All I want for Valentines is a Flip camera
Actually I already have one, but if I didn’t, I’d probably ask for one since these slim cameras are amazing.The Mino HD features 720p resolution, and 4GB of memory, while the non-HD Mino carries 2 GB of memory. Both offer 60 minutes of recording time and all-new built-in FlipShare software for easy saving, organizing and sharing of video from your computer. Mino and Mino HD are the first and only “designable” camcorders so you can upload you graphics, and design your own Flip via Cafe Press. As you can see from the image above, that’s exactly what I did with my Flip, and love it.
Flip also comes with built-in software that allows you to plug the camcorder’s flip-out USB arm into any computer for saving, organizing, editing and uploading of video to YouTube, MySpace, AOL Video and other sharing sites. All Flip camcorders are fully compatible with Windows software as well as Apple’s Mac video applications including QuickTime, iMovie, and iDVD.
These area great cameras for people who don’t like to carry heavy gear (it’s about the size of an MP3 player) and don’t want to bother with transcoding video for YouTube. If you haven’t gotten your Valentine a gift just yet, you can still get them one at www.theFlip.com. They also have gift certificates, so you have no excuse.
Weighing just over 3 oz., the slim Mino retails for $179.99, and MinoHD, $229.
