In the market for a fun new toy?
Leave it to Hammacher Schlemmer to come up with a really cool one. It's called The Roadtrip Video Recorder. It is a video camera that attaches to your car window or dashboard thereby providing hands-free video recordings while you travel.
I love shooting video. I love achieving perfect composition and capturing great sound. It's really satisfying to bounce light around for perfect exposure. When I'm traveling with family and friends, it's important to me that we take home some great images that capture the moment. The problem is, I have a really hard time stepping away from the action to set up my gear. Like many shooters, I've come to the conclusion that in order to find that sweet spot between enjoying the moment, and capturing the moment, sacrifices need to be made.
