Flip Video Review - Even You Can "YouTube"

The full line of Flip Video recorders

It wasn't too long ago that a home video camera was big, heavy and bulky, with video quality that left much to be desired.  Now, nearly a decade into the new millennium, the home video revolution has taken a new, dramatic turn.  Introducing: Flip Video, an ultra-convenient line of camcorders designed to shoot anything and share everything!  Welcome to the future.

In May 2007, Pure Digital Technologies introduced Flip Video™, a new line of digital camcorders designed to revolutionize how everyday consumers shoot and share video.  These remarkably simple and affordable devices feature a major advance in video sharing technology combined with an ultra-portable design and easy video capture and editing. Developed with Internet video sharing software integrated into the device, Flip Video is the first camcorder to seamlessly upload directly to YouTube and other online video sharing sites. Available at major retailers nationwide, Flip Video camcorders capture life's spontaneous moments, no matter where or when they occur. The camcorder retails at $119.99 for the 30-minute model and $149.99 for the 60-minute model.

"With Flip Video, Pure Digital has created a brand new category of camcorder that puts the power to instantly capture, edit, and share video in the pocket of everyday consumers," said Jonathan Kaplan, Chairperson and CEO of Pure Digital Technologies. " Flip Video has the potential to forever change the way people use this increasingly popular medium."

Flip Video's built-in software allows people to share videos as easily as they would digital photos. In addition to instant emailing, the program allows videos to be uploaded directly to popular Internet video sharing sites, including YouTube. Creative users can also edit their clips, make custom movie mixes, add their own music, capture still photos from video, and even design video greeting cards.

The Flip Video packages, they make great gifts

" Flip Video is a new breed of camcorder that recognizes and leverages the tremendous demand for video sharing." said Kelly Liang, Business Development, YouTube. "Not only does Flip Video make it easy to capture video, it also makes it simple to instantly share it with friends, family or the world via YouTube."

In September 2007, Pure Digital introduced Flip Video Ultra, showcasing their next-generation video processing technology, which delivers stunning video and sound quality, even when played on large-screen TVs!  The Ultra Series continues Pure Digital’s pioneering of a new category of camcorder that puts the power to instantly capture, edit and share video in the pocket of everyday consumers.
