Snoppa Technology has made a camera that fits in the palm of your hand. The Vmate is a handheld, high-performance smart camera perfect for capturing those unbeatable moments. Its small design makes it perfect for anyone taking photos on the go.


The 4K camera is integrated with a micro 3-axis stabilizing system to help combat your shaky hands. It boasts a rotatable lens, a 400-degree mechanical pan range and remote-controlled wireless preview. The Vmate uses a USB port for charging and offers 160 minute continuous runtime. At only 118 grams it’s small enough to fit in your pocket and practically as light as a feather. The camera itself is capable of shooting video up to 4K@60fps, includes 8x slow-motion, and captures stills at 12 megapixels.


The touchscreen display is 1.22 inches and offers a brightness up to 850 nits. You can use the touchscreen to set controls and change figurations with just a finger. Vmate also comes with a built-in WiFi module to pair with the Snoppa app. The app offers wireless previews and broadcasting mode, along with video and photo synchronization. The camera also comes with a built-in microphone.


The Vmate Basic Pack is set to retail for $322 and includes the camera, case, Type-C cord and a wrist strap. Check out the website for more information on features and options. First shipments are expected to begin March 2020.
