Flip Video camera: $180, YouTube friendly

As I was checking out a DVD at my local Blockbuster Video store earlier today, I saw a small video camera called Flip Video for sale there. Price: $180, stores 1 hour worth of video, looks like it is very easy to use & the best part is that it has a USB arm that plugs into the computer; no cable needed. Looks like it is a cheap & easy to use YouTube machine - a device created pretty much for people interested in easily capturing home/amature/non-professional quality video & getting it up on YouTube & other similar sites. I guess this camera has been around for a few months now, but the first time I found out about it was today. Might make a nice gift for someone who is interested in getting some stuff up on YouTube but is not interested in doing the post-production stuff that comes with shooting on tape.

Could be fun. I think I'm going to pick one up.

Thanks for that. I'm a photography student at Florida State University and I recently got a grant to photograph/document in the Galapagos Islands. I came across your blog searching for small camcorders that I could use to document the interviews and events that my camera could not. Do you think I would need more than this?

So you have a main camera & you are thinking about buying a Flip as a second camera?

You may want to get one, test it out, & if it does not meet your needs, return it (get it from a place where you are able to return it).

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.
