23 Jul 5 Things I Wish I’d Known About Wearable Cameras
I used to think wearable cameras were only for ripped Australian surfers trying to capture the view from their board, but it turns out there is more to these devices than dudes from down under!
GoPros are incredible cameras and can generally take a beating (although I don’t suggest testing their limits), but last year at a We Are Wearables event I was introduced to a different type of wearable camera, with a very different purpose in mind.
What if you could capture your everyday? Not your trek up Everest or a dive with great whites, but the moments that make up your life. Wearable cameras–like Narrative, MeCam, and iOn–are great tools that allow you to take people on a journey through a unique perspective. As a content creator, I jumped at the chance to film content that could capture real moments.
I bought a couple of different cameras and strapped them to friends, family, and even co-workers in an attempt to become the next Scorsese. The footage I was returned was a mixture of epic and utterly nauseating!
So, to help you out on your journey I have highlighted five things I wish I’d known about wearable cameras.
