Shonin Streamcam Compact Wearable Camera

Tell your side of the story with the Shonin Streamcam Compact Wearable Camera. This clever system captures events from your point of view as they unfold. Connecting to the cloud, the Shonin Streamcam automatically saves all of your footage with a single tap. Or, you can choose to broadcast in real-time through live social media streaming. The Shonin Streamcam uses a cellular SIM or Wi-Fi tethering to capture and save. Or, you can opt for an internal SD card for a hard copy of the footage. Either way, you can review the content immediately on your smartphone, edit versions, and share. The companion app also lets you customize the camera with ease. The camera attaches easily to your clothing and gear thanks to really strong magnets. And, because it’s loud and proud with bright color options, potential assailants will think twice before committing any crimes with you nearby.

@eric - sorry for not replying earlier. We did consider this but decided to focus on the 'camera' aspect of this product. However, we are looking at ways to incorporate similar functionality in other ways such as through software. @Eldritch - we didn't quite make it to $400K on Kickstarter, but will try to keep it on the roadmap for future upgrades. Thank you both for the comments.
Eldritch Pollock
"Pre-Event Recording" for 400k stretchgoal, please!
eric wagner
Could you incorporate a "panic mode" initiated somehow with the record button that would send an alert to family or friends or followers? My daughter travels daily to rural areas to provide educational services. I signed up for the Shonin camera to support her work in two ways. She can record her interactions with her students for future reference and the Shonin should act as deterrent and event recorder that we hope we won't need.
Shonin Inc.
@eric wagner - this is something we are exploring for sure. If we determine it is feasible, we will add it to the product roadmap. We're hoping to enable through a software update.
eric wagner
Will it be possible to ping the LTE capable model in the event it is ditched by an assailant?
Keola Dacalio
@creator awesome can't wait to add the extended battery to my pledge!
Shonin Inc.
@hali - thank you for your support and kind words. Customer service is our #1 priority, and we will move as fast as we can!
Shonin Inc.
@Troy - good idea, we were thinking of a similar modification - the challenge is maintaining waterproofing if we do that. But this team has delivered waterproof electronics before so we're confident we can figure it out.
Troy Seman
My chief complaint about cop cams is that they have control of the footage and know how to game it. Especially crooked cops and crooked cops can game someone else's footage to get rid of the good cops. I don't think people think that far ahead on the issue.
Troy Seman
Hey guys. Can you add a tether hard-point to the unit. I'm thinking about my large camera. It has a lanyard hard point attached to an eyelet that seems to be part of a metal chassis sticking out of the plastic enclosure. I'm thinking of something heavy duty like that. I was thinking about carrying the device around without wearing it all the time because that throws off threat flags with people and I would like to have the device on my person at all times. Thank you, lots of great ideas an features and yes there is a huge need for this device.
Sending you good mojo... You have a lot of excited backers hanging on your every development. Guess that's what happens when you're on the edge of greatness. Thanks for interacting with your customer base so readily, and taking all our suggestions and wishes into consideration. Just please hurry, I need this shonin, and really two more, yesterday (:
Shonin Inc.
@Craig Apache Read - Great questions.
1. Should work fine in the winter months, it's of course not as chilly down here as in most places in Quebec, but you should not have any problems. 2. Yes, there is a lanyard hoop on the mag clip, and we are actually also looking at putting a hoop on the device itself, which is a bit more complicated. 3. We do not gaurantee that it floats. 4. Pre-event recording was a very popularly requested feature, so we're working out a way to make it happen maybe through a software update. That aside, we've designed Shonin from the ground up to be very very easy to activate, so you lose as little time as possible from when an incident starts to when you're documenting it, so it will still be better than many options on the market. Thank you very much for your support, and we will do you proud! @Gerry Neville - Thanks for your support, Gerry, much appreciated! @Matthew Mullaly - Thank you for support, we are also looking forward to delivering you an awesome product!
Matthew Mullally
Congrats on the success of your project. Looking forward to it. Cheers from Korea
Gerry Neville
Few people reach 1st base on their first time at bat - Congratulations on reaching you goal. Looking forward to receiving my camera so my golf buddies can't take prefered lies and deny it anymore ���
Craig Apache Read
I have been watching this campaign since the start and am very excited for this to hit my hands. I'm also thrilled as it is based in Canada �� and am hoping it helps with my 1st question, and that being... how does the camera hold up in winter/cold conditions? As you know in Wuebec it does get a tad chilly in the winter months. 2nd question: I am always worried that with a clip on it magnetic that it might fall off either by being knocked off or pulled. I was wondering if there is a loop pass through (like you see on thumb drives for instance) that you can pass a small string etc and secure secondary invade it falls. (Although you all would love people having to buy multiple units, alas I wouldn't be able to aford another one as quickly as I would like. I'm thinking just a tooo or something at the corner (or behind) the unit. Just wondering... again maybe you might notice it fall off... or maybe you'd only notice it as it's plummeting to the earth from your parasail etc never to be seen again. 3) Dies it float? And lastly.
Being that I have the need personally and sadly have had a few wearable body cameras as I have a service dog and have been yelled at and pushed around because I have brought my service dog into establishments that don't allow pets... I feel that I don't want to advertise that I am wearing a body camera (as I've seen people's attitude change when they see I have a camera on) I want to record how I'm treated. 4) I was wondering, stretch goal of $400,000.00 is likely not going to be met in the next 60 minutes of the campaign, I was wondering if the option would be available where it's captures 30 seconds before you press record as a paid option and if so, I suspect it would drain the battery. Would there be a way to turn this option on or off? I plan on wearing this camera daily regardless if the 30 second feature is added or not. Thank you Shonin team for coming up with this product and making it affordable to the average person. If you need a beta tester for longevity recoding/testing I volunteer. I have a background of QA testing for the Interactive Entertainment Industry (professionally) for the past 9 years. Again.
Shonin Inc.
@Keola - you will be able to get the extended battery as an add on when we send out our survey very soon.
Keola Dacalio
How to get the extended battery?
Zafar Ali
Thanks for the sample video.. I dont know if i am correct but the audio is not so clear ????
Shonin Inc.
@R.Schmidt - you're welcome sir! Thank you for your support!
Thanks for the sample helps with perspective for use.
Shonin Inc.
@Michael - maybe a clearer way of saying it would be that the camera will preserve the landscape orientation even if is itself oriented 'vertically'. Hope that clarifies.
Shonin Inc.
@Michael - thanks for the question - in the 'vertical' orientation, it would still shoot landscape, it would just flip the video just like a phone changes orientation - this allows you to clip horizontally or vertically without worrying about the video orientation too much. So yes, the date / timestamp would be correctly oriented in either case. Hope that helps!
Shonin Inc.
@Zafar Ali / @Wardell - posted a sample at the end of the page, please feel free to take a look. Note that it's representative of our current stage prototypes, but given the new stretch goals it's not representative of our eventual production capability which will be better.
I noticed in the gifs that some people had attached it horizontally, and the guy in the leather jacket clipped his on vertically. Would it shoot a portrait video in the latter case? Would any text like a date/timestamp automatically orient itself correctly on the video?
Zafar Ali
When will we get to see an actual real time sample video made from this camera ??
What happened with the sample video?
Shonin Inc.
@Johnathon McClellan - Yes you will have the ability to set whether the recording light is on or not.
Johnathon McClellan
Will we have the option to turn off the light in the front of the camera so you can record anonymously?
Shonin Inc.
@Ron Gonzalez - yes, congratulations everyone! We have officially hit the 300K stretch goal level and unlocked Low Light Mode as a result. We are so excited to include this in the product and will be reaching out with further updates soon.
Shonin Inc.
@John E Schulz - we do not currently have an audio-only mode but we will see if it makes sense to add it to the product roadmap. Thanks for the comment! @John Rykart - we made it to 300K like you predicted! @Saif Khan - we have unlocked the low light goal, we will send an update about this shortly.
Ron Gonzalez
congrats to everyone for reaching the 300K Unlock!
John E Schulz
It's a camera with a mic… but is there / could there be an AUDIO ONLY option for recording?
Like, the camera shuts down, and has some LED visual indicator of that, but the audio keeps going?
I'm thinking of this from a "less-heated" journalistic perspective: you want to record everything a person says, but they aren't OK with being on video for it.
Or, frankly, voice notes. It's always helpful to record spontaneous impressions of an interview / event that just happened, even though there's nothing meaningful to record on video.
John Rykart
I'm sure we will make $300K. It's been steadily climbing today.
Saif Khan
As of right now, there is 4 days to go; and the funds are $2617 away from reaching the 300K goal.
My questions is - if we do not reach the 300K goal by the end of it, will the low-light unlocking not be offered ?
This is my first campaign so i am not sure how these things go about
i hope you guys can still fulfill and continue to offer it given that we are "almost there". Also, can you please post a video of an "actual recording" done by the prototype.
I would, and I am sure a lot of the backers would like to see the quality of video this device can produce. Thanks.
Shonin Inc.
@George We will message you directly and see if there's something we can do :) @Joey Cristina - The battery pack powers the device, and it charges separately from the device. We do have plans for an accessory to charge multiple battery packs at once, but it's a bit further down in our roadmap. Thanks for the questions!
Joey Cristina
@creator How does the battery pack work exactly? In other words, is it charging the battery on the device itself or powering it directly? Is it charged separately from the device or do you clip it onto the device and they both charge simultaneously? Kind of related to that, will there be an accessory that will make you capable of charging more than one battery at a time?
I will be giving a presentation in January of 2018. While I will be recording the presentation, I would LOVE to wear this device so that I can capture the audience. The idea, I can take the recording - and then edit in the video of the audience asking questions .. So if there is a beta I can participate in, I am very interested
Shonin Inc.
@John Rykart - yes, we've gotten a lot of requests for this. The current set up will allow for extending recording time using the battery pack, but it's more difficult using the cable to do so from a battery pack, especially while wearing the device. We are working on a way to make this work, possibly another USB interface or accommodating it in an accessory, but don't have a solid plan yet. @Zafar Ali -
1. Yes you will be able to wear it around your neck.
2. Should be pretty much instant.
3. No it cannot at this time. Hope that helps!
Zafar Ali
I have a couple of questions: 1. Can we wear the camera around our neck as a necklace ? 2. When the recording button is pressed how long will it take for the recording to start ? Any lag ? 3. Can the camera record by itself on detecting human motion ? Thanks
John Rykart
A few people have mentioned wearing for prolonged periods of time and using a portable battery pack to charge on the fly. Since we are using what looks like a proprietary charging cord, how long will it be? I'd hope somewhere in the 4'-6' range. Also if the cord fails, is a replacement going to be easy to obtain?
Shonin Inc.
@Matthew thanks for the comments! We are pretty confident we will hit the stretch goal you are looking for, we currently look like we are on track to surpass it. We have taken your comments to heart and will do our very best to ensure you have a great experience with the Shonin Streamcam.
Matthew Mullally
Even your still picture marketing in the campaign page shows still pictures showing mostly situations at night. I thought it was implied that low light settings was easily capture able. For me, it's a must. Twisting my fingers for the 300k mark so I don't need to cancel. 7 days left. Good luck
Matthew Mullally
Low light mode should have been one of the first stretch goals. For most people I assume: low light mode > the streaming 200k stretch goal. To be honest, I'm probably gonna cancel if we don't make the low light stretch goal. My main use is going to bars (many low light settings, especially when outside of them) and making sure that I know exactly what happened and who's at fault for drunken nights/and dumb people. I probably won't even use it in the day time.
Jake Steele
Hey, new backer here, few questions: 1. What is the Mega Pixels on the Camera?
2. Can it take still photos or just video?
3. Can we use the clip and the extended battery at the same time?
4. Are there any samples of the camera filming in 1080p60fps? Love how the battery life with extended battery is higher then the GoPro for a fraction of the cost. Just want to evaluate how the picture quality compares to other options :) Plan to use this for hiking, would want the best possible images. ~ Jacob
Shonin Inc.
@Scott Palacheck - we will contact you shortly, thanks for the comment. @Wardell - we hear you, should have some footage today or tomorrow.
Thanks for the fast responses. I am looking forward to the demo video before close of the project. Could be the difference between canceling or upgrading for me (I'd like to break 300K). A body cam is something I've been looking forward to and waiting for the right find.
Scott Palacheck for Shawn Nicholas
I volunteer for a non profit organization that I am in direct contact with visitors and random vehicular traffic. Our Blitz days are the 15-16-17 of September where hundreds of ppl are around and I maintain a safe area where cars and guests mingle. How can I get a working demo to stream my pov to the net? Scott Palacheck
Shonin Inc.
@Wardell - talked to the team and we are looking at enabling a vibration on your *phone* when recording on the *camera* starts.
Shonin Inc.
@Wardell - not vibrational, but there is sound feedback and there is also a recording light.
Is there any vibrational feedback when the camera has been activated or deactivated?
