You’ve seen those TV shows following the police or bailiffs doing their jobs. You might’ve also seen the little body cameras they wear too. They protect both the person wearing it and the public, but now you can get one yourself from EE. This is even more advanced too, because the 4GEE Capture Cam is connected the EE network via 4G, letting your stream your daily life to the world.
Why you would do this is another matter, but if you want to perhaps use the 8 megapixel camera and show live footage of your trip to PoundStretcher.
That said, there is actually a little more to it. You can store pictures and video on the internal 4GB memory and there’s a microSD card slot for another 64GB can be used for viewing later. Ideal if you want to capture a bike ride, car drive, flight or even a swim via the waterproof case. Accessories include a mounting adaptor, lanyard, chest / helmet / bike / head and car suction mount so that you can rig it to almost everything.
More cameras and connected devices are expected to be just around the corner as EE continues with their connected gadgets strategy. As for pricing, the 4GEE Capture Cam is available on pay as you go and a pay monthly plans. That means you can buy it for £10 per month with 1GB of data and £15 per month with 2GB of data. If you’re a new EE customer they’ll charge you an upfront cost of £9.99, but it’s free if you’re already with the network. This is for a 24 month plan. Existing EE customers can also add the 4GEE Capture Cam on a Shared Plan for £10 per month.
If you fancy Pay As You Go, you’ll be paying £129.99 with 2GB of data allowance pre-loaded, or £149.99 with 6GB of data pre-loaded. For those of you who want to stream absolutely everything, you can pay £199.99 for 24GB of pre-loaded data.
You can use services like Skeegle to broadcast private live-streams to friends and family. It’s optimised for 4G and baked right into the 4GEE Capture Cam. You can also setup live streams for future events and send push notifications out.

24th November 2015 – EE, the UK’s most advanced digital communications company, today announced the availability of the 4GEE Capture Cam, the latest device in EE’s connected range. The lightweight, wearable 4GEE Capture Cam allows users to broadcast live over the UK’s biggest and fastest 4G mobile network and is available immediately for consumers and small business customers to purchase nationwide.
The 4GEE Capture Cam is a lightweight, wearable camera that allows users to stream high definition video of their day-to-day lives.

It also includes 4GB of internal memory, which expands to up to 64GB with an external memory card, so users can capture hours of video and hundreds of images
The new camera is the latest addition to EE’s connected camera range, following the launch of the 4GEE Action Cam earlier in the year. EE plans to build on this range of cameras for businesses in the coming year, with more details to come in 2016.

The 4GEE Capture Cam’s companion app allows users to control all camera functions direct from their smartphone. The smartphone’s screen acts as the camera’s viewfinder, making it easy to set up great shots and capture videos on-the-go.
The companion app features a range of camera controls, including the ability to adjust camera settings, manage image and video files, buy additional data bundles, review data usage and download and share videos. The app is available for both iOS and Android smartphones.
