The Looxcie HD Explore Video Cam with Live Streaming is a compact, hands-free camcorder with built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. It supports Full HD 1920 x 1080p recording at 30 fps and 1280 x 720p HD recording at 60 fps for high-speed action sports. The HD Explore also supports live Wi-Fi streaming in either 480p or 320p resolution. The camera records video to the web-friendly MP4 format and a Looxcie Companion app is available for Android devices with Android 2.3.3 or higher, and iOS devices with iOS 5.0 or higher.

The HD Explore is equipped with a low-light CMOS sensor with a 75° field-of-view. It also has a weather-resistant enclosure and a replaceable 1200 mAh lithium polymer rechargeable battery. The camera features a microSDHC card slot that supports up to 32GB cards. There's also a micro-USB port for charging and data-transfer to your computer. A Looxcie Desktop application is also available for free download for both Mac and Windows operating systems.

The built-in Wi-Fi and free Looxcie mobile app turn the Looxcie HD video camera into a personal streaming device, which means you can share what's happening while it happens. And, because it connects wirelessly to your smartphone or tablet, you can use it anytime, anywhere. You can also create an "instant replay" of what just happened with the unique Instant Clip button or share a live video stream with Facebook friends. Plus, for added flexibility right out of the box, the Looxcie HD comes with a ball cap mount, a helmet mount and a bike mount.

    Comments about Looxcie HD Explore Video Cam with Live Streaming:

    Great videos. Streaming was a little hard to figure out how to use it at first but once you do, you won't be disappointed. This new Looxcie comes with a new Looxcie mobile app that combines Looxcie's 3 previous apps. Another reviewer remarked that he could not use LooxcieLive but this is because he was trying to use the old apps. Glad I got this camera!

        The cam is a lot bigger than the other looxcies.
        Also the App is not as good as the "old" one.
        You can not use Looxcie live etc with this cam....
        I regret the buy
