Flip Cameras

Flip Camera
After eyeing the Flip camera for over one year, I finally decided to buy one.  I bought the high end(Ultra HD)  with the guarantee for three years; this covers the cost of a replacement battery (Lithium Ion internal for $50).  It captures video at 1280 x 720 resolution and produces them in a MP4 file format that you can upload using the pop-out USB connector.  I’ve been playing around with it and I’m impressed with its simplicity; four buttons and that’s all folks.  It has a zoom in/out function and software that makes creating and sharing your videos (by mail or uploading to your favorite site) super easy.   Shoot and upload with the ease!  Here’s a silly sample I made using the software that comes with Flip. .  I'll be making videos this summer to use in my classroom this fall.   

Here's another using the same clips from the Flip camcorder but I created the video with the Windows Movie Maker for Windows 7. I think the music file is superior.
