I have been gathering all manner of obscure video cameras of late. The collection includes infrared surveillance, pocket HD and a mini wide angle camera with double sided tape, (sticks to a motorcycle helmet, etc.). One of the things about the wide angle mini cam is that it has no viewfinder. There is no way of knowing what the image looks like while you are shooting. In fact you can’t even play it back because it has no screen. The only way to know is to import it into the computer later.
I like that limitation. It reminds me of old film camera’s. Having to wait to see the result. It inspires a kind of Zen photography.
It is also about the size of a wrist watch.
This clip is a minimal video for Jennifer LFO that I shot with my Zen mini cam. Enjoy.
