Flip Mino HD

Sooner than you thought - HD size in the palm of your hand By Ko Maruyama
While its original camera has been out for a year - the newest offering in the Flip line up is now HD.  And, while this tiny camera offers a simple version of the HD spec, the 1280 video does give you the option to easily feed the clips into your HD timeline without difficult scale manipulation.

The world's smallest HD camcorder at just over 3 oz., the Flip Mino HD makes capturing and sharing high-quality HD video easy and affordable for the first time. The stylish, fit-in-your-pocket $229.00 (MSRP) camcorder from Pure Digital Technologies can record up to 60 minutes of HD video and features Flip Video's new FlipShare software. The best-of-breed on-board software allows consumers to plug the camcorder's signature flip-out USB arm into any computer for organizing, editing and instant video sharing on YouTube, MySpace, AOL Video or via email.

This latest innovation from Pure Digital Technologies builds on the success of its popular Flip Video camcorder line. After just one full year in the marketplace, Flip Video has sold over 1.5 million camcorders and currently has the number one best-selling camcorder in the U.S., according to the latest rankings from market research firm NPD.

With its introduction, Mino HD also becomes the first and only "designable" HD camcorder. Using Flip Video's next-generation personalization platform, launched last month, consumers can choose from thousands of professional designs or custom-design their own Flip Mino HD camcorder at no extra cost. Additionally, consumers have the option to share their designs on to earn commissions for themselves or non-profit causes.
Flip Mino HD comes equipped with FlipShare--Flip Video's new built-in software application. FlipShare features a simple drag-and-drop interface to make it easier than ever for Flip owners to organize, edit and share their videos.  FlipShare enables fast and simple video emailing and one-click uploading to YouTube, MySpace, and AOL Video.  Users can also create movies, complete with music and credits, and capture HD still photos from their videos. FlipShare is fully compatible with Windows software as well as Apple's Mac video applications including QuickTime, iMovie, and iDVD.  It is also available as an upgrade to anyone who owns a Flip Video camcorder.
Flip Mino HD is the perfect combination of simplicity, quality and sleek design. It features an internal rechargeable lithium ion battery and 4GB of on-board flash memory.
