Several months ago I videoed and took photos of the Homegoing Celebration for Brother Carlton Boddie member St. James Temple MBC Tarboro NC and member of the Edgecombe County Law Enforcement Choir. On this past Thursday I videoed and took photos of the Homegoing Celebration for Mother Martha Lee Maye member Anderson Chapel MBC Macclesfield NC and I lost all of the video footage. My camcorder has a 80 GB Hard Drive like a computer and I can save up to around 100 hours of recording without using a SD Card.
Both of these homegoings were awesome and one that would have been something to look at again because all parts of the entire service was great. I hate I lost the footage because I wanted to see the recordings again myself.
The problem with losing the footage is that I have a couple of extra batteries so when the battery went dead I waited too late to change it and the camera froze up like a computer. I have purchased 3 cameras over the past year however I have purchased around 6 within the past couple of years because I thought the cameras were no more good. Two of the cameras the zoom messed up and I couldn’t control zooming in and out while recording. One of the cameras just quick working altogether.
The hard drive issue I could recover previous recorded events but I could not record future events.
I was about to order another camera on January 1st but something told me to go online and google the problem I was having. I found that I could try to format the media in my set up and I did and guess what I now have 3 working cameras. By formatting the media I lost all the recordings that I had on the cameras but I had already copied them on a DVD so that was no problem. But the homegoings did not save to the drive so therefore it was no way to recover it and on the camera on that day it showed blank lines instead of a date like the other recordings.
I would like to apologize again for not being able to provide a video however I was volunteering my time, I treat my work just like I am getting paid for a service.
While videoing I also took around 300 plus photos of both homegoings so I am glad I was able to provide the photos whereby you can put them in a nice photo album to be saved and passed on to future generations.
I want to thank both the families of the late Bro. Carlton Boddie and the late Mother Martha Lee Maye for allowing me to be a part of the these beautiful homegoings.
