Pocket-sized and free flying, Pixy takes the magic of the Snapchat Camera and lets it fly! 

Snap is a camera company that believes in pushing the bounds of what a camera can be and do. We created Snapchat as a new way of using the camera for self-expression, communication, and exploration. Now, we’re taking the power and magic of the Snap Camera, and letting it fly!

Love at first flight

Pixy is your sidekick for adventures familiar and extraordinary. Ready to take off at a moment’s notice—Pixy floats, orbits, and follows you wherever you lead it. Everything you need is right in the palm of your hand. With the simple tap of a button, Pixy takes flight and joins you on your journey. And don’t worry, Pixy will come back to you, landing gently right in the palm of your hand.

Let your creativity soar

Pixy is the perfect addition to your creative toolbox. Pixy captures photos and videos from new angles so you can make every moment fly. There are no controllers or complex set-up. Simply select a flight path and let Pixy take it from there.

Your editing studio on-the-go

Now you can take your editing studio on-the-go. Tap into the Snapchat ecosystem to edit and share your Pixy photos and videos anytime, from anywhere. Use your favorite Snap tools, sounds or apply Lenses before sharing to Snapchat Stories, Spotlight, or any other platform.

New editing tools let you apply Smart Edits like speed ramps, jump cuts, and even 3D to the moments you capture, just by swiping through a carousel of options. 

Share your content, vertical or horizontal, to Snapchat or any other platform anytime, from anywhere.

Make sure your video is at least 5 seconds long. 

That said, feel free to record up to 60 seconds as long as you continue to develop the narrative, give your audience useful information, and deliver a payoff at the end.
