The new Flip Video Camera- one not to live without!

I just purchased the new Flip Mino Video Camera for $149 from Target last week and since then my life has been caught on camera! Filmed documentary style, this camera is so simple, fun and convenient to use.  Like writing that first blog, it takes a bit of practice, but soon I'll be able to link my Youtube videos to my website, Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter and my Blog. This is truly how social media can be used to capture a variety of audiences.

Last week I filmed a documentary style video of my client's "Closing Day" and sent it to her in an ecard (this will remain confidential unless she agrees to release it online). 

Just today I filmed my children going off to school, added music, and created something that will shed tears from me for years to come!  How long did it take me? Less than 10 minutes (2 minutes of filming, 30 seconds to upload as the camera plugs into the USB port of my computer, 2 minutes to create the video and add a title and credits, 1 minute to select music, and then upload anywhere I want.

The videos are transferred into the computer as a WMV. file so no need to purchase software to convert it for later use on Youtube. As a matter of fact, it offers a Youtube share feature right on the Flip software.

If you don't have one of these cameras yet but are curious about making and uploading videos, this is the simplest to use, and the batteries recharge everytime you plug it into your computer.

I have wanted one of these for awhile now.  Everyone I have heard anything from just raves over it and how simple it is to use.
