Blogtoberfest Day 12 - Weighing Video Camera's.

Today is international Weigh Your Video Camera Day, did you know that? Any guesses here of how much these two weigh?

This brick weighs 891 grams. This video camera is older than our children. Both their births were recorded on this camera. Endless summer holidays have been filmed on this camera. Family and friends weddings have been recorded on this camera. But it is a brick! Heavy to carry around and the last two times at school assemblies I have brought it out to record the girls, it has refused to work. Making a cross Helen who misses the moment on film.

Enter my new friend, who weighs a mere 230 grams. How is it even possible for a video camera to be that light?? I am not one who is up with the latest technological gadgets, gee, I think I am the only person I know who has a phone that doesn't take photos! But I am impressed. Putting the brick into retirement and starting to film snippets of our life with this baby!

Goodness I feel like such an American - I don't have a clue how much a gram weighs! It is amazing, though, how much smaller everything has become recently!
