Bargain Alert! Flip Video Ultra for $49.99


One of my favorite gadgets, the Flip Video Ultra Series Camcorder, 30-Minutes (White) is on sale today at Amazon for less than $50.

This is the camera I use regularly to film my boys and other exciting happenings in my life. It’s small enough to tuck into your pocket, so you’ll always have it with you when fun breaks out. Here are a few of the technical specs:

  • Simple to use, pocket-sized camcorder with one-touch recording and digital zoom
  • Holds 30 minutes of full VGA-quality video on 1GB of built-in memory; no tapes or additional memory cards required
  • Convenient USB arm plugs directly into your computer for easy viewing and sharing
  • Built-in software lets you easily e-mail videos, upload to YouTube and AOL, and capture still photos from video
  • Watch videos instantly on TV with included cable

If you’re looking for a fun graduation present or something cooler than a tie for Father’s Day, I’d recommend the Flip Video Ultra Series Camcorder, 30-Minutes (White) as a great gift idea!  Here’s a video my son took this weekend at a concert under low lighting conditions.  The camera-work is a bit unsteady, but you can hear that the sound is terrific:

    Cool! Thanks for the alert. Maybe I should buy it for the CNMC and be ready for the workshop. I had planned to borrow one from a fellow teacher.

  2. Barb – I love mine! The only downside is the zoom range, so it’s not perfect for far distance videos, but aside from that I love it! The best thing is how handy it is. I may need to buy another one now that my boys are constantly borrowing mine. For this price, I might buy one for each of them!
