A tailgate party is never static — the more people laughing, joking, eating, drinking and moving around, the better. But that makes capturing those great moments for posterity (or proof) a lot harder. Many of us have mobile devices, but they’re not always at the ready.
Don’t worry about fumbling in your pocket when you can have a camera already recording the events. Here’s what you need to make sure that when something worth remembering happens, you’ve captured it.
