The first year of a baby’s life is non-stop action and full of “first time” moments. I was not only determined to not miss a single moment of it but I just had to get everything I could on camera. I received the Flip as a gift and it is great at getting those quick first moments that so quickly pass. The camcorder is small and lightweight, which means it can easily be thrown in my purse or slipped into my husband’s back pocket. The video and sound quality is up to par with all the latest advancements in video technology, a clear picture and precise sound. I love the simple buttons and straight forward menu options. You can record, zoom, playback, and delete a video, pretty simple, even for who are technology challenged. It does take a little while for videos to load to your computer, and even longer to share on a website, like Facebook. When charging the battery it is best to use the wall charger, as it does not charge very fast connected to your USB port. I take the flip everywhere with me and love sharing my daughter's moments on Facebook with out-of-state family! Below are my daughter’s first steps, which I was sure not to miss!
