Before I start this post I have to scream something…
I’M DONE EDITING VIDEO…… YAY!
A few weeks ago Nokia emailed asking If I’d be willing to trial one of their new camera phones, the N96 to record a "Day in the Life". Apparently they selected a few bloggers from across the interweb in different niches and I was one of the lucky ones that get picked!
I was, dare I say, MORE then excited as I thought they were actually GIVING me the phone. Honestly, I ran upstairs to tell the husband ecstatically as I was coincidentally in the market for a new phone at the time.
I should have known it was too good to be true.
Through our correspondence I realized it was only a TRIAL. Meaning after I was done recording I’d have to give the camera/phone back. :( oh… well… I knew I’d still have fun! When will I learn that nothing in life is free? lol
Anyway, so my take on the phone… VERY COOL. Most phones have a camera but not many cameras have a phone. Know what I mean? That’s how I would describe this device, it’s truly a Camera then a Phone. The video quality is awesome. Photo capturing with the large screen amazing. Even navigating through your recorded photos and videos was a cinch.
I’m not sure the camera would replace my current one for my food photos as it’s close up capabilities seemed lacking. But for an over all utility camera, especially for a blogger, this device is sweet. It’s 5 megapixel camera blows by LG Dare out of the water. It also has 16GB of memory AND you can watch TV on it!
Ok…. I’m not going to get any more geek then that. I told I need a new geek blog. :)
So here it is. The video start with a makep-less me coming out of the bathroom and includes sneak peaks into my pantry, my fridge, my spice cabinet even my iTunes. I make two dishes, pick up the toddler, we play cars, make his lunch, I go the gym, my sink even leaks! It’s truly just random clips of my life within a 24 (well, 27) hour time frame.
The video below will play through each clip in sequence. If you place your mouse over the video you’ll see all the clips and you can hop around. They are all in order as I recorded them. You can also click here to see the playlist I put together on YouTube.
Ok, I’ll let the video speak for itself. It’s quite long and boring and you may be surprised at how much junk we actually eat for all that I preach. I was. And let me tell ya… the starburst morning habit is NO MORE but we still do go the Candy Store every Thursday. :)
