The mini selfie camera: portable, connected, pointable and all-terrain
Selfie sticks completely flooded the phone accessory market since selfies were made popular. We can easily think that nothing's better to take a picture of everyone, from a rather flattering angle. And yet, there is so much better: the Podo Camera, a mini camera that can stick to any surface: wood, metal, plastic... even though it has a preference for smooth and solid areas.
Well, not only does it free your hands, but it addition the perspective choices completely widened: view from above, bottom, side, de 3/4, you only need a small surface (the Podo camera isn't too demanding) where you can put it and original pictures are yours!
Because common selfie pictures, close-up on your face, always the same angle (you know which one!), limited by your arm's length, and sometimes with a small part of your selfie stick showing…
We have to say it: it's out of date!
Isn't it better to make a bunch of different poses, and to have more control on your pictures?
This modern jewel can give you all of that with its rotating hinge that allows you to choose any angle. The app with which the Podo Camera V2 is synched lets you watch the live preview, as if you were behind the camera lenses!
If you like to go out, the Podo Camera was made for you! It is easily placed with a quick press against the desired surface securely grips.
Grips, because actually, it is not filled with an adhesive or a sticky that wears out, but equipped with an exclusive technology that imitates gecko's feet! It can't be unusable, a simple water cleaning and your Podo will get its powers back.
Thus, take your camera with you, on your baseball hat or on your chest like a Gopro, but without the special mount, on the back of your car, on your purse, or simply in your pocket! Don't worry, it won't get stuck in your pocket. A little spin and the adhesive part will remain hidden. Take advantage of the potential of this compact, lightweight and absolutely modern camera.
The Podo Camera's application perfectly completes it. In fact, it is through this mobile app that your control your camera by Bluetooth connexion. 6 different modes change all the picture experience, you'll find its convenience fun.
#1 Photo mode: It's not rocket science, it indeed allows you to take pictures, press the app's button when you're ready. You can still enhance your pictures with filters you can find in the app.
#2 Video mode: Enjoy a 720p video at 30ips, with your phone's sound quality, that will serve as a wireless mic.
#3 Lapse mode: The time-lapse mode let you record a video made from a series of pictures taken at a regular interval (that you set!). Whether it's the sunset, cloud formation or waves, for a beautiful result, stick and record!
#4 Multi mode: As impossible as it may seem, you can take pictures and videos with 6 podos at the same time! Enough to fire up your imagination.
#5 Booth mode: This mode allows you to create a small photo booth at a party for example, as an activity. Stick it to a wall, put a chair in front of it, 3 pictures, 3 seconds interval and a photo collage transferred to your smartphone. Let the silly faces contest begin!
#6 Solo mode: Get rid of your phone by activating this mode: you'll only need to double tap your Podo and it will take the picture after a countdown.
And with any mode, you can abuse the countdown option! And a high quality picture on par with the famous iPhone 7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 with a 2.2 µm sensor that produces 5MP pictures.
If you decided to get yourself the Podo Camera V2, let yourself be tempted by its waterproof case, which will protect it in case of bad weather, or underwater for adventurers.
And its carrying case? A small and elegant case which will protect it in case of accidental drop.

PODO CAMERA - Free App for Android

Eddie, Jae and Sam are the co-founders of the young company Podo Labs Inc., based in San Francisco. These 3 former roommates from UC Berkeley decide to create in 2013 a revolutionary camera that can be place anywhere to be able to take pictures from far.
In 2015, more than 3000 backers on Kickstarter allow them to create the first version of their Podo camera with more than $427 000 raised. Podo won several prices, was highly publicised, was delivered in the entire world. However, the company didn't stop there, 1 year later, it's a brand new campaign with a brand new version of Podo, improved based on previous defaults, that it launches! A real success since it is $761 130 with 8 802 backers that they raise.
It's only the beginning for this brilliant company specialised in hands-free devices, who with the 2.0 version of the Podo barely launched, already puts forward an unique adapter that can make any headphone wireless : Jack.
