Cool little device but ...

Pretty cool little videocam gadget, but Canon's digital cameras do as good job as this is. Not much reason to carry yet yet another device.

It's been a roller-coaster news day. I was delighted to hear that Glenn Beck has been canceled, though they apparently denied the requests for him to be shot too, but dismayed to hear that Cisco is canceling the Flip video. My parents will finally have no choice but to recognize that their cell phones have cameras that do exactly the same thing.

This camera is something else.  It is no bigger than the average cell phone and is very light weight.  It comes with a sleek velvet material case to protect it when you transport it to film your movie.    The screen on the back is a little smaller than I expected but I manged to deal with it because the quality is unlike any other video camera i have used.  You are able to hit the power button and less than three seconds you are ready to film.     I …

To understand the miniaturization of video equipment you have to go back to the first moon landing in July 1969. Just in case the lunar module didn't perform as expected the astronauts set up a video camera and trained it on their spaceship. The usual count down proceeded and then suddenly the thing was gone.

The Flip Video Camcorder is a nice piece of electronics. For many people this may be the only camcorder that they will ever need. However, while this version is pretty good - I would recommend considering the newer models (see video review).    Pros-    - Handy little camera - easy to carry around  - Decent movie quality - while it is not great it is certainly good enough for YouTube  - Included software is pretty intuitive  - …

The Flip Camera is what it is: a lightweight, easy to carry, easy to use video camera that does what it's supposed to do for not a lot of money. It comes complete with a usb plug so it can be connected directly to a computer for easy uploading (no hunting for a cord), and it works with both a pc and a mac (I've used both). It's so easy to use that I've let my students at school use it to cover events and then upload them independently of me, and they never have an issue with how to operate it. In …
