The Liquidimage EGO LS 800 is basically a GoPro with 4G LTE capability. It lets you stream a live feed to your computer or smartdevice , or send the recorded files. It can also send a continuous photo stream.
All you have to do is put it in it’s ‘4G sled’, and voila. There will be both a Verizon version and an unlocked GSM version.
While it does have a few interesting features that the GoPro lacks, it can only record up to 1080p.
For example it can remain in standby mode for over 24hrs before being turned on with a remote control.
The camera will be $399 and will start shipping in the first quarter of 2015.
Also, not that I dislike the GoPro, but this camera just looks a lot better.
