If toting a purse, diaper bag, and cooler pack wasn’t enough, most days you’ll find a camera around my neck. My son is growing and developing so quickly and I don’t want to miss a second of it. My only way to hold on to these precious memories is through photographs. In our high-tech society, printed photographs are archaic and often end up in boxes. With all of my digital photos stored on my computer, I’ve wondered how to preserved them in a unique and creative way.
Have you ever been to a wedding and watched a photo montage of the couple onscreen? Now YOU can create your own “movie” of your photographic memories with KODAK’s Picture Movie DVD. It’s simple, quick, and fun! And…available at your local CVS/Pharmacy. Here’s how it’s done:
1. Take your storage media of choice (memory card, miniSD card, memory stick, xD card, CD, DVD) and insert it into the appropriate spot
2. Use the touch screen to select up to 60 pictures to create your movie
3. Determine your preferred sequence
4. Choose the “perfect” song to fit the mood and feel of your event
5. Choose pro-style pan and zoom technique options to create a smooth ebb and flow from one picture to the next
6. Walk out with your KODAK Picture Movie DVD in hand
7. Watch it on your TV or computer
What an artistic way to capture birthdays, showers, weddings, and family gatherings. And at $14.99 that’s a great deal!
Now I bet you’re wondering…that’s great and all…but what about something to capture the photographs with? I’m glad you asked!
According to a recent survey of 1,000 moms, 50% said they missed “priceless” photo opportunities such as childhood “first” moments. I must be one of those 50% because I am guilty of forgetting my camera at the most inopportune times. I’ve learned my lesson about leaving expensive-looking items in the car and find KODAK’s Celebration Single Use Cameras to be a savvy solution. These cameras are loaded with KODAK 800 speed film for pictures with brighter, vibrant colors. They are also outfitted with a simple, manual flash (range of 4-10 feet). For a unique look at the world from you child’s perspective, hand them one of these cameras and have them start shooting. If nothing else, it will keep them from dropping, taking apart, or trying to eat your expensive digital camera. These cameras are sold in packs of 10 and on sale now for $54.90 on the KODAK website. Be sure to check the Picture CD option when you drop the camera off for processing to get instant digital pictures.
