recording
  • Built-In Wi-Fi
  • Instant video viewing on iOS or Android
  • Water-resistant design
  • MicroSD storage
  • Bluetooth

Water resistant and at f/2.8 usable in low light, the Looxcie HD maintains focus from a few inches to infinity with its fixed-focus lens.  Looxcie is positioning this camera as a great companion for high-quality, active outdoor point-of-view videos; the company has rolled out several mounts so you can use it mounted to your car's hood or windshield, clamped to a bike or motorcycle's handlebars, sitting atop a baseball cap or helmet, and more.

A few more facts, then let's go right to the fun stuff. Battery life is about two hours, so if you're going out for a long day of shooting and streaming you may want to invest in extra batteries. YOu can also add memory so you can record more video, since the Looxcie HD uses MicroSD storage. The new companion Looxcie Mobile App  turns your smart phone or tablet into a viewfinder and lets you control the camera.
