Lifelogger is a wearable camera able to stream live video via Wi-Fi.

Update on June 25, 2014: Since our initial post, Lifelogger has made some improvements to the design. Now, instead of 720p, the wearable camera can handle Full HD 1080p capture. The company also found ways to make the device smaller and lighter, and extend the battery life.

“While we were developing in 2013-14 there were some new and smaller chipsets announced (like Ambarella A7LW – specifically made for wearable cams) so we are currently considering redoing the PCB layout and using the Ambarella A7LW which will save space and increase battery life,” the company wrote on its Kickstarter page.

As the interest for amateur videography continues to grow, so does the interest in breaking out of the traditional role behind the camera and capturing footage from the point-of-view of the person recording it. Over the past few years, we’ve seen various types of wearable cameras such as the MeCam, Narrative Clip, and Autographer, and now the Lifelogger Camera can be added to that list. 

Lifelogger is a fully hands-free, 5-megapixel camera capable of recording up to eight hours of 1080p high-definition video and streaming it in real-time via Wi-Fi. Lifelogger offers users a unique take on capturing life events by incorporating video, voice, text, and facial recognition into the camera, to fully immerse the user and others into a POV experience.

The camera is attached to a small mount that wraps around your neck and rests snugly behind your ears – just imagine putting on a sleek pair of sunglasses backward. The lightweight, compact camera won’t impede any of your natural movement, and you’ll be able to control it using a downloaded app for your Android or iOS mobile devices.

The LifeLogger app allows users to operate the camera, manage existing videos, manually or automatically upload new videos, and sign in to a personal cloud account that wirelessly stores your content. You’ll also be able to check the camera’s battery and memory status, and turn live streaming on or off.

Other features of the Lifelogger Camera include:

  • 90-degree fixed lens
  • Photo burst mode, up to 10 per second
  • Time-lapse recording, up to one photo every 60 seconds
  • Photo snapshot mode
  • 32GB SD card of storage

Lifelogger was created more than a year ago by a Florida-based startup company of the same name. The company launched a Kickstarter campaign May 13 with a goal of $150,000 and a cutoff date of July 1. According to Lifelogger, those who make pledges on Kickstarter now will receive up to three months of 25GB cloud storage for free; the company has not stated how much cloud storage will cost moving forward. If successfully funded, Lifelogger estimates the camera will be available by the end of 2014.

Sony A7 III mirorless camera is $300 off for Black Friday
Sony Alpha a7 III Mirrorless front view.

There are a lot of great Best Buy Black Friday deals going on right now, and whether you're looking for TVs, laptops, or even headphones, there's a little something for everybody. Of course, many folks may not realize that Best Buy has some fantastic deals on high-end photography gear, such as this Sony Alpha a7 III mirrorless camera. While it usually goes for a whopping $2,200, Best Buy had brought it down to $1,900, and while that relatively doesn't seem like much, you could always spend the $300 savings on a new lens.

Why you should buy the Sony Alpha a7 III
The Sony Alpha a7 III is a camera with so much tech that it might as well be three different cameras. It has excellent dynamic range, low-light performance, and high-speed performance, and the full-frame sensors make the images look absolutely stunning. Interestingly, the a7 III manages to do an excellent job at both low and high ISOs, the latter of which can go as high as 51,200 non-boosted, which, granted, adds a lot of noise, but noise reduction helps with that. As for the video, well, sadly, it's not as impressive, at least in terms of advancements in image quality, and while it can do 8-bit 4K at 30 frames per second, it's no longer ahead of the pack in that regard, like the Panasonic Lumix GH5 is with its 400Mbps 10-bit codec and 60-fps 4K.
