I love making videos but I generally don’t have time to edit them so I don’t post as often as I would like. To celebrate the opening of Kodak’s online store, Nuffnang and Kodak gave me the opportunity to test out one of the new Kodak PlaySport pocket video cameras so I thought it would be a good chance to finally do something fun!
They asked me to share a day in my life and I thought it might be fun to cover some of the… misconceptions that people have had about me and my life in the past XD
Note- This video was edited using Final Cut Express.
As you can see, being a blogger really isn’t as awesome as a lot of people tend to assume hahaha! I just tend to work from 10am-10pm being boring in front of a computer, I don’t leave the house very often (thus the lack of snapshots posts lately!), I do boring things like send invoices and write email after email after email…. you get the idea XDThat said when I do actually get out and use a video camera it needs to be sturdy because well…I’m very clumsy. I dropped the camera about 10 times in the short time that I had it >_< And of course all of our electronics need to be able tot survive one of my pillow throwing morning wake up calls! Luckily the Kodak PlaySport was apparently built for stuff like that! As I don’t do anything water related, I couldn’t really showcase this camera’s other main feature: waterproofness without taking it in the shower with me (not going to happen!). Of course after racking my brains for hours over how I could show that the Kodak PlaySport is waterproof and coming up with absolutely nothing… now I realise I could have shown you some marbled nail art techniques… with the camera actually in the water I was marbling on!! I always think of awesome things after the deadline is up >_<
Next time! Maybe I could even try to take some more video before I have to give it back… hmm…
Anyway here is the product information about the camera itself and details of the competition to win one of your own:

To win one of these awesome rugged Kodak PlaySport cameras and a suite of great Kodak products, dream up a photo and write a blog post of what crazy adventure you’d go on if you had a Kodak PlaySport – but the catch is, you need to take the photo at home.
So… if your dream is to take a Kodak PlaySport on Safari with you, all you need to do is to pose in a safari suit, with your little sister’s stuffed animals as the wild animals in your “safari park”… Maybe include a pot plant that can pose as a palm tree…. you get the idea.
