Flip Video Camcorder – Super Simple

This flip video is so simple to use folks are leaving their fancy camcorders at home and taking this one in their pockets instead. It even comes with a bicycle attachment so you can record your biking tour vistas.

The flip video went from a no-name
to beat Sony's camcorder. It's not just it's simplicity to record (press red button to start, press again to stop), it's the simplicity of uploading to your PC. Confession time, how many of us have shoe boxes of video cassettes or mini-DVs in our closets, because we haven't figured out yet how to upload them to our PC to edit and share it with friends and family? With the flip video, you, errrh, flip the USB cable and plug it into your USB slot on your PC. Just like that. Play the video below to see demo.

Prices of these Flip Videos (now in designer colors) have dropped again at least $20 at Amazon.

  1. How do I drag a jpeg not from the flip video just shot, to appear as the video background with my audio?
    My jpeg is my branding logo.
    Thank you.

  2. Since I downloaded the new version of software for my Flip Ultra, all of the video clips I download are in reverse order, making it impossible for me to conveniently make complete videos editing the clips together.

    When I downloaded video clips before and then tried to make a movie, they were all in chronological order.

    Now when I try to make a movie, the clips are in reverse order making it almost impossible to move around, especially when you have more than 20 clips, which I often do.

    If you stop-and-start and make 10 short videos to stitch together to make one longer movie, it’s almost impossible because the videos are downloaded in the wrong order. So to make a coherent movie, you have to move the first one to the last order, the second video to the second-to-the-last order, and so on. It used to download in the correct order, but since this last “upgrade”, mixes up the videos so they are unusable.

  3. How do I put flip videos on DVD?

  4. I have the same problem with making the movies in chronological order. It pisses me off that I cant easily make movies. I told the guys at Flip to fix this problem but its taking forever to make this simple software fix!

  5. what linier editing software would u suggest for flip camcorder video?

    is there any plug in avaiable for importing MPEG format into adobe premier ?

    thanks in advance

  6. Yea, when I try to mix my videos into a movie, it loads but at the end it stops loading and freezes. help?

  7. The flip software may be easy but if you think about it, it cant do anything other than puting videos together with one simple transition, and you can only trim your videoclips. While for some users that might be enough, some people want to put efects in their "movie" like slow motion and different transitions. The flipshare software doesnt do that and the mp4 files that the flip makes are not compatible with windows moviemaker or some other softwares.

    • There are definitely pntley of details like that to take into consideration. That may be a great point to carry up. I provide the ideas above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions just like the one you deliver up the place an important thing can be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged round issues like that, however I'm positive that your job is clearly recognized as a fair game. Both girls and boys really feel the impact of just a second’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

  8. You can convert the files…see below…and use Movie Maker
    How to use Flip Mino HD videos in Movie Maker:
    Open FlipShare and from the menu …
    Select SHARE
    Select ONLINE
    Select OTHERS

    • I loved as much as you'll receive caeirrd out right here. The sketch is attractive, your authored subject matter stylish. nonetheless, you command get bought an impatience over that you wish be delivering the following. unwell unquestionably come further formerly again since exactly the same nearly a lot often inside case you shield this hike.

  9. I do think that this little gadget has got what all it takes to be a feature in many articles and that too in some of the most renowned gadget magazines such as stuff and T3. After all, if we look in closely, we can see that the Flip really is a head turner, if not a body turner, especially with the kind of opening it has and how much easy can it be used provided its portability. The only thing I have found as an issue is its picture clarity, which I must say needs improvement!

  10. The question about clips being downloaded in reverse chronological order – I can answer a year later — Seems to me you just go to the top right drop down menu on the Flip software, and choose the order you want, so you can reverse the chronology in one click.
    I find the pop-up window a little hard to maneuver to choose the clips, sometimes they are hidden behind the window, but I have made some cute little movies anyway, it's not exactly cinematography – but lots of fun!

  11. Wow! This is one of a brilliant-written article!

  13. What a material of un-ambiguity and preserveness of valuable experience about unpredicted feelings.

  14. Webcams can do a lot of things, such as video conferencing, virtual
    advertising, workplace or home surveillance, event broadcast, and many other
    functions. I haven't really owned the mouse long enough to test the battery life, but Logitech claims it can run for up to two years on a single pair of batteries, and several other reviews I've found online attest to
    that fact. Remember, no matter what things you do, make your audiences concentrate
    on the most important part of your tutorial video, if only for a minute.
