An Early Birthday Gift

Because I will be busy with a newborn by early December at the latest, I am working on finishing up Christmas shopping right now. I sent out an email to my family letting them know there is only one thing I want for Christmas: a Flip Video camera. My parents pointed out that my birthday is between now and Christmas and today my very own Flip Video camera arrived in the mail from them. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

I have had the Flip in my possession for about an hour and a half and I love it as much as I thought I would! It is small (slightly larger than my cell phone), has exactly 7 buttons, and the instruction manual is only about 4-6 pages long (mostly pictures). EASY, easy, easy! I have the 2GB camera which hold an hour of video. The best part -- they cost between $100-$150.

Thanks, Mom and Dad -- I love it already!

Just for a test run, Mitch took this video in a darkened room thus the lack of light and was talking very quietly.

Ooohh--that is very affordable! All I have is the video function on my digital camera--but it only takes 30 seconds of video. Is there an easy way to save videos from your videocamera onto a CD?

I haven't tried burning to DVD, but it's on my list. Right now we use Roxio (I believe it is available as free download), but I'd like to be able to just burn from the Flip software. I will keep you posted.
