  • Flip Video Cam (For Track Vids)

    I recently got tired of trying to use my go-pro camera due to its very buggy non cosistant working at the track, my incar camera I had was a 10 mega pixel but the videos I shot in 640x480 on the cannon only would record for 10 mins, so I often missed out on alot of video footage.

    So I was in the market looking for decent camera/recorder for my car again that lasted longer then 10 mins. I came across the Flip mino but the original ones sucked and lacked what I was looking for. Fortunately Flip made a 4meg version of this little beast that records in HD 720p .

    So far this camera looks promising, the only thing that I dislike about it is that the Mount for the camera is at the bottom and the camera is slightly longer then a lighter. But the video quality and ease of use with this thing is nice.

    1) It has Built in Software for editing, copying, or grabbing stills off of and comes with a handy TV/RCA jacks to plug straight into your TV to watch videos

    2) Its very thin

    3) Has a built in USB that flips up to plug into your PC which also charges the unit.

    I am going to make a custom bracket for this camera that will work with the Go-Pro camera mounts, Ill post some pix when its done.

    I got mine at costco for $199 and it came with a nice little tri-pod, they make a action mount you can get these on Amazon

        Thanks for posting the vid. Is there any way you can host the full vid somewhere?

        The youtube vid looks a tad bit choppy (lower frame rate) but I'm thinking that's just youtube compressing it.

          I use a non-HD 1hour flip vid for all my movies. Its pretty sweet! I've dropped it a few times and the little sucker is still at 100%. The only complaint I may have would be battery life, but a 1 hour camera on 2 double As is nice! And even then, the batteries will last quite a while.
          Do a search on youtube for user name "xbbjmg6" and those are mine.

              Awesome.. thanks.

              I was going to invest in one of those Panasonic HD cams with Advanced O.I.S. But if this little cam is good enough no point in spending more.
