Flip Video MinoHD Camcorder
If you want to have a ton of fun shooting HD video, forget expensive equipment, get a Flip Video MinoHD for only $200.
The Flip Mino HD can shoot 720p high definition video at 30 frames per second, in 16:9 widescreen. It has 4 gigs of internal memory, which translates to roughly 60 minuites of shooting time.
Want to get the video you just shot out of the camera? Press a button, and a USB connector flips out of the camera, and you can plug it right into your computer. No wires, nothing goofy, just shoot, plug it in, and enjoy.
It also comes with the FlipShare software that lets you organize and edit your videos.
Also, if you are a hacker and want to really show off, you can combine two of these, do some editing magic, and make your own homebrew 3d video rig for less than a normal digital camcorder.
If you want to record on the go and want some really high quality video out of this device, get yourself the $12 gorilla pod that is made for the flip, and you can easily set it anywhere to record without the shakes in almost any location.
