Kora & Logan are growing up so fast. I do what I can to savor every moment. One of my favorite ways to do so is by taking pictures. In fact just recently I was looking at photos from a beach vacation we took two years ago, I was blown away by how much the kids have changed in 24 months. It was fun reliving the memories and made me eager to capture more moments. That’s why I was excited to be sent for review the Narrative Clip.
The Narrative Clip is a tiny wearable camera that takes a photo every 30 seconds. You can also tap it twice to make it take a picture.
You can fastening to your shirt collar, a pocket, front of your bike, or set it up stationary to take timelapse photos.
The Narrative App allows you to easily see the photos and search through them to find the best moments.
When the Narrative Clip arrived I was impressed with how easy it was to set up. Simply plug it in to charge and then use the USB cord to connect it to your computer. You will then be prompted to create an account.
After that download the app, sign in, and you are ready to start life logging.
We took turns over the past couple of weeks fastening Narrative Clip to Kora and Logan’s shirts so it could snap pictures while they went about their day.
Before bed each night I’ve been connecting the Narrative Cip to the computer to upload the photos. The photo uploader pops up and does all the work and after a bit we are able to see all of the photos from earlier that day. Here are some of our favorites:
Not only is the picture quality remarkable but I love how small the Narrative Clip is. The kids barely noticed they were wearing it as they did homework, read, played cards, and had fun playing in the backyard and in the park. It allowed us to capture some really great moments from Kora & Logan’s point of view. We always knew Logan was the king of funny faces and thought it was so funny that the Narrative Clip captured his expressions in action.
While every shot isn’t as perfect because people move around we did have fun looking at the blurry pictures too. They did a good job of capturing the kids’ energy and their constant motion.
I was interested to learn that once the photos are uploaded they are stored in the Narrative Clip Library Cloud Service & Software where it automatically rotates the photos for the best viewing position. It also analyzes and sorts photos by GPS, time, lighting, motion, colorfulness, photo composition, and face detection. It can store up to 4000 pictures and the built in rechargeable battery lasts approximately 30 hours. The first year of service to the Narrative Clip Library Cloud Service is free and after that it’s $9 a month.
When you see a photo you like you have a number of options to save and share it including:
- Save it to your camera roll
- Share on Facebook
- Share on Twitter
- Share on Instagram
- Send by Email
I was also amazed to learn that it first launched on crowd-funding site Kickstarter where it quickly earned a place in the top crowd funded projects of all time. It’s a lot of fun and there are so many great ways to use it: capture moments in your daily life, put it in a window to photograph a time lapse sunset, take it on vacation, wear it to a birthday, graduation, retirement party, family picnic, and more. The Narrative Clip Camera is such a great way to capture moments and share your life story and I recommend it to anyone looking to capture precious and meaningful moments.
