Miami, FL (November 20, 2013) – MeCam was founded with the mission of capturing life’s beauty from the point of view of the user. Developed by Drew Martin as a solution to effortlessly document life on the go, MeCam is a proprietary, mini hands-free wearable video camera. In its quest for developing new and exciting products to capture life in video, pictures, and sound, MeCam announces the launch of the MeCam HD. The diminutive camera weighs 2.5 ounces and measures 2x2 inches. MeCam HD shoots in full 1080p HD through its high-grade glass lens. A proprietary app connects the device via Wi-Fi to any smartphone/tablet. This allows the user to view in real-time what they are recording, playback, and share content without having to connect to a computer. So you #nevermissamoment
MeCam is live now on Dragon Innovation. For more information visithttp://www.dragoninnovation.com/projects/31-mecam-hd
Equipped with other fun and functional features, MeCam HD is versatile for both video and photography. A high grade glass lens provides true color representation with high contrast and rich color saturation. A 3-axis internal gyroscope provides image stabilization for when the user is moving. Photo options include a simple one shot, three time burst options where you can take a series of photos in quick succession, and three different time lapse options for activities such as life-logging. The MeCam HD also includes useful video tools such as one button, which will take 15 seconds of video for seamless Instagram upload and another button, which will take 5 seconds of video for Vine.
To change the way users share their content, MeCam has also partnered with HighlightCam to provide an amazing proprietary video editing solution. The program works by singling out the “highlights” of the footage and shoots back a fully edited video seamlessly. MeCam is working diligently to incorporate this technology into the MeCam app so their users can easily submit their footage and receive back an amazing edited video, all through their phone. Once incorporated, users will also have access to this through the MeCam site, where they can take edited footage and share it with friends and family.
The two wearable brackets, the clip bracket and the safety pin bracket, provide various creative options in which to wear/attach the MeCam HD to different clothing and subjects. It also comes with a sturdy neck strap, giving the user a multitude of choices on how best to wear their device. MeCam will be releasing other mounting and casing options including a universal camera mount for tripods and an attachable waterproof case.
"Everyone has a story to tell,” says MeCam founder and CEO Drew Martin. “When I created the first MeCam I thought people just wanted something niche and novelty and that is what how our first MeCam was designed. I soon realized that many of our users wanted something a bit higher end that is feature rich and that was why we developed the MeCam HD. We believe with both lines we are providing the consumer with great options in which to document their life.”
MeCam HD is now live on one of the newest additions to the crowd-funding platforms, Dragon Innovation. Dragon Innovation is a venture backed outlet that ensures hardware projects are poised to execute before funding. Unlike other platforms, Dragon will work with companies before, during and after the funding campaigns in order to ensure the product is delivered.
“I decided to do an unusual sort of launch because of how great I found Dragon Innovation to be,” says Drew. “I’ve been working on bringing MeCam HD to market since I started getting feedback on the original, and Dragon Innovation is a way to do it faster while offering our customers special pre-launch pricing, and the chance to join and support MeCam as we continue our journey.”
The MeCam HD is now live at http://www.dragoninnovation.com/projects/31-mecam-hd. With 30 days remaining, MeCam HD’s goal is set at $70,000. Join them in their journey and#nevermissamoment

MeCam was founded with the mission of capturing life’s beauty from the point of view of the user. Developed by Drew Martin as a solution to effortlessly capture life on the go, MeCam is a proprietary, mini wearable video camera. After living in New York for seven years, which included careers in finance and owning electronic retail stores, Martin took what he learned from a brief detour into the spy camera industry and applied it to create MeCam. Martin moved to back to his hometown of Miami and launched MeCam in 2012 with the vision of capturing and celebrating the fun and active lifestyles of its users. Live life to the fullest and let MeCam capture it for you.
