The SmallWonder arrives

The idea is that they are less intrusive than a traditional camera, more portable, and easier to use, and that sets the video threshold to a level where people are more likely to grab them on impulse to film something.

We’ll see. So far I’ve been really impressed with the ease of use, and I’m pretty certain I will be buying one myself for my political blogging. Maybe tonight, given how much I like this thing so far…

Here’s our first test clip:

    So I went out and got one for myself. I’ll post links to any political footage I get. I think this is really going to change the tone and scope of my political videoblogging.
