The GoPro camera is interesting for the chimps—we’ve captured them licking it, poking it, and just in general investigating this weird thing that is understandably confusing and interesting. Well, setting it up to record is apparently not the easiest thing for all of us. Every time we collect video from the camera, the first shots are close-ups of the humans’ faces, which sometimes show confused expressions. I know that some people have deleted these possibly incriminating shots. As Jackie was making yesterday’s video with Jamie figuring out the camera for the first time, she was tempted to post this hilarious piece with me trying to also figure it out. She didn’t include for fear of embarrassing me, but I thought it was so funny and felt, “Why not let everyone enjoy this?!” So, here you go, a pretty embarrassing but hilarious video of my confused face.
Note: you’ll hear me say that I thought it was taking photos. The reason for this belief is that Sarah once set up the GoPro, thought it was recording video, but found later it just took pictures the whole time. I couldn’t figure out for the life of me how to tell if it was taking video or photos.
