About a week ago, I borrowed my friend's Flip Video Camera and I was SOLD! In case you have not yet seen it yet, The Flip MinoHD™ Video Camera records high-quality H.264 videos that work with iTunes, iMovie and iPhoto - and besides that, they're super fun! Click here to take a closer look. And you can read an article in the NY Times on the product here.

At first, I was a little hesitant because I am camera shy - unless of course it is a still shot that I can delete and re-take until the PERFECT photo comes out. I was using my friend's Flip, tiny, hand held, video camera, to record my evening. The first few shots were poor because I was all weird and nervous. By the end of the night, I was a real pro! We were having dinner and champagne at NoMi on the rooftop and people around me were quite annoyed. Especially because I incorporated them into my shots without their consent.

The camera was incredibly easy to use, so easy I thought I was doing it wrong! There are literally three or four buttons. Record, rewind, stop and erase. It is that simple. There isn't a "flash" so you have to have adequate lighting. You can create a one-of-a-kind pattern for your Flip Mino if you like, you can customize various colors and patterns like these below.

You can start designing your own custom Flip video camcorder now!

Most of all, I would say that it is a super affordable ($149 to $229), convenient toy, user friendly to point of being idiot proof, takes great shots and fits in your pocket. Uploading is super easy, it uses a USB connection. You can even get fun accessories like a Flip video camera tripod! The tripod is also super affordable $14.99 with Free Shipping. I cannot speak more highly about this great, fun camera. It is is also great for uploading to You Tube & your Blog! Which I hope to do soon.

I think this video basically says it all!!!
