TRAVEL PRODUCT OF THE WEEK: Flip Video

Flip Video
Most everyone has a digital camera these days. But surprisingly, most people don’t realize that their little camera also shoots video. If you don’t believe me, just look for a movie camera icon in your options. If it’s there, you’re good to go! Of course, if you’d read your manual, you’d have known this already but who reads those boring things? However, even with the video option, it’s still not an ideal way to capture video since it takes up much more space than photographs on your camera’s memory card. And then you have to download everything …

Your next best option is to get a video camera but not only are they expensive but they’re bulky, too. That’s where the Flip Video and all of its spinoffs come in. The Flip is a little device that shoots nothing but video and is so easy to use, even my father can figure it out. Sorry Dad, but you’re not the most technologically inclined person I know. If you want to shoot an hour’s worth of video and be able to play it back immediately or download it straight to your computer using the camera’s built-in flip USB port (hence the name Flip Video), then check it out. Oh yeah, the best part: They’re inexpensive and the battery charges when you plug it in to your laptop. I have the Flip Mino, which is the new skinny version of the Flip Video, and it rocks! The Mino sells for $179.99, the Ultra goes for $149.99 and the Flip retails at $129.99.
