I bought a Flip Video today from Amazon who are doing a great deal with 23% off.
This is an amazing little video camera. It’s light, easy to use, auto focus and one button to use. It looks good, has been well designed and because you access the video files bu USB connection (which flips up) does not even waste battery power on file transfers like most other cameras.
It’s snowing outside and I’ve shot a little video in incredibly low light and it looks fine. The whole process from unwrapping, to putting batteries in, shooting the vid and uploading it on You Tube took less than 10 minutes. This is so simple to use and gives just as good an image – I’ve experimented in good light but to post that would mean showing me – and that ain’t gonna happen! You can see the unimaginative snow video here which was taken at about 10.30pm.
If you are looking for a great video camera go for the flip – its cool.
