When filming a video, people usually hold cameras in their hands. Apart from that, there are a lot of different devices, like monopods or selfie sticks, allowing you to capture the footage from the best angles. However, you still have to use your hands to control the accessory. So, if your hands are often busy but you want to keep recording video, wearable cameras would be a great option for you. And for this review, we picked one of them – Looxcie LX2.
This camera is a convenient solution for daily use. In terms of its application, Looxcie LX2 is very similar mobile phone headsets – it’s a totally hand-free camera which is attached comfortably onto the user’s ear. The design consists of two things: a rotating in-ear “headphone” and a bendable loop that goes around the ear. As result, the camera can be always with you no matter where you go and what you do.
Looxcie LX2 has enough space for about 5 hours of footage. What’s more, the camera is oriented towards young people who like to share videos with their friends in social networks. That’s why the camera can create short, 30-second video. You just need to press the button on the earpiece and the camera will turn 30 last seconds of the footage into a clip that can be uploaded on YouTube or shared on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and so on. Plus, Looxcie LX2 can live stream everything to your family and friends. Just download the accompanying app and you’ll be able to watch the streams as if you are there.
So, Looxcie LX2 is a quite practical solution for a camera. Of course, it doesn’t have the quality of GoPro cameras and it’s very pricey ($111) but it’s a helpful device for sharing content and live streaming on the go.
