Here is why I am in like with the flip. You know I like to do music videos and video clips right? Well.. duh. You read my blog. You know this. So this little gadget is about the size of a medium sized cell phone and takes one hour of medium quality digital video! UHHHH YEAH! Then it has this little attachment that pops out and hooks straight into your computer. THEN up pops this software that will automatically upload your video to youtube... remix it into a movie for you using your music or theirs... let you take digital pictures from the video you took and save it to your picture files... save the videos to your computer or WHATEVER! All that and this little sucker was $150 at Best Buy. SAY WHAT??? This is AMAZING! I am in MAJOR LIKE!
Actually all of the video clips from Zoe's birthday were taken with my new flip. AWESOME! Do you know what this means for us when I go to AFRICA and CHINA? It means lots of AWESOME videos without me breaking my neck carrying my gargantical (yes I made up a word) video camera. I can just carry it around in my little ol purse all the time. OH!!!! It also runs on AA lithium batteries and apparently if you make SURE they are lithium they will last a long time. I just have to carry extras in my purse and no more freak outs about not having charged the video camera. Not only that... This is much less intrusive than a video camera so people don't feel so intimidated or notice this huge thing stuck on my head. :0) OH and I can take pictures FROM the video. Of course my camera is a million times better and I will always use it for photo sessions but it's nice that I can just carry this in my purse for capturing spontanious fun! My camera is too big to carry all the time. So it's great to have BOTH now. I AM SO STINKIN SPOILED!
It's not even funny how spoiled I am now. :0) Soooo I just had to share this with you. It's my new favorite toy and I had to tell you about cause every momma should be so blessed as to have this. It's a great toy. I swear they are not paying me to say this although I would be glad to recieve a check! ;0) Check them out at theflip.com...
