Last year Santa left one of these little goodies under our tree and we’ve put it to good use over the past year. I absolutely love it’s small size. If I’ve got something to videotape at the elementary school this goes in my purse and comes out when it’s time to tape. No lugging around an extra bag. The kids love to “borrow” it and film each other. One day we found twenty videos (all under two minutes long) of my son just rambling on and telling silly jokes.
When I’m done recording I plug it right into my computer and transfer the file over. From there I can edit my videos, make movies, email them out or upload them somewhere fun. It seriously could not be easier. Our Flip camera is a “first generation” and will only record 60 minutes of video. It’s been plenty for us because when we’re running out of space we just clean it off. Now they’ve got a version that will hold two hours of video and you could store oodles of good stuff on there.
I love, love, love this gadget. Santa purchased ours at Costco but the link here will take you to Amazon where you can hear other people sing Flip’s praises.
*Update – Today I began following @FlipVideoBrand on Twitter and found out that if you become a fan on Facebook you can get $15 off a Flip and free shipping. Not a bad deal at all. http://bit.ly/1paY6A
