How often has your kid been doing something silly, exciting, or extremely cute and you’ve thought, “I’ve got to get my video camera!!”?
And how often have you run to grab the video camera only to find out that the cute behavior is finished?
In the early years of our family’s life, we had an enormous, complicated video camera. It worked great, but we rarely pulled it out. And we rarely caught those cute little moments when my older kids were little. And then there’s the issue of transferring those video clips onto the computer…
That changed quite a bit when I got my first point and shoot digital camera, when Reese was a newborn. That camera took short video, and finally I was able to catch those fun little moments.
Since then, I’ve had a few different video cameras, each a little better than the last (and certainly more convenient). I am glad to have something to capture the silly and the meaningful moments, because kids change SO fast. I wish that I’d caught more of those moments, though. Like everyone’s first steps, or first words. Or first somersaults in Grandma’s spa.
This week, the Juice Box Jungle widget in my sidebar is featuring Canon PowerShot SX210 IS, which combines the ability to take great photos, & also shoot high definition video. No more wishing you brought the camcorder, now you can just whip out your camera and start shooting away (as a bonus it comes in two awesome colors – Pink & Gold!).
What are some of your favorite moments caught on video….and what do you wish you’d been able to capture but didn’t?
Disclosure: As much as I would have liked it, I did not receive a Canon PowerShot SX210 IS. However, Canon and JuiceBoxJungle did sponsor me to write this post, and talk about my experience shooting video of my family.
