EE's tiny 4G lifelogging Capture Cam goes on sale

Matt Brian, @m4tt

Not content with offering a variety of smartphones and tablets, EE has expanded its accessory portfolio with a range of broadband devices and action cameras. We've already met the Action Cam -- basically a GoPro with 4G streaming capability -- but the carrier also recently debuted another, smaller, connected camera: the Capture Cam. It's taken almost a month, but today the pocket-sized snapper has finally gone on sale, just in time for Christmas.

Unlike its rugged sibling, the Capture Cam is best used for recording and livestreaming everyday moments. But that also means it won't weigh as heavy on your bank balance. To make it more affordable (in the short term at least), EE is offering the new camera for £10 per month with 1GB of data or for £15 per month for 2GB. If you're new to EE, you'll need to pay a one-off payment of £10, but the contract will lock you in for two years whether you're an existing customer or not.

If you'd rather pay upfront, the Capture Cam will set you back £130 with 2GB of data, £150 for 6GB or £200 for 24GB. It can also be added to Shared Plan for £10 a month, which means you'll be able to spread your data usage across all your EE devices.

The Capture Cam comes with a clip so you can attach it to your clothing and its 8-megapixel sensor will shoot stills and video up to 1080p at 30 frames per second. When streaming, the camera will knock its resolution down to 720p at 30 frames per second. Broadcasts are handled by the company's own Skeegle app, but there is also a dedicated Capture Cam app that lets you control the device remotely, manage and download files and check your data usage.
