About a year ago, I purchased a camcorder, a Panasonic variety that records on digital tape. It wasn’t a small purchase, but it wasn’t top of the line, either.
I’ve probably used the camera three times since then. Most people use camcorders to record their children or family, but I have no children and I don’t see my family too often. I could have brought the videocamera with me when I went to Lake Tahoe earlier this year or Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia last year. I didn’t want the burder of carrying an extra bag with me, even though it’s rather small.
At this time, I suppose the purchase hasn’t been worthwhile. But now that I’ve considered this, I’ll brining it with me next time I visit some place interesting. Or perhaps I’ll create some kind of video clip that gets posted online and becomes an overnight viral sensation.
Just stop me before I become like the creepy neighbor guy in American Beauty.
