Are you wondering what the best tech gifts are for Christmas? Read my sponsored post on how I’d love to WOW my almost ten year old this Christmas with his own road trip video set up – and how you can be the hero gift giver too.
One of the best tech gifts for Christmas
No matter the age, the best tech gifts are always at the top of holiday wish lists. Tech gadgets on this years list include the 8th Gen Intel® Core™ Processor, including the Lenovo 920 Yoga.
My oldest son, Sebby loves watching dash cam road trip videos on his tablet, he even streams them to our television. He watches them daily, knows the names of all of his favorites, and is becoming quite the geography expert because of it. I’m fairly certain if asked if he wanted a new GoPro to record his own road trip videos AND a new computer like the Lenovo 920 Yoga to edit them to his own YouTube channel. he’d be over the moon. (Santa, are you listening? I need help with the Lenovo!) With any luck there will be one under our tree!
With the amount of video recorded, it’s super important to have a speedy 8th Gen Intel® Core™ Processor. I know Sebby would be disappointed if we spent the weekend filming and then we weren’t able to edit or post his new movies with ease.
Power your road trip video with Intel!
Tips for Shooting a Driving Time Lapse
*Choose your Camera: Get yourself a GoPro
*Mount your camera: Choose a great location that won’t obstruct your view.
*Choose Camera frame rate: Shooting at 1 image per 1/2 second seems to be common.
*Watch the battery: you don’t want your filming to end abruptly!
*Make sure to have fun with it!
*GoPro comes with their own editing software, which makes it really easy to set up the megapixels and frame rate.
*Watch your footage every day if you’re on a multi-day trip!
*Edit fast – I don’t mean like Speedy Gonzales, but don’t let the video sit on the hard drive of the Lenova 920 Yoga for months.
If you’re giving the gift of tech this holiday season, it’s pretty important to make sure that you’re giving a high powered computer with an 8th gen Intel Core processor to go along with them. It will make your gifts of virtual reality headsets, drones, video doorbells and GoPros that much more amazing.
