Several days ago, I purchased a Flip Mino HD Camcorder (hereafter referred to as “the Flip”). I was hoping that Kate and I could use this device to record some of our sentimental moments as a family. I also thought that it might be helpful for some personal projects that have been sitting on my proverbial shelf.
When the Flip arrived, I removed the camcorder from its well-designed packaging, threw the instructions aside, and began my test drive. I chose the Flip because it was small (3.94″ x 1.97″ x 0.63″), affordable ($200), and ready to shoot in HD. The Flip did not disappoint. Simple, intuitive, and surprisingly capable, I had my wife and son out in the yard for our first video within minutes.
Thanks to this device, you should expect some new video features on the site sometime in the near future.
