I'm a Flipper

Photo from here

I got my new Flip Mino HD yesterday and cannot wait to start using it to annoy everyone around me. So far, Sissy and I have just been goofing around, but I really am going to work it when we go to San Antonio to Scootie's graduation from boot camp. I hope I will be singing its praises from the rooftoops and not picking up the pieces after I've slammed it to the ground in frustration. We shall see. Of course, I am not being compensated in ANY way for my opinions (however, I wish I was!), which are just that. MY opinions. So far, so good. I was able to slip it in my pocket this morning on my way out the door with no annoying need for extra batteries, connecting cables, chargers, etc.

The website was super easy to order from, and the design options are excellent. You can even make your own, with your own photo! I did not choose that option ( I chose the design above), but if I order another in the future, I probably will. Also, because I ordered directly from Flip, I got a free accessory! I chose the power adapter, which allows you to charge the camera in any standard power outlet (instead of plugging into a computer).  There are bunches of retailers you can buy this camera from like Best Buy, Office Depot, Target, WalMart, etc. but you would be limited in what colors you could purchase at these places.

So, stay tuned for videos and we'll see how we like this little gadget. IF I can keep Sissy from converting it to her own use.


  1. Had to stop by to see who my new follower was! Everyone seems to LOVE these Flips... making me wonder what I'm missing, just using my digital camera to take video.

    Btw... your kids are gorgeous!

    Justine :o )

  2. Hey! I got the Flip for my husband for Christmas!

    Most what we have recorded are the cats chasing string or making little fuzzy fools out of themselves for catnip. :-)
