How can we improve the Narrative Experience?

Welcome to the Narrative Suggestion Board!

If you are a Narrative Clip user, I hope you’ve enjoyed using our Clip so far!

With effect from 13 March 2016, We will be temporarily suspending this suggestion board. We are currently in the process of shipping all our pre-orders rapidly and we would like to focus our efforts on providing better personal support to our users over email.

If you are having issues with your Clip, the most effective manner would be to check our Narrative Care Knowledge Base at http://care.getnarrative.com, which is full of information. If you are still unable to find a solution, then please feel free to reach out to us via the care website.

Thank you for your understanding!

  1. 90 degree rotation clip.

    I would like to see a 90 degree rotation clip. This would allow easy portrait or landscape use, which at mo is really annoying. It could be a clip with a ball socket which would allow rotation and tilting.

    • Offer additional mounts

      The concept of interchangeable mounts is great and it would be beneficial to many of us if you offered additional (optional) mounts. One that would be valuable to me is a mount that would be suitable on a sloping dashboard.

        • Use glass, not plastic!

          The plastic glass that covers the lens is very soft. After week of use is a demaged (I carry clip in a cloth bag).

          • Alternative uses for "display mount" from packaging

            The narrative to camera comes displayed under a square plastic cover. I took off the cover, took apart the cardboard which held that little plastic "mount" and now use that mount using double-sided adhesive tape on my windshield and helmet. You should sell more of those little plastic "mounts" for multiple placementS of Narrative 2 and send me a couple please!

            • Always on recording tha overwrites old footage automatically.

              I have been using a Dash-Cam for some time now, and love its features, and would like to be able to duplicate this in a wearable camera. I love having a camera that records everything, and then lets me choose only the clips I wish to keep. I understand of course that the main issue with being able to do this in a wearable, is going to be how to power it, but it would still be very handy to work the same as the Dash-Cam, at least for hours at a time. My current Dash-Cam records 17 hours of…

                • I love this concept so much. I would buy it immediately if you would offer a version with built-in camera stabilizer + 16GB memory

                  Love this idea!!!

                  Please, please provide a version with:

                  - camera stabilization

                  - 16GB memory

                  - possibility to record longer than 120 secs + easy indication (LED?) whether it's recording or not, I'm not sure this is already built-in now?

                  Thank you!

                  • When using the clip 2 on the collar of a shirt will this version actually capture what is directly ahead of me?

                    I had the original clip and it did not function well on a t-shirt collar at all. All pictures taken were from a upward angle towards the sky. Will this larger capture angle help this or no?

                    • I like to see realtime video from narrative clip to my smatphone. So i can see what narrative is seeing. Or you can have monitor on clip 3.

                      Where is monitor to narative? At least i like to use smartphone as a monitor for my narrative clip. Thank you. I like to use narative as my external camera of my smartphone. It could be linked by wifi or bluetooth or usb.

                        • 16GB of built in memory storage

                          If the battery is able to last up to two days, then it should be able to store as much as possible. 8gb is only a couple thousand photos. If I'm on vacation without internet then does that mean I have to buy a couple of clips in order to not worry about storage getting full? Please upgrade the space :)

                              so to be more like functional jewellery rather than an odd object clipped onto my clothing

                                • Provide ClipOn covers in different colours.

                                  I had a clip. Quite often I felt I would like the Clip to melt in colourwise. A white clip goes well with a white shirt, but stands out too much on a blue or black shirt.

                                  I suggest that you provide a bag with interchangable ClipOn covers in different colours, some of them should be 'murky' or have graphics. A bag with six different colours would give enough options.

                                  This ClipOn could also double as a lens cap and shut down the camera if clipped on in 'wrong' position: the hole for the lens turned 90°.

                                  • Self leveling mount or user leveling mount

                                    Particularly on women's clothes it is hard to get a clipable position that has the Narrator level and looking straight a ahead. Many images lose good parts because they are on an angle; after rotating in post processing a lot has to be cropped to get back to a rectangular image.
                                    So it would be good to have some sort of ball pivot system in the clip mount so the Narrative can self rotate so it is level and the right way up. Obviously this would have to be damped.
                                    Even of this could be done manually it would help…

                                      • When will an upgraded version of the Narrative clip be available?

                                        I'm a big fan of Narrative. However, I noticed that some areas need to be upgraded.

                                        Firstly, the speed of the camera in low lighting conditions needs upgrading. And also, white balance or color correction should improved as well, too much noise.

                                        Looking forward to a new clip with all these better enhancements in the near future.

                                        It would also be nice to have a short video capturing option when you just want to capture some interesting moments, say 1-2 mins?

                                        • Make clip version two smaller and less obtrusive.

                                          R&D at clip need to make this device smaller and less obtrusive in day to day use.
