has anyone done it?
i would love to record the birth of my next baby.
Hey I recorded my first, second and plan on the same with my third i am expecting in August which will be a homebirth. I don't have too many tips accept to get someone to film who you plan on not helping out much, tell them not to zoom in much at all and take a spare battery and tape with you.
With my first i had my mothers friend filming as i knew she was a strong woman who had already had 5 kids of her own but at some points she ended up being a bit lazy and just putting it down to "help me" when i really just wanted her to film.
With my second it was a bit better as i could tell my friend who would be filming what i didn't like about the first one happening and i also showed her the first tape as well. Also the better the camera of course is the better. I really wished i had a high definition one...instead i only had a mini cassette one which also made it harder to convert to the computer and then onto a dvd.
If you need any help or want to chat feel free to PM me grin
