The Moment that Got Away

When you have kids, your video camera works overtime. Kids grow so quickly and change so often, we want to capture each and every precious moment. So we try to keep a video camera close by. But even when we plan our video coverage like it's a military campaign, those once-in-a-lifetime moments can still elude us.

Sometimes it's because we screwed up and ended up with unwatchable videos. We have videos that are too blurred, or too dark. We have videos that are so jumpy that watching them gives you motion sickness. We have videos shot in "portrait mode" (I took this one with our regular point-and-shoot camera, and turned the camera on its side, forgetting that I was shooting a video, not a photo). So we've got a cute video of Jammy, learning how to jump, but not quite understanding how to keep both feet in the air at the same time -- but you need to turn your head ninety degrees to watch it.

video


We even have videos of Moments that don't capture the Moment at all. In this one, we must have pressed the "Record" button without knowing it. Then, when things started happening and we zoomed in to capture The Moment, we pressed the "Record" button thinking we were turning it on.... not turning it off. Hence this lovely video of a basketball parquet floor.

video



But the most frustrating video Moments are the ones I never got to capture. For example, 3Po and Jammy learned to ride two-wheelers at the tender young age of three. They were the subject of many stares and impressed looks -- but I have no video footage of that era. Zero. Zip. Nada. Not the first time they ever balanced on two wheels (although, to be fair to myself, they learned after about five minutes of me running beside them, so there wasn't really time to run a grab a video camera) or even any shots of them once they got really good at it. And it's too late -- all the video footage of six year olds on a bike cannot compare to a video of two tiny three-year olds zipping around on two-wheelers.

Fortunately this is the era of lightweight, high quality video cameras like the Flip . I have two Flip cameras myself, so I've got one at home and one for the road. And if my kids decide to hop on a friend's unicycle or try a kick-flip on their scooter, I'll be ready.

We don't have a video camera at all so I have missed many many moments. I did borrow my dad's recently but he lost the USB cord so I can't download the video. My son is 5 & I have 1 lousy 10sec video taken with my camera when it snowed. I have been eyeing a Flip & would love to win one!

main entry: Well one of those missed moments for me were years ago during that era you speak of when we had the video camera that was unfortunately heavyweight like a ton of bricks on your shoulder & we lugged it inside Disney world for our first & only trip there every with my then 8yr old daughter hoping to capture her very speacial day and as we were thinking we were taping it and go to view it back on the screen see it blank only to find out no one had gotten that BIG BRICK BATTERY that has to be charged from the kitchen counter and put it back into the Monsterous video camera. So we lost any moments we would of wanted to show her as she grew up to pass on and still had to lug that old heavy obeject around the rest of the day which I either wanted to toss in the garbage can or rent a baby stroller just to carry it. We bought a disposable picture camera but clearly it was not the same as live enjoyment of that once in a lifetime moment to have and remember. I'd love to win this awesome giveaway so I can capture speacial moments of my 6yr old grandson as we spend time together for him to have someday so thanks for the chance Blogher & bonggafinds2

I never had a video camera when the first eight kids were growing up. I missed thier first concerts, their plays, their sports, their dance and just the moments that they were being kids. For me, I wish that I would have had a video so that they could see how cute they really were! I wish my daughter could see how well she really sang! I wish that they could have had footage that made them laugh at themselves. And most of all, I wish that I had a video camera then so that I could have remembered all the good things that I seem to have forgotten.

Amy on May 18, 2010 at 9:24 AM said...

I wish I would've had a camera when my daughter was born. Not a spread eagle shot, mind you, but when they set her on my chest (since I was so delirious I don't remember any of it). Boo. :(

I wish I had a video camera during my second pregnancy and our move from hawaii to colorado (they were at the same time). Heck, I didn't even HAVE a point and shoot camera...just my measly little camera on my computer. It was terrible to not get our memories documented during our last few months in hawaii...or to be able to capture my growing belly. i would LOVE one of these! ;)

I wish I would have had one when my daughter was first born. We had this big clunky one that was just made it unfriendly to use so those early memories never got captured. :(

I wish I'd had a flip when my German Shepherd had his first visit to the lake. I would have begged him as eager to jump into the water, but he just barked and bit at the waters edge scared to go in. Even his beloved ball being thrown out to fetch couldn't lure him in!

I could have really used a video camera when I spent the weekend with my cousins sewing my wedding dress. We got a bit loopy trying to get the sleeves to work. And now that they aren’t able to join us for the wedding it would be nice to have that memory saved in video… we didn’t even end up taking pictures

Oh I'm DYING for a Flip camera. I debated buying one last week, because last Thursday we had our first ultrasound for what will hopefully be our first successful pregnancy. When we saw that heartbeat (!!!), I wished so much at that moment we had a video camera so we could have remembered that moment always. I'd like to get a Flip camera to take to all our future moments, so we can capture these moments forever!

I wish I'd had a video camera to tape our musicals in high school. Believe it or not, there was a time when parents did not crowd the aisles with their camcorders. I'd love to show my kids "the way we were" back then. They'd get such a kick out of these real-life "high-school musicals."

I wish I had a flip camera when one of our dogs was lying on her back begging for a belly rub, rolled a little too far, and fell off the bed...resulting in my husband and myself dissolving into laughter. Poor puppy.

I've missed the first few weeks of life of our newest family addition, Gianna. All of the hugging and kissing of her doting big sister and when her older sister climbed into her bouncer with her. A little dangerous, but cute. Missed that. darn it!

i would like to have a video recorder to take more shots of my kid. i have a lot of videos to watch of me growing up and i loved that so much. i'd like my kid to have the same experience.

Brandi on May 18, 2010 at 2:12 PM said...

With a 2 week old and an 18 month old, I’m sure there are many fun snippets in my future. But I wish that I would have been able to whip out my video camera on Mother’s Day this year when the 18 month old was mimicking her Dad yelling into paper towel tube. He made a few generic grunts and howls and animal noises and then he gave me the best Mother’s day present ever by yelling “I love Mommy” into the tube so that my sweet, precious 18 month old girl yelled “Ah Ahhhhh Momma!!!” It was a loose interpretation, but I know what she meant.

Also, I have a horrible memory. I rely on pictures and videos to hold on to the past.

I would love to have a flip video camera whenever my two grandsons (ages 5 & 2) come over to visit.

I wish I had had a Flip Camera a few weeks ago, when I was visiting my family in Seattle and saw my two little nephews (4 and 2 years old) riding their bikes together for the first time! Something that adorable should have been captured on video!

Jeska on May 18, 2010 at 4:28 PM said...

I would love to catch a video of my cat fetching her plastic ball. No one believes that she does it! She bats it down the stairs, goes chasing after it and brings it back up to do it all over again.

I'd love to record every day things my husband and I do for my family. They live on the other side of the country, and it would be nice for them to see me more often, even if not in person.

msj09027 on May 18, 2010 at 4:59 PM said...

I would like to be able to capture special moments such as my son performing and upload them on to Facebook or youtube to share with family that lives in other states.What a great way to stay in touch!

I wish I had a flip with me at my daughter's confirmation three Sundays ago. She volunteered to stand in front of the entire congregation and give her testimony. I can't remember a time that I was more proud of her! She is turning into an amazing young lady and I want to capture every single minute!

Jenny on May 18, 2010 at 5:21 PM said...

I wish that I had one when my husband proposed to me. We have a couple pictures after he proposed, but I really, really wish we had a video of the actual proposal. Everything else was perfect, except that we have no video :(

One day my 6 yr old was unhappy with the decision we’d made about something. He kept demanding that we reconsider, and then the kicker was, he added for effect, “I’m NOT joking.” It was one of those had-to-be-there moments, but we laughed about that for so long. Wish I had it on film.

My 3 year old nephew...who is a handful...is always into something. Last time I visited, he showed up to my dad's house wearing spongebob pajamas, light up cowboy boots and he had a smiley face drawn on his forehead. My sister blamed his dad who let him dress himself. He proceeded to put on a show for all of us. I wish I had caught him on camera!

I spent a summer in Britan in college, and I wish I could have had a video camera to record some of the wonderful events I experienced. The still prints don't do those memories justice. To capture the bustling streets of London or the quiet countryside around Inverness would have been wonderful!

Just last week at my daughter's preschool graduation I wish I had a video camera. I had my still camera with me, but I couldn't capture her ridiculous antics with just a still camera. I would have loved to preserve her solo on the Mexican Hat Dance and the way she danced and laughed during "Tutti Ta." A flipcam would have let me share those hilarious moments with her grandparents who live too far away to be there in person.

Would love to have had this when my daughter started walking and now as she's dancing and singing.

Living in alarge city, there is lots of crime and actitity that only a video can capture the truth and garner a solid conviction! This camera could be used to send (with another email account ) the video to the appropriate Police agency and remain unknown to the criminals!

This past Friday my brother was staying the night at my sisters home that she shares with her fiance. Scott (my brother) last remembers falling asleep on the couch. At some point in the middle of the night, he began sleep walking and eventually found himself in my sister and her fiances bed - sleeping next to them. They all awoke at the same time when my sisters alarm went off at 6am and hilarity (and confusion) ensued. Man, I wish I could have seen that. Over, and over again. Haha... Thanks for the great giveaway!!

When my son and daughter were about 4 & 5 we lived in Virgina Beach and one day we went to the grocery store. There outside was the Oscar Meyer Weiner mobile taking auditions. My son got up there and sang his heart out but I didn't have anything with me to capture the moment.

I missed capturing both of my kids after tyhey were born and I really wish I got them on video right after the birth. Not during but I would like to have the moment afterwards because that is something that only happens once and I want that memory forever.

I wish I had a Flip when my best friend and I crossed the finish line after walking 60 miles at the Dallas Komen 3-Day in 2008. We were tired, injured, mentally exhausted, and in tears… but we walked across the finish line hand-in-hand into closing ceremonies. It was one of the biggest accomplishments of our lives and it would have been fantastic to have digital proof. Hopefully we can rectify that since we are doing it again in November.

I wish I would have had a video camera last summer when my husband's grandma was giving my kids crazy advice about what they should be when they grow up. We had no idea she would have a heart attack and die two weeks later and while my husband and I will remember this advice, my kids are probably too young to remember Mamita.

My nephew recently had his 1st birthday party with cake and everything. He was sitting in his high chair eating cake with his fingers, with blue and red Spiderman icing coating everything. :) My dad leaned down to say Happy Birthday to him and my nephew was so delighted to see Grandpa he reached out and pulled him by the ears up close for a kiss. And smeared red and blue icing all over my dad in the process! It was priceless! My sister was taking pictures of course, but a video of that would have been a keeper. :)

I don't have a video camera, so would love to get the FLip. There are many occasions that i wished i had one, but one time when my Grandson was 13 yrs old and stood about 5'7" he climbed into my dryer head first with his glasses on, turned around inside and came out head first with his glasses still on his face. it would have been great to have captured on video.
