Narrative ウェアラブルカメラ ナラティブクリップ ホワイト NCLP1-08TW01WHT
- Build quality is good. The feel is nice.
- The clip stays on its place, doesn't slip away or tilt.
- I used it for two days: 1 day at my work and 1 day one my domestic flight and meeting with my friends. Of the 1840 photos, I am yet to find a single worthy photo.
- I have still not been able to view the pictures on the iPhone Narrative Clip app. (I have to first copy the photos to my computer and then connect it to internet to be available on a cloud, from where I will download it to my phone?) I guess that is the process.
- I am still not able to reset the clip to factory default.
- In Windows 7 all raw images are tilted by 90 degrees.
- The clip occupies 1.33 GB of space with 11 days of use (see screenshot)
I hope they have fixed all these issues with the new version.
Unfortunately, I have stored most photos locally and not used the service. That is because I am usually in a high cost Internet environment or none at all. I wish I could load them locally and then upload the batch when I got home.
Reviewing the sequence of shots makes your brain recall things it otherwise couldn't or wouldn't.
Thanks for a nifty device. Now to Clip 2
Not many people really know what this device is and most people assume it's a fitbit device. Certainly there are many ethical issues involved. Don't be a jerk and ruin the "life logging" fun for the rest of us.
I find that clipping the Narrative to my sleeve is actually better then in the middle of a shirt/jacked like recommended and I get more straight on images. I decided to go the rout of not using the software and uploading to the servers, instead I just dump the images to a temp folder on my desktop and weed out the ones with potential. I'll then sync to my iPhone where I can add filters and upload to instagram. This might be tedious for some, but I can take a few minutes and post/tag a batch to upload when I have time. I've even clipped this to my dogs collar and have gotten some very cool shots. I welcome the odd distorted images that some times occur when a lot of movement is happening. My biggest worry was actually people asking me what the device is. When it's on my sleeve, people don't even notice it and if/when asked I just say it's a pedometer so I don't have to answer a bunch questions or get weird looks.
Some things I would like to see is the ability to adjust how often the images are taken. Would be nice for 5, 10 or 20 sec intervals that can be set with the software. The double tap feature for taking forced photos is very finicky and rarely works for me, but then again, that's not what this was designed for. Check out my instagram for samples: IdeaAttic
