Two weeks ago, I was interviewed by Jemima Kiss from The Guardian.
She did the interview using a Mino Flip Cam.
She propped it up on a pile of plates and let loose. Then she plugged it into her laptop, and in a few minutes, my interview was on the Guardian’s website.
Now that was impressive.
The video then went viral, and that was even more impressive.
So I went and ordered a flipcam from Amazon.
It was $179.99 plus tax and shipping last week. Now I see it’s down to $159.00
And it works great. So simple.
OK. No one is going to argue that this is broadcast quality… yet.
But they are coming out with an HD model very soon.
What I have been using it for the most is Vmail.
You record your message, you plug it into the laptop and its got an ’email this video’ function.
And so simple.
The only problem with it is you can’t flip the screen so you can see the framing. But you can’t have everything.
