Pros :
1. Great small size
2. Bluetooth integration with smart phone is an A+ idea.
a. You can control settings.
b. You can see/ensure it's pointing in the direction you want.
c. You can review video, (although it looks choppy via bluetooth)
d. Haven't tested it yet, cuz I probably will never use it, but you can have it instantly upload videos.
3. Night mode is pretty decent, although movements can get more blurred. Fast camera panning in this mode will show blurry video, but mounted it to my helmet, took a ride on my motorcycle, and the video was pretty good! It was way brighter than the youtube video from 808yewtube (search for her) using the HD170 Stealth. Maybe not as smooth/sharp, but definitely brighter. Though you lose detail next to bright light sources.

Cons :
1. Video quality is so so, but of course, that's in the specs anyways (480p), and the lens is small. I never knew what 480p meant...all it means is regular 640x480 video. 320p is simply 480x320 video. But good enough for my needs.

2. Making video clips has problems.
a. When trying to make a clip from the looping buffer, the "progress" bar did not reflect ALL my video I shot that day. I had to move the progress marker to the beginning, then I had to press REWIND quite a few times to get to where I wanted to start my clip. Then when the clip was created, the beginning of the clip WAS NOT where I selected, but rather somewhere in the middle of my 15 minute drive.
b. I attempted to make a second clip, this time for a snippet of time farther back. This time, there was no "creating clip" message, and it instantly said my clip was created. Upon examining the clip, it was empty.

The Looxcie is everything I expected it to be - a reasonably decent quality, unobtrusive wearable camera. The bluetooth sync with my Nexus One is sometimes temperamental, but I can usually get it to work by either power cycling the Looxcie or turning off and on the Bluetooth on my phone. The small red light can be easily blocked by a small black sticker.

I wasn't aware that the earpiece made a beep every 30 seconds (audible to me, not to others) when recording. That is helpful for timing use of the moments button, but a bit annoying when using for long periods of time.

I have used the Looxcie while doing street photography, particularly when getting photos of police and protesters. I take high quality imagery with my real camera, but have the Looxcie running to capture any impromptu encounters with those who don't wish to have their actions recorded. They focus on my Nikon, and not my bluetooth headset.

I just bought a Looxcie 2 from the company website. I've had it for a little over a day so I thought I'd share my thoughts.

The Looxcie 2 comes in two memory sizes. 4GB or 5 hours of video and 8GB or 10 hours of video. The memory is divided in two so that half the memory is storage and the other half is the looping buffer. When you plug the USB cable into your computer and turn on the Looxcie it will show a little less then 2GB or 4GB depending which version you have.

Here's Amazon's link to the 4GB Looxcie: Looxcie LX2 Wearable Video Cam for iPhone and Android - Retail Packaging - Black

I bought the 8GB version from the Looxcie website because only the 4GB version is being offered at this time by Amazon. When I plugged it in I thought I had the 4GB version and had to contact tech support to figure it out. It's explained on the website but not in the documentation.

I had a specific need for a camera that I could control from my iPod Touch. I can control the camera from a good distance away which is better then expected. I have a service dog and I'm going to use it for a "dogs eye view" as I work him.

I'll update this review in a couple of months with my thoughts.

I've bought a Looxcie 2. Aug. 28th of last year. So for about 5 mo. now. The earloop clasp broke around 30 days later. I am now using a small rubberband to hold the earloop in place and in my opinion, works just as well but be warned, the earpiece clasp is pretty thin plastic and will break after normal wear and tear. And just recently the "30 second clip" button no longer works as it's suppose to. You can still save clips but you actually have to create them from the raw footage. I use my looxcie mainly for security purposes and will continue to use it. I just don't feel like sending in the whole unit just to have them replace it with a newer one that will do the same thing within the same amount of time of the first one. It still works...just not as well as when I got it out of the box.

I'll review this in two parts: the device, and the applications.

The device itself (not the apps) does exactly what it says. It records well. It records in a loop and you can grab clips by pressing a button, or you can review the entire buffer later, and extract clips ad hoc. It can also send a clip to youtube, facebook, twitter or by email, if you hold the same button for a few seconds. That's great. My wife loves it, and I think it's pretty amazing. It does have some downsides though.

- Video quality is pretty good. it's not HD, but it's nice. I think it's better then what you might see in a cop car's camera.
- Sound is actually better then I thought. So many people complain about sound and it wasn't bad at all. When driving, it can pick up people talking in the back seat, and me in the front.
- I like the fact it loops the video. That's pretty amazing. you just hit record and let it go.
- it works as a blue tooth device as well. that's pretty cool. my wife called me, and it went to the Looxcie - pretty cool, and then when we hung up, it was still recording. no bugs in that for me.

- It wears on my ears though to have it hanging there more then an hour. The ball cap thing might help but then it looks more conspicuous. It also pulls inward so it hangs at like a 35 degree angle. it's hard to get it to be vertically straight for me. I'm still adusting it. that might be fixable.
- I've had to restart the Looxcie device twice now, in the 4 days I've operated it. I think that's a bit much.
- It would be nice if the press to send to youtube, was instant - it really just creates a clip and attaches it to an email and basically you have to press send.
