Work on the new film
This removes the need for a camera operator, and it will -- I hope -- create an interesting feel for these scenes as they'll feature people reacting to me but won't show me at all...
And if I can give props to my department here, they came up with the money for this (unexpected) expense, buying both the camera and the mini-hard drive/recording device to archive the footage.
The camera pictured above is the one we ordered, a VioSport AdventureCam. Pretty good resolution, and it's typically used for mountain bikers and other sports enthusiasts. It should fare pretty well in my little household adventures.
