EE has just launched the 4GEE Action Cam, the world’s first 4G action camera that makes it easy for anyone to live stream videos.
The 4GEE Action Cam allows anyone to live stream HD video content to smartphones and tablets whilst on the go. Each video – whether it’s a hiking trip or your child’s birthday – will be streamed through EE’s 4G network or Skeegle, a personal live streaming service.
Users can drop the camera’s resolution to get a higher frame rate. This allows the camera to capture smoother footage of cycling or other action sports. The camera is also capable of taking 13MP stills and it has room for up to 64GB of external memory. Battery also lasts a decent three hours.
Daredevil James Kingston can be seen demonstrating the camera in the video below.
Packaged with the 4GEE Action Cam is a lightweight case that protects it from bumps and a waterproof case that offers up to 60 metres of underwater protection.
An accompanying viewfinder watch allows you view what your camera sees and start or stop recording with a single press of a button. This means you needn’t actually touch the camera when you’re filming. There’s also an Action Cam app – available on iOS and Android – that gives the user control over camera settings, videos, data and top ups.

Olaf Swantee, EE CEO, said: “Over the past two years we’ve witnessed how 4G connectivity has changed behaviour and instilled a desire to connect and communicate instantaneously when out and about.
“We’ve introduced our ‘connected strategy’ as we understand our customers not only want superfast coverage, they want products that give them the very best experiences, coupled with the most innovative and exciting ways in which to share them. The 4GEE Action Cam is a great example of this, a product that keeps us connected in a new way, even in the most extreme conditions, sharing those epic moments as they unfold. It’s the first of several highly innovative products from our devices portfolio to be unveiled this year for work and for play, offering a video experience like no other currently available on the market.”
