Got a Flip, Wonder If I’ll Use This Thing or Sell it on AmazonPosted: July 25, 2009
Yesterday when helping my Grandparents save $100 a month on their cable, phone and internet services, for signing up with Verizon’s bundle plan I received a Flip Ultra Series Camcorder. I am not sure how much I’ll use this thing, the older I get myself I see that trends come and go, and some fads take off, and some are only meant for those that they are directed towards.
In anyway, if your a video guru, like to have something compact and easy to use, this is it. I am not much into the video realm, nor do I make vlogs on my blog. But things might change, we’ll have to see just how much I use this in the next two to three months. If not, then I’ll be selling it on Amazon.
The Flip Video Ultra Series Camcorder is a revolutionary new way to shoot and share videos. Its portable, simple-to-use design makes it incredibly easy to create high quality home movies. The camcorder’s built-in software provides a convenient, seamless way to save and share memories: email videos, make custom movies, capture still photos from video clips, and upload videos directly to popular video-sharing sites, including AOL Video and YouTube. Flip Video Ultra is the ideal, affordable choice for capturing everyday moments that happen anywhere, and sharing them with family and friends everywhere. This next-generation version of the original Flip Video line features a new sleeker design, premium no-glare LCD screen, and improved video and audio quality. Flip Video Ultra comes with a TV connector cable, wrist strap, soft carrying case, two AA batteries, and a quick start guide. Specs: Flip Video Ultra incorporates 2GB of built-in flash memory which holds up to 60 minutes of 30-frame per second full VGA-quality MPEG-4 video. Compatible with Windows XP SP2 and Vista; Macintosh OS X 10.3.9 or later. Computer connection via integrated USB Port.
