Life with the Narrative Clip. An interview with Javier Ortiz Castillo 7

Santiago, Chile

How long have you been using your Narrative Clip? 
It arrived in late May this year.

How often do you use your Clip and in what settings?
I use it on weekends especially for my outdoor trips, trekking and mountain biking. I love to capture the best moments with my Narrative Clip.

Please explain your decision behind getting a Narrative Clip? 
I liked the concept of Narrative Clip, capture important moments of our lives in photos, because you lose a lot of time in preparing to take pictures with a regular camera and sometimes the magic of special moments is lost.

Describe what is it about the Narrative Clip that you like best? 
A device that captures photos every 30 seconds is amazing, it helps you better enjoy every moment. When you arrive at home, you plug your Narrative Clip to computer and upload these photos to a server and you can see them on a smartphone, it is really incredible. So you get to have all your favorite moments in the palm of your hand.

How do you wear/use the camera?

The photo is called “Finding the top of the mountain”.

Do you have any stories around how people react to the Clip?
Here in Chile there are few people who know the camera. Among my closest friends, nobody knew it. They usually ask me if this is a device for measuring heart rate or something like that, because I always use new equipment for sports. Then when I tell them what it is, they are fascinated.

What is best moment you’ve captured with the Narrative Clip and why?
My best time using Narrative Clip was a trekking trip with a special friend, because the scenery was beautiful and we really enjoyed the trip. On top of the mountain we ate a delicious picnic. These have been the best photos that have been captured so far.

What’s a specific use case for your Narrative Clip that you’re looking forward to trying out?
Maybe leaving the Clip to record a sunset, it must be great to record this kind of sequence or something like that. Also, I’ve never uploaded picture to Twitter.

What’s a feature(s) you’d really like to see added to the Narrative service in the future? 
I wish I could upload photos directly to the server without connecting the Clip to a computer, so it would be quick and easy to view photos on the smartphone. The technological evolution is going to make it more of a priority to use the smartphone than a computer for this type of use.

Anything else you’d like to add or other Clip photos you’d like to share?
Here are more picture of places in Chile from my clip. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to tell my opinion of this great device that has changed my life !!
