Digtial video camera

I currently have an sony dvd-rw deal. Like it but hate having to convert to mp3/4 or whatever it is. Any suggestions. Mainly for forum checks and short video's. Black berry isn't cutting it. Thanks Pat

Re: Digtial video camera

Pat,
I have the FLIP video camera and it is awesome. It saves to flash memory and you just upload on your computer. I have a Mac and all I do is plug it in and start making vid's in imovie. It is around $199 for the 8GB(2 hour Memory) and $149 for the 4GB (1 hour memory). I got mine at Best Buy but I have seen them all over. The week after I bought mine it was on sale for $179. It is a little bigger than a cell phone so it makes it easy to take to gym.

Hope this helps.

Re: Digtial video camera

i also have a flip
this one
WFS
http://www.amazon.com/Flip-Ultra-Cam...7718791&sr=8-2

116-150$ depending on where u buy it.
i love it.
its small enough to carry in your pocket like a cell phone, thus leading to catching random stuff on film
good quality.


they have an HD version too for 150-200$
found here

Right now I'm just using my still camera which can take videos as well. But I'd like to get a flip soon. Oh, and the gorillapod is awesome if you need a little versatile tripod. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss?ur...rds=gorillapod (WFS)

Re: Digtial video camera

I don't if the deal's still going, but 2 weeks ago I picked up a Kodak Zi8 which has been getting pretty favorable reviews. It records up to 1080p/30fps, but I bought it for the 720p/60fps so I can record my o-lifts. Built in USB adapter and saves to SDHD cards (my 4GB card that I had laying around will save 42 minutes at 720p/60fps), it also has a built in HDMI output via an included dongle cable.

Retails for $180, can be found for like $150-160, I bought it for $137 shipped! Search Fatwallet and Slickdeals for deals.
