What is PogoCam?

Transfer photos & videos

PogoLoops & Smart Case

image21

 PogoCam is a very tiny camera — only 1.7 inches long and weighing 0.2 ounces — smaller than a tube of lip balm.  It’s so small, you’ll barely notice it on your favorite pair of eyeglasses or sunglasses. It attaches to your glasses with a small but powerful magnet. We work with several top eyewear brands to create frames with a feature that we call PogoTrack — a built-in track where the PogoCam attaches. 

PogoLoops & Smart Case

Transfer photos & videos

PogoLoops & Smart Case

image22

 When you buy PogoCam, we give you 3 sizes of PogoLoop. The PogoLoop is an attachment for PogoCam that slips over the arm of your glasses frame.

With either PogoTrack and PogoLoop, you can wear the camera on the right or left side of your glasses.

To keep the camera so small and lightweight, we keep the storage and battery small. But no one wants a camera that can’t store a lot of photos and videos, right? So with every PogoCam, you also get a smart case. The case is small enough to slip in your pocket or purse without noticing.

Transfer photos & videos

Recording Videos with PogoCam

image23

 When you fill up the PogoCam with 100 photos or 6 videos, you simply connect it to the smart case which will hold 16,000 photos or about 180 thirty-second videos (or some combination of the two). While the smart case offloads all your photos and videos, it also charges your PogoCam. Basically, the smart case is your external hard drive, charger, and communicator.

We also know you want to share those photos right away. With the  PogoCam app for Android and iPhone you can! The smart case communicates to the app — on your smartphone or tablet — via Bluetooth®.  PogoCam is a new way to capture the moments you experience. It gives your photos and videos an intimate feel because it is your point of view. You won’t be watching your life happen on your screen while you snap a photo. You’ll be in it -- taking photos and videos of your experience as you see it! 

Recording Videos with PogoCam

Using the PogoCam’s smart case

Recording Videos with PogoCam

image24

 In today’s post on “Getting Started With PogoCam,” we’re covering how to record video. You already know about the two buttons--front and back. In our quick instruction on taking photos, you learned that the front button takes photos. Brace yourselves for the big reveal... the back button records videos. You never saw that coming, did you?

Here’s how it works: press and hold the back button to power on PogoCam. You’ll hear 3 beeps telling you that the camera is booting up. Then you’ll hear 2 beeps telling you that the camera is ready. Once the camera is ready to record, you can start a video by pressing the back button. You will hear two slow beeps to let you know recording has started. Press the back button again to stop recording video. You will hear two quick beeps to let you know video has ended

That’s it! That’s how simple it is.  

PogoCam will record a maximum of 30 seconds of video at a time. If you don’t hit the back button to stop recording a video, you’ll hear the two quick beeps that end recording when you hit 30 seconds. In general, the 1GB memory of PogoCam should hold about six 30-second videos. You can offload these to the smart case and start recording again quickly. (We’ll cover the smart case in the next blog post.)

We like 30 seconds because it’s easily shareable. But there is another advantage. We’ve found that a lot of great shared videos are really only about 10 seconds long. But if we limited the PogoCam to 10 second videos, you might miss the perfect 10 seconds. So we figured out that 30 seconds gives you (and us) time enough to catch a great moment and then edit that 30 seconds to the perfect 10 seconds for social sharing.

So now that you’ve attached PogoCam to your favorite glasses and taken some photographs and videos, you’re ready to offload those photos, see what you got, and take more. That’s where the smart case comes in. To make the PogoCam as small and light as we wanted, we put all the storage, charging, and Bluetooth® features into a pocket-sized smart case. Here’s how to take advantage of it:

The PogoCam docks inside the smart case. While the camera is docked inside, the case recharges the camera and offloads all the photographs and videos to the case’s 16GB memory. So while your PogoCam holds 100 photos or six 30-second videos, the case can hold somewhere around 16,000 photos or 180 thirty-second videos. You probably won’t need to test that because the case will also connect to the PogoCam smartphone app via Bluetooth. So as soon as your photos are offloaded to the case, you can begin transferring them to your phone and sharing them on whichever social site you prefer.

How the smart case works

Using the PogoCam’s smart case

 You charge the smart case by plugging it into a computer, wall charger, or a car charger via USB cable. (You’ll want to be careful that you’re not using a phone’s “quick charger” as those can send too much voltage to the case.) While the case is charging, you’ll see a slowly flashing green light to the left of the cable input. When the case is fully charged, that light will be solid.

Bluetooth® is great for transferring photos in small batches. When it comes to video or a large batch of photos, it isn’t as quick. We didn’t want to sacrifice the resolution or length of the videos for slight improvements to Bluetooth transfer. So, while you can transfer photos from the smart case to the PogoCam app on your phone or tablet via Bluetooth, you’ll use the included USB cable to transfer videos and large numbers of photos to your laptop or desktop computer.

Here is how that works:

  1. Connect your PogoCam to your smart case and switch the case on to transfer all images to the case
  2. Plug the USB cable included with your PogoCam into the case and into your computer
  3. Your computer may automatically launch a Finder window (Mac) or My Computer window (PC) but if not, you can open Finder or My Computer to see the case docked as an external drive
  4. Open the case in Finder or My Computer and then open the DCIM folder
  5. Drag all the files you want onto your desktop or into your preferred folder. Photos are .JPG files and videos are .AVI.

That’s all there is to it.

You can use the PogoCam app to delete all the files from the smart case to clean it up. Once the photos and videos are on your computer, you can edit them, email them, share them on your favorite social network, or whatever you please!

 PogoCam was designed to work with your style. You can attach PogoCam to almost any pair of glasses or sunglasses with the PogoLoops included in the PogoCam package. In fact, attaching PogoCam to your glasses is so simple that you won’t believe we’re putting this in writing.

PogoCam comes with 3 PogoLoops —little metal mounts that slide over the arm of your glasses or sunglasses. A magnet on the side of PogoCam attaches to the PogoLoop.

You’ll first determine which Loop is right for which glasses. You can do this by eyeballing the loops and your glasses frames or using the sizing chart that is included in your package. You want a snug fit. You’ll also find you want to use different loops on different glasses. For example, my eyeglasses have narrower arms than my sunglasses. So I simply grabbed the largest loop for the sunglasses and a smaller one for my eyeglasses. Ideally, you’ll find the right size for your glasses and leave PogoLoop attached but you shouldn’t worry about taking PogoLoop off your glasses. It won’t damage your glasses.  Once you’ve got PogoLoop on your frames, you’ll attach the safety ring to the PogoCam. You’ll slide this over the arm of the glasses frame and slide the camera up to PogoLoop. The ring is a precaution against accidentally detaching PogoCam. Because the camera is attached with a magnet, a strong jostle or bump can dislodge it. If that happens, the safety ring will keep the camera hanging onto the arm of your glasses frame until you can reattach it to the PogoLoop.

 Once you’ve taken photos with PogoCam and offloaded them to the smart case,  you’ll want to check them out on a device. You want the free PogoCam app, available for iOS and Android.  Check out our video page  and look at the video for the apps! Here is how it all works in a  longer explanation below.    

There are four main functions of the PogoCam app:

  1. View your battery and storage status
  2. Download photos to your phone or tablet
  3. Clear photos and videos off your smart case
  4. Adjust the alignment of photos

Once you install the app and open it, you’ll be walked through a simple step-by-step setup to pair the app with your smart case. To get a headstart on this, make sure your phone or tablet’s Bluetooth® feature is turned on and open to discover new Bluetooth devices.

Connecting the case to the app

Once paired, the app will open to the Gallery (which is empty of course). Along the bottom of the app, you’ll see 3 simple menu items: Gallery, Smart Case, and Options.

PogoCam app navigation

Smart Case

The first thing you’ll want to do is go to the Smart Case screen. Here, you’ll see if your case is successfully paired. On this screen, the app will display the battery status of PogoCam and smart case. It will also show you how many photos and videos are stored on the case. Below this information, is a big blue button that reads:

"Select photos to download"

Smart case screen in PogoCam app

Tap it. You’ll see a gallery with your photos and videos in it. Here you can select photos one-at-a-time (up to 20 photos) to transfer to your phone via Bluetooth.  Once you select a photo (or many), a blue button appears at the bottom of the screen. On the left, you’ll see “Download to Gallery.” On the right, “Delete.” Tap the Download side. The app will show you the progress of downloading your photos. Once downloaded, you can view them in the Gallery.

Two things to remember:

  1. The app limits you to 20 photos at a time when transferring to the app. If you have a lot of photos that you want to transfer all at once, you'll want to use a wired connection to a computer. Bluetooth is convenient but it can be a bit slow with a lot of files.)
  2. You will need to transfer videos with a wired connection. 

Gallery

App gallery

Back on the Gallery screen, you’ll see a standard gallery of your photos. Tap on one. For each photo, you have three additional choices.

Delete icon The garbage can deletes that single photo, as you might have guessed.

Share iconYou’ve probably seen this everywhere. If you don’t know, it is the “Share” icon. Tap it to share this photo on any or all the social networks you would like. Tap it to email the photo; tap it to send it in a text message.

Adjust iconThis is the adjustment icon. There isn’t a lot of editing you can do in the PogoCam app. Most likely, you already edit your photos with filters on Instagram or add titles in iMovie. We don’t want to limit how you edit your media, just like we don’t want to limit where you share it. So on the PogoCam app, “Adjust” is there to address one particular PogoCam feature: adjusting the alignment of a photo. Click this edit icon and slide the bar at the bottom to adjust its alignment. That’s it!

Options

The options screen in the PogoCam app

The Options screen is your Swiss Army knife to all things PogoCam. Firstly, it’s a shortcut to delete all the media on your smart case which is super helpful for cleaning house and getting ready for your next adventure.

 When you’re done taking pictures and recording videos for the day, offload everything to the smart case, move your photos and videos to your phone via the app or to your computer via USB, and then clear the memory of smart case. 

 

As we’ve covered, the smart case can store approximately 16,000 photos or 180 videos so it’s easy to use it as an external drive and keep dumping photos and video on it. The strength of the smart case though is that it allows you to do more with the PogoCam while you’re out. But if you fill up the smart case, you won’t be able to offload the photos from PogoCam in a pinch.

So we suggest this practice: when you come home or get back into the car after an outing with PogoCam, transfer everything on the smart case to your computer and then remove everything from the case using the app.


To do this, turn on the smart case and open the app. Tap on the “Smart Case” menu item at the bottom of the screen. If your smart case isn’t immediately recognized, press and hold the Bluetooth button for three seconds (a blue light will appear). Once your smart case is identified in the app, tap “Options” in the menu. There you’ll see a red link to “Delete all media from the Smart Case.” Tap it. You’re done.  

App options

Once you’ve synced the case to the app and removed all the photos and videos from the case, you’ll want to dock PogoCam in the case and recharge both case and camera. The best camera is the one you have with you.  After all and you’ll want PogoCam to be ready when you need it.

Four Quick Tips for the PogoCam

Four Quick Tips for the PogoCam

image31

 

1. Hats might get in the way

A hat with a brim might get into the frame when taking photos or videos with PogoCam. If you are wearing one, push the brim up so you’re sure it’s out of the way.


2. Keep PogoCam close to the end of your glasses’ frame 

Whether you’re using PogoLoop with your own glasses or with our free PogoTrack glasses, you’ll want the PogoCam to be positioned as close to the end of the frame as possible.  For best results, have the front of the camera slightly in front of the eyeglass frame.


3. Don’t aim at the sun

Do not take photos or video into the sun. While it’s important to have plenty of light for the best photographs, try to have the sun behind you or over your shoulder when capturing images.


4. Wait for the second beep

When taking a photo, always wait until you hear the second beep before you move. In sunlight, you should hear the second beep in less than a second, but in dim light at night or inside it will take longer.

 Because PogoCam is attached to your glasses most of the time, it communicates with you through a series of beeps and lights. PogoCam includes a "wallet card" to remind you of all these signals. The wallet card's reminders are reproduced below but here are two simple videos to demonstrate the LEDs of PogoCam.

 PogoCam's smart case does all the heavy lifting for you. It charges PogoCam; offloads photos and videos; and transfers that media over Bluetooth to the PogoCam app or a cable to your computer. Here is what all the lights on the smart case mean:

Charging the smart case

  • Plug smart case into a computer, wall charger, or a car charger via included USB cable. (You’ll want to be careful that you’re not using a phone’s “quick charger” as those can send too much voltage to the case.)
  • While the case is charging, you’ll see a slowly flashing green LED to the left of the cable input. When the case is fully charged, that light will be solid.

NOTE: When the camera is docked into a smart case that is plugged into a charger, both camera and case charge. The camera and battery lights work as usual -- they blink when charging and remain solid when fully charged.

Using the smart case to charge PogoCam

  • When PogoCam is docked in the smart case, a slowly flashing LED indicates it is recharging
  • When the camera is fully charged, the LED will become solid.

 

Using the smart case to offload photos and videos from camera

  • When PogoCam is docked in the case and offloading photos and videos, you will see a quickly flashing green LED under the camera door.
  • When you fetch photos from the case using the PogoCam app, a blue LED in the middle of the case will illuminate indicating that a Bluetooth connection has been established.

Attaching PogoLoop

 Here is our quick guide to attaching PogoLoop to your glasses.

pogoloop-1-hero.png

 

Identify the sides of the PogoLoop

pogoloop-2-front-back.png

Each PogoLoop has a metal side which faces outward where PogoCam attaches and a plastic side which faces the arm of your glasses.

Putting PogoLoop on your glasses

Step 1

pogoloop-3.png

Pull the tab on the end of one loop to extend it to fit over the end of the temple.

Step 2

pogoloop-4.png

Holding the PogoLoop with the metal side up, insert the end of the temple into the extended loop from the top down.

Step 3

pogoloop-5.png

Slide the loop up the temple about 1/2 inch.

Step 4

pogoloop-6.png

Pull the other tab to extend the opposite loop and wrap the loop around the end of the temple and slide the PogoLoop up the temple to its final position.

Step 5

pogoloop-7.png

PogoLoop should be positioned with the metal side facing outward and aligned with the temple. If needed, PogoLoop can be tilted slightly upward or downward on the frame to change the camera angle.

Step 6

pogoloop-8.png

The front of PogoCam should be aligned with the front of your glasses. When you remove the camera, you can leave PogoLoop attached to your glasses so its always ready for use.

 PogoCam and the smart case work with your computer like any camera or external drive. You can transfer videos and photos to your computer once you connect via the USB. You can connect the smart case OR the PogoCam itself to a computer with the USB cable.

Once you switch on the case or camera, your computer should recognize it as an external drive. Look for the DCIM folder. All your videos and pictures will be in there. You can drag them to your computer and once you’re done, you can delete them out of the DCIM folder to clear your camera or case. (If you do that, make sure to empty your trash before you eject the case or camera.)

Here is the step-by-step:

  1. Connect your PogoCam to your smart case and switch the case on to transfer all images to the case
  2. Plug the USB cable included with your PogoCam into the case and into your computer
  3. Your computer may automatically launch a Finder window (Mac) or My Computer window (PC) but if not, you can open Finder or My Computer to see the case docked as an external drive
  4. Open the case in Finder or My Computer and then open the DCIM folder
  5. Drag all the files you want onto your desktop or into your preferred folder. Photos are .JPG files and videos are .AVI.
  6. Once you've moved everything from the smart case or PogoCam, you may delete the files from the smart case or PogoCam. 
  7. If you delete the files from the case or camera, remember to empty your trash before unplugging the case or camera.
  8. Eject the case or camera like you would an external drive.
  9. If you leave the camera or smart case plugged into a USB port of a computer, it should recharge.

You can use the PogoCam app to delete all the files from the smart case to clean it up. Once the photos and videos are on your computer, you can edit them, email them, share them on your favorite social network, or whatever you please!

 PogoTec’s philosophy is that one size doesn’t fit all. PogoCam doesn’t only work with one kind of eyewear or one pair of glasses. PogoCam isn’t only built for Apple users. Our app doesn’t only share through one social network. We want our technology to work with the technology and social media that you already prefer.

In that same spirit, while PogoCam cannot yet transfer videos wirelessly, we recognize that some users don’t use a desktop or laptop computer. You CAN transfer photos and videos to an Android or iOS device with cables.

Here is our complete guide to using PogoCam with an iPhone or iPad, without the app, using the included USB cable.

YES, you can connect a PogoCam to an iOS device. However, you CANNOT connect a smart case to an iOS device.

To connect your PogoCam to your iPhone or iPad, all you need is the Lightning to USB Camera Adaptor and the USB-C to USB Type A cable included with your PogoCam.

 

Make sure the PogoCam is powered on before connecting to the iOS device. (Note: nothing will be damaged if the PogoCam is powered off when you connect but you’ll get a warning from iOS and will not be able to view media.)

Once you connect the PogoCam to the iOS device the Import function should automatically launch.

You may select certain images and videos to import or import all.

3-selection.png

When you click “Import,” you’ll be given these options.

4-import-options.png

Once the images have imported, you’ll have the option to delete them from PogoCam. We recommend you do. When you’re using PogoCam without the app, you’ll need to delete images manually.

5-import-complete.png

Unplug the cables when you are finished and iOS will automatically jump to your Last Import gallery.

NOTE: iOS will convert .AVI videos natively. You don’t need to do anything. Just watch your video once before you share it and the conversion will be done so that when you go to share on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or elsewhere, you’re not sharing the original .AVI file but the converted video.

Note on power

PogoCam will not charge while plugged into an iOS device. You can charge the PogoCam through the USB cable and a wall adapter or directly from a computer. If you are using the PogoCam directly with an iOS device, you should avoid using the smart case until AFTER you have transferred files to your device. Plugging PogoCam into the smart case will offload all your files to the smart case. 

Use PogoCam with an Android without the app

 PogoTec’s philosophy is that one size doesn’t fit all.PogoCam doesn’t only work with one kind of eyewear or one pair of glasses. PogoCam isn’t only built for Android users. Our app doesn’t only share through one social network. We want our technology to work with the technology and social media that you already prefer.

In that same spirit, while PogoCam cannot yet transfer videos wirelessly, we recognize that some users don’t use a desktop or laptop computer. You CAN transfer photos and videos to an Android or iOS device with cables.

Here is our complete guide to using PogoCam with Android, without the app, using the included USB cable.

With an Android device

YES, you can connect a PogoCam or smart case directly to an Android device with a USB cable. There are two caveats to this setup.

1. USB OTG Cable

You cannot connect the smart case or PogoCam to an Android with a simple USB-C to USB micro cable (or even a USB-C to USB-C cable). You have to use what’s called a USB OTG cable. OTG stands for “On-The-Go.” USB OTG cables allow a device to act as a host, allowing other USB devices to be attached to them. (This is a good one.)

Here is your setup to connect the smart case to an Android:

Power on the smart case. Then plug in the cables. Android will connect to the case like an external drive. (Details below the PogoCam diagram.)

If you would like to connect your PogoCam directly to an Android, the setup is the same. Make sure to power on the PogoCam before plugging it into the Android. (Nothing bad will happen if you don't, but it won't mount the drive.)

This is how that setup looks:

Once you have powered on and plugged into an Android, you will see this logo in the notifications bar.

1-notification-bar.png

When you pull down the notification, you’ll see the option to Explore:

2-notification.png

When you explore, you’ll first see all the folders (visible and hidden) on the smart case.

3-smart-case-explore.png

Click on the DCIM folder and you’ll find all the videos (.AVI files) and photos (.JPG files).

4-dcim-explore.png

There, you’ll long press on any file to select it. Once you select one, you need only tap on others to select them.

5-photo-selection.png

Then from the menu (the 3 dots in the upper right), you’ll select Move To…

6-menu.png

From there you’ll select where you want to move your photos. In most cases, you'll choose Downloads.

7-move-to.png

Your Android should have an app in the app drawer called Downloads where you can see all your downloaded PogoCam images.

2. AVI Conversion

Here is the second hitch: because PogoCam is doing everything on as small a processor as possible, we chose the AVI video format. Androids don’t play this format by default. This is why you cannot preview your videos while they’re on the smart case. You’ll need to download and convert them first.

To convert your videos, you’ll need an app. Two of the easiest to use are Video Converter from VidSoftLab and Video Converter, Video Compressor from  VidCompact.

Each app works similarly. After you load an AVI on your phone (by emailing it or downloading it from your cloud storage), you’ll open the app and choose to “convert a video.” For best results, we suggest choosing to convert to .MOV or .MP4 files. These are the most commonly used file types on social media.

Here are the main screens for those apps showing the "convert" function:

The apps will save the file on your phone or tablet. You can then view the file on your device or share it anywhere.

Note on power

PogoCam and the smart case will not charge while plugged into an Android device. You can charge the PogoCam and the smart case through the USB cable and a wall adapter or directly from a computer. If you are using the PogoCam directly with an Android device, you should avoid using the smart case until AFTER you have transferred files to your device. Plugging PogoCam into the smart case will offload all your files to the smart case.
