An Engagement Cam has been designed to be simple and intuitive to ensure you can focus in the moment. However, there are a few little steps to ensure you capture the best memory possible.

We want to do more than help you capture the unforgettable memory we want to make it easier to create the best moment you can with the least stress possible.
Recording your proposal:
Hold button for 4 seconds and the Engagement Cam ring box will power up. You will see two lights then a flashing red LED to show it’s recording
Charging the Engagement Cam:
Once plugged into a socket two lights will flash on to show charging has started then come back on and remain solid once fully charged.
Unlikely to happen as we all naturally don’t want to invade someone’s personal space but as with any proposal you don’t want to be on top of them. You want to give them a little space as they are likely to be turning to you anyhow.
When you propose you don’t want to be miles apart either. The easiest solution is to mark their height on a wall or mirror and practice capturing their face in the middle of the video. Some distance makes it easier to ensure you have the best angle.
Most of the movement to aim the Engagement Cam is in the wrists. When practising, it’s a good idea to take note of how far you’re tilting your hand forward when presenting the ring (we all naturally tilt it down and out). Once the footage is lined up with where their head would be, notice where your arms and hands are placed.
If you are planning to propose whilst down on one knee, a common position is with your hands just below your chin line.
Using an Engagement Cam is almost as simple as point and shoot however, this is a big moment in your life, so a little extra effort will make all the difference. You’re likely to be planning the proposal around what your partner would like best, just remember they probably won’t know they’ve been filmed until after. Those little touches make your marriage proposal memory extra special.
Slightly cheesy but we had fun making it so thought we would share this short whiteboard animation we put together to summarise the whole process in the simplest way we can.
For best effect:
If you’re unsure, just before you pop the question close one eye, this is about the same field of view the camera will pick up.
