Today we are excited to announce that the Narrative Clip 2 will ship with video capability. This is one of the most requested features by the Narrative community and we love it when we get to bring those requests to life. The Narrative Clip 2 is currently available for pre-order on our website.
Narrative’s mission is to help people capture and share their stories. We also believe you should be able to tell these stories without compromising your experience of them. Adding the ability to capture video was the natural next step.
How does it work?
Once you’ve connected your Narrative Clip 2 to your smartphone, you’ll be able to set the double-tap functionality to capture video instead of photos. To provide you with different options of how to shoot video, the Narrative app on your smartphone will act as a remote. Easily change the recording length in the app to be longer or shorter than the default, or choose to stop the recording manually by double tapping again. Alternatively, you can start and stop the video recording through the Narrative app for a more hands-on control.
And the video will fit seamlessly into your Narrative timeline for viewing and sharing.
The Clip 2 will be available in Piano Black, Arctic White and Narrative Red with a range of accessories and retails at $199. All Clip 2 units will be shipped with the video feature enabled no matter when they were ordered. Pre-orders are open at http://getnarrative.com and shipping begins Fall 2015.
Super nice feature, really !
Any hints about battery life ? or space required ?
Hi Tony! You can read up on the details here https://support.getnarrative.com/hc/en-us/articles/209042537-How-does-video-in-Clip-2-work-
Have a great day, Elisabet
So pleased to read this!! Was tempted to get the new Ion Snapcam but this has saved me 😀
Awesome that you are considering a Narrative Clip 2, keep it up 🙂 Elisabet
Haha! Considering one? I pre ordered a few months back 😀 Can’t live without my original clip so had to get the clip 2. This video capability is just the icing on the cake! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Nice! How will the video feature affect the battery time? I’m guessing it’s going to drain a lot more battery than taking a photo every 30 sec.
By the way, who won the design contest?
The battery time depends on how long the videos are, and their quality. You can choose to use 1080p or 720p for your videos! You can find more info here: https://support.getnarrative.com/hc/en-us/articles/209042537-How-does-video-in-Clip-2-work- 🙂
An announcement for the skin design contest will be made later this month too. 🙂
Nice! Like the idea to have the ability to choose settings.
Looking forward to hear about the Design contest. Does the design with most votes win the clip or will it be more than one winner?
There was one people choice winner and two staff picks. More info here: http://blog.getnarrative.com/2015/09/announcing-the-winner-of-the-narrative-skin-design-contest/
The skin design with most votes will win as long as it meet our terms and conditions.
Does it record audio along with that video?
Yes it does 🙂 read more here https://support.getnarrative.com/hc/en-us/articles/209042537-How-does-video-in-Clip-2-work-
Have a great day, Elisabet
Does it manage and visualize GPS data? Thank you 🙂
Yes the videos will be geo tagged just like the Narrative moments are today, check out narrativeapp.com and the Explore feed to get a better idea if you don’t have a Clip yet. Have a great day, Elisabet
Thank you Elisabet! I have a Clip, but I can’t see where my GPS data is showing… on the mobile app?
You should be able to see the gps data above each moment next to the time the moment was captured. If you need help to trouble-shoot your Clip 2 please drop us a line at email@example.com, have a great day, Elisabet
Sweet…. Hope shipping starts SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
