The Flip Video Camcorder is an average little recording device. This is no replacement for a good camcorder if you are serious about making videos. However, whenever you want to grab some quick footage of an event this is pretty handy.
Some of the features of the Flip Video Camcorder are:
-it comes in white and orange or black
-simple to use
-it has the ability to zoom in
-it holds 60 minutes of video
-videos can be watched instantly
-videos can be uploaded to Youtube or e-mailed
-you can capture photos from video
The Flip Video Camcorder produces the best results when you hold it steady and move it very smoothly especially if you want to try to capture still photos from your footage.
Once you have a video that you would like to upload you simply pull the switch on the side of the Flip Video Camcorder and a little flash drive flips out and you can just plug it into the USB port on your computer.
One thing that might not be a good idea about this camcorder is that the video footage you record is large in size and may not e-mail well, unless you have a high-capacity email account such as Gmail.
One thing I would like to see the makers of this product to work on is getting this camcorder to record clearer footage and on improving the microphone too. The microphone picks up the sound of wind outside if it's windy but I suppose most microphones do. The camcorder works best when there is a lot of light.
Overall a good little camcorder for beginners or like I said for quick footage of an event because this camcorder is small enough to carry anywhere you go.
